    THE FINAL EMPIRE (MISTBORN)

    I have to admit that I started this book without any expectations at all (while I’ve since read quite a bit of Brandon Sanderson, at the time I had not known any of his work). As a big SciFi and Fantasy fan I have read many more series, authors and books that aren’t worth any […]

    THE WAY OF KINGS – STORMLIGHT ARCHIVES 1

    Like many others I had heard of Brandon Sanderson due to his assumption of the completion of The Wheel of Time. I then thought I would explore his writing to determine how someone I had never heard of before could have been selected to complete this epic work. Exploring his writing with the Mistborn Trilogy […]

    STEELHEART

    Hopefully by this point in time you’ve realized that I’m a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson’s work (my review of The Rithmatist is here and also one of his books in the epic Wheel of Time series – The Gathering Storm).  I’m always in awe of his creativity and to be honest his throughput frankly […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME: TOWERS OF MIDNIGHT

    Something is wrong. I was all set to really love this book – having just finished The Way of Kings and as someone who’s now read almost everything that Brandon Sanderson has written I thought his writing was something I really liked and enjoyed … but … there was something … missing with this book. […]

    THE HERO OF AGES (MISTBORN)

    This book was one that I took with me on a long road trip.  I expected it to last me at least half the trip, but I quickly found that this one more than the other two was one that I just could not put down.  While I was bored for the rest of my […]

    THE RITHMATIST

    I think I’ve said this before in some of my other posts, so I apologize for the repetition, but I just don’t know how he does it? Every time I think I’ve read everything written by the man, I find more books that I’ve still not read (I’m now working my way through an audio […]

    Warbreaker

    I’ve read most everything that Brandon Sanderson has published now including the two newest Wheel of Time books (reviews here & here), his Mistborn series (reviewed here), his newest Magnum Opus – The Way of Kings (reviewed here) and finally most recently Warbreaker. Eventually I will get to the Elantris series also and will post […]

    THE WHEEL OF TIME – THE GATHERING STORM

      While I would be amongst the first to state that Jordan’s writing style is not the best (please note – when I state Jordan’s style is not the best, this primarily refers to his long windedness (I know, that’s not even a word!) and the way that he sometimes tends to repeat the story […]
