Brandon Sanderson - A Bright Light in Fantasy

For those in the know, Brandon Sanderson has been chosen to finish off the final title (or two, or three) in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. It's a pretty serious role he's been given - and one that he wholly deserves.

Sanderson is the author of the Mistborn Trilogy, Elantris, and his newest book, Warbreaker. Now, I haven't read the Mistborn Trilogy yet (I promise I'll get to it soon), however I read Elantris when it was first released and loved it!

I was excited to read Warbreaker when it was published, but also nervous as sometimes I find an author seems to expend all of his/her creative energy on the first book, and there's nothing new in future releases. Not so Warbreaker! The characters are smart, funny and human, the plot intricate with a heart-pounding ending just as thrilling as the final twist in Elantris.

If you haven't tried Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker is a great place to start. If you have, his newest book will not disappoint!
