Thank the Lord Ruler I finally crawled out from whatever rock I was living under and finally decided to read this book.
I have been telling myself for years that I should try and branch out from just romance, paranormal romance, UF romance, sci-fi alien smut and the occasional murder mystery or biography (not that there is a damn thing wrong with my beloved romance, but just to challenge myself to try something new) and attempt to tackle a straight high fantasy.
Well, this book was my first true foray into that genre and all I can say is…
Jay kay, peeps, jay kay.
Just making sure I live down to your expectations. *wink*
In all sincerity though, this book was everything and I truly don’t know why I waited so long to tackle this genre.
Comic/Sci-Fi/Fantasy movies are my all time FAVORITE movie genres.
And this book felt like I was locked in one of them.
Like I was in a theater watching an epic fantasy film.
Because we ALL know the book is always better.
Brandon Sanderson is now a front runner in the Val’s Spirit Animal Games and I just want to sit across from him at a pub table and watch him breathe.
His world building is so amazing, I can’t even.
I was enthralled from page one until page end.
This is an older book and and I’m late to the fiesta, so I’ll stop there; but long story short, I loved this thing so hard I might sleep with it under my pillow for a while.
And the best part?
There are now aisles of books at the bookstore that I feel have suddenly been opened to me.
So glad I tried something new.
I feel so mature.
Three cheers for Garth.
