Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Hi everyone...

I just finished reading "Elantris" by Brandon Sanderson and I must say that it was a great story! I only picked up the book because I wanted to see what kind of author is going to complete the Wheel of Time series...
I must admit that I'm still not sure whether Mr. Sanderson can finish the Series adequately, it's rather complex after all, but I'm pretty sure that Volume 12 will be good book.

"Elantris" is a very compelling story, and I practically could not put the book down. It has been quite some time since I last devoured a book like I did this one.
Unfortunatley I have (once again) been unable to find this book (or any of sadnerson's books apart from a free sample) as ebooks, so if you want to read this (and I really suggest you do so if you like fantasy books) then you'll either have to buy the paper book or visit the darknet...or both...

Jordan left behind an outline and comprehensive notes on what he intended for the last book. He knew there was a good chance he would not live to complete it. And his wife, who was also his editor, will be editing book 12 too. She was the one who selected Sanderson as the one to complete the series, so it's obvious she thinks he can, and will no doubt provide careful guidance.

Jordan had completed some work on it. The challenge will be whether you can tell where Jordan left off and Sanderson began. If you can't, call it a success.

I have just posted Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. It's set in the Eleantris universe but is sead to be stand alone. It's due out in 2009 sometime. I cannot ay he won't revise it between now and then, but there it is... in LRF, IMP, and PRC. Go for it!
