Period." - Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind [ STAR ]"Snappy dialogue, bizarre plot twists, high intensity action, and a touch of mystery and romance; it's a formula that sucks readers into the prologue, slings them through one tension-filled encounter after the other, and then...leaves them panting for the sequel." - Booklist , Starred "The near-constant action, Sanderson's whiz-bang imaginings, and a fully realized sense of danger... make this an absolute page-turner." - Publishers Weekly "Perfect for genre fans who love exciting adventure stories with surprising plot twists." - School Library Journal
