Elantris was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. And now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium motivated by dogged religious views. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, rediscover the lost magic and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

    As an avid fantasy reader, this story captured me completely, and was another total win for the wonderful Brandon Sanderson (I haven't yet read anything of his I haven't liked).

    This book is based in a fantasy world that once saw the city of Elantris and all its power in a god like manner. Then Elantris fell and one of the main characters is pulled into Elantris through no means of his own. Mr Sanderson's gift of words takes you on an adventure which leaves you trying to turn the pages faster than you can read them, attempting to find out what happens next.

    This book has everything that a good fantasy novel needs. Realistic system of magic? tick. Gripping plots? tick. Characters you love? tick. Well played Mr Sanderson, well played.
