Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Sanderson is an exceptional writer, as his stories always contain characters that your interested in learning more about - and his plots compel you to keep reading. Not a bad combination.
This particular series could be classified as a young adult story, but like the best of some other writers, this can and should be ready by any age. The main protagonist is a girl who has a fairly rare ability that appears to be genetic in that she can 'see' space in ways most can't. Unlike some of his other writings this is science fiction rather than fantasy.
I really enjoyed it. If you like reading you will as well.
Sci-fi with a FEMALE protagonist! That, alone, was enough to get me to take a look.
I'm incredibly picky about fic I read and nearly didn't buy this series because it's written in 1st Person. Boy, would I have missed out. The best stories are stories that stick with you after you're finished reading...not because what you read was unfinished, but because what you read was so compelling you yearn for more.
Tight plotting, great characters, original setting and premise, this series was great, start-to-finish. I'm off to purchase anything else Sanderson has published, sight unseen. Looking forward to more hours of entertainment.
I am a space war/conflict junkie and I truly enjoyed the story. It was not overly predictable and the story kept you turning pages. The interaction with the ship AI was epic. My kind of story and the one of the best I have read in a while.
I really had a bit of angst after the way the second book ended. It was a classic "wait until the next book comes out and see". I prefer books that finish the story because I like to have closure...but I get it.
This is the fourth series of Sanderson's I've read since he adeptly finished the Wheel of Time series after the creator's untimely death. The excellent quality of writing and character development remain the same but he tackles different story types and genres equally well. There is certainly room for more stories to come and I hope we don't have to wait long for them.
Brandon does again in this book his amazing smithing that takes you along the journey of an angry adolescent as they grow into compassion and understanding of others. I loved the resolution as it was what I would (hope) have done, gone beyond fear into oneness.
