Description

I followed behind as she took one of the lamps, blew out the others, and we finally left the room. Turned out, we’d been in some kind of side chamber of the great hall, pretty close to where I’d been dropped. I guess that made sense.

I slipped out from behind the four-and-a-half-out-of-five-tree and found that my skills as a sneak were exceptional. I moved through the rows of partially-grown plants, barely making a sound, despite the darkness. Awesome. Perhaps I was a ninja. Orange-cloak nodded to her and left, the younger man trailing after. The entire structure shook as he shut the door with force, and—though I was getting light-headed—I found his interaction with the woman curious. She wasn’t bowing or scraping nearly as much as I might have assumed. Barely a m’lord mentioned. This book is hands down the worst Sanderson book I've ever read. It has elements of the Sanderson I love to read, the Sanderson I described first, the Sanderson who birthed a Cosmere full of planets with unique magic systems that didn't seem connected at all until suddenly they were. Like those stories, there IS a compelling world in this book. It's not part of the Cosmere, but it could almost be our world if only our pagan gods were real and the events in our history had played out a bit differently. I wanted to know more about this version of Europe that he'd created! I mean, Christianity is consolidated into Zoroastrianism?! As a historian, I want to play in a sandbox where that is reality! Do not be ashamed of your joy… Regardless of what aelv Ryan says. This is not a thing of shame. It is why I fight. It is why my sons bled. Never be ashamed of joy.” This Brandon is lame and clueless. This is the Brandon that Wired journalist Jason Kehe unfairly zeroed in on in his widely lambasted article "Brandon Sanderson Is Your God." Like many other Sanderson fans, I found the article to be a poor review of Sanderson, but after reading "The Frugal Wizard's" Guide to Whatever, I think... I think he might be right. A little bit. Not completely, but... enough to make me feel some embarrassment at ever having recommended Sanderson to other readers.It looked sturdy enough, though I’d have expected something tall and stone. Castle-like. To find a wooden one left me a tad disappointed. I withheld my review for now, though. Maybe it was period accurate. Ni lo sé, ni me importa. No le pondré final a esta historia pues su trama y sus personajes no me han gustado lo más mínimo. Nefasto. I wasn’t used to this kind of primal darkness. The shadows seemed deeper, as if strengthened by the knowledge that I couldn’t control them with the flip of the switch. I moved among the silent homes anyway, and found that there couldn’t be more than twenty buildings here. All of a triangular shape, wood and thatch. Two out of five. Probably has terrible wifi. Sanderson’s experimental and bizarre comedic sci-fi novel with the theme of redemption will be a big hit or miss. Sefawynn stepped closer, watching me with suspicion. Yeah, this looked like a classic weakness-feint, and she likely worried I’d make a play for the knife. Instead, I forced out a wan smile.

Call everyone together,” the firm voice eventually said. “We’ll put out sacrifices tonight, as if from a harvest. And Hild…that skop. Did she leave yet?”El libro se presenta a si mismo como una sátira, para mayor disfrute debes adentrarte en el tono irónico y humorístico que te plantea el autor. Una vez que entras en ritmo es pura risa. (me llevó unas buenas 100 páginas, pero a partir de ahí no pare de disfrutar cada línea) The third book, Yumi and the Nightmare Painter, is another as-told-by-Hoid story, albeit one with a far different tone than Tress of the Emerald Sea. This story is Sanderson’s personal favorite of the four books and is told in a more dramatic presentation, originally inspired by the Hikaru No Go manga. At the bottom of this newsletter I talk a little about my inspirations for this book. Either way, thank you all so much for the support!

I stumbled, putting one hand to the nearby wooden pillar. I put the other to my head. Jen. Hot damn…this had been her dream. This place, this was what I had left of her. She’d have been aghast by how many assumptions I’d made about this people. The transfer process can leave the mind muddied—but often, a few facts about one’s life can jog loose other details. Don’t stress the initial disorientation. It is a common side effect, and all you need to do is— Now that I knew what to look for, I spotted another loose piece of paper fluttering at the edge of the field, near some woods. Maybe it would have a map on it, telling me how to get out of this place—or at least list where I could find a first aid station. I’d obviously hit my head or something. Now enough of that silliness. Let’s get to the worldbuilding as it’s quite extensive. For one thing, the juxtaposition of a futuristic world to a medieval setting is really entertaining, but it also means familiarizing yourself with two different sets of worlds/time periods which took me a bit to get used to. But I guess that’s par for the course for this blend of genres – and for Sanderson. Maybe that’s just me. Therefore, I used my entire life’s experience—roughly half a day so far—to devise a plan. I found a nearby tree with a view of the gates, then hid to wait until it opened.This all seemed so bizarre. Was I maybe…part of some ridiculous social experiment? A reality television game?

The messengers didn’t reply. Together, they strode out the front gates, and the lord—seeming distinctly annoyed—followed with wide strides, shaking his head.

Chapter Two

I read the words over three times, then looked into the distance at those old-timey buildings again. The truth began to settle on me. I wasn’t a cosplayer. I was visiting some kind of theme park. Was that…more or less nerdy? Sefawynn cut my hands free, and I thought I saw her posture tense. She was preparing for a fight, just in case. I brought my hands out very slowly in front of me, then rubbed my wrists in a non-threatening way. Well, there you are! A sneak peak of Secret Project #2 for you to enjoy. As with the first one, I have some interesting notes about where it came from. Part of me wanted to stalk out and demand answers. Play the role of irate customer, make them break character. Ha!” the lord said. “Again, you think I’ve not heard any ballads? Besides, though I suspect you have the power of glamor when not inverted, you don’t have it now. You aren’t red-haired, nor do you have the features of a foreigner, like the man they claim to be hunting—so they wouldn’t want you.”
