An excellent continuation of the series. This book picks up right after the ending of the previous one and shows more depth of the world Sanderson built for the book.
There aren’t as many plot twists in this book than in the first, but this time they are more spread out throughout the plot (as opposed to all at the end of the book, like in book 1). the pacing is better now as well. Though I suspect this is because the backstory and basics of magic have been established, and Sanderson can tell the story unhindered.
Though it is long, it is very immersive. It’s definitely a page-turner, and I was struggling to stop reading and reach the end of it.
Sanderson reveals even more intrigue into this book. Even at the end, it made me wonder how the clues together, and what will happen in the next book. If Sanderson can keep this up for the 10 proposed 10 books in this series, I will be very impressed.
