More of Sanderson, and I must say that I’m still really impressed with his writing. This story was nice, although not as complex as the others. This was also much shorter than the others contributing a good bit to it. There are points in the story that show a less developed idea of motivation than in the later books, and there is only one bad character that is redeeming. The evil characters are pure evil, which is something he gets over in his later books, giving them the concept of doing something evil for some ‘greater good.’ I like the ‘greater good’ idea since it is morally ambiguous. In this book there was a clear evil and clear good, with a character converting from one side to the other being his transformation. I like the dead city concept, as it was very refreshing.
