    "When I heard this book had a blend of politics, fantasy and martial arts and was written by Brandon Sanderson I rushed to pick it up. I was not disappointed! This book has every element you could ask for in a fantasy novel. So often these books have a decent world setting but the characters are not deep enough to really care about. This is the kind of book that you’ll love and it will make you think at the same time."
