Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

Sanderson takes some time establishing his world and characters, and he has a lot going on. But once he gets going, it's quite a ride.

Ceony Twill arrives at the cottage of Magician Emery Thane with a broken heart. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Tagis Praff School for the Magically Inclined, Ceony is assigned an apprenticeship in paper magic despite her dreams of bespelling metal. And once she's bonded to paper, that will be her only magic... forever. Yet the spells Ceony learns under the strange yet kind Thane turn out to be more marvelous than she could have ever imagined.

Unfortunately, this is one of those books I think that I would have preferred reading on my own, rather than listening to. I just felt like the way that the narrator voiced the main character was so infuriating that I couldn't focus on the actual story.

I absolutely loved this follow up to Scythe. My only complaint is that I got too invested in the story, and I stressed myself out and had to take a break!

Lacklustre, trite, and just a little bit condescending. Definitely not the catch all it was set up to be.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: Humanity has conquered all those things and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life - and they are commanded to do so in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe - a role that neither wants. These teens must master the "art" of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him - and face the consequences.

I had heard so much hype about this book and how AMAZING it was, and I was extremely disappointed. Jude was not the morally grey, ambitious, clever Slytherin protagonist I was promised - she was slow on the uptake and annoying. The plot took forever to get going, and the world building was lacklustre.

Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on the container ship Mao. With the jump station destroyed and their resources scarce, the only option is to return to Kerenza - but who knows what they'll find seven months after the invasion? Meanwhile Kady's cousin, Asha, survived the initial BeiTech assault and has joined Kerenza's ragtag underground resistance.

Honest to goodness, I cannot stop recommending this series to people. Whether it's the audiobook or the physical copy, this whole series is FANTASTIC (although the full-cast audiobook makes for an incredibly immersive experience).

The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout best seller Illuminae continues onboard the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault. Hanna is the station captain's pampered daughter, Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.

While I loved the first one, this felt forced and slow. The characters were not engaging, and neither was the plot. I was quite disappointed with the sequel, because the first was such a wonderful, engaging story.
