Mini Reviews #2 - Dec. 15

Mini Reviews

Read a couple of short stories this week...

The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson - 5 Stars
Amazon  Goodreads  Shelfari

I don't know how Sanderson does it, but he has managed to incorporate a whole new concept in such a short book and still make it complete. The whole idea of the stamps and Forgery was so in depth and well explained, it never felt like an info-dump nor was I ever lost during the book. In short, I have fallen in love with Sanderson's writing :)

Dangerous Voices by Rae Carson - 3 Stars
Amazon  Goodreads  Shelfari

It was an interesting concept, would have liked to see it more developed. Why were they imprisoned? What kind of world did they live in. What exactly does a music mage do? What exactly do the muses do? Soo many questions. The most important one being, why didn't they all unite like that since the start?
A short but captivating story still.
