Listened to branndon one on audio, vainly hoping beyond hope that I might finally read a Brandon Sanderson book I don’t like so I can feel better about myself as an author.

Then students start disappearing—kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. She could not see his face, backlit as he was, but there was something horribly sinister about that slightly tipped head and those shadowed features. Having said that though, I still loved this book.

My favourite characters are Joel and Melody. The thing is that because he is going to be dealing with real-life cultures Brandon needed to do a lot of research.

Well, Bastille 1, but there’s only one Bastille. It’s not rithmatidt it isn’t as good as any other magic system Sanderson has created, it’s more that it’s actually overused for once.

To come up with a whole system of Rithmatics was brilliant. May 22, Helen 2. Se lo recomiendo a todo el mundo. The story, setting, and magic system also reminded me a bit of The Name of The Wind — especially the part where Kvothe attends magic school and studies a rigidly structured magic with specific rules.

The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson book review

Write a reader review Thank you for taking the time to write a review on this book, it really makes a difference and helps readers to find their perfect book.

Like with Skyward, it’s going to be a trilogy and I’m going to write two of them this year–maybe all three if I can–and then it’s done and turned in. I felt it adds do much more to visualize the stuff they are doing with the chalk. But was it really fun to read and enjoyable?

I love the characters in any given book, but it’s the magic that makes me want to live in the world forever. The magic of The Rithmatist is as creative as ever.

Besides the cool magic system, my favorite thing about this novel was Joel. Each of the characters introduced in this novel had their purpose and role in the story. Register a new account. Speaking of the genre, something about this book felt very Middle Grade. Jul 10, Kelley marked it as to-read. So besides the fact that I started to cringe every time the word “Rithmatist” was used, the plot is pretty standard and it has the standard YA characters.

It’s so well-thought out, it boggles the mind to see all that has gone into this and no wonder it gets mentioned over and over, it takes that long just to understand the different defenses that are used. The story mainly takes place at Armedius Academy, one of 8 schools that trains and teaches Rithmatists, alongside non-Rithmatists with rich or important families. The characters are both relatable, fantastical, and brilliant, and the magic system is unparalleled — again.

I still have no idea what a knight-senator is exactly.
