I'm not sure of the time or much of what I've done since apart from read the book, it's 11pm now. There's some wrappers and a couple empty bottles of Frijj milkshake but I'm pretty hungry. If there was more book left though I don't think I'd notice it.
Another new magic system, another new world, another Sanderson win.
Joel is a charity student at the Armedius Academy, which also trains Rithmatists. He doesn't have the ability himself, but he's fascinated with their spells. When one of them goes missing, he gets drawn into the investigation and what's drawn in this world could kill you.
His younger fiction like that, and especially the Reckoners series, are like that. They're just well paced and really fun books. If you haven't given Reckoners a go, put it on your list. It's about a world of Supervillains and no Superheroes to fight them, so the normal people have to find ways to stop them. It's 3 books and a short novella, but it's finished and all out.
