It isn’t often a book grabs me so fully that I have to read it right to the end without pause. Brandon Sanderson’s Elantris is one of those though. It is curious really, as I’ve always been a bit hesitant to pick it up. I could never put my finger on why, but I would read the back, it would pique my interest but I would always put it back. However, I can say after finally reading it in a twelve-hour marathon, that it is one of the best novels I have read in a very long time.
