    I really enjoyed this Didn t quite sweep me away as much as Mistborn did, but it was still a solid and satisfying read It was rather slow in the beginning and had a good deal of build up as the world and three main characters were introduced, but once all three story lines were thoroughly intertwined things started to get really really good The mystery about what happene...
