When you open the pages of The Rithmatist, you enter the brilliant, creative, and imaginative world of Brandon Sanderson. This was my very first Brandon Sanderson book but it will not be my last. This was a very well thought out book. The details were astonishing. The drawings were amazing. The story was fantastic. I will not go into a description of the book because I don’t want to give away spoilers. This is not the type of book that I would normally pick up, I am so happy that I won this. If someone told me that I would be this impressed with a book about chalk and drawings, I would not have believed it. Since I mentioned the drawings, it is important to note not to overlook them or pass by them as you read as they are examples of defenses used in the book. I highly recommend this book!
