Now I really want more! At the same time, it felt not quite long enough to fill in enough backstory details, to flesh out the world a bit more, to explore the different directions Siris can go. Sanderson did very well with character development for such a small book, especially considering that he had his setting and much of his plot dictated to him.
There were parts that felt sanddrson But there were things in the book that struck me as clever, and I would like to attribute them to Sanderson — so I will.
