Sanderson, Brandon -- The Well of Ascension
Sanderson cements his reputation as the twistiest fantasy writer
around today. You can accuse him of being over-intellectual, and he's
certainly in love with his own rule-systems, but as a creator of
puzzle-box plots one must accord him the grand title of "you
bastard." I saw two of the twists coming in this book, and I am
very smug about it. On the flip side, the emotional and motivational
depths of his characters are -- well, they're all over-intellectual.
Kind of like me. Anyway, I enjoyed it.
