Elantris

Brandon Sanderson ë 5 characters Summary ¶ Elantris ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Elantris was the capital of Arelon gigantic beautiful literally radiant filled with benevolent beings who used their powerful magical abilities for the benefit of all Yet each of these demigods was once an ordinary person until touched by the mysterious transforming power of the Shaod Ten years ago without warning the magic failed Elantrians became wizened leper like powerless creatures and Elantris itself dark filthy and crumblingArelon's new capital Kae crouches in the shadow of Elantris Princess Sarene of Teod arrives for a marriage. 355 StarsExactly 3 months ago I finished binge reading the two available books in the Stormlight Archive series Brandon Sanderson s magnum opus and my favorite series of all time By that time I already caught up to all Sanderson s Cosmere works excluding novellas except his debut work Elantris Today I finished it and in my opinion it s a great debut novel but at the same time it s also Sanderson s weakest Cosmere s book Once you read all his other books it s really clear that this is his debut work whether from his writing or the way he weaved the world building and magic systemsAlthough this debut is inferior in comparison to his other Cosmere books this doesn t mean that it s not great Elantris has got to be one of the most uniue and original fantasy books I ever read The plot starts with the explanation of the city Elantris the beautiful city of the gods full with magical abilities and dazzling architecture which loses all its power and beauty 10 years ago Then one of the three main characters Raoden inflicted with the same curse that ravaged Elantris were exiled to the city The city of Elantris is pretty much a twist to the zombie apocalypse genre and it contained really strong and eerie atmosphere90% of the plot in the book revolves heavily around politics and religious exploration it s really slow paced and there aren t any Good vs Evil theme going on here It s really scarce on actions or less 5% of the book it s only there during the climax and yet conflicted with these circumstances Elantris still managed to be remain captivating and engrossing because of how intricate and intriguing the politics and religious aspects areThe story is told seuentially from 3 main POV Raoden Sarene Hrathen in that order from the beginning until the end and all the main characters possessed different narratives to each other Raoden the prince oozing with positive attitude who in my opinion has the personality mixture of Kelsier from Mistborn and Hadrian from Riyria Sarene the strong and witty female MC and Hrathen the fanatic high priest all three characters never sounded the same in their narratives and they added a better experience to the plotRaoden casting AonDorTwo problems I have with the book are in its world building and magic systems The writing is good and immersive enough but clearly if you ve read all other Sanderson s Cosmere works you ll see just how inferior his writing is compared to them This means Sanderson always improves with each books he wrote but for this standalone the scope of the world building seems constricted taking place in two big cities of the world of Sel with the exception of Elantris there isn t enough world building done to the settings which made them seemed really small This holds true especially to the city of Kae the details were given probably only to two or three mansions and the dock of the cityAlso the magic systems which are usually one of the strongest factors of Sanderson s books is uite underwhelming The magic of AonDor ClayShan and Dakhor all made their appearance only in the last 60 pages of the book AonDor have several intricate explanations on how it works but ClayShan and Dakhor were just there within the climax section of the book with very brief to zero explanation to what they actually are and how they operates It felt like Sanderson tried to cram too much information into this standalone even though there aren t enough pages left to do justice towards it Remember the past need not become our future as well This uote summed up exactly what I think of Elantris s uality in comparison to all other Sanderson s future works While still great as a debut it s also his weakest book in his Cosmere universe I really enjoyed reading it it s different from his other book lower in uality but it s one of the most original fantasy works I ever read If you haven t read any Sanderson s adult fantasy books Elantris or Mistborn is a great place to start You can t go wrong with anyone of them Elantris is pretty much just an appetizer to what s in store for all his other phenomenal books Recommended for any high fantasy fans who s into intricate politics and religious exploration story You can also find this and the rest of my Adult EpicHigh Fantasy Sci Fi reviews at Booknest

Brandon Sanderson ë 5 characters Summary ¶ Elantris ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free T Prince Raoden Stricken by the same curse that ruined Elantris Raoden was secretly exiled by his father to the dark city His struggle to help the wretches trapped there begins a series of events that will bring hope to Arelon and perhaps reveal the secret of Elantris itselfA rare epic fantasy that doesn't recycle the classics and that is a complete and satisfying story in one volume Elantris is fleet and fun full of surprises and characters to care about It's also the wonderful debut of a welcome new star in the constellation of fanta. Re discovering Brandon Sanderson was one of my best decisions this yearElantris is undoubtedly a wonderful debut paving the path for marvelous fantasy adventures And even though it s probably Sanderson s weakest work you can t help but feel awed before his ingenuity and the masterful way he navigates politics and intrigue In case it is not clear I plead fangirl Dream on Elantris Remember what you used to be and try to hide your sins beneath the blanket of darkness Tomorrow the sun will rise and all will be revealed once Elantris used to be the city of Gods of glorious beings of extraordinary powers Until the Reod the Punishment happened and Elantris fell What was once beautiful and pure now is tainted and filthy Elantris is the land of eternal misery and perdition and its inhabitants monstrocities that are exiled from the civilized societies Right after the fall of Elantris king Iadon took the reigns of the kingdom of Arelon establishing a government system based on money People that were once prosperous now have barely enough to eat As Arelon s collapsing reeking of poverty and corruption the Fjordell Empire gathers its forces and prepares to strike in order to convert the heretic Arelon to the true faith Shu Dereth And this is where the fates of three individuals collide Raoden the beloved prince of Arelon suddenly disappears presumed dead Nobody knows that the Shaod took him and turned him into an Elantrian Sarene the Teoish princess that was supposed to marry Raoden arrives to Arelon only to find out that she is a widow before she had the chance to meet her husband Now she must manipulate outsmart her enemies and make alliances if she wants Arelon to survive the instability that has brought it to its knees Hrathen a high priest of Shu Dereth is sent to Arelon with one mission convert the infidels in the span of three months or else they will be drowned in blood Raoden Sarene Hrathen they will cancel each other s plans they will make kingdoms tremble but in the end everything depends on the cursed city and the secrets hiding in her stained buildings whose light has been extinguished Truth can never be defeated Sarene Even if people do forget about it occassionally There is something about Elantris something that seizes your attention from the first page and captivates you in its snare It s the combination of a cursed mystical city religious zealotry mind games and court intrigue that sucks you in the slime covered streets of Elantris in garish balls and the palace of a paranoid king who has brought his country to the brink of conuest and massacre As per usual Brandon Sanderson never fails to deliver intricate religious systems that play an integral part in the plot and uick witted and occasionally sharp tongued characters the dialogues are infused with mirth friendly banters and battles of wit and they are always enjoyable That being said it is obvious that Elantris is Sanderson s first published work and not his best What I always admire is his fascinating and well structured magic systems but in this one the AonDor could use some improvement The concept of the Dor and the power behind Aons were a tad muddy hence confusing it felt like the explanations and the principles related to them were lacking thus I found myself struggling to understand the magic of Elantris and that s one of the reasons I was invested in the politics and the back stabbing court of Kae The problem with being clever Serene thought with a sigh is that everyone assumes you re always planning something The characters were pure gold The plot of Elantris did not revolve around the battle between Good and Evil and that s why I neved knew who to root for considering that in the end they all shared the same goal avoid a bloodbath The means they used though and their motivations were different and the actions of one negated the efforts of the other in an elaborate dance of schemes and plots Watching Sarene the lanky princess of Teod outmaneuvering seasoned nobles and elouent preachers was definitely one of the book s hightlights for me While Sarene could be overwhelming at times her spirit and her innate distrust made her an excellent political opponent and I loved her dynamics with the group of nobles and merchants who wanted to change the system for a better future The entire set of side characters that accompanied her from Ashe the Seon to hilarious Luke heartbreaker Shuden and stern Roial they were all perfect in their own way My favorite character though was Raoden His kindness his optimism his dialogues with Galladon were simply precious and his need to help his people to uncover the secrets of Elantris and restore Arelon to its former glory made me want toprotect him at all costs Hrathen on the other hand was complex At first I regarded him as the enemy but as he faced obstacles in his journey and began to uestion his faith his purpose and everything that made him the person he was I began to warm towards him and accept that not everything is either black or white and for me this is Sanderson s greatest achievement with ElantrisElantris is a wonderful book but if you wish to explore the magnitude of Sanderson s sheer talent you should probably start with Warbreaker or better yet The Final Empire Review also posted on BookNest
