STEELHEART by Brandon Sanderson

WOW. Wwoweee. There is a reason Brandon Sanderson (whom I’ve met. tee hee!) is the MASTER OF HIS UNIVERSE. SteelHeart BLEW. ME. AWAY.

He buildsĀ a world. BringsĀ in some characters. Makes you FEEL for the characters.

and then BAM.

non-stop action.

There’s so much to say I don’t know where to begin.

Not much in the way of multicultural diversity, though there is a African French Canadian character and surprisingly, a character of Southeast Asian/Indian descent.

My daughter and I loved that book and can’t wait to read the next one. We would both love to meet Sanderson someday. His books fill my shelves, my daughter’s and my son’s. He needs a clone so he can write faster in all the series he has going.

Haven’t started this series yet. Am waiting for a break in the book business. Of course, I realize that’s akin to waiting for Godot, but I’m an optimist.

Violence is the norm these days, and it’s in our homes via Social Media more than ever in our history. Killings, abductions, and terrorist attacks are right there on the desktop within minutes of them happening. I believe that’s fueling the violence in so many of our books.
