Defeated, crushed, and driven almost to extinction, the remnants of the human race is trapped on a planet that is constantly attacked by mysterious alien starfighters. Spensa, a teenage girl living among them, longs to be a pilot. When she discovers the wreckage of an ancient ship, she realizes this dream might be possible - assuming she can repair the ship, navigate flight school, and (perhaps most importantly) persuade the strange machine to help her. Because this ship, uniquely, appears to have a soul.

Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left - now he's got less than one. With 50,000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin's got problems on every side. As he loses control of his magic, all magic is running wild, threatening to destroy the Seven Satrapies. The old gods are being reborn. Their army of color wights is unstoppable, and the only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

In the wake of a devastating attack, an amnesty has been declared for all Augurs - finally allowing them to emerge from hiding and openly oppose the dark forces massing against the land of Andarra. As the Augur Davian and his new allies hurry north toward the ever-weakening Boundary, however, fresh horrors along their path suggest that their reprieve may have come far too late. His ally in the Capital, the new Northwarden, contends with assassins and politicians and uncovers a dangerous political secret.

I'm generally a huge brandon sanderson fan for comparative reference. this story also has a bitty of "codex of alera" feel to it in terms of very full story with lots of action, intrigue, and twists. not the best for comic relief or really rich characters, but still good in those aspects, exiting plot is definitely the strong point, and what a cliffhanger!!!

Elantris was built on magic, and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade, and Elantris began to rot. Now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

i love all Brandon sanderson books. can't wait for this story to continue. The pronunciation of a lot of the names in the audiobook is off as there's a specific phonetic system for the world, otherwise great narration.

I love this book and completely recommend it; I've read it heaps of times, which is why I could tell some parts were missing in this audiobook version. For example: all references to the former office assistant whose role Emma fears she is assuming, and the conversation between Sven and Emma where Sven tries to convince her to change her mind about Jack. It has been a few years since I last read it, so there are probablt a few more missing items that I didn't notice.
