I love Sandersons books, pretty much every one. I wasn't sure if getting into a Young Adult one like this was a good idea, but it didn't disappoint!
Like all of Sandersons works, this had a completely new and well thought out world and magic system, interesting characters and epic twists that get you stuck!
It's not the best Sanderson book after works like the way of kings and mistborn, but it's definitely worth a listen!

This book is a little odd story wise. Chalk drawing fighting I'm not sure what to make of it. Well written and a good story but a bit of a stretch concept wise.
Not as good as other Brandon books, but that may be that this is a y a book.
I had trouble imagining chalk drawings being a threat to anyone's life, and it sort of played out as a not so good, full metal alchemist, crossed with a Pokemon competition. And a war against chalk monsters. I guess they must live somewhere without rain.
Anyway as the story goes on it gets to a "if it wasnt for you meddling kids" moment but then ends before you realize it.
I suppose it's my fault listing to a y.a book but you have to try these things.
I look forward to Brandon returning to his adult books. And would still recommend and younger listeners to give it a try.
All his other books I gave a 5 but this is a 3 for me

Still not 100% convinced that chalk drawings are serious foe........but hey, who cares....it was still good fun, and worth spending an audible credit on. If you enjoy Sanderson's story-telling, and in need of some fun, light relief, then you won't be disappointed.
One thing Sanderson is never: predictable. Yes, it's not quite as strong as Stormlight, or the last WoT books, but still worthy of a listen. It has some humour, and, typically, a good solid twist near the end that leaves you wanting more. I'll be watching out for the sequel....
Thank you Mr Sanderson for keeping my commute tolerable.
