There are two things [a:Brandon Sanderson|38550|Brandon Sanderson|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1201547425p2/38550.jpg] does exceedingly well: 1) create unique, interesting systems of magic and 2) write deep, engaging, full-faceted, realistic female characters. [b:The Rithmatist|10137823|The Rithmatist (Rithmatist #1)|Brandon Sanderson|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348506712s/10137823.jpg|15035866] does not disappoint on either of these counts.

In addition to standard Sanderson fare, this book introduces us to an alternate America with various spring-loaded, steampunk-esque modes of transportation, lights, mowers, etc.

The story is solid and while technically a Young Adult novel, it didn't feel like standard YA fare. About half-way through I actually had to look it up to find out it was classified under YA. As is typical of Sanderson, the relationships and interactions between characters feel very realistic and natural. There are no cookie-cutter tropes here.

If you like Brandon Sanderson's other series, I'm confident you'll enjoy this book.

I really liked the twists and turns of this novel. I also really liked that the POV character was a non-magic user in a magic world. That's an outlook you don't get very often. I mean, even Mat and Perrin of the Wheel of Time have their own things that fit the world. I love how the characters grow closer in a realistic way, and I really hope that Sanderson does follow up, though "To Be Continued" does give that promise.
