I don't think I've given Brandon Sanderson more than three stars for any of his books, and this is no exception. I was sorely disappointed with my latest Sanderson endeavor, Elantris, and picked this book up on a whim. I'm glad I read Emperor's Soul. It did have similar issues that bothered me about his other books, but the ending finale left me touched.
More detailed review to come (huh? when? everrrr???)
