Waiting on Wednesday - The Rithmatist

3 Apr 2013
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and it allows readers to share the books that they are most looking forwards to reading.

This week the book i have chosen to feature is The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson.

The Rithmatist

Title: The Rithmatist

Author: Brandon Sanderson

Series: The first in a new series

Expected Publication: May 14th (US), May 16th (UK)

Publisher: Orion Childrens books (UK), Tor Teen (US)

Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Amazon UK


Someone is killing the powerful Rithmatist magicians and Joel may be the only one who can stop the killer...
Joel is fascinated by the magical art of Rithmatics, but unfortunately only a chosen few have the necessary gift and Joel is not one of them. Undaunted, Joel persuades Professor Fitch to teach him Rithmatic theory - and soon finds that his knowledge is put to the test when someone starts murdering the top Rithmatic students at his school.

But can Joel work out the identity of the killer and stop them before they realize just what a threat Joel actually is?

My Thoughts

Brandon Sanderson is an incredible fantasy author. He creates worlds that are so unique you could never possibly imagine them yourself and his storytelling is so woven and detailed that every page is a joy to read. This will be the first book i read of his that is aimed at a yound adult audience. Here's hoping this book is as amazing as all his others.

What books are you looking forwards to this week? Feel free to link to your own WoW posts in the comments :)
