I’ll be honest. I didn’t like this book right away, mainly because it employs an omniscient 3rd person narrative that does a lot of head-hopping. But once I got used to the style, I warmed up to it. However, the core reason for me liking Dragons of Autumn Twilight is because I love to play Dungeons and Dragons. And reading this book felt so much like playing a campaign, that there was no way I could dislike it. That being said, if you’re not a D&D fan, you may not appreciate the deliberate talk, explore, fight pattern of the story. Strong characters also save this book from getting a lower score. Three stars for Dragons of Autumn Twilight!

About Waking Up Dead
When Dallas resident Callie Taylor died young, she expected to go to Heaven, or maybe Hell. Instead, when she met her fate early thanks to a creep with a knife and a mommy complex, she went to Alabama...
I usually don’t like reading first person narratives. They are often hokey, confusing, and I like to get to know all of the heroes and villains by hearing their inner monologues. But somehow Brandon Sanderson manages to overcome all of that and present a great view of this story and its characters in spite of restricting himself to a single character’s viewpoint. I am becoming more and more convinced that Brandon holds one of the shards of Adonalsium, an unknown shard that gives him the power to write original and enthralling stories……man, I wish I had a monkey’s paw….

Seventeen-year-old Zelene doesn’t believe in magic or prophecies. When she’s told she is part of the prophecy foretelling five powerful girls bringing peace to the war-torn worlds, she scoffs. The idea of other dimensions layered on top of the world she lives in is almost as ludicrous as the idea that she might be able to save them. After she is attacked by magic-wielding assassins, she finds she can’t argue with reality.
As their enemies strike, the girls are taken back to their world and discover the ties binding them together. Rhaya has always had an uncanny knack for reading people, but can’t seem to unravel the mystery tying her to Isauria, the new friend she bonded with instantly...
