White Sand (White Sand #1) by Brandon Sanderson, Rik Hoskin, Julius M. Gopez
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The story starts with Kenton – a young, stubborn man who needs to prove his father and himself that he deserves a proper rank among Sand Masters. With his weak sand-mastery and a rather unusual fighting skills, he’s throwing himself to a trial, that only strongly-gifted are supposed to survive.
Even though it’s supposed to be the whole volume, it felt more like an introduction to the world, the characters, the situation. The first meeting of certain people that will make a mark further in the story, everyone with their own goals and distinct personalities. There’s still plenty going on – the trials Kenton goes through, the attack on his homeland, seeing the city, and more of the barbarians. Full of action with some breaks that slowly reveal the plot and character’s reasoning and goals. Overall – nicely done, but I want more :D.
