Yeah, well, hmmmm…..
How do you review The Well of Ascension? In my case, you simply don’t. I will leave just a few words to describe my feelings:
As with book one, this wasn’t a perfect read for me. There was a lot of political maneuvering and backstabbing. I hate that in real life and I hate it in books. So, I was fully prepared to give this 4/5 stars. But then…things…switched my rating back to 5-stars. Honestly, less than 5 would be an insult to the exceptional worldbuilding and character development. I’m not sure any other fantasy series I’ve read has reached this level.
And, yes, I’ve already pulled out book three. (Which I’ve been told is “epic” so my expectations are through the roof. Don’t let me down Sanderson.)
