Elantris was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. Now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots?
Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

For a first time fantacy book it's cool. It pulls you into a world that does'nt hit you over the head with voilence and bloodlust.Politics and pychology, discovering personalities of people one would like to know. A really nice book to listen to.I enjoyed to journey, the voice fit the story.A great driving book.
Fantastic i have listened to it twice because i enjoyed it so much. brilliant story line. I have listen to all the books he as written and would recomend them to anyone. But this one is my favourite. 10 out of 10
I had never heard of Brandon Sanderson until I downloaded this and it was not what I expected from looking at the front cover but wow what a book. The story moves along nicely and the narrative is exellently done. I found myself looking forward to getting some free time just to get back to the book. One of the best stories I have had the pleasure of reading (listening to).
I picked up this book, because I have enjoyed the other works of Brandon Sanderson, and boy was I glad I did. It is an interesting twist to a familiar story, set in a fascinating world that I wouldn’t mind hearing about again. I enjoyed every minute of listening to the voice of Jack Garrett, who did an excellent job narrating the story into life. The reason why I only rated this book with four out of five, is probably due to the fact that I read it after his other novels and I enjoyed them a bit more. That said, this is an excellent book and definitely worth your time and money, so please have at it, enjoy!
