Kenton has defied his father, the highest ranking Sand Master, his whole life in pursuit of becoming a manipulator of the sands. The problem is that he can barely perform the smallest function a Sand Master is expected to grasp. Political intrigue, magic, and murder cap this Brandon Sanderson story off to delve deeper into his Cosmere.
-I really enjoy Brandon Sanderson's works. This graphic novel is reminiscent of a blend of Warbreaker and Mistborn. The magic system is consistent and Sanderson-esque.
-The characters were great. Kenton's struggles bring you into a place where water is easily gained, if you know where to get it, and money and secrets are equal currency in a sandy world where there is no night.
-Although I wasn't a big fan of the art style the story still sucked me in. I think I was a little disappointed in the color choices. After looking through the back of the book there are many gorgeous renderings, it's a shame more of a subtle style wasn't taken in the design.
-Overall, I would recommend this for fans of Sanderson that enjoy comics or graphic novels. It may be a bit of an adjustment for people who have never read a graphic novel before.
