Sanderson, Brandon -- The Well of Ascension

Sanderson cements his reputation as the twistiest fantasy writer around today. You can accuse him of being over-intellectual, and he's certainly in love with his own rule-systems, but as a creator of puzzle-box plots one must accord him the grand title of "you bastard." I saw two of the twists coming in this book, and I am very smug about it. On the flip side, the emotional and motivational depths of his characters are -- well, they're all over-intellectual. Kind of like me. Anyway, I enjoyed it.
