Review: CHILDREN OF THE NAMELESS by Brandon Sanderson

Publisher Wizards of the Coast
Length 124  pages
Format ebook
Published 2018
Series Magic the Gathering
My Copy available online as a free ebook

My Review
Gothic horror infused fantasy, accessible to both readers familiar with the characters and planes (Avacyn and Innistrad feature respectively) of Magic the Gathering and those new to the table-top gaming lore.

Introducing new characters (those not previously featured in Magic the Gather lore in card/other formats), Tacenda and Davriel gives author Brandon Sanderson an established but new playground to explore and expand upon and he does it in a captivating and entertaining way.

Using the shorter length prose of a novella ensures each chapter progresses the story, be it character development, backstory, or pure action (of which there is plenty).

My rating: 5/5 stars. This was the first time I'd read anything by Brandon Sanderson and it certainty won't be the last.
