Brandon Sanderson never disappointed me!
Yet again he managed to create a beautiful book,with an (again) unique magic system,with very likable and believable characters you can easily connect. The story sucks you inn from the very start.It is about a boy that is different then others,not quite accepted,struggling to tag along because of his lack of magic but anyway a student at a famous magic academy.
I recommend it for all the Harry Potter lovers out there,for all the teens that yearned for something new and exciting and last but not least,for us adults who still have the kid inside:)
Here is a short synopsis from Goodreads:
As the son of a lowly chalk maker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing — kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery — one that will change Rithmatics — and their world — forever.
