That art style. That cover. Good volume.

With Brandon Sanderson starting to become a household name synonymous with the fantasy genre I'm almost embarrassed to admit that White Sand, Volume 1 was my first introduction to his work. Oddly enough I own Elantris, Mistborn, and The Way of Kings, but have been too intimidated to commit myself to reading them. White Sand was a great introduction into what Sanderson is truly capable of as a writer and left me craving more. White Sand balances it's dialogue, narration, and visual story-telling beautifully, a huge credit goes to Rik Hoskin (co-writer on Dynamite’s Mercy Thompson graphic novels) who adapted Sanderson’s novel for the graphic novel format. Sanderson's story, characters, and ideas translate beautifully on the page. Although the artwork itself is not the best in the industry it does provide a strong visual narrative to compliment Sanderson's writing. I'm very excited to continue the story of White Sand in volume two and will finally explore Sanderson's more complex prose. White Sand feels like a great starting point for people interested in Sanderson's other work. Highly recommended.

Originally published on Lovey Dovey Books White Sand is the brilliant first volume in Brandon Sanderson’s new graphic novel series. Page after page is filled with a colorful adventure just waiting to grab you by the hand and pull you in further. This is definitely the way to get familiarized with Sanderson. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this story, but I must say that having no expectations made discovering this world like taking in a breath of fresh air. The story begins with Daysider Kenton, a sand acolent striving to prove that, though little of power he may be, he can still take hold of the high rank Mastrell. Though Kenton starts on a path he believes will gain his father’s respect, the path twists when the Diem is attacked and he assumes the most powerful rank in his profession. How such a complex world has been exquisitely depicted in this format is beyond me, but I’m no less happy for it. The universe is diverse, grand, and most of all unique. The characters are witty and real and introduced in a way that doesn’t feel like a bombardment. The building of Kenton’s world unfurls at an easy pace. Every scene emphasizes the connections throughout the plot and how the lines are being drawn between one side and another. The execution of this tale is well done and precisely what a true fan of fantasy and adventure would be looking for. There's just enough intrigue to draw readers in, determined to get to the bottom of whatever plot is afoot. White Sand sets the stage for the rest of the series, but by the end you’ll be eagerly anticipating the next volume. This high impact beginning will dazzle and impress you while making a home in your memory. No, White Sand will not quickly be forgotten! *eARC received in exchange for honest review*
