Loved This Book

This book was excellent. Anyone who's read a Brandon Sanderson novel knows how amazing his world-building skills are. The characters were well developed, the storyline wasn't too fast or too slow, and he made everything seem believable. There was some violence (ships blowing up, people dying, etc.) but it's not extremely graphic. There were a few instances of flirting (as CSM mentions) but no kissing or other things. There's a little bit more swearing than CSM mentions. There's h--l, d---n, ba----d, and a--. They're not very frequent, though. But overall, this book is absolutely fantastic, and teen readers (14/15+) will probably get more out of the novel compared to the CSM suggested 12+. The only downside is that the second book doesn't come out until November.
