As promised in a few previous episodes, today we’re reviewing The Emperor’s Soul by Brandon Sanderson. Sanderson is an author we’ve talked about multiple times on the podcast, so it was great to be able to review one of his shorter works. We talk about all the basics of plot, characterisation and world-building here, but we also touch on where The Emperor’s Soul fits into Sanderson’s larger body of work.
If you want to read the story before listening to our review, it’s readily available in ebook. Many of Brandon Sanderson’s works are truly gargantuan, but this one is actually a novella and is much more bitesize! It’s also a great introduction to his writing if you’ve not come across him before – just one of many aspects we discuss in this episode.
