Teaser Tuesday - Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


This week my Tease is not from my current read.  Instead I've chosen a Tease from a novel I read a few years ago, just to shake things up a bit.  Elantris is the debut novel from Brandon Sanderson, published in 2005, back before he was chosen to complete The Wheel of Time series for Robert Jordan.  It's a rather brilliant fantasy novel, entirely unique, and very entertaining.

The Tease:
 "The Shaod, it was called. The Transformation...
When it came, the fortunate person's life ended and began anew; he would discard his old, mundane existence and move to Elantris.
Elantris, where he could live in bliss, rule in wisdom, and be worshiped for eternity.
Eternity ended ten years ago."
 -Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson

  5. This was the first book I read by Brandon Sanderson; I haven't re-read it since but I remember greatly enjoying the novel. He's quite the author, his imagination is just so unique.
