I'm late to the party, but just finished Elantris.
Slow, slow, slow book. If it weren't for Stormlight, I wouldn't have trusted him to the end. But thank God I did. Fantastic ending.
I'm just confused. I don't understand how drawing a line in the dirt fixed things. I mean, what if I rubbed it out with my foot. Would the whole system be screwed again?
And Shudan, or however you spell his name, I think he was using Stormlight. It is a cosmere novel after all.
