    3.5I got problems once again with my e-arc pdf copy , the images were not clear and a number of missing letters do a very frustrasting reading of an otherwise engaging story, more complex this time. Kenton, now as Lord Mastrell of the remaining sand masters require the votes of the Lords to keep The Diem . But everywhere he turns for help or alliances found old grudges against the sand masters, religious prejudice and asassins attacks.Maybe is ti...

    This review can also be found here: https://thereadingnargle.wordpress.co...I honestly went into this book not expecting much from it − I was super excited, of course, but Vol. 1 didn’t entertain me that much, so I didn’t expect this one would either. I was and wasn’t right at the same time.I believe that Brandon Sanderson’s works in graphic format do not convey the same emotions as they do in written format. Having just speeches and vi...

    This instalment was even better than the first one. While that one served as an introduction to the characters and the world, things are happening in this one. Kenton is maturing in leaps and strides. He is working hard to do what he feels is right, and he has quite a lot of work ahead of himself with all the obstacles in his way.Khriss and the Darksiders are a great addition. I really enjoy seeing their prejudices and assumptions about the Daysi...

    After the setup of the first book, we begin to see more action in this sequel. We see more of the typical Brandon Sanderson plot structure take shape, and go beyond just world-building and introducing charatcers.The characters are starting to take shape, and I found myself liking Kenton much more than in the first book.It looks to be gearing up for an excellent story in future issues. The downside the book is that the comic release format makes i...

    This was interesting but a bit dull to be honest, as I said in my review for Part 1 I think this would be better as a written story instead of split in to parts and made into a graphic novel. I’m still not really a fan of the art either, that is until the last chapter where I assume a different artist took over as the quality dramatically improves. Overall I think this was lacking excitement, there's intrigue here but the story could have been ...

    I received a copy of White Sand Vol. 2 in exchange for a fair and honest review. I love the worlds that Brandon Sanderson creates, so obviously any graphic novel series he works on I’m going to be all over it. The story fits into the world of Cosmere, and the adaptation into the visual world is striking. I love the particular art style chosen for the series – it fits perfectly with the world and story being told (it even looks gritty and dese...

    I got to read this thanks to netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.It’s been awhile since book 1 so I had to give myself a crash course on where I left off at but felt I was able to jump back in again fairly easy.Book 2 steps a bit away from all the world building and setting that book 1 did for us and starts focusing more on the people. Not so much action packed (although Kenton does have assassins out for his head, so t...

    The story is really starting to take off in this volume of White Sand. I also felt like the characters-- their personalities and their motivations-- became a lot more clear and enjoyable in this volume. I also felt like the sociopolitical situation made a lot more sense this time around.My only problem is that the art could be a little more clear. I like the style, but I felt like (at list in the digital ARC I read) that it was a little less than...

    I could cut and paste my review for the first book - this looks nothing special, and is far too wordy, but does offer some kind of rich fantasy world for those on a quest for such. But don't come here if you didn't read the first book first, and recently - the publishers are doing everyone a big dis-service by putting them out almost two years apart, which itself makes the jarring change in art style at the end here even more questionable.

    More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/ Where the first volume focused on world building and setting the stage for the current situation, this second volumes takes a more leisurely approach, focusing on the politics and the interpersonal connections. There is still plenty of action, though, since Kenton faces daily assassination attempts, frustrations and triumphs while wooing politicians, and a growing relation...

    White Sand Vol. 2 is period pirate mixed with 80’s fashion meets Dune.Author Brandon Sanderson makes magic in the desert. We’re not talking jinns and genies here. The Sand Masters are something totally different and maybe, just maybe, more real (if you need science to explain your magic). Better known for his novels, White Sand Vol. 2 is the next chapter in one of his first worlds. The story is tight, though it jumps around and may be tough t...
