ReDawn ★★★ 1/2
As you can see from my rating, Redawn is my least favorite in the series so far but I still enjoyed it to a certain extent. I have very similar feelings about this one as I had with the first novella. They are both very important to the main series and can not be skipped. I think readers who don’t read novellas will miss a lot of things if they jumped straight into Cytonic.
My problem with the book is that it was too technical, Sanderson is a master at world-building but I think the focus of the story veered into the world-building in this one and less on the characters.
Speaking of the characters, I am most intrigued by Spensa as the main POV, FM was also good but Alanik was meh. I kept forgetting that the story followed her and the romance in this one was too obvious just like in Sunreach.
I think the constant jumping between characters and introducing new ones may not be a wise choice and I heard Cytonic introduces a whole new set of characters which I am hesitant about.
The plot is not bad and it was a fast read. It ended with a kind of a cliffhanger so I will be reading Cytonic soon to find out what happens next! I hope the next novel lives up to the rest of the novels as I am not the biggest fan of novellas in general!
We have the same exact reading profile! Love it
