Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson

I warned you.  As I catch up on any and all the Brandon Sanderson I can get my onion-y hands on, there is going to be a lot of reviews featuring the author.  Last week I wrapped up my look at The Reckoners series with two reviews, Mitosis and Calamity.  Now, the G.O.B. is closing in on talking about all…
