This is a fast-paced adventure for readers of all ages by Brandon Sanderson, bestselling author of the Mistborn series and the Stormlight Archives. Here, in a school for the magically gifted, your talent could cost you your life . .

. Joel is fascinated by the magic of Rithmatics, but few have the gift and he is not one of them. Undaunted, he persuades Professor Fitch to teach him magical theory.

Joel can't infuse his protective lines and circles with power, or bring his chalk-drawn creatures to life, but he's quick to master the underlying geometric principles. His unique skills will soon face an extraordinary test when top Rithmatist students are kidnapped from his Academy. Since he's not a magic user, Joel appears to be safe - but he's desperate to investigate and prove himself.

Then people start dying. However, can Joel really stop a killer alone? As even more students disappear, he realizes he'll need the help of Rithmatist apprentice Melody. Together, they must race to find clues before the killer notices them - and takes them out too.

The Rithmatist is a New York Times bestseller and will be enjoyed by adult and young adult readers alike. The book features illustrations by Ben McSweeney, which depict the magical elements of the novel with great elegance and insight.

Ina Fabian a dat nota:

Even though is only my second book read from Brandon Sanderson, I am fascinated by his capacity to build a fantasy world in such intricate way. The story reminded me so much of Harry Potter world. I somehow pictured professor Fitch as professor Horace Slughorn (Potions), the main character Joel as Harry Potter (because he has many problems along the way and a far from perfect life), Melody as Hermione (mainly due to her annoyingly behaviour 😁) and Nalizar as professor Snape. I loved the worldbuilding: the magic school with classes, the spells (made in chalk) that needed to be mastered in theory and practice as well in order to be successful. Everything was easy to understand since there were drawings with the spells at each chapter. Also, I've noticed the second book was supposed to be released in 2017. It definitely exceeded the deadline :))
