I funny thing about reading these two books is that I did not know that they took place in the spaces between three concurrent games. The first one is a perfect standalone, without having looked at or played the games, and the second took a tiny scooch of research to understand. Both of them were intricately and exquisitely well written.
I have a lot of feelings about the Gods in question, and the constant rebirth cycle, but mostly I remain in utter awe of the fact every single one of Sanderson's books has a completely different, and fully worked out, magical system of its own.
Myth, Medievelism, and Magic everything a Fantasy should be.
I've never played the game this book is about but the story is amazing. It starts like fantasy and it ends like sci-fi but the transition is smooth and very well done.
The most amazing thing to me after reading this is the fact that this is the first Brandon Sanderson book I've ever read. I clearly have been missing out.
It is novella-length; it's rather as if it's been serialized into novellas instead of being one large book. Personally, I think that's great. If I wasn't enjoying it at this point, I would have spent half as much as buying a full-length novel. So I really don't know why anyone is complaining. Okay, it does suck if you were caught off-guard by it, but I'll bet you can think of a book you wish you'd only wasted half the time and money on.
I really love the unconventional start, just after what should have been a climactic scene. The inclusion of technology as deadminds was intriguing; it's always entertaining when tech effectively becomes magical items.
All in all, loved it. On the down side, apparently the second book picks up some distance off and expects that you're familiar with the story from the video game. That's really giving me pause about reading it.

Fantasy. Fiction. Literature. Trained from birth in swordplay and combat, a young knight named Siris has journeyed to the Dark Citadel with a single purpose: fight through the army of Titans to face the tyrannical God King in one-on-one combat. This was his father's sacred mission, and his father's before him, going back countless generations in an effort to free their people from enslavement. But when Siris somehow succeeds where all those from his bloodline previously have failed, he finds himself cast into a much larger world, filled with warriors and thieves, ancient feuds and shifting alliances, Deathless immortals and would-be kings. His quest for freedom will take him on an epic journey in search of the mythical figure known as the Worker of Secrets - the one being in the world who can unravel the secrets of the Infinity Blade. Based on the bestselling video game from ChAIR Entertainment and Epic Games, this all-new adventure from acclaimed fantasy author Brandon Sanderson digs deeper into the fantastical world of Infinity Blade, a world of mystery and intrigue where magic and technology are indistinguishable, and even life and death are not what they seem. Brandon Sanderson has published six solo novels with Tor Books-Elantris, the Mistborn trilogy, Warbreaker, and The Way of Kings-as well as four books in the middle-grade Alcatraz Versus the Evil Librarians series from Scholastic. He was chosen to complete Robert Jordan's long-running Wheel of Time series, to which he added 2009's The Gathering Storm and 2010's Towers of Midnight, as well as the final book in the series, A Memory of Light, scheduled for release in 2012. Currently living in Utah with his wife and children, Brandon teaches creative writing at Brigham Young University.

Esta es la misión que ha heredado de toda su estirpe y que se remonta a incontables generaciones, en un continuo esfuerzo por liberar a su pueblo de la esclavitud. Pero cuando finalmente parece lograr su cometido, Siris se verá de pronto arrojado a un mundo mucho más peligroso, lleno de guerreros, ladrones, antiguos conflictos, peleas y alianzas cambiantes, entre mortales, inmortales y aspirantes a reyes.
Sus ansias de libertad le llevarán a un viaje épico en busca de un ser –el único ser en el mundo– que podrá desentrañar los verdaderos secretos de Infinity Blade, la Espada Infinita.
