The Emperor's Soul - Brandon Sanderson Very interesting story. My first thoughts ran, "Cool, it's high-class magical forgery done Brandon Sanderson style!" And then I realized it had heart and soul, which, upon reflection, was very Sanderson. What blew my mind the most was the depth of characterization, perhaps being the best of all his works.

It's a short work, but ultimately one worth remembering and enjoying and re-reading.
