The book I read was Rithmitist by Brandon Sanderson. The book was about a non-Rithmitist student named Joel and his friend Melody. Joel attends a Rithmatist school called Arimduas, only because Joel's mother is a night maid and works there. After students start disappearing is up to Joel and Melody to find the kidnapper and stop him. The atmosphere of the book is sorta Harry Potter esc and a little bit of steam punk mixed into it. The rate I would hit the book is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. The reason being is because there are some slow parts of the book that was really boring. They tried to lead to a romance but that just took way and sidetracked the reader. For example the Ice Cream parlor was just a wast of time. Non of the information in that scene was of any use except maybe the dollar. Over all thought the book is still fantastic and you should read it.
