I found everything about this book to be super unique. I've never been enveloped in a world like this and probably will never be again. Brandon Sanderson has a wonderful vision and execution of his writing. He is truly a treasure.

Yumi is quiet and sweet. She follows the rules, but feels a deep longing for change. The Painter is troubled to his core, but dreams of so much more. They are poler opposites, but just what the other needs.

They fight a battle on two fronts, taking over each others lives in strange ways. Painter in Yumi's body, but Yumi in Painters place. Together they need to figure out why the spirits have brought them together, but it won't be easy.

As the shadows close in, truths are revealed that I promise you wont see coming. With the mystery of the ending looming, you will definitely have to read this book.
