A killer is on the loose...Joel is fascinated by the art of Rithmatics - with its lines of power and ability to bring chalk drawings to life - but only a few have the gift and he is not one of them. When Rithmatic students from Joel's school start disappearing, he is keen to investigate. Since he's not a Rithmatist, Joel seems to be safe - but others are dying. Can he find the killer before the killer realizes just what a threat Joel really is?

I recommend The Rithmatist to fans of Brandon Sanderson, as it contains the wonderful qualities that he is known for as a fantasy author. I also recommend it to everybody else. Whether you love or hate epic fantasy, this book is something different. It's an easy read, absorbing, and has the kind of twists and turns that will leave you clamouring for more. I firmly believe that this can be considered Harry Potter for the next generation. I love it that much. ONCE UPON A TIME 20130808
