The last Secret Novel from Brandon Sanderson, titled The Sunlit Man (or El hombre iluminado in Spanish, the version I read). This is the most Cosmere focused novel of the four, with a lot of references to The Stormlight Archives series; or at least I guess so, since I haven't read any books from that series yet, though some names feel familiar.

I've enjoyed it, just not as much as the others to be honest. I liked the environment a lot and the idea of a planet that can kill you easily and what that means for the population of the planet, their livelihood, their interactions, ... In the end is a Space Opera ala Sanderson, and I don't know if I just got spoiled with Tress of the Emerald Sea (my favorite of the three) that I just wanted something as different. and this one being the most similar to the novels I already read from Sanderson just made it a little worse for me.

Even with that, I recommend fantasy/sci-fi lovers a read; it's just around 500 pages of non-stop movement, you get to the heart of the story pretty quickly and from there is just non-stop movement until you get to the outcome in the final two-three chapters.

And with this, the year of Sanderson is over.
