For the letter E, I want to talk about the book Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. I don’t want to do a book review, but it’s safe to say I adored the book. (Mr. Sanderson’s books are always awesomeness times ten).
Recently, my roommate read Elantris for the first time. She loved it too, but it terrified her. See in the book there are these creatures called Seons. They are described as floating balls of light with words in them. The words are called Aons and are pretty sweet shaped non-English words. They are a great part of the world-building.
They frightened my roommate. First, the pictures of the Aons creeped her out completely and then the thought of those strange symbols floating in the air while she was sleeping . . .
(If I was a mean roommate and had some glow in the dark paint, I would’ve had so much fun.)
It’s interesting what frightens people. At least the Seons aren’t as the two scary things in this video:
