Book Review: Mistborn By Brandon Sanderson
Dear reader(s?) if you have been following me you will have noticed an absence of entries from me. This is for three main reasons 1. I am changing the direction of One World, 2. I did not like how the second chapter of The Shading turned out, and 3. I am working on a short story to share. So I figured a book review of one of the best books I have ever read will be enough to hold you (all?) over.
This is going to read a little differently than my other book reviews. This is due to the simple fact that I think Mistborn: The Final Empire (Available at Amazon here) is one of the most complete and compelling stories I have ever come across. As of now, there are 3 books in the original trilogy, plus three more novels set a couple hundred years after the original trilogy, not to mention the novellas and short stories that are pretty easy to find for a great price. If you haven't read Sanderson, this will be an amazing treat. he can take magic and turn it scientific without losing the fantasy and wonder desired from a fantasy novel. The characters are well-developed, and the plot is exciting as it is unpredictable. I really can't imagine a group that shouldn't read this book. I guess I would say it is more challenging than Harry Potter, though not by much. There is plenty of action, which includes some wonderfully brutal scenes, so just be aware of that.
Brandon Sanderson has become my favorite author, and Mistborn is to thank for that. I wish this entry could be longer, but I am going to start getting sappy with compliments, and I don't have anything to say, so goodbye.
If you are interested just click here and enjoy.
Also for the whole original trilogy, you can go here.
If you are looking for the second trilogy, you can find the first one here
NOTE: I didn't even say anything about Sanderson's Cosmere, just google that word and prepare to be blown away.
