"Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds. Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history--or religion.Yet even as science and technology are reaching new heights, the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world. Out in the frontier lands known as the Roughs, they are crucial tools for the brave men and women attempting to establish order and justice. One such is Waxillium Ladrian, a rare Twinborn who can Push on metals with hisAllomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or heavier at will. After twenty years in the Roughs, Wax has been forced by family tragedy to return to the metropolis of Elendel. Now he must reluctantly put away his guns and assume the duties and dignity incumbent upon the head of a noble house. Or so he thinks, until he learns the hard way that the mansions and elegant tree-lined streets of the city can be even more dangerous than the dusty plains of the Roughs. "--… (altro)

:mumbles under my breath: I don't understand how Marsh and Kelsier are worshipped...

I made a few predictions in the Sanderson Collectors Guild discord that turned out to be true and one I regretted being true.

Someone (I'm looking at Dave currently with sus eyes) sent me the first three books in paperback to read before TLM's release and I've been feverishly trying to finish them.

In general I enjoyed TFE more at first glance; Vin was a more likeable and relatable char to me and I enjoyed Kelsier's crew (if not him). I also found the whole unhinged plot to kill the Lord Ruler more interesting than this women being kidnapped and theft ring (both are horribly simplified versions of the plot).

The twist at the end of TFE also serviced my personal interests moreso then the one at the end here. Perhaps because I called AoL's twist so quickly.

Anyhow I enjoyed Steris, found Wayne charming in a way, nearly smacked Wax several thousand times and eyed Marasi a bit suspiciously often so at least it made sense why she was so unforthcoming about her history. ( )

I had no idea that any of the Cosmere books were Weird Westerns and I'm thrilled. The action in this is tremendous. The characters are a delight. Such a fun read. ( )

I was hesitant about this book. I liked the first 2 Mistborn books but I was not happy with the third one.

This book reboots the series far after the third book and adds a large dash of steampunk to the series. What was already one of my favorite magic systems is even better with steampunk.

I am also pleased to say that I loved the book. Probably one of my favorites for this last year. I will be reading the next one immediately. ( )

While Sanderson never disappoints, I really expected and wanted more character depth in this novel. It was an easy and enjoyable read, but not up to par with the rest of the Mistborn novels. Sanderson himself has said that this particular novel wasn't meant to be the first in the modern Mistborn trilogy, though it's been billed as such, but even still - I expected a little more plot and character depth than I got with this read.

Should you read it? Of course. Sanderson is a genius and it's all sorts of entertaining. Just don't expect his usual amount of delightful depth. ( )

Highly recommended for fantasy fans, especially followers of the original trilogy. This fantasy is not a stale visit to a fondly remembered setting. Rather, it offers a fresh view of how a world can grow, building new dimensions into the best of the old. Sanderson continues to show that he is one of the best authors in the genre.

Who is never afraid to tell me what is wrong with a book,
then fight for that same book no matter who else gives up on it.
