I enjoyed the book but the story is a very sharp departure from the original story line. Moving in to the beginnings of the Industrial era was a bit unsatisfying. You have to read the earlier books to get this one but this one ends with an unsolved mystery and lacks the epic scale of its predecessors.
Great start for the new era of scadriel. Fast and exciting this book makes a great transition to the faster paced living of a industrial civ. Great performance by Michael Kramer as always.
This book is what every one wishes would happen after a trilogy. I loved how many ties and references there were to the original series. Only complaint, if you can call it one, is that it's really short. LOVED Wayne's character and all his awesome quirks. especially his refinement for accents.
Or exciting, or anything for that matter.... It's a bad western story involving people with superpowers - boring
I read the first three books in the Mistborn series years ago and didn't even know it continued until recently. The Alloy of Law is the fourth book in the series and picks up a few hundred years after the conclusion of book three, set in a world different from the original trilogy. Allomancy and Feruchemy are both still part of society, however we begin to see technological advances in the world that were missing from the days of the Lord Ruler (cars, guns, trains, etc.).
The book is filled with action and keeps a steady pace that kept me wanting to listen nonstop. Michael Kramer does an excellent job narrating this story (outstanding job with the character Wayne, our comic relief character) and I would recommend the book to anyone who is a fan of the Mistborn series or Sanderson's work.
Performance was great! The book was exciting and had some great twists. The mix of powers and industrialization makes for an intriguing story. Sanderson always leaves more to think about at the end of the Mistborn books. Can't wait to download the next in the series!
I became a fan of Brandon Sanderson when he helped wrap up The Wheel of Time series. Since then I have gobbled up everything he writes and I'm always pleased. Series does not disappoint. The performer is the same as the Wheel of Time series as well as Sanderson's phenomenal Way of Kings. He's the best of the best.
