The Alloy of Law (Mistborn #4)
written by Brandon Sanderson
published by Tor Books
Did I enjoy this book: It was everything I loved about the Mistborn Trilogy, but set, unfortunately, in some sort of post-Vin-and-Elend Wild West. I like Wax and his crew, but I’m not really a fan of gun fights, train robberies, or the classic “Bad Guy Kidnapping Girls for Use in His Evil Scheme” bit. I suppose it’s an interesting Metallurgic version of the Old West, but it just wasn’t for me.
I’m contemplating the pros and cons of continuing the series.
Would I recommend it: Actually, yes. Especially if you’ve read the Mistborn Trilogy, would you pretty please read this one and get back to me? I can’t possibly be the only one who loved the first three books and didn’t really care for this one, can I?
About the book – from Goodreads: Centuries after the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is on the verge of modernity – railroads, electric street lights, and skyscrapers. Waxillium Ladrian can Push on metals with his Allomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or heavier at will. After 20 years in the dusty Roughs, in the city of Elendel, the new head of a noble house may need to keep his guns.
