Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now 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. 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.… (mer)

Comparing to Mistborn trilogy, it's fun and easy and light, but just as good. There are still some scenes, that are just a little bit too long, describing who-did-what in the fights, but comparing to Mistborn is much quicker read, much more fast-paced.

It's amazing to see how the world of Scadrial developed, you do not get that in many books. Seeing where the world is after the time that had passed since the Final Ascension – especially since is in that time where the first electric lights are being installed, the railroads are developing, the fire guns are getting common, which I love. And of course, there are the plot twists and great characters, that you expect from Sanderson, with this big "oh-my-god" moment just at the end... When you think that he wrote something much lighter and easier and everything, he slaps you in the face with this dark, almost scary revelation, leaving you speechless and wanting to read the next book.

This book was rather a step down from the previous Mistborn series: it was engaging and the characters became interesting after a while, but Sanderson's sometimes awkward and juvenile writing style was more difficult to ignore than in previous books. Also *spoilers* the part about women being stolen 'for breeding purposes' was both gratuitously stomach turning and also sort of hastily skimmed over; of course, I expect that this will be dealt with (for better or for worse) in the continuation of this story in the following books, but the amount of discomfort I experienced encountering the concept far outweighs the entertainment value of the book as a whole.. . and this isn't a book I would read for any purpose other than sheer entertainment. Also, I don't know if I care enough to read the next books in the series, so I may never find out the resolution to this plot point? Disappointing. ( )

I wanted to like it, but I guess I just wasn’t in the right head space for a western buddy cop book. I’ll try it again in the future. ( )

I was so enchanted by the first era of the Mistborn saga that I was positively thrilled when I learned the story picked up an era after the rebirth of Scadrial. I love the Wild West feel to this book and seeing how Sanderson’s magic system evolves with the changing technology from medieval to steam-powered. You will definitely not be disappointed with the pacing of action and discovery present in the Mistborn Saga that happens a little faster than his more epic Stormlight Archive.

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.
