Brandon Sanderson. Because Brandon effing Sanderson.
*fan girls for a bit*
Let me just start out this post by saying I met another Sanderson fanatic while in England this past week. There is nothing as amazing as meeting someone else who ADORES the Stormlight Archives. Instant friends.
Literally I think the life changing sentence was “I have to ask, are you a Kaladin fan?”
IS THAT EVEN A REAL QUESTION? OF COURSE KALADIN, YES KALADIN. Can we also talk about Shallan? I have one word to say:
I ended up jumping up and down and waving my arms and squealing and talking really fast….and the rest of the room thought I was insane.
But that was okay, because we glared at the rest of the room and told them to go read the books right away. Because SANDERSON.
Anyway! Today I am reviewing a Sanderson book…obviously.
Book two in the Mistborn series. So. So. So. I liked book one, but it wasn’t AMAZING like I expected. It was damn good, but not Stormlight Archives level awesome.
But this one. Amazing.
There were still things I didn’t like, such as the love triangle…I just wanted to pull Sanderson’s hair out and demand that he not follow the triangle trope. And I did guess one of the big reveals, but there were several that I didn't guess.
His descriptions. Some of the descriptions in this book gave me actual chills. I cried at one point I was so happy.
And I was sad too. But I won’t get into that due to spoilers. But feels, people, FEELS.
Shit went down hardcore. The world is falling apart, and new enemies are introduced. I need to read the next book. Like…now.
Speaking of…excuse me. Must go read now.
Five stars <3
