Mistborn: The Final Empire

Mistborn: The Final Empire
Mistborn #1
Brandon Sanderson
fantasy
4 stars

this kid is FANTASTIC! This was better than Elantris and is the start to a series, length unknown. End of the earth. Mankind united under the Lord Ruler, a man who saved humanity from something called “the Deepness”. Allomancy[the ability to burn metals internally to gain greater powers] is now common among the nobility. Skaa form a workforce. This book is about a rebellion to dethrone the Lord Ruler[who is, seemingly, unkillable]. Great characters, and nice twist at the end.

/edit 2013
Sanderson and I are contemporaries. So it makes me laugh to see myself calling him “kid”. Of course, the last 7 years have proven how great he is at Fantasy.
