The Alloy of Law

11605507The Alloy of Law
Mistborn #4
by Brandon Sanderson
Fantasy
Ebook, 265 Pages
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Now this book was a LOT of fun to read. It was not one of Sanderson’s 600+ page epic tomes, but a fun revisitation to the Mystworld.

This was really a western at heart. I remember reading Louis Lamour when a young teen and how it appealed to me. Thankfully, Sanderson doesn’t write the same ultra-cliches that Lamour did, but that spirit was there.

The untamed gunslinger/magicuser comes back to supposed civilization and ends up having to clean up messes worse than he ever found out in the Wild, Wild West.

And it was a lot of fun to see allomancy used differently. Sanderson has given some good thought to the practical application and while I didn’t really care about the particulars, it was good to know that the internal physics of the world hadn’t been thrown jambalaya like into the plot pot.

  1. Glad you liked this one, I also really enjoyed it. This is probably my favorite Mistborn novel. It doesn’t have some of the uber character problems of the others and I really liked the tone and style. Have you read any of the Wax and Wayne novels?
