Mistborn: The Final Empire

Mistborn: The Final Empire - Brandon Sanderson This was my introduction to Sanderson, and I can say I was impressed.

I enjoyed Sanderson's take on magic, the premise behind the use of metals is an intriguing concept. His characters are charismatic and likable, though I, personally, would have liked to hear a bit more about their backgrounds. Maybe that comes in later books in the series?

I felt the introduction of the Venture Kandra was odd, there didn't seem to be any purpose behind mentioning it... I felt this part was unnecessary and threw off the flow of the story a little bit.

This is one series that I'll definitely be picking up again once I've finished with my reading challenges for this year.

4.75 stars.
