Mistborn Review


Yes, I think I’m finally getting out of my reading slump. *fingers crossed* I finished Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson today so here’s the review…!

Once, a hero arose to save the world. A young man with a mysterious heritage courageously challenged the darkness that strangled the land.
He failed.
For a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has failed miserably.
Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and even the Lord Ruler himself. A new kind of uprising is being planned, one built around the ultimate caper, one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine, a street urchin who must learn to master Allomancy, the power of a Mistborn.-goodreads.com summery

I can see myself rereading Mistborn in the future. It is full of amazing and well thought out characters in a complex and interesting world. The plot is also very interesting and, once it picks up, becomes very fast paced.

Things I Liked
As I mentioned above, all of the characters are amazing! They all have their own personality that Brandon Sanderson takes time to develop. He also does a good job of making you feel a certain way for specific characters. You love the characters you are supposed to love, sympathize with the ones you’re supposed to sympathize with, and so on.

I also really enjoyed the plot. It took a very simple and overdone concept (oppressed people try to overthrow an oppressive ruler) and put a new spin on things. I loved learning about Allomancy and seeing Vin become stronger as she learned to use it. I feel like this book hinted that there is still a lot about Allomancy that we don’t completely understand, so I can’t wait to explore that in the next books!

And speaking of Vin becoming stronger, can we just talk about her character development. She went from a shy girl who couldn’t really defend herself and didn’t trust anyone, to this strong woman who kicks butt and she finds a group of friends who accept her.

Things I Didn’t Like
Um… the text in my copy of the book was small… But in all seriousness, I don’t have any real negatives for this book.

Overall, Mistborn is full of fleshed out characters, and an interesting plot. Each character has their own story to tell thus helping the reader to learn about the complex world of Mistborn. I can see myself rereading this book some time in the future and I can even see this series becoming one of my favorite series if it keeps getting better at this rate.
