Description

The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series and his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action, plus his ability to create vivid characters, made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time sequence. But with Mistborn, his standalone fantasies, and his new series, The Stormlight Archive, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction.

Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story set years after the events of Hero of Ages.

In a world recovering only slowly from evil, a world where allomancers wield immense power through their ability to unleash the magic bound up in common metals, someone who can burn metals that no-one has burned before can tip the balance....

Sanderson has the knack of giving the epic fantasy reader exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre and the dramatic story within The Alloy of Law shows off this skill to its very best.

A solid book, but leaves loose ends

Another good book in the Mistborn series by Sanderson. Excellent narration by Michael Kramer helps to bring the characters to life (although I felt he had trouble with the half cockney, half Aussie accent of Wayne, but it was entertaining in any case).

Whilst this novel is fundamentally a detective work and not my usual cup of tea, I did enjoy it tremendously. It's some few centuries on from the fall of the Final Empire: we have guns, trains, electricity, horseless carriages (well, I never!!!!) and new fangled machines.

It's all reminiscent of 19th century England or North America as you so desire to envisage. Sanderson provides a great setting and a well thought out plot. The characters aren't as powerful or versatile as the old true Mistborns, but within that constraint there's a lot of intricate and detailed use of the skills they have available which makes for interesting visualisations of how they achieve things. It's different, but still similar enough to what came before to keep it interesting.

There are still some ties to the distant past giving a feeling of familiarity so one is totally disassociated from the original trilogy.

I fervently hope that Sanderson follows this novel up to get on with the unfinished business and tie up the loose ends that the end of the book leaves us at. There is certainly a full novel worth of material to do so.

In short, if you're a fan of Sanderson and this genre, you'll like this book. I highly recommend it.

An amazing audio experience (the whole trilogy)

Would you listen to The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel again? Why?

Yes, because it's a great novel

What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The second character, Wayne, has a way of impersonating people that relies heavily on accents (and hats). Honestly, simply reading it will not be as great an experience as hearing the narrator bring these rich accents to life. This goes on throughout the whole Mistborn 2nd Era trilogy.

Good continuation of the series

The plot had a few technical issues but, on the whole, a very enjoyable narrative. Great writer.

Detective Novel with Allomancy

Sufficiently different to the rest of the Mistborn series to make it interesting, but at heart a detective story. Plenty of detail in the fights can go on a bit but a good listen all the same. (Why do authors insist on 'said' do they not own a thesaurus? In written form it isnt as obvious but when spoken it can be irritating.)

Gap filler

Well worth a read. Not up to his usual standard, and more of a side story than his usual epic. If you read the previous mist born series then you will enjoy the revisit.

Sanderson delivers!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have already recommended this book to a friend of mine.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel?

The book compares to all of the previous Mistborn novels. Although the setting is more modern and the characters are all new, I still get the same good feeling I got when reading the previous novels. Magical system works very well, the dialogue is interesting and fun, the pace of the novel is well balanced, good characters.

What about Michael Kramer’s performance did you like?

Kramer is my favorite reader. He always performs well.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It was indeed, it was hard to lay it aside.

Any additional comments?

It's too short! I would be surprised if this was the last book in this series.

Mistborn on a steam train!

Would you listen to The Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel again? Why?

No. It's worth a good listen, but not a repeat listen. However, some will enjoy a repeat just to listen to Wayne's jokes.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting bit was the

Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer – was your favorite?

Wayne was the most fun character in Brandon Sanderson's books - period! Too many of Brandon's characters are straight good, bad or definedly mixed.

Wayne, however, provided comic relief which should be encouraged in all heavy set novels.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. Although I was pining for return of characters from the original Mistborn series.

Any additional comments?

Even though a period story, it didn't stay true to the period setting. For example, parents were

I can't say too much without risking spoilers; but how the guns and the magic work together is so cool.

Which scene was your favorite?

I can't say without spoilers.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

One of his best works

I was biased before starting the Alloy of Law since the book is a lot shorter than the other Mistborn or Stormlight Archive books. Looking back this might be one of its greatest strengths: there is not a moment wasted in this book. The narrative unfolds seamlessly and there is none of my usual confusion with character names and places since there are only three excellent main characters and one city in which everything takes place. The Steampunk/Wild West atmosphere was a great breath of fresh air after all his high fantasy works. In short, a definite recommendation from me.

less epic, more action, still addictive

less epic than mistborn 1-3. but no less addictive. a much faster story with a lot of action and magic (adapted to the wild-west / industrial Revolution setting) make for an awesome start of mistborn 2.0

Interesting spinoff

Not as good as the original trilogy, but still interesting enough. A bit short though.

Must read for mistborn fans(and all others)

Feels like a criminal short story with a nice steam punk/wild west touch. Great character drawing as always by Sanderson. Very enjoyable read!
