Nyssa's Reading Life

I like books. Well-written books, which generally excludes most YA (sorry, everybody). I edit literary fiction in my spare time, and I eat up books with great prose and no pretentiousness. I also love good speculative fiction and frequently read classics.

The Alloy of Law (Mistborn Series #4)

The Alloy of Law - Brandon Sanderson Though some serious Brandon Sanderson devotees might see this book as lighter and more inconsequential than his more epic-length books, it is by far the best written of all his books. He doesn't struggle with pacing issues at all here, and the story moves along at a fast clip. Sanderson creates solid characters here, and he refrains from much of his normal tics ("raised an eyebrow," "frowned," "snorted," etc.), substituting beats with complexity and characterization instead. It's fun to read, especially when you can make connections to the Mistborn world, and the last chapter hints at an excellent upcoming trilogy. Highly recommended, but only if you're already read the Mistborn trilogy.
