This was my third time through Alloy of Law, and I still love it.
It seems the deeper I get into seeing the Cosmere fit together, the greater my appreciation for what Brandon Sanderson has accomplished. None of his Cosmere stories require knowledge of their connections to be fun to read. But once you see the threads, you can’t stop seeing how completely brilliant it is that they’re there at all!
Alloy of Law moves forward in time about 500 years from the world of the original Mistborn trilogy. The characters we loved are now part myth, part history. Now there are new characters with the same powers–and this time they’re Wild West gunslingers fighting outlaws in the big city during an industrial age. The 2nd Mistborn trilogy is a little bit old, a little bit new, and a lot bit awesome.
Action violence, a few mild swears (no 4-letter), and some mild innuendo.
Best for 14 and up.

Re-Reading to prepare for Shadows of Self…
Not sure why I didn’t give this book 5 stars to start with. I loved it this time around. All set for Shadows of Self and The Bands of Mourning.

The Alloy of Law….hmm, what to say about it?
It started off slow and asked me to invest in the characters before I knew them well enough. As the story progressed things finally started to pick up, and I even felt like I liked the main characters. They never endeared themselves to me, however, and I’ve already forgotten about them. Luckily, the story that started slow eventually picked up steam and turned into something really exciting!
The whole story felt like a set up for something more, and I wish I’d have know that because I likely would have waited until there was more to read!
Very fun–B.S. writes the best fight scenes ever! I recommend to all Mistborn fans, bit be prepared to feel like there’s more to the story that we don’t know about yet!
