The Lost Metal (Mistborn, book 7)
By: THE Brandon Sanderson
My Rating: FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS
Best for: 16 and up
That was…explosive. BEST BRANDO SANDO YET? It just might be.
Rusts. It’s been 12 hours since I turned the last page of this EXPLOSIVE finale to Wax and Wayne’s contribution to The Mistborn Saga and I’m still reeling. I’ve got stuff bouncing around my head. I couldn’t sleep. I NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO!!
If you’re here because you’re a Mistborn veteran and you just want to know if The Lost Metal is worth your time, here you go:
Holy crap, yes. This book is up there with my favorite Brando’s ever. Read it. It’s as close to perfect as you’re going to find. You’ll want to know that it’s easily the most blatantly Cosmere-aware book yet and it’s BRILLIANT.
Content: There are a handful PG swears and Wayne level (im)mature jokes. Plenty of non-gory violence. Best for 16 and up.
If you’re here because you’re seeing all the buzz about The Lost Metal but you’ve never read a Mistborn book–or a Brandon Sanderson book before–then this is for you:
You’ve just discovered the work of the greatest Fantasy author of our day! Lucky you! My short recommendation? Go read The Final Empire, book 1 of Mistborn.
