4.0 out of 5 stars Good opener, 1 Nov. 2009
This review is from: The Final Empire: Mistborn Book One: 1 (Paperback)
To be honest I've not read Brandon's work before and whilst I'd heard the name I only really decided to give him a go after his nomination for the David Gemmell Award last year as well as having had the mantle of concluding Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series thrust upon him.

What was evident with this novel was that the he'd taken plenty of time to construct the tale as the world building was very good, I loved the concept of the Evil Empire having risen for so long and looked back at the novel more as a Star War's: New Hope (Episode 4) type of tale. The characters were pretty rounded, the careful sculpting of the scenes wonderfully creative and its easy to see with his own writing style why he was picked to finish Jordan's series. Its pretty addictive and I found it engrossing as I read late into the night with this offering regretting the time I had to put it down for some sleep. I'll look forward to future novels in the series to see where it goes and hope for continual character growth as I loved the people that I met within.
