But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story, building on the incredible success of The Alloy of Law. The new Mistborn books move the series into a richly imagined 19th-century analogue world with elements of the Wild West mixed with magic and science. It's a wonderful concoction from a master storyteller.
Sanderson has the knack of giving epic fantasy listeners exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre, and this novel will take him to the next level.

What a joy to pick up another of Mr Sanderson's books and be completely satisfied!
I love the characters in this story. Steris really comes into her own in this book, while Wayne continues to focus on his hats, and Wax still breaks things in spectacular fashion. I've always found these stories entertaining - there is a very gentle, but consistent thread of humour through it all, and I find myself wearing a little smile as I listen.
It's a satisfying ending to this trilogy, but the ground work has been set for yet more adventure. A word from Brandon Sanderson as an appendix confirms this, and he intends to get to work on it once he's finished the final instalment of the Stormlight series. Looking forward to it!
For Stormlight fans - watch out for Hoid who makes a very brief appearance.
Narration is spot on, as always!

Best of Wax and Wayne
I've been binging on Mistborn recently and while I don't think these books are as good as the original trilogy, I have grown very attached to Wax, Wayne and the rest of the gang. I think this book is certainly the best of their adventures so far and I am very much looking forward to the fourth and final book (nice surprise as I thought this was the last). Keep doing what you do, Mr Sanderson!
