Mistborn October 11, 2010

Started reading a new series two weeks ago: “Mistborn” by Brandon Sanderson.  It’s always interesting when you first start a fantasy series.  The author has to set the stage and draw you into the world simultaneously.  Sanderson did a masterful job of that.  I was immediately intrigued and wanted to keep reading.

Brandon did a great job balancing character development with story development.  It was easy to develop an interest in the characters and in some ways the relationships reminded me of Tolkien and the depth of friendship that you find in his writings.

At the same time he moved the plot along at a good pace, throwing a couple of twists in their that you don’t see coming.  The magic system is one of the most unique and interesting I’ve seen in fantasy writing.

This book reminded me of the original Star Wars movie in the way that it could stand alone and be a great story, but at the same time, you’re really glad that there is more to discover.

I don’t have a rating system, but if I did, I would give this book 5 stars.
