This book is honestly my favorite book in the entire universe. Everything’s just so amazing about it and it is honestly the best book I have encountered while on my reading journey. I read this forever ago way back in 6th grade, so a few weeks ago I decided I needed to do a re-read and introduce this to my brother who’s also in 6th grade to get him back into reading, and the cool part is, that it worked! Anyway let’s stop this mumbo jumbo and start this review!
In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with color once more?
In Brandon Sanderson’s intriguing tale of love, loss, despair and hope, a new kind of magic enters the stage — Allomancy, a magic of the metals.

Words cannot express the love I have for this book. The characters are so likable and you don’t realize how much you love them, before something terrible happens. Brandon Sanderson is one of those authors that play with your emotions and ALWAYS comes up with the most amazing plot twists and because he somehow get’s you to love these characters without even realizing it. I loved the idea for this book, it’s so original and fun and amazing! The Setting is just so interesting and different that you love it for that. This is totally a High Fantasy Novel. He really get’s you immersed into his writing and his worlds! I have not liked any of the series he’s ever released and that’s what I love about him. This story is a Street Urchin named Vin, who lives in a world where there is a tyrant called the Lord Ruler. There was this huge fight against the Darkness that fought the land and somehow The Lord Ruler won. The world is in a wreck from the great fight and so there are ash mounts and other crazy things. But the Lord Ruler has never died, and that was thousands of years ago, he’s been stabbed, punched, kicked, and had his head cut off but he always heals himself. Some say that the Lord Ruler is god. But Vin knows different, The Lord Ruler can be killed, and only Vin can find out how.
Well I have to admit that the pacing was a little slow, but was easily renewed for the second half of the book. Overall this book is amazing, glorious, and I’d recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy!
