I am still ploughing through the 3rd book in the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. Oh my, it is good. The second book had a bit of a twist at the end so the third book is not the story I was expecting.

This will sound weird for a fantasy series, but I love how realistic these books are. The people develop and the problems they have to face are complex and difficult to deal with. Everything seems to have a consequence, which sometimes can be overlooked in fantasy books.

There has also been a lot more world-building in this book. The origins of the races and creatures have been fleshed out a lot. Basically, it’s awesome and I highly recommend.

There has to be a balance… Somehow, we’ll find it. The balance between whom we wish to be and whom we need to be… But for now, we simply have to be satisfied with who we are.


You’d be surprised at what man will go through to get themselves properly intoxicated.
