Solano County Library teen, Quinn, reviews "Mistborn"!

Book: Mistborn

Author: Brandon Sanderson

Reviewer: Quinn, 9th Grade

A thrillingly exciting tale of adventure, horror, political struggles, and emotionally unexpected plot twists; Mistborn will hit you in the heart right where it needs to. The plotline? Skaas are races that have been oppressed for a millennium–and they’ve had enough. Thieving crews around the world thrive to put an end to the Lord Ruler’s evil reigning hand, but only one may succeed, or utterly fail. With compelling characters and a creative plotline, the well-known Brandon Sanderson swivels a story from rebellion to overthrowing–from love to hate. If you devote yourself to complex magic systems, long-oppressed viewpoints, and dreading passionate stabs–it’s the read for you. Sanderson attaches his readers to numerous conflicts and characters, only to tear them apart and rebuild relationships in a developmental manner. Oh, and if you were a fan of Harry Potter–it’s a must-add to your shelf.
