Well, this book came highly recommended to me and it did not disappoint. The first book in the Mistborn series is an engrossing story with a diverse set of characters. I've read a lot of reviews praising Brandon Sanderson for his remarkable world building, and I would agree. However, his characters are just as detailed, in my opinion.

But world building and character establishment border on fancy literary analysis. What is more important to me is the fact that the story of Kelsir and his crew was exciting and thrilling. The "I-don't-need-sleep" kind of excitement. Yeah, it was that good.

The only reason I did not give this book a 5-star rating would be because I found the book had some pacing issues. At times, the story felt drawn out and slow. Hopefully the next book in the series picks up the pace.
