He pulled that off really well. Transporting his action and 'magic' rich Mistborn material to a western-steampunk-SherlockHolmes future of the same world? I definitely didn't expect that but was very well entertained (and amused). Good listen! - On a side note: very interesting how Sanderson develops the storylines containing religious ideas of the characters. Like a little bonus: nice to have a fun philosophical idea to ponder when not listening to the book :)

I too was not sure about the more "modern setting of this new series, but I ended up being surprised at how well it worked. I truly enjoyed the characters, the story, and the new world. Or would it be the older world? Depends on how you look at it I guess, but it is the same world as the original series, just 300 years after the end of the last book. I thought the bits and pieces of the original story were tied in cleverly and not overdone. There was also some good humor in the dialogue between two of the main characters, and of course, that dialogue was brilliantly performed yet again by Michael Kramer. Overall, I loved it and am looking forward to the next one. However... It was way too short. I know that any book you really get into can seem short simply because you don't want it to end, and while that is true for this book, this one really IS too short. I was so excited it was out I just bought it straight away, but when I went to download it I honestly though something had gone wrong and I was missing the other two parts! I can see why a big new release like this was only one credit, but even so I felt like I should have a bit more book for my buck. I hope this is a one time occurrence and the rest of the series will be back up to size. Still, I thoroughly enjoyed what was there, and will just keep fingers crossed for the next one.

Loved it, well laid out, perfect level of detail, so no boring sections. Once his entire cosmos of books click into place, like an impossibly complex maze of 100 switches all needing to be iron/steel pushed/pulled in the right direction at the very correct precise moment, a complexity unseen to all but the most gifted allomancer's tin enhanced eyes... you will see Brandon Sanderson surpass Robert Jordan's epic and redifine the Fantasy Fiction world.
Many reading this would be wondering what the hell I am talking about, to those review readers.... think like Wax and do some investigation on the cosmos :D
This level of writing goes beyond what you have known.
Thank you Brandon for all you have done.
