  • I like the themes discussed here, the debate on the theme was forced though. 
  • The characters are written like real people. Some are flat, they'll probably be better in future books. Wish there was more diversity though, given how the previous triology was about race. There's no mention of LGBTQ people at all, say for a hint with Reyna.
  • I like the mental damages that the characters take actually represented, and have consequences. Unlike the physical damages that the characters can just breeze through (except last part).
  • The action scenes had a lot of slow-mo movie hero vibes to them. However whenever the characters were in danger, they were immediately rescued. Either by God themself, or some other way.

This gave cozy murder mystery vibes and I will not be taking comments on it.  The pacing of the story was good and it was easy to follow along.  The characters were great and the humor was always timed perfectly.  A moment of silence for Wayne’s lucky hat though.

Very different from the Era 1 Mistborn Trilogy, but just as wonderful in its own right. This book has a great new cast of characters doing Sherlock Holmes-style detective work with action throughout, and offers an intriguing (and sweetly emotional at times) expansion on the world from the first series. It was also MUCH funnier than I expected going in. I loved it to pieces, and can’t wait to read the rest of the series!
