This was definitely more enjoyable the second time around, for a couple of reasons I think. First, I wasn’t as hung up emotionally about the cast from the first trilogy as I was the first time around. Second, instead of viewing this as a “western” (which I kind of loathe) I just framed it as a high fantasy set in the wild west—which, I mean, it *IS*. So I was able to really appreciate the incredible world building and magic system that Sanderson created for what they are: INCREDIBLE. Also, I forgot how freaking funny Wayne is. That dude CRACKS ME UP!

A Re-read for me, but it's great to be back with these charctacters. In this world where Sanderson will give you all the world building, Magic system and fun adventure you need. A good set up to a series that improves with each book and although it has a very different atmosphere to Era 1,the writing is tighter and female characters better written and fully realised. Can't wait to keep reading!

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.
