  • Loveable characters? Yes

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!
