Loved It!!

5 stars

This was a great ending to this era of Mistborn. Loved all the new characters, loved, the old characters, loved Sanderson's writing as always, and just enjoyed the read all the way through. Totally worth reading! Now to some of his new books!

finished reading Wanderers by Chuck Wendig

Wanderers (Paperback, 2020, Del Rey) 5 stars

This is a hard review. The writing is amazing, as you would expect from Wendig. It's a crazy prediction of what happened during COVID-19, I had to keep reminding myself that it was written before the pandemic. Yet there were a number of things that nagged at me.

First, it really needed editing down. There was so much in this book that many parts came and went without any type a payoff or need to the story. Second, I felt Wendig got some of the details around religion wrong and you could tell it was written by someone that didn't quite understand the subject. Third, the ending was rough. It made the sort of turn that I wasn't expecting, nor did I want. Makes me double check if I want to read the next book.

Exactly what I thought it was

4 stars

This was exactly what I thought it would be. I like to grab one or two of these types of books to simply see if the story is worth following. Read the first Reacher book, and a few Vince Flynn books. Neither really stuck, unlike Orphan series from Hurwitz. This was more entertaining than those, but really don't feel a need to continue the series.
