Review of 'Shadows of Self: A Mistborn Novel [Paperback] Brandon Sanderson' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This was another great book by Brandon Sanderson. The Mistborn series is one of his most popular and it's easy to see why. It combines interesting characters, action-packed plots, and an intricate world with amazing magic. While I'm not a fan of Western-type stories and this was not as good as the original trilogy, Shadows of Self was still fun and an enjoyable read. Most interesting for me were the little details thrown at the end that hint at future story developments.
