The Alloy of Law - Brandon Sanderson I've always loved clever mash-ups between genres, but I hadn't expected this one. A western with Brandon Sanderson's fantastic world-building and magic system from the Mistborn trilogy? Brilliant. I have never really loved westerns, but I was able to get into this one with joy and amusement. The characters are very well developed, despite being somewhat cookie-cutter western materials. The saving grace and perhaps the transcendence of the book is the reliance on its gods and magic system. I didn't know if I'd have enjoyed this book because it was several hundred years after the time of the first three, but now I'm hoping to read a long line of mistborn books.
