Almost 200 pages into The Alloy of Law, and I can’t decide if I like this portion of the Mistborn series I can’t exactly figure out why either. The more modern setting may be part of it. The lack of a strong female character at this point may be another part of it. Only references to the original lore instead of it being significantly expanded upon may also be part of it. I usually like banter between characters, but even that is falling short for me. It just doesn’t have the same feel as the original Mistborn trilogy, imo... I’ve read the short story in Arcanium Unbound and wonder how that affects this portion of the series, though. Is there a significant influence that helps these books, or are there just more references to the original trilogy?
