Book Review: Mistborn: Secret History (Mistborn #3.5) by Brandon Sanderson

Three Stars

“Fortunately, before I died, I put a plan into motion. I can’t remember it, but I’m certain it was brilliant.”

Even Babe Ruth struck out occasionally. Not that this is a swing and a miss. More like a little blooper into left center field. A hit, but disappointing.

“Stop him? He’s the force of entropy, a universal constant.”

I read and liked all three original Mistborn books, but saw no need for nor felt any connection to this one, despite Sanderson’s avowal that fans clamored for it. The publisher may have clamored, too, but that doesn’t make it all that good.

“Reality isn’t healthy for a man’s ego.”

Sanderson is a good writer, but the plotting was sketchy and the character development was assumed to have already happened. Nice cover art.

“A good crew leader is always sure of himself, even when he isn’t. Especially when he isn’t.”

Only for die-hard fans.

“The end was not the end.”
