    #4The Alloy of Law (Mistborn Series)

    The Alloy of Law (Mistborn Series)

    This book is set 300 years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, where Scadrial is becoming a prominent city.

    ""The Alloy of Law" is the final part of the rich Mistborn series, and as such continues to add to the Cosmere tapestry. Readers will love discovering more of the legacy of Vin and Elend, as well as finding complex new characters like Wax and Wayne. Allomancy continues to be a convoluted and compelling part of the story arc. Great book for teen readers as well as parents."

    "The Mistborn series is a good and enthralling series from the first book through this most recent one. Changing the setting and going more towards modernism is an interesting and welcome turn for the series, and this installment does not fail to enthrall me just as the original series did."
