Mistborn: A Review by Alyson

The most recent book I read was Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson. This book was so awesome! This is one of my favorite book.  Mistborn is a sci-fi book that is set in the future. This book is about the main character, Vin, in the Final Empire, a country oppressed by the ruler, Lord Ruler. Vin is a skaa which is basically a slave. No one cares about them. The higher ups are a group called the nobles.  In the beginning of the novel, Vin learns she is a person called a Mistborn. A mistborn is a type of allomancer which involves controlling certain types of metals.  They can use metals in their system to do certain tasks.  An example would be steel is used to push on the metals nearby.  So if you were to stand on a metal coin and "push" you would go flying into the air.  A mistborn can use all of the allomancer metals while a misting can only use one.  The whole plot of the story is to take the kingdom back from the Lord Ruler.  It seems confusing but it will all make sense if you read it.  You will love it.  Other than sci-fi, this book has action, adventure and romance.  That is why I love this book so much.  It isn’t just one genre; it’s a bunch of my favorites.  This book is just so epic. I couldn't put it down.  I recommend this book to mostly people who enjoy sci-fi/fantasy books.
