I’m not sure how to review this book. I can say I liked the first one a lot more but still the lat quarter of this book I enjoyed very much too.
So the Lord Ruler is gone and Elend is the king of Luthadel. City is under siege by two armies, Elend’s father Straff Venture and Ashweather Cett. Cett is not interested in Luthadel but its ATM and of course he doesn’t know that Elend and his crew (Kelsier’s old crew) could not find Lord Ruler’s ATM.
Straff think the city is his and he should be the king or even emperor.
In all the chaos Vin is the sole person that can protect Elend. She is the actual reason why neither of armies attack Luthadel. Her reputation as most powerful Mistborn who was trained by the survivor himself frightens almost everyone off.
During an attack from Seth assassins another Mistborn helps Vin to defeat them. This Mistborn turns out to be Straff’s Mistborn Zane which is Elend’s half brother. Zane is inetersted in Vin and she starts to see him as a friend or more…
There isn’t much action in this book but politics and character development. I really liked how Sazed role was growing through the book and to my surprise I liked the Kandra. I can’t say much about Vin but her character’s reasonable enough for her story, how she is hesitant between Zane and Elend. How she trust her instincts…
I’ll wait to read the third book and then might change some of my opinions.
