Hugely enjoyed this second part! More interesting (female) characters and actual character development from David. Less of a one man show too. Looking forward to part tree :) Andrews voice acting was spot on as always!

Exciting except for disappointing female character

The story and Sandersons world building are amazing as usual. I was really annoyed by the treatment of the one (!) main female character, however. Especially the way in which the main character treats her in the beginning (and it's viewed as "flirting") and how she's tossed aside at the end. Vin was the only woman in Kelzier's team but at least she got stuff done and didnt only exist as a love interest without contributing to the actual story. Still, this might improve in the next books of the series.
In general, Sanderson seems to have liked his main character a bit too much, he finds a way out of all difficult situations that somehow the much more experienced teammates don't.

One of his best works

I was biased before starting the Alloy of Law since the book is a lot shorter than the other Mistborn or Stormlight Archive books. Looking back this might be one of its greatest strengths: there is not a moment wasted in this book. The narrative unfolds seamlessly and there is none of my usual confusion with character names and places since there are only three excellent main characters and one city in which everything takes place. The Steampunk/Wild West atmosphere was a great breath of fresh air after all his high fantasy works. In short, a definite recommendation from me.
