Review: Mistborn Adventure Game

Mistborn Adventure GameMistborn Adventure Game by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I’m not a dice RPG gamer, but I did want to read the short story in here – “The 11th Metal”. It’s a prequel for the first book of the first Mistborn trilogy. That said, it’s definitely best not to read before having read the first book of the trilogy unless you want some spoilers. Actually, I think the best place for a reader would be to read it after the second book as the reader would be able to get even more out of it. Story-wise it’s in the category of the fan service prequel. There’s no reason to read it other than to see a main character from the first book before that character was good at their job. Nothing is revealed that wasn’t already sufficiently revealed in the first book. So it’s all fan-service fun. That said, if put together with revelations from the last book in the trilogy, it does raise some interesting questions.

For the RPG section, don’t read that part until you’ve read the whole first trilogy unless you don’t mind spoilers before reading a story.
