Just finished the Mistborn Trilogy. God drat was it a lot better than I expected. Will have to read through those notes on Sanderson's website to catch all the little bits I missed.

well thats the end of my Brandon Sanderson binge. Just finished Elantris and well holy poo poo! that ending was not at all what I was expecting

Hroden was one of the most interesting characters strong on duty but wrestling with his faith, I found his whole character arc fascinating and thought that he went out like a badass. Dilaf on the other hand was the perfect villain, Fanatical and initially seeming a great foil for Hroden and then the reveal was perfectly timed and it was not what I was expecting at all. In fact the only character I had any real problem with was Raoden I don't know why he just struck me as too perfect to be a believable character and towards the end too much of a messiah figure for me to like him.

Or "nanotech". Really, most sci-fi is just fantasy with different window dressing.

Don't forget "genetic engineering" the other go-to for magicalScientific transformation.
