While this book didn’t have the same “Wtf, did that actually just happen?!” plot twists that are a Sanderson hallmark (I mean, I knew what would happen to Lessie and who Mr Suit had to be pretty quickly,) this was definitely a solidly entertaining, if not downright excellent projection of progress in Scandria (is that the name? I don’t recall such from the first trilogy, so was thrown off-balance when it came up in this book, to the point that I forgot what the planet was called. And am too lazy and sleepy now to look it up.) There were a ton of wry in-jokes in reference to the first trilogy, which I adored. Tho I was a bit annoyed to get to the end of the book and realize this wasn’t a standalone novel but the first of another trilogy — forgiveable only because I know Mr Sanderson’s incredible work ethic will ensure that I’ll be able to enjoy the rest of the trilogy without an inordinate wait. It’s also been a lot of fun discussing this with Ingress Book Club!
