Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson (with plans to read its sequels, The Well of Ascension and The Hero of Ages, as well as the standalone follow-up The Alloy of Law). It reminds me of a cross between Scott Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies, and Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson's Dune novels (which I think much more highly of than most other people I know), and is as much Science Fiction as it is Epic Fantasy (two genres that Sanderson very deftly blends into one seamless whole).
