    Mistborn is very good (good enough that I read the others once I found out there were more- also, it's a sequel, not prequel). He just comes up with very unique worlds, and very unique magic/powers for its inhabitants. Someone on CF sent me that direction, and I'm happy to be able to pass that favor on.

    I LOVED both of these. Oh my gosh, I'd forgotten about The Dollhouse Murders! I guarantee that title/premise would not fly for the fourth grade crowd these days.

    Going down a rabbit hole here but there was a time when children read scary books because they enjoyed being scared and I'm not sure that's the case now as we find new ways to deflect actual feelings.

    That was the first Heinlein book I read too. Found out that some molecules can migrate through other materials (which is why rubber balloons filled with helium always deflate).

    Finally got around to picking up the Mistborn books. A few days later and I am already 3/4 of the way through the 1st book. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I loved The Black Stallion and all the sequels. I wore out my copies reading them over and over.
