What starts out as your typical heist story with a new gal brought in as the apprentice to a well known and successful thief and lovable rogue turns into an epic story of learning to trust, breaking preconceptions, and learning to fight for something more then what your base desires are. I was highly impressed with this story after reading Brandon's works on the Wheel of time as well as The Way of Kings and look forward to reading more from him int he future.
I enjoyed this audio book. It is set in a unique world, and contains unique characters. The main character is not a perfect flawless person, which adds depth to her persona. Listening to this in the car to and from work made for a very enjoyable ride. This is definitely worth listening to!
I normally do not read this type of book, but took a chance at the insistence of a friend. It iwas worth it. This is a detailed and entertaining story with very real characters and a terrific plot. Well worth a credit. I will be reading Book 2 in the series.
Having been exposed to Terry Brooks i wanted to find an author that had the same Elves, Dwarfs, and Wizards. By chance i stumbled upon this Trilogy. Brandon took all i new of magic and Good versus Evil and completely turned it upside down. Who would have thought that for 1000 years Evil had one out yet the Lord Ruler was really working on behalf of all mankind in the long run. I was completely impressed as the Trilogy kept me in suspense for nearly 75 hours as i learned of new magical powers in Alamancy and new Mythical creatures created by Brandon Sanderson. As for the Narrator his ability to change his voice to give each Character there own voice was amazing Michael was wonderful and a pleasure to listen to
I am so glad to have found Brandon Sanderson. This Trillogy is well written and kept my rapt attention. Mr. Kramer's reading brings the story to life

A rich story with multiple characters can be ruined in the hands of amateurs. With an expert narrator, Mistborn takes wing and multiple characters can come in and out of the story with little confusion or need to rewind.
This is a story about a rebellion by an underclass that has been in servitude for centuries. The ruling class holds the power and the magic.
I am stuck on Fiction especially Fantasy, and this book is hands down one of the best I've ever read. From start to finish this book kept me on the edge of my seat and loving it! Sanderson deserves a crown after this.
I've listened through about 12 books and this one is so far the best. I loved every moment of it. If you like fantasy - this is one of the best books I've listened to so far. Even LOTR didn't capture my interest as much as Mistborn. I will definitely continue buying the Mistborn series.
As an on-and-off again fantasy reader, I am pretty particular about my books. This audiobook hooked me from the beginning and really, throughout the series never let up. Even the ending was fantastic. Aside from tension, the series was incredibly creative and mixed a fair bit of religion and philosophy into the story to deepen the plot. It was a fantastic series!
