What a unique storyline! Sanderson creates a world totally unlike any fantasy series I've read so far. I just came off the Wheel of Time series (which I hear Sanderson will be completing, rest in peace Robert Jordan).
I'm excited to complete this series and see where Sanderson takes WOT!
I was surprised how much I liked this. Michael Kramer is, as always, brilliant as a narrator. The characters were likable and distinct. Very well crafted bit of non-standard fantasy fiction. I really appreciated that the story line was not a cardboard cut-out of every other fantasy novel out there. Looking forward to the next two in the series.
This is another great Sanderson book. After listening to Elantris I decided to pick up this series, they kept me engaged from beginning to end.
Hi Really enjoyed this series. It kept me entertained and the author pulled me into the characters. Both my husband and I enjoyed it! I recommend it.
Being my first fantasy genre book I was sceptical at first. But once I got into the first few chapters I enjoyed it. I was entertained from begining to end.
I've been looking for a good fantasy book for years. Last I read that I thought was good was George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire. Since then I've been confronted with so much cliche and inanity that I've almost stopped reading fantasy. Then along comes The Final Empire: Mistborn. This was a good book. Very interesting. Cool and unique magic laws. Intelligent characters. I'm looking forward to Book 2.
As an avid devourer of sci-fi/fantasy, this author has truly come up with an original idea that is wrapped in intrigue and clever plots! Being unable to guess the ending has been fantastic. Having a great narrator has added the icing to the cake. Well done! Book 2 was even better than book 1 and book 3 blew them all away.
