Brandon Sanderson never disappoints. And neither does Michael Kramer. I became a fan of both listening to the Wheel of Time series. Then wanted to try out Sanderson's original work. Both Mistborn and Way of Kings are brilliant. Beautifully written, endearing engaging characters, clever intricate plots and magic systems, every bit as good as his Wheel of Time contributions and strikingly original. Keep going!
Totally loved this book. I loved the cleverness of posing a concept and forcing you to wait to discover the answers along with many of the characters in the book. Each twist and turn left you scrambling along with the character and even almost holding your breath to avoid missing the point of escape. Great story. Great narrator. Looking forward to the next book!
Workaholic who makes time for great books.
Excellent story, and Brandon Sanderson has such a gift with the different mechanics of magic. I knew of him and was a big from the end of The Hweel of time and then The Way of Kings, now I am a fanboy for all of his new releases. Dont move on to another before you give this one a chance.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy. I was ill for a while and had a hard time concentrating on reading. However, once I started the Final Empire, I was caught up in the Mistborn world. I highly recommend this series!
The only thing I didn't like about this book was the voice. At my house we call it "the farty voice" and it often lulled me to sleep. No audio book has ever done that, especially not one this exciting. The plot is awesome and I love how the author lets you learn about his world on your own rather than beating the rules into your head like so many other fantasy novels. A MILLION POINTS TO SANDERSON! These points are redeemable for respect.
Great beginning to what hopefully turns out to be an epic set of stories. Michael Kramer does an amazing performance as usual.
Captured me instantly and never let me go, without wanting more. Loving and well developed characters. Narrator stumbled a little at the very end, but otherwise depicted the story beautifully.
