This is an epic fantasy audio book that I would recommend anyone and everyone listen to and read. The 3rd part of a 3 part series nicely finishes up with piecing all of the puzzle together. The Mistborn trilogy is definitely in my top 3 series.
This whole series really kept me wanting more. "The Hero of Ages" was an excellent way to end the series. I really love the way the characters were developed. A couple slow areas, but overall I loved it.
The series "The Hero of Ages" belongs to is very excellent. It's like how a brick building is made, starting with a strong foundation and with all the pieces needed to form the structure. Just like how this series is. The reader who has by now become totally invested in the characters will be in store for surprises, intrigue and revelations.
'Read' this book!
In this third book of the series Sanderson takes us on the most enjoyable ride yet of the trilogy. It is a fitting conclusion to an epic tale I truly wish we could come back to. I hope his new book, "Warbreaker," comes to Audible soon.
The entire series was amazing. I really enjoyed every minute of it and highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys fantasy books. The author is my new favorite and the narrator was one of the best I have listened too.
As much as I hate never ending series, I will miss this one. However, I think it was best to end it at 3 books as most that continue past the basic plot usually end up dragging out book after book with no real purpose.
I simply can't wait to see what is next by Brandon. He is truly a talented story teller.
The Hero of Ages is the culmination of the Mistborn trilogy and doesn't fail to complete one of the most creative story lines of all the genre.
Brandon Sanderson shows his skill in character and plot creation and skillfully keeps the interest of the listener through action interspersed throughout the story.
Michael Kramer's narration adds to the Hero of Ages audio book and in my opinion is one of the best values through Audible.
I would puchase and listen to this trilogy again. Sanderson has some original ideas and his characters are interesting. That said this is another example of material that would have made one great book stretched over three. Where are the editors who are supposed to rein in these authors?
After listening to this trilogy of audio books, it can be no surprise that Sanderson was the author picked to wrap up the late Robert Jordan's everlasting Wheel of Time series that moves two steps backwards for every step forward in plot.
The first of the three books took me about ten hours to really get into the storyline. The author is so detail oriented which I've enjoyed in his other books, but this series is NOT even coming close to par.
The second book I made myself listen to and thought it was okay. If I start a series I like to finish it so I know how it ends.
This is the third book and two hours from the end I could care less if I finish. In fact I've gone over a month and haven't listened to it. Finally to finish it up, I've set my ipod audiobook speed on fast so I can at least hear how it ends.
Long. Drawn out. Boring. Very disappointing.
