My first foray into fantasy in many years and it did not disappoint. Good stuff Maynard.
This is better than anything I've read or listened to before. By this, I mean the Mistborn series. I'll invest in first edition signed copies as a profession of my love for this work of literature. Michael Kramer did a good job on the first two books but I think his audio studio was of lesser quality on the third book. Things sounded more muffled. Superb ending.
My mind was blown as I finished the trilogy. I had to go back and reread the last many chapters so I could fully grasp all the nuances of it. What an awesome book! Brandon Sanderson was able to pull it all together somehow. At some point in the middle of the book, I thought I would never understand it. He did a fine job of explaining it. Once again it was pretty bloody with lots of violence and killing. No sex though and only rarely a bit of swearing. I had so many questions and they all were answered. Somehow he tied it altogether and made it work. I guess I'm going to need to start the second trilogy.
Inspiring, entertaining, magical
I've never heard or read anything like this , truly a unique find in my humble opinion.
He brings the characters to life I can visualize them very easily.
books just don't get any better than this. the epic story builds from the story of a small girl to one of God's and fates and shifting planets. the narration is some of the best I've ever heard, it's clear and consistent throughout the series.
The story stretched on and on once again. The ending was weird and not that great. The story had potential but I think it went in the wrong direction and got lost along the way.
Yes, the steelheart series is amazing!
