    Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world....

    I haven't listened to other books by Brandon Sanderson, but I've read most, including the Mistborn trilogy. I felt that this book really lacked something, it wasn't as gripping as the trilogy. I wouldn't say it was bad, but it felt somehow slower. I did enjoy some of the references towards characters and events in the earlier books, and I felt towards the end they left room for future development. The narration by Michael Kramer was enjoyable, and I think he helped bring some life to it. All in all, if you haven't read the original Mistborn trilogy, you'll want to dive into those first before taking this one on.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nick Podehl is by far my favorite narrator thus far, he brought the characters to life and was a pleasure to listen to.

    I came across this book on a lark. Having finished up The Wheel of Time and Mistborn series, I was looking for another epic universe to entrance me. I looked at a few reviews, and decided to give this series - The Kingkiller Chronicles - a try. I had trepidations at first, but between the calming and hypnotic narration style of Podehl, and the intricately gripping storyline by the author, it didn't take long to get hooked. I've read the first two books in the series and am eagerly awaiting the next entry. If you like solid fantasy, you won't be disappointed with this series.
