    The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

    Robert says: "It keeps getting even better"
    "Nice second book"
    Overall

    interesting read, lots of twists and turns, and Brandon is a little wordy and slow in spots, but a good book. The foreshadowing in this one makes me wonder about the big finish.

    For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison.

    Aaron Brown says: "Unique Magic system, good plot twists."
    "Great first book,"
    Overall

    nice way to start a trilogy! cant wait for book #2

    The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave listeners shaking their heads in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

    Julio says: "Well concluded!"
    "Intersting subject"
    Overall

    Wasn't sure what to expect, but quickly was entranced by the book. All of Brandon's books have a tendency to get slow and "wordy" in spots, as he chases details a little too much, but as always he ties these details into the story. Worth the price, ready to go on to #2!

    For an overpopulated Earth, whose resources are strained to the breaking point, there is only one place to look for relief: straight up. With the successful completion of the Padrugoi Space Station, humanity has at last achieved its first large-scale permanent presence in space. Additional bases are feverishly being built on the Moon and on Mars, stepping-stones to the greatest adventure in all history.

    Overall

    if you like the other two books in the series, you will love the last installment. As always, Anne McCaffrey does an excellent job of "putting you right in the story" good read!

    Kris Longknife had no choice about growing up rich and pampered. When she did have a choice, she joined the Marines. But now, a friend needs help halfway across the galaxy - and with a military heritage coursing through her blood, it's time for Kris Longknife to be a hero.

    Though this book was predictable, it was well written. As with most sequels to a fiction book, lots of bread crumbs were dropped in this one to steer you to the next book in the series. a pleasant read.

    Kris Longknife is back - and ready for battle. Kris has been given her first independent command in the very remote system of Chance, an assignment that's as much exile as promotion. But Kris isn't on the job long when she captures pirates hiding the location of an uncharted and unpopulated planet of miraculous technology.

    Lydia says: "love this series"
    "not as much filler"
    Overall

    The series had become real formalistic, and continues this trend in this book. However, the twists and turns in this were entertaining.

She's been raised only to be beautiful and marry well. But the heritage of the military Longknifes courses through Kris' blood - and, against her parents' objections, she enlists in the Marines.
