Publisher's Summary

The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series, his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action and his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic wheel of time sequence.

But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story, building on the incredible success of The Alloy of Law. The new Mistborn books move the series into a richly imagined 19th-century analogue world with elements of the Wild West mixed with magic and science. It's a wonderful concoction from a master storyteller.

Sanderson has the knack of giving epic fantasy listeners exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre, and this novel will take him to the next level.

    Story
    "Best of Wax and Wayne"

    I've been binging on Mistborn recently and while I don't think these books are as good as the original trilogy, I have grown very attached to Wax, Wayne and the rest of the gang. I think this book is certainly the best of their adventures so far and I am very much looking forward to the fourth and final book (nice surprise as I thought this was the last). Keep doing what you do, Mr Sanderson!

    "Another Wax and Wayne hit"

    May the combination of Branson Sanderson and Michael kramer never end, without doubt the very best that audible can offer. As for the mistborn series, well it's the Mistborn what more needs saying, other than read them... all

    "Completely satisfying"

    What a joy to pick up another of Mr Sanderson's books and be completely satisfied!

    I love the characters in this story. Steris really comes into her own in this book, while Wayne continues to focus on his hats, and Wax still breaks things in spectacular fashion. I've always found these stories entertaining - there is a very gentle, but consistent thread of humour through it all, and I find myself wearing a little smile as I listen.

    It's a satisfying ending to this trilogy, but the ground work has been set for yet more adventure. A word from Brandon Sanderson as an appendix confirms this, and he intends to get to work on it once he's finished the final instalment of the Stormlight series. Looking forward to it!

    For Stormlight fans - watch out for Hoid who makes a very brief appearance.

    Narration is spot on, as always!

    "Best book so far in the Mistborn universe"

    I love all of Brandon Sanderson's books and particularly the Mistborn series however this book has surpassed all its predecessors! The characters have grown in each book but the relationships between them all in bands are brilliant. Wayne is potentially my favourite character of any book ever.

    Brandon has really started to bring Mistborn more into the wider Cosmere story with bands and really throws in some interesting twists. Please buy this book and enjoy the great narration by Michael Kramer who really brings the characters to life.

    Brandon is a genius, if only it wasn't so frustrating waiting to read what he comes out with next! Always worth the wait though.

    "Must-Read for Mistborn Fans!"

    This novel was great, as was the narrator.
    If you've read Sanderson's previous Mistborn books, you'll enjoy this, so dive in - it won't disappoint at all.
