Who is the Hero of Ages?
To end the Final Empire and restore freedom, Vin killed the Lord Ruler. But as a result, the Deepness - the lethal form of the ubiquitous mists - is back, along with increasingly heavy ashfalls and ever more powerful earthquakes. Humanity appears to be doomed.
Having escaped death at the climax of The Well of Ascension only by becoming a Mistborn himself, Emperor Elend Venture hopes to find clues left behind by the Lord Ruler that will allow him to save the world. Vin is consumed with guilt at having been tricked into releasing the mystic force known as Ruin from the Well. Ruin wants to end the world, and its near omniscience and ability to warp reality make stopping it seem impossible. She can't even discuss it with Elend, lest Ruin learn their plans!
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.

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!
No, While the Vin scenes were enthralling. Most of the book kind of Drags. A lot of the history and lore of this series just felt boring to me.

I listened to the whole series. I don't regret it but it certainly isn't one of my favorites.
