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.

All the pieces come together in the Hero of Ages. Things hinted at in the first and second book come to a satisfying end. I am impressed with Sanderson's ability to reveal bit by bit all the things you were questioning and he does it in a way that does not feel rushed. This was a great series!
I enjoyed this book a little less than I did the first two, but it was still great. I had wished for a more solid ending.
I love Sanderson, and this book was creative and insightful. I gave only slightly less than perfect because Way of Kings has set the bar for Sanderson's writings, and although this was great, it's not quite his best. I still enjoyed the story and I really love this Narrator! He really brings a story to life!
I enjoyed all three of the books very much in this series :)
I had read a review that said the second one was slow but they were all filled with clues to build upon the ending. Great job!
