Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Fantastic ending to an amazing series"

    The books get better and better as they go on and this one was my favorite. It brings the whole story together so well and has layer upon layer of twists, plot, and character development. The Mistborn series has easily earned a place in my favorite books and I can't wait to read other books from the author and listen to the narrator. Thank you for the wonderful story, Brandon Sanderson!

    "Best end to a trilogy ever!"

    Sanderson's storytelling is superb even at this earlier stage of his career. The performance of this book was one of the best I've ever heard and brought the story to life so vividly that I had a stronger emotional response than one would expect watching a great movie!

    "Beautifully crafted tale"

    The Mistborn trilogy was an exceptional experience. My only complaint is occasionally repetitive description in a few scenes. Overall, the joy and excitement of the story outweighs these minor faults. I hope you enjoy it as I did!

    "Small spoilers "

    well I couldnt get enough, again. I enjoyed the world that Sanderson has created in this trilogy so much that I must highly recommend these books to anyone. my only struggle is with the direction it ended up going with religion or belief as I am not that into books with high religion aspect to them. It is definitely worth reading, because Sanderson can just take you to another place with his writing.

    "I wept tears of joy at the shear brilliance of it"

    I like to listen as I work. I couldn't do that with this because of how wrapped up in the story.

    "Maybe I'm too critical"

    The narrator who was brilliant in the past seemed to phone this one in a bit. Many loose ends were tied but not all of them. And the mysteries that spanned the entirety of the series ended up having rather mundane explanations. The second book was great, the finale disappointed me a bit.
