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.

It was clever and not quite what I expected. Was expecting more of a twist, but overall great ending to the series.
I loved the first two books. with that being said, I really didnt like the 3rd as much. the story felt like I was walking through quicksand. the characters voices sounded WAY different and even their mannerisms seems quite different. you could say that the 3rd book were a couple of years after the 2nd and people change. but they almost felt like completely different characters. L was completely different. but towards the end of the story it did reel me back in and the ending itself was great! and touching. still a great read just not as good as the first two I'd say.
Looking for what to read after Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and all of Brandon Mull's books I found this series....and in doing so found what is at LEAST a tie for first place among the absolute best fantasy reads my mind could ever dream of having the pleasure of reading/listening!!! Each book gets amazingly better, and that's saying something since the first book is utterly FANTASTIC!
Good stuff man l l l s d s d d d d d d d f f f f f d f f
As fantasy goes, this is some of the best. Especially with character and plot surprise. To say more is spoiling it. Go and listen!!!?? Harry Potter quality audio performance! Sweet!!!
Brandon Sanderson has done it again! This trilogy morphed from the story of a small thieving crew to a battle of gods. Excellent story telling and imagery. I have listened to the trilogy twice now, and loved it more the second time! Michael Kramer's narration is spot on and easy to listen to. Highly entertaining and enjoyable.
