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.

Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
What a fantastic finale to an amazing trilogy. I have become a fan of Sanderson, and can not wait to get to his next book! His depth of writing and breadth of characters is unparalleled. If you are a fan of Fantasy, this is the author for you!
As I read this series, especially this final book of the initial trilogy of the Mistborn series, I could not help but find some blatant ties to many basic tenants of the Christianity. I will not get into them specifically, because there would be some spoilers, but suffice it to say that they are there, and quite enjoyable. This is more than a good vs. evil story. It is more than a fantasy story. This is an epic series that will be cherished for generations to come. I can not wait to see where the Mistborn series goes after this.
Michael Kramer is a very, very good narrator. It took me most of the first book to get into his cadence and rhythm, but once I understood it and got into the groove, I grew to really enjoy him. Could not have been a better experience. Enjoy!
for me usually a Trilogy seems to Peter out by the end . not this series I love the direction it took was unexpected to me. and I love her narrator for this series he does a great job I would highly recommend this book and this series
The author of The Destined series, Fragment series, Mind Control series and many more to come.
From start to finish, from book one to book three, Mistborn was an enjoyment. I loved the Reckoners, but this was even better. Way better. And the narrator did a really good job.
--Sadly, the ending was lacking. Like it needed about 1-2 more chapters taking place about a few days later or something. I won't spoil it here though.
I was going to continue the series until I read the description closely. 300 years later? Really? Not going to tell us how Spook built society from ground up? Or what happened to the characters...
That nickpicking aside, this triology is one of the best. You'll get attached to the characters and the plot easily.
I loves this book. I couldn't stop listening to it, and it's so rare for such an amazing trilogy to have an equally awesome ending. i loved every moment.
this is how you do a great conclusion. there was enough for tje reader to guess what will happen next and yet always throws you for a loop. and like all great epics, prepare for a tear jerker of an ending.
