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.

    "Always an adventure!"

    I love Michael Kramer's talent--he truly takes me on Sanderson's journey everything's. I get so lost in the story I find myself listening for hours on end, taking the adventure with me on hikes and helping me through the dishes. More, phase!!!

    "The best of the three"

    Loved the surprise ending. Great way to close the trilogy! Well done! This could be a fantastic movie, equal to or greater than Star Wars or Lord of the Rings if acted and directed right. Great narration also, love his voices for the characters. A trilogy to not soon forget I think!

    "Perhaps the best Fantasy trilogy ever!"

    Narration, story, are perfect! As a fan of science fiction and fantasy for over 35 years this was one of the most entertaining trilogies I've ever listen to or read.

    "Best-Bad Ending :'("

    This series was one of those that tied you to the characters and you were sad (lump in you throat kind of sad) when it ended. The story telling was awesome and the voice was very flexible in creating unique voices for everyone.

    I loved this series so much I'll have to keep reading the Alloy of Law to see if there are more things to learn about Vin, Elland and the crew.

    "Awesome!"
    Any additional comments?

    I gave the title "Awesome!" for my review of all 3 books of the trilogy, because, well...it was awesome! I really enjoyed it. There were times in this last book that the conclusion felt rushed by the author. Like he realized he needed to wrap it up, but wasn't ready to, but did it anyways. However, it was captivating enough to not matter. Some people complained that this book had too many feelings going on. Very lovey dovey. I do not like lovey dovey, so I was worried, however, I think it really works here. If you read the whole series, you care enough about the characters to go with it. It was action packed and really keeps your attention. It is a must read.

    If you manage to make it this far into getting this book I highly recommend reading it it is every bit as satisfying a conclusion to the story that you can hope for
