As Kelsier's protégé and slayer of the Lord Ruler she is now venerated by a budding new religion, a distinction that makes her intensely uncomfortable. Even more worrying, the mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbor a strange vaporous entity that haunts her.Stopping assassins may keep Vin's Mistborn skills sharp, but it's the least of her problems.
Luthadel, the largest city of the former empire, doesn't run itself, and Vin and the other members of Kelsier's crew, who lead the revolution, must learn a whole new set of practical and political skills to help. It certainly won't get easier with three armies - one of them composed of ferocious giants - now vying to conquer the city, and no sign of the Lord Ruler's hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal.
As the siege of Luthadel tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.

"All the explosive action any adventure fan could want." (Locus)
"A great epic fantasy.... Fans of Terry Goodkind and Terry Brooks will find The Well of Ascension fulfilling, satisfying, and incredibly exciting." (SFRevu.com)
"Vin's struggles with love and power inject the human element into Sanderson's engaging epic." (Booklist)
Real, human struggles set in an outstanding fantasy world, crafted together into something beautiful.
Michael Kramer creates a large cast of vastly different eerily realistic characters uniquely and really distinguishable. Truly a master at his craft down to the tiniest of inflections from the most challenging of characters.
I even told a coworker today that I had become aloof if books and stories that ended with abrupt fable-like endings. "if your ending isn't happy then you're just not done writing yet"
Thank You, Mr. Sanderson.
First of all this narrator is amazing once again! He has very specific voices for everyone and I know who is talking before he even says it! This book may be a tiny bit slower than the first one like other people said but it is still amazing!!!! It has an awesome twist at the end and I gasped multiple times! I finished it in just a couple of days! I am immediately buying the third book right now! if in doubt JUST READ THIS SERIES!
Another notch in Brandon Sanderson's belt for another epic book in an already great series, looking forward to more is an understatement.
I love how the characters continue to develop in their relationship towards each other and an understanding each of their own strengths and weaknesses. The story is great and how it keeps you anxiously reading or listening to see what happens next and to reveal the next mystery that always seems to be looming around the corner.
A great follow-up to book one and a great lead in the next book, which I am immediately going to start next.
The narration is fantastic, with great voices that seem to tell more about the characters they portray
a boy from norway 23 years old. listen to audiobooks beacause i i hate reading, but i love the storys that are written down.
wow, just wow... this series is the best. (exept kingkiller chronicles) i absolutly recomend all of the books, even the later books thats about what happens after the events in the main story. and not at least is it read by the one of my favorite narraters.
