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.

Well-developed characters facing tough situations. World-building to rival Tolkien. No bad language or sex scenes to make you cringe when you realize your listen is being overheard.
The reader is very slow paced, speed it up for the best listening.
The book itself is great but not a good stand alone. Read the trilogy for the full experience.
Just as good as the first but a little bit deeper too! Characters develop in ways I didn't foresee and the twist at the end was devastating! In an era of fantasy series that are shallow and predictable this series stands out with the creation of a remarkable world full of history, mythology, politics, and believable characters. Can't wait for the 3rd!
sometimes I find myself holding my breath! this book can get intense! dreading finishing the series because I don't know what I will read mect#
A book that demand you to binge read just like the first. Great writing, unique story, unique characters and intriguing world. I love getting lost in this trilogy and can't wait to jump to the next book. Must listen.
