Tricked into releasing the evil spirit Ruin while attempting to close the Well of Ascension, new emperor Elend Venture and his wife, the assassin Vin, are now hard-pressed to save the world.This adventure brings the Mistborn epic fantasy trilogy to a dramatic and surprising climax as Sanderson's saga offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith and responsibility.

I have no words to describe it. You have to experience it yourself. Read from the beginning whenever that was. I don't know how many books there really are because I think I bought all of them at one go..... Just frigging read it, listen it it whatever..... I couldn't stop not listening to it and now it's ended. I hope there's another one, now I'm gonna go and search for the next.... Preservation owes me that much

A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields. But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt.

Okay, so maybe I've been living in the woods too long, where you can't even get a decent cup of klava first thing in the morning. So who should turn up but Lady Teldra, the courtly servant of my old friend the Dragonlord Morrolan? Teldra wants my help, because Morrolan and Aliera have disappeared, and according to Sethra Lavode, it looks like they may be in the hands of the Jenoine. Do I want to mess with them? The guys who made this place? And I thought I had problems before...Oh well, what's a little cosmic battle?

This was the first book I had read of Taltos series and I immediately fell in love with the series. This is the only series where I have read the novels again and again every time a new novel came, and I have read this particular novel so many times and I've enjoyed it every time and every time I found another nugget of information that I enjoyed, yup! Every time, every time except when I heard it on Audible.

I was excited to buy it and hear it, it couldn't have downloaded fast enough. But the narrator totally screwed this up. OH MY GOD! Horrible horrible marathon. The novel is so fast paced and narrator totally didn't get it. Sethra and Aliera, in fact all the women sound the same and they talk in such sonorous voice that you just fall asleep, which probably saved the narrator otherwise he should have been punched already by many people

Do buy the book, it's awesome. But I can't recommend buying it on audible until unless the narrator is changed

The complete, unabridged audiobook of A Game of Thrones. HBO’s hit series A Game of Thrones is based on George R. R. Martin’s internationally best-selling series A Song of Ice and Fire, the greatest fantasy epic of the modern age. A Game of Thrones is the first volume in the series. Summers span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

The book is great, we all know that. I bought the hard copy but couldn't go past the first few pages. It was confusing with so many characters. Bought it on audible. My compliments to the narrator, who brought the characters to life. I think I might even look for other books by the narrator, He's so good. Kudos buddy. I hope this reaches you. Loved it.
