Rob lives by the maxim that there's no such thing as over. And something's certainly not over for him. An unknown, unseen enemy is stalking him, with tragic consequences for his son and ex-wife. As Rob and Mike close ranks to protect their families, they find themselves up against industrial espionage, two warring scientists, and a blood feud that won't end until somebody pays with their life. Their best hope of putting the past to rest forever could lie in the unique genetic skills of a runaway teenager.

The story really was good. But I have been waiting for a super hero. But got corporate secrets instead. Still waiting on the super worrier story.

The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books.

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.

The same can be said of this book as the rest of the series. It is a rich world with it's own mythology, twists and turns, clues and mystery, wars of good and evil. But best of all there is always a payoff. There is is always a clue left that will return so clear and bright that you wonder how you misted it. There is no better payoff in a book than the moment when the writer brings the world back into focus right in front of you!

The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.
