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.

    "Caught Up In It"

    I just wanted to echo the other sentiments here. A wonderful story it was! I wished it wouldn't end but it must, and a nicely done ending it was. Thanks for taking me away from this reality, even if for a short time.

    "An amazing book!"

    If you have the time to listen to this long audio book then I very highly recommend it. This is a series which is well worth your time. It is well written, has a very interesting plot and is narrated superbly. As i said, if you like long audio books, you should definitely get this one.

    "Excellent Book!"

    This is an excellent book. I did not become aware of Brandon Sanderson until I read the Wheel of Time (WoT) series. After reading the last book in that series, I found out Robert Jordan passed away just when I finished reading the second to the last book (There was one more that was to be written - A memory of light). I researched and found that Brandon Sanderson was due to write the last book in the series. I wanted to find out what kind of a writer Sanderson was. The first book of his I read, Elantris, was excellent. I decided to try this series and found them just wonderful. The line I love from this series ( It sometimes repeats itself automatically in my mind, is "ash fell from the sky." If you have read this book, you understand what I mean. If you haven't, then hurry up and read it - you'll understand what I mean then.

    "A Most Satisfying Conclusion"

    It's very rare that a storyteller is able to plant so many seeds without you noticing, and then actually have them pay off in the end. Whatever you may have put up with in the first two books (which were great), absolutely contributes to a fantastic and satisfying ending in the final installment here.

    Great action, great use of the magic system. Wonderful peek into the history and lore of the world. This is more in line with the first book; Fast, action, dealing with the magic and world, overall plot. None of the stuff that made the second book boring is in this one.

    If you read the first one, I find it very difficult to believe you won't finish the trilogy. You won't be disappointing.

    Ultimately, the ending is satisfying. Unlike many books which kind of just stop at a certain point, this one builds up and delivers on an ending that was very much the intended end goal.

    "Full and compelling"

    Amazing books. I haven't read further but I'm constantly amazed how complete each one is, yet continuous. First book, full and complete. Second book, full and complete. Third epic, full and complete (except for one sentence near the end giving a possible task for the heroes)

    I didn't think I would be willing to read more than 3, but the author has done what few have the skill to do, so I'll award him with the benefit of doubt and keep going.

    "Well worth the time"

    Excellent ending to a worth while series. Things are explained with Sasid narrating the world's end, as Vin and Elend fight with all their might to save it. Spook, Tin Sune, and Sasid also play pivotal roles as they work to bid the Lord Ruler's words, unbeknownst to them Ruin is still manipulating events. I've grown close to these characters making the end more painful, but that's what makes a series worthwhile, when it's over, you feel you've lost friends.

    "What a Journey..."

    This book was truly a journey. I was gripped and fascinated throughout the entire piece. It had the right amount of twists and turns and was tidied up quite well in the end. I was personally quite pleased that I invested my time going through all three books in this season due to how gripping they were. All the characters seemed to have had their moment in the sun and each were developed well. I liked what the author did to Vin and Elland in this book. Their journey was well charted and the ending was quite fitting all in all. The ending twist that came even threw me a bit. All in all though I really enjoyed this book in it's entirety.

    Great story! Excellent Narration! 5 Star Experience!
