Audio Book Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

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!

    I wonder if there could've been an ending more perfect to this perfect ending to this trilogy's end?

    Every time I see the cover of this novel, a myriad of emotions hit me like a wave, throwing me into an unavoidable state of reflection. This volume of the Mistborn trilogy is the grand cherry on top. The transition from The Well Of Ascension to The Hero of Ages was executed perfectly and thoughtfully, helping the reader/listener to catch up on the important details. The narration is as seamless as the writing. If you have made it this far, it would be a grievous mistake to leave the events of this book to the unknown; you have no excuse. I am 29 years of age at the writing of this review, and yet I know that I will look back at this period of my life with the Mistborn series being the focal point.

    Sanderson has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Books 1 thru 3 are truly amazing. Hero of Ages was the perfect conclusion. I haven\'t read books 4 thru 6 yet. I\'m not sure how he can improve upon the first trilogy.

    The author asked me not to say this. But, darn it, its my review and I mean it! I love this series. It is the greatest series ever written. Period. No really though, I throughly enjoyed this entire series which was non stop awesome all the way through. Fitting conclusion to a series that kept me guessing until the end.

    Out of all three books in this trilogy, this one was the most harrowing and difficult to get through, however the reward of the conclusion is somehow even sweeter for it. Sanderson is simply brilliant, tying together even the tiniest threads with creative expertise. He's truly one of the best fantasy writers of our time.
