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.

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.

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.

    Great book! Great Narrator! Voices really make the book come even more alive. Was glued to this book from beginning to end despite "slow" parts in middle. The author really knows how to keep your attention through the ENTIRE book. Already listening to Hero of Ages now.

    I feel like this continues with my feelings towards the first book of the trilogy. The setting and world building is amazing. Some aspects of the story will really draw you in. Everything else is completely over rated IMO. Characters are Flanderized, they dont make gradual changes over time, so much as its usually them having a conversation with someone, and they suddenly realize why they should have been chaning with certain events from previous chapters. In this book the rough and tough theives are sudenly good and are in politics, but there was never a real change in them so much as its the next book so now theyre different.Vin went from being a "not like other girls" character, to accepting her feminine side, to all of the sudden rejecting it as if that progression never happened. Honesty, I think I am gonna take a break, go through another book, and in a week or so, see if I feel like going through the third book. There are things I am intereest in finding out, but the characters and certain story aspects just leave me wishing for more.
