What I liked

Appropriately epic/heroic conclusion to a trilogy that didn't fill like it was just meandering into the next 'set'.

I really liked how the 'villain' of the first book was re-contextualised/understood. That was quite unique for this genre.

What I thought could have been better

Lot of moving parts at the end and the new villain was a bit to smug and 'before I kill you mister Bond allow me to tell you my whole plan so you can foil me at the last second'.

I think it would have been good to have the main characters suffer through the world-ending starvation bit more. They always seemed to have enough to eat and drink in the main.

Highlight

I think I liked the bit when Ruin revealed that they had all been setting up the pieces he wanted exactly they way he wanted esp. gathering the Kollos together ( )

It's been a year since the events at the Well of Ascension where Vin, thinking she was doing right, actually let Ruin free from prison. The mists and ashfall have gotten worse ever since and she, emperor Eland, and their friends are now traveling around the empire uncovering caches that the Lord Ruler had stashed in case just such an event occurred.

If you've enjoyed the first two Mistborn books, this third wrapping up the story will not disappoint. The stakes remain high, and the culmination of all their fighting and research is a fantastic payoff. I'll definitely be reading more by the author. ( )

Words cannot express the depth of emotion I felt when I finished this book.

There's nothing I can really say that others haven't said before me, but nothing else has made me feel like this before. Not with books. A stark, clear 10/10. ( )

10/10 stars. What a fantastic conclusion to this amazing trilogy. ( )
  curiouskt | Jul 25, 2022 |
This was a satisfying end to a entertaining and thought provoking series. What I appreciated most about this book is how tightly integrated everything was. Things that would have seemed like nothing more than plot devices in some novels were compelling because the groundwork had been laid earlier, often with small hints as early as the first book.

I highly recommend the trilogy. ( )

Sanderson's conclusion to the epic that began with Mistborn and continued in Well of Ascension resonates with all the elements of classic heroic fantasy, along with unusual forms of magic and strong, believable characters.

Sanderson pulls loose ends together, explains vague prophecies, and produces the Hero of Ages, and the Mistborn trilogy concludes satisfactorily.
added by Katya0133 | editBooklist, Regina Schroeder (Oct 1, 2008)
 
Sanderson's saga of consequences offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith and responsibility.
