I felt like the trilogy was uneven, I liked some parts of it much more than others. The idea of swallowing metal and then "burning" it in your stomach to do magic seems silly to me, but I love everything else about the magic in these books.

The ending wasn't horrible, but is wan't very satisfying either and it was rather abrupt.

The concept of advancing the world through a modern times setting and into a sci-fi future one is interesting. I'll give them a try. ( )

The Mistborn trilogy is phenomenal! I was hooked on Sanderson as I read the last three books of Robert Jordan's wheel of Time - his storytelling and writing is better than Jordan's in my view, though that doesn't take away from an incredible and, at the time, unique series.

I've now read everything Sanderson has written - except for the Alcatraz series - and I'm an unashamed fan. :) ( )

I only read Mistborn (the first book) so far. The story is very well written, and original. Things you couldn't have imagined ;). the characters are well worked out, well the main characters. ( )
