Once, a hero arose to save the world. A young man with a mysterious heritage courageously challenged the darkness that strangled the land.
a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist
ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has
Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to
dream of ending the empire and even the Lord Ruler himself. A new kind
of uprising is being planned, one built around the ultimate caper, one
that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the
determination of an unlikely heroine, a street urchin who must learn to
master Allomancy, the power of a Mistborn @goodreads
I'm sitting here in shock after reading this book. I have to admit that I
cried, I didn't see that ending coming. Brandon Sanderson has done it
again. This is only my second book I have read of his and they both have
blown me away.
I loved all of the "good" characters in the
book. Each one of them have an endearing quality. My favorites being
Kell, Vin and Sazed. It took me a little bit to understand the
Allomancy, but it finally started to make sense and there is a little
chart in the back of the book that helps out with that :)
(Kell) is a Mistborn and getting an army together to try to take down
the Lord Ruler who is the ultimate jerk!! He finds Vin and brings her
into his fold. She has no idea she is a Mistborn and she ends up being
so much more than that! I love that he took her under his wing and
taught her so many things. She caught on very quickly but this is
because of what all she really is...no spoiler!
Kell has such a
wonderful team. I love them all. There are several that have powers
themselves. I really think this story is great at having all of these
characters with different things they can do. They all stand out very
clearly and the friendship between this team is the best.
book is full of evil beings, strange beings, war, senseless torture and
killings, and the good people trying to make a difference.
still at a loss for a lot of words because of what happens and the
feelings that are put into the book. All I can say is I look forward to
reading many more Sanderson books!!!
