Over Christmas I was determined to finally read the Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I almost made it before life got crazy again with the new year. So this weekend I'm going to finish reading Hero of Ages, the third and final book in the set. Can't wait to see how everything gets resolved.
Who is the Hero of Ages?
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!
The conclusion of the Mistborn trilogy
fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound,
connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and
surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks
to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for
originality and audacity that will leave readers rubbing their eyes in
wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.
