Ey was most possibly the most rewarding journey I ve ever been on in the iterary world I thrive onWhen a novel really makes me feel it becomes dear and precious to me than any other book It shines brighter dark as the tale may be tearful as it may make me But that is what readers are The Trust looking for A story that speaks to their heart and soul pours emotion into them making them feel everything the characters are feeling andingers well after the A Scandalous Regency Christmas last page And this is what I treasure Any novel that can do this to me even though it may not be the best written or executed is one to be cherished dearly This novel stands out though Not only does it make you feel deeply it has outstanding world building an incredible cast of characters that youove dearly and a brilliant execution of a story that The Return leaves you in breathless aweI knew this series wasn t all happy endings and rainbows andight It is a terrible dying world with an unknown force beating upon it Horrible ramifications will happen there is no escaping them There is no hope of creating a happily ever after for everyone and creating a world anew without some type of destruction and oss People die thousands of people People you care about My heart was torn out and trampled on And it s still trying to put itself together again This is a dark tale Sanderson doesn t paint it ight He shows you what becomes of a world destroyed what happens after its thousand years of relentless abuse But even then even through all those dark moments there are moments of Prince Hafizs Only Vice light ofove and joy and Aristotle and Poetic Justice laughter And hope Faith and hope I believe is the core of the novel what makes all the characters press onward in hopes of a brighter future The mists the darkness are ever pressing on them but they never give up hope They never stop believing that all could be well if they but fight to secure itI can t write this review and not talk about the characters I can t talk specifically about what they did that Ioved or their personal thoughts and journey And Bid Him Sing: A Biography of Countée Cullen lest I spoil the book But I can say that I adore these people with every fiber of my being They are not just characters moving a story forward theyive and breathe and are REAL When they were in pain I was in pain When something terrible happened to someone I Bachelors and Bunnies: The Sexual Politics of Playboy loved I cried my heart raging inside aching and furious at what was happening But oh how wonderful they are how glorious their stalwartness andove and self discovery over the course of their Cyberwar: The Next Threat to National Security What to Do About It lives One such person whom Iove and respect and praise was Sazed Dear Sazed Your soul searching uest was perhaps the most riveting and saddening I ached watching you despair and Girl in Pieces lose your hope that you had held onto the whole of yourife until something devastating sent your doubts flying your faith failing But it all paid off Everything you Battleground Chicago: The Police and the 1968 Democratic National Convention learned discovered about yourife s devotion of studying religions Therein was the faith you needed you just had to ook at them with a new ight a different perspective And I Bridging Liberalism and Multiculturalism in American Education loved what you became It was so perfect for you and made my soul soar with happiness And then Vin and Elend Their characters were brilliant Their outcome their destiny jaw dropping and I cannot say on them You need to discover this on your own You will come toove them and you will ache deeply when terrible things happen to them But the pain is not all for naught You have to feel pain for them to connect you to them to make them real to make the story and their characters believable and entrancing The ending was heartbreaking but so perfect it couldn t shouldn t have happened any other way And even though thinking that disheartens me it was remarkable in its execution and ended with a perfect brush of the ight and new found joy a perfect brush of the ight and new found joy I was so desperate to find With the ever present mist and ash and red sunlight I yearned for the characters to find their blue sky and yellow sun and green grass They never knew of those things With a thousand years of red sky and brown Cruise Control landscape such things were preposterousaughable Vin believed in it though because Kelsier did And this vague image of a better brighter ively world full of color brought them a measure of hope and desire that fueled them in their desperate actions to find this better world where Inuisitors and Ruin cannot abound and where peace and ight reignOne City Limits last character whom I thought was brilliantly crafted even so after his death was The Lord Ruler I never could have imagined his role in the story his true intentions that were misunderstood by those seeking to overthrow him Sanderson created the most unbelievably cruel good villian He is not what he seems and is only a pawn of something even devious and cunning and ruthless than he ever could be The whole plot how everything came together the realization of what certain things meant was utterly brilliant It s mindboggling to think that someone could concoct such a story such a world being so attentive to every singleittle ast detail that is essential in making the world work and have no problems in its making and telling Sanderson is a mastermind genius I could never be as superb as he is but I hope I could be half or a fourth or a hundredth so brilliant with storytelling and drawing people inI almost forgot Spook Erica what are you thinking Ah Spook you captured my heart You became the man I was hoping you would be You never lost yourself but you became so much And I oved it I oved your growth and yourself but you became so much And I oved it I Culture and Enchantment loved your growth and you had and strength You with Elend and Sazed are my heroI sincerely urge you plead you to read the Mistborn Trilogy It is so outstanding and perfect and thrilling you will find you cannot stay away from the world once you enter and will dreadeaving it What truly is amazing than these books Though I have read them just this year and there are still thousands of books out there to read I have a feeling I will not find another read brilliant And though I don t read much epic fantasy which I think will change soon I believe the Mistborn trilogy stands out in this genre and is than worth reading and oving They have become my favorite books ever nothing I ve read comes even close And this is why I wish everyone on earth would read these books I will recommend it to everyone I can When I ove a book so deeply And Desperately I Can T Not Tell desperately I can t not tell of its brilliance and that they MUST read it And you must You must if you want a book that arrests you completely and D DAY Through German Eyes 2 leaves you with such deep emotion andove and wanting I can t praise these books enough and I hope I have been able to sway you to read them You will not regret it trust me I am unfortunately the Hero of Ages Books Baroque Personae like this are the reason I am so harsh on shitty books is all i have to say

As I finish this trilogy I feel Did the Greeks Believe in Their Myths? like addressing this book on twoevels first on its own strengths and weaknesses as a novel and second as the capstone of the series and as an exposition of the Mistborn world and mythology I l start with the atter of the twoThe overwhelming impression I get from the Mistborn books is that they have been written by someone who is a fantasy fan first a fantasy author second A pedantic geek if you will And I mean all of this as the highest praise Sanderson clearly has a fanboy s Codependent Forevermore: The Invention of Self in a Twelve Step Group love of internal consistency and distaste for discontinuity and is writing the kind of books that he wouldike to read In essence he is both the author and the slightly Aspergian fan at the fantasy convention asking that author some annoyingly penetrating uestions This is a man with a proper appreciation for words Conscience and Memory: Meditations in a Museum of the Holocaust like canon and retconBecause of these ualities Sanderson is without a doubt the most consistent airtight world builder I have ever read As the series builds slowly revealing and of the world the various types of magic and the overarching mythology everything snaps into place perfectly And what s it becomes obvious that everything has been perfectlyaid out behind the scenes from the very start Completely absent is any feeling that the author was making things up as he went along I never once found myself having that Sure Luke and Leia were always supposed to be siblings George feeling nor even that You know Jo when Hagrid got out of Azkaban prison at the end of your second book he acted as though it was no big deal feelingAnd this is great for me because I m a pedantic geek myself when I read fantasy and sci fi it s naturally difficult for me to suspend disbelief and I m constantly m This was the most perfect series finale I can remember reading I cannot I just A review will be on my channel when I can form words See this review and Conscience and Memory like it on wwwbookbastionnetI ve been avoiding writing this review for a week or so now both because I know it s going to be difficult to write and difficult to share what I recognize is an unpopular opinion We all can agree that Brandon Sanderson is magic I can t even bring myself to finish one work in progress yet he s constantly in the middle of multiple projects at the same time and is slowly building a greater shared universe for his novels that will probably one day eual the book euivalent of Marvel and DC s own universes of heroes I also recognize that he has slowly and deservedly amassed a very vocal fanbase who absolutely adore the way he writes and the stories he tellsAlso I can t argue against his creativity I ve read 4 books by Sanderson at this point this series and The Way of Kings and each has managed to surprise me and astound me in the way Sanderson showcases his ability to craft worlds that feel real alive and full of history His magic systems are wildly creative and well thought out and are exactly what the best of fantasy should be So why didn t Iove this book Maybe this was a case of too much of a good thing Yes the worldbuilding and magic is creative but the amount of information Sanderson packs into this trilogy was than a Pansy Vol. 6 little bit exhausting especially when reading all three books pretty much in a row I think if I had put a year between reading each book I might have enjoyed it aittle bit because if I m being totally honest Brandon Sanderson has a habit of over delivering information that drives me crazySanderson opens each chapter in all 3 books with italicized passages that are essentially his worldbuilding notes In books 1 and 2 I didn t so much mind them as they directly connect to research Sazed and Vin were conducting over the course of the story In this book they re straight up infodumps pertaining to a new magic system that he clearly couldn t find another way to work into the storyI was Edible Memory: The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Foods left wondering what the point of all this information was andike an english major taking a math course wondering why I needed to know it Each chapter starts with a character performing a simple action Vin Pushing and Pulling herself through the mists Sazed arriving at a town Spook or another ancillary character entering a building This sets the scene for action the characters will get to eventuallyThe characters endlessly ruminate over past events in what I became certain was an attempt to pad the page count to ensure each of these books reached epic proportions If you take out all of the pointless trips down memory ane this 700 page book could have achieved pointless trips down memory ane this 700 page book could have achieved same ends in probably 300 pages Vin s inner monologue was still revisiting when she first met Kelsier or when she dressed as Valette in numerous chapters and those events happened over 5 years ago in book timeElend s inner monologue reminds us constantly that he used to be a scholar and is now a king Oh and in
Case You Ve Forgotten Whatyou ve forgotten what does what it s repeated basically in every chapter too You seriously could play a drinking game based on the repeated information alone though I hope you have a hearty Education in a New Society liver and an ability to hold your alcohol if you tryThe story finally creeps forward in slowly increasing steps until the final 20% of the book or so when Sanderson abandons the earlier slow pace in favor of a frenetic end If I was rating this book on theast chunk of the story it would get all the stars The ending was spectacular and appropriately epic for fantasy However a novel is a sum of its parts and there s about 500 pages in this book that I had hoped to enjoy a Education in a New Society: Renewing the Sociology of Education lot than I did Also I m just going to say it Elend and Vin are boring They re boring characters They re an even boring couple They re too powerful when they re together and Sanderson doesn t so much show them inove and romantically connected as he does tell the audience repeatedly that they re husband and wife and in ove Their connection to each other seemed another casualty of Sanderson s compulsive need to sanitize this story of any sort of adult element that might arise There is even a scene where Sanderson goes out of his way to explain that Kandra remove their visible genitals so when a few of them are walking around naked they re walking ike barbie dolls or Crewmembers Of The USS of the USS doesn t make sense They re not even human though they use human form So why would they worry about removing their genitals It s stuff The Baby Swap Miracle like this that pulled me out of the story and honestly makes me cringe aittle Further 3 books in and the only decent female character Sanderson bothered to put in this trilogy was Vin There are than a half dozen supporting male characters in this series and the majority of them all survive to the end of the story Surely one or two other awesome female characters could have found something important to do in this book Don t even get me started on Beldre who I think was a terrible character with unrealistic motivations from start to finish She only exists to ensure that every character gets neatly paired off with a romantic and heterosexual interest of their own at the end of the book Before I started this series I had plans on prioritizi. U Pramene Povýšení Vin nechtěně osvobodila neznámou negativní sílu která v něm byla uvězněná tisíc et Podobně jako se Kelsier kdysi postavil neporazitelnému nepříteli v podobě Pána Vládce učí se teď Vin s Elendem bojovat proti abstraktní. Ng Words of Radiance and Oathbringer this year but after this experience I ve moved them to the bottom of my to be read ist I enjoyed The Way of Kings when I read it but I ve also read 100 great books since then and I think my standards might be a bit higher than they used to be and I m no onger sure I d enjoy the seuels 3 out of 5 starsThank you to my buddy read partners href Humphrey and Scrill These adies are wonderful and if you re not following them you should be This is not a review This is a story a story about a man who opened the first pages of Mistborn The Final EmpireBack in August 2016 there was a man who ived in emptiness He was probably clinically depressed but he would never know he didn t get himself checked His heart didn t ache his smile was freely given but he was never happy he felt empty every day Damages were added when he realized his hobbies didn t interest him that much any which resulted in reluctant social interaction with his friends His insomnia was so acute that he couldn t sleep without alcohol so he drowned in it every night These symptoms were most ikely the aftermath of cumulative mental damage afflicted by those closest to him His best friend spread Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation lies about him his closest cousin stole tons of money from him and then heost his job and his then girlfriend dumped him He was alone He told himself this can t be it There s always a way to come back stronger He decided to do something new he decided to fully immerse himself in reading novels There were countless choices out there and he didn t know what to choose first but on the 1st of September 2016 he dived into the mist and hope was bornHe was completely addicted By the end of the trilogy reading fiction especially fantasy became a drug for him Amazed by the five year struggle the characters in the book became incredibly real to him and he Gender Justice lived through every single event with them He knew that the end of this trilogy was the beginning of what he hoped would be an everlasting adventure He knew that he had become deeply entrenched by the power of wordsThis is not a review this is a story A story about a renewed man who closed theast page on The Hero of Ages as a different person from the one who first picked up the book A story about me rising out of the mist a better man I am unfortunately the Hero of Ages Picture The Hero of Ages by breath artI ve read and reviewed than 200 novels within the past two and a half years I won t Generations and Collective Memory lie during that journey I ve read series that I think are better than this trilogy However when it comes to a matter of importance this trilogy stands at the utmost top and there will never exist another that could change that situation for me Finishing this trilogy watered the flower of hope in my garden I found aot of friends who have the same hobby as me I found a new job I found a new girlfriend who oves to read and understand my passions I m not empty anySome readers will consider Brandon Sanderson a weak author who doesn t deserve his success Some will consider his books or characters to be poorly written Some will envy Sanderson because he s successful than their favorite authors All of these are views they have every right to hold after all we re all entitled to our opinions For me he s none of these things Sometimes I wonder if I would have become the man I am today if I had picked a different series to start my iterary adventure Maybe I wouldn t have fallen in ove with fantasy novels so deeply maybe all the blessings I mentioned before would not have aligned with my stars However that s a uestion I can t answerI know that I haven t talked about this concluding installment and what made the book superb But thinking about it when a book has managed to change the core of my ifestyle I doubt I need to fully explain what made this trilogy amazing Like I said I won claim this trilogy is the best series out there because it s best series out there because it It s one of my favorites but I ve Encountered Plenty That Are Definitely Better However Nothing Can Change plenty that are definitely better However nothing can change fact that the Mistborn trilogy will always be the most important novels in my Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America life It sparked myove for reading fantasy novels it s an alpha in my endless journey to find omega I haven t met Sanderson and I don t know if I ever will he most ikely won t ever read these words and that s okay A reader and author are connected most of the time by a monetary relationship I pay to read their story and they need money to keep on making stories I m content with doing that It s time for me to put an end to this portion of my story adventure awaits Brandon Sanderson here are my closing sentences for youNo matter what anyone else says about you your works are responsible for changing my
