From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

Who is the Hero of Ages?

To 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!

    This is the second time listening to the Mistborn series. Amazing. love love love these books. and it's so wonderful that it's a completed story. Michael Kramer is one of the greatest narrator's there is. I could listen to him read anything, a shopping list even!

    .The hero of ages Vin frowned, or at least she felt as if she was frowning. Also, Elend frowned. I'm not sure if I give this book 3 or 4 stars, so i'll give it 3.5 stars. The 3rd book of the series brings us the developed characters and the culminating ending. I won't spoil it, I'll just say that it was worth the while, though it wasn't as gripping as the first book - to my opinion (of course).

    yet another amazing book by Brandon. Another amazing narration by Michael

  • Graham S.

  • Daniel M.

    Excellent trilogy. Michael Kramer is an amazing story teller. He makes the books come to life.

  • Quincie R.

    I wonder if there could've been an ending more perfect to this perfect ending to this trilogy's end?

  • Nicholas Webb

    Every time I see the cover of this novel, a myriad of emotions hit me like a wave, throwing me into an unavoidable state of reflection. This volume of the Mistborn trilogy is the grand cherry on top. The transition from The Well Of Ascension to The Hero of Ages was executed perfectly and thoughtfully, helping the reader/listener to catch up on the important details. The narration is as seamless as the writing. If you have made it this far, it would be a grievous mistake to leave the events of this book to the unknown; you have no excuse. I am 29 years of age at the writing of this review, and yet I know that I will look back at this period of my life with the Mistborn series being the focal point.

    The pacing of the mistborn books are such that they keep you always at the edge of your seat. this ending to the original trilogy really ties everything together. definitely a series worst picking up.

  • Charles Johns

    Sanderson has quickly become one of my favorite authors. Books 1 thru 3 are truly amazing. Hero of Ages was the perfect conclusion. I haven't read books 4 thru 6 yet. I'm not sure how he can improve upon the first trilogy.
