  • Great ending, not always a great journey

    By Markus1023
    —-Minor Spoilers —- I found it hard to warm up to the characters in this book, especially Vin. I ended up liking her more towards the end of Book 3, but I did not find her very believable (e.g. how quickly she changes from feelings of worthlessness and trusting nobody to the exact opposite.) The books also offer very little of a buildup between her and Elend (who also undergoes very rapid and abrupt changes). The many characters (too many, or maybe not fletched out enough) often felt flat, and other than Sazed and maybe “OreSeur” I didn’t really feel I connected with any of them. The whole system of Allomancy felt gimmicky to me at times. Simply put and for lack of better words, I didn’t think it as “cool” as the book maybe wants to convey. It didn’t bother me either and it worked well tied into the bigger picture, but I didn’t buy the one dimensional bad a**ery Vin was supposed to portray. However, I thought the Inquisitors, Terrismen, the Lord Ruler, Feruchemists, among other things, helped create a very interesting world and the third book finished with a completely unexpected and “awesome” ending. I did not see it coming, I never read a series and was so moved by an ending. I think the ending makes the difference between 3 and 4 stars in this case. Unlike Stormlight, I don’t get the praise. Mistborn is still a good read I’d recommend to Fantasy fans, even though I’m personally not planning on reading the newer entries at this point.
  • How could someone give this one star?

    By fantasy_reader
    I don’t see how someone could give this one star. Either they didn’t read it, or are making a bad joke, because from the characters, to the plot, to the interesting magic system, these books are some of the best I’ve ever read, and I read them for hours at a time, because I just couldn’t stop! For anyone who even remotely likes fantasy genre, READ THESE BOOKS!!! 5.5/5 stars

  • Amazing

    By Jenn_68
    I read the Wheel of Time series and was thrilled with how well Brandon Sanderson did to finish the series. This is my first bit of his books, but definitely won’t be my last! Love it! Great introduction into his work!
  • A must-read for all fantasy fans

    By Alek1738
    I’ve read a dozen or so fantasy series, this is my favorite when it comes to completed series. Sanderson and his team are on point. Keep up the good work!

    I loved this trilogy. It was the first Brandon Sanderson work I’ve read and I will definitely be buying more.
  • Mistborn trilogy

    By RUBYCat1
    The book was a little on the slow side. It was an interesting concept as far as the characters and the situations they were in but there just was no spark that kept my interest. It was a book I could easily put down. I cannot explain why. I would be hesitant to recommend this to anyone else.
  • So Fun

    By Saulito221
    Each book was fun and exciting. Great twists and turns. Fantastic ride.
  • Mistborn Trilogy

    By Judi P
    The characters fly off the pages. Sanderson has such control of Mistborn world that the reader is drawn in and held in place from the first page to the last. This is an amazing trilogy.
