Review: The Well of Ascension(Mistborn #2) by Brandon Sanderson
The Well of Ascension - Brandon Sanderson

Syno

 

Vin, the street urchin who has grown into the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and Elend Venture, the idealistic young nobleman who loves her, must build a healthy new society in the ashes of an empire. Three separate armies attack. As the siege tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.

 

 

My Thoughts

 

This book was insane, in a good way. While it felt seer long on audio I still enjoyed every minute of it. After the events if last book we have a lot of political stuff and planning, which normally bores me a little. But not this time, it was done well with not too much of this or that. Actually I can’t say I was ever bored during this book, it just keeps you on your toes, the entire time. The group is stronger than ever or at least it feel like it, the way they stick together and work together. I loved the friendship and relationships, sometimes unlikely friendships that were being built. Of course we see everyone, who survived last book, we also meet some new people. But be careful as the book had it, we never know who to trust. We meet Zayne early on but he is a big mystery most of the time. We also meet Tindle, and I’m not going to lie but I didn’t trust or like her, but in the end I liked her. She became somewhat the voice of reason for everyone and enjoyed that. Also heart warming was her friendship with Sazed even though they both so much different. Vin had a hard time adjusting to the new life and was still struggling … again. And often I felt bad for her that she couldn’t find a happy medium for her in some things. But as she does, she found what worked for her and in the end she worked through it. In many ways. Elend, I loved him in this book and I think he made the most progress….. But maybe that just felt like it because we get to know him better. I was also not a fan of Breeze before but that also changed, I enjoyed him a lot more. The same for OreSeur, we learn a lot more about him and his kind. Overall I loved this book, we get so much action and heartbreak and twist and turn on every corner. Up to the very last second didn’t know who to trust and one betrayal after the next. But we also get some tender and heartwarming moments and I loved the friendship between them all. The ending was crazy and I’m still not over it….

I’m very much looking forward to book three. I rate it 5 ★

Mistborn - Brandon Sanderson

Syno 

 

 

Following on the heels of Sanderson’s successful launch into the YA market with the New York Times bestselling Rithmatist comes Mistborn, now repackaged for the teen audience Once, a hero rose to save the world. He failed. For 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 failed miserably. Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and defeating the Lord Ruler. A new kind of uprising is being planned—one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine: a teenage street urchin named Vin. Once, a hero rose to save the world and failed. This time, can a young heroine succeed?

 

 

My Thoughts

 

OMG. This book was freaking fantastic. I loved every minute of it and even though it was a long book. I didn’t want it to end. The beginning while great also was a bit rocky, because we get a lot of info dumping but even with that I still enjoyed it, the info dumping was done right so it didn’t feel so overwhelming and boring. We do get multiple POV throughput the book, but mainly Vin. Speaking of Vin she was my favorite and I liked that she grew so much throughout the book, but in a manner that it seemed realistic, she learned and grew a lot but still made mistakes and had her doubts. She never gave up in believing in people, which made her also vulnerable. I also loved Kelsier, even though there were moments I wasn’t sure if we can trust him or not. Sazed was another one I loved and a great mystery about him. I think even after this first book that there is much more to him as we are lead to believe. Elend was another one I loved way too much, we never know if he is on the bad site or not till the end and that made it so much more interesting. I loved the magic system in this world and I never had one like this before. It was different (for me) and took a bit to understand but I really enjoyed it. The story is fast paced and never gets boring and has many surprises on the way. We get a little of everything, action, magic, humor and even romance a bit , but also betrayal and heartbreak come a long. I did shed a few tears throughout some because I laughed too hard others not so much. I’m utterly in love with this series and its characters and I cannot wait to get to book two. I did listen to the audio book and it was fantastic and greatly narrated, I highly recommend this book and the audio if you like fantasy. I rate it a full 5★
