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.
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 ★
