Brandon Sanderson's epic fantasy trilogy overturns the expectations of readers and then goes on to tell the epic story of evil overturned in a richly imagined world. A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields. But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy - the magic that lies in all metals. A word of mouth success in the states the Mistborn trilogy has, this year, broken onto the New York Times Bestseller list. The time is ripe for its success to cross the Atlantic

Mit bewundernswerter Ausdauer schrieb er Roman um Roman, schickte sie an Verlage und sammelte Absagen, bis er 2003 endlich akzeptiert wurde. Es folgte ein kometenhafter Aufstieg, der ihn in den Olymp der...
This book kept me up until almost 5 am because I just had to finish it. Not only was it unique, it kept me guessing right up until the very end, which so few books have done, and the characters were phenomenal. A thousand years ago the hero that was prophesied to save the world, failed. The Lord...
Triggered by a status update I made a few hours ago, although I meander around the topic significantly here, looking over this in retrospect. I've written like 3 different reviews in the past and torn them all down. Does anyone else get that experience? Sometimes you read a book, you write a revie...
