Brandon Sanderson, fantasy's newest master tale spinner, author of the acclaimed debut Elantris, dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises and magical martial-arts action that begins in Mistborn. For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison. Kelsier "snapped" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld's elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. Like him, she's a half-Skaa orphan, but she's lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed. Readers of Elantris thought they'd discovered someone special in Brandon Sanderson. Mistborn proves they were right. At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

4.0 Mistborn: Re-read
I apparently hadn't read all of this book the first time round like i had originally thought, so the ending was a nice little surprise.....well mostly. Overall I still loved the book (how could I not love something created by Brandon Sanderson!?!) though I still have mixed feelings about Vin's chara...

3.0 Wirft mehr Fragen auf, als es beantwortet
Brandon Sanderson begann bereits während seines Studiums ernsthaft an seiner Karriere zu feilen. 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...

5.0 Mistborn
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...

3.0 Review: The Final Empire...or maybe a sort of rant too
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...

5.0 Mistborn: The Final Empire
I've been hearing about this book everywhere lately so I picked it up since I've been on a fantasy kick lately. I can totally see why people are raving about this book. It's got a heist aspect to it, it's got a revolution aspect to it, and it's really well done. I really love Vin and Kelsier, I like...
