Review

Praise for the Mistborn series and Brandon Sanderson:
" ["The Hero of Ages"] brings the Mistborn epic fantasy trilogy to a dramatic and surprising climax.... Sanderson's saga of consequences offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith, and responsibility."
"--Publishers Weekly
"" Sanderson is an evil genius. There is simply no other way to describe what he's managed to pull off in this transcendent final volume of his Mistborn trilogy."
--"RT Book Reviews "(Gold Medal, Top Pick!) on "The Hero of Ages
"" It's rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise."
--Orson Scott Card

This book continues to explore the world in the first mistborn series but after 300 years since the first events. There are plenty of bittersweet hat tips to the characters in the first series. You really get to see their mark upon the world through the centuries and an unexpected guest from the past returns at the end. But the characters in this one are also vivid and interesting. The plot is fresh and combining some western with Victorian-era steampunk and even much more modern technology. I don't even like western but this book was good. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Didn't think I'd enjoy it. Didn't want to move on from the original books.
Glad I did, great book.

This trilogy is a lot more light hearted (or at least comedic) than the original mistborn trilogy. I don't think it quite reaches the same heights but nontheless is an excellent and enjoyable read and fully deserving of 5 stars. If you enjoyed the mistborn trilogy I would definitely recommend

It has the implication that we will find out more about the characters in the first 3 Mistborn books...which is kind of nice.

Reading the original three books, Brandon Sanderson's change from swords to guns in an era where cars are still a fascination is a brilliant addition.
Wayne being a favoured character with his style of personality and the great imagination used for his abilities made this a great read.

Easy to read, fast paced and enjoyable. Good to see another mistborn book. Moves the world on in time from the previous trilogy, with some nice new ideas. Looking forward to the next one.

This is Brandon Sanderson trying to write comedy in fantasy and I'm afraid it grated after a while. The story was good, clues back to the 1st three books didn't always work. The characters were a little too typical of the comedy genre but the plot did take me along with it. Conclusion: a tad too predictable.
