Who is the Hero of Ages?

To end the Final Empire and restore freedom, Vin killed the Lord Ruler. But as a result, the Deepness---the lethal form of the ubiquitous mists---is back, along with increasingly heavy ashfalls and ever more powerful earthquakes. Humanity appears to be doomed.

Having escaped death at the climax of The Well of Ascension only by becoming a Mistborn himself, Emperor Elend Venture hopes to find clues left behind by the Lord Ruler that will allow him to save the world. Vin is consumed with guilt at having been tricked into releasing the mystic force known as Ruin from the Well. Ruin wants to end the world, and its near omniscience and ability to warp reality make stopping it seem impossible. She can't even discuss it with Elend lest Ruin learn their plans!

The conclusion of Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy fulfills all the promise of the first two books. Revelations abound, connections rooted in early chapters of the series click into place, and surprises, as satisfying as they are stunning, blossom like fireworks to dazzle and delight. It all leads up to a finale unmatched for originality and audacity that will leave readers rubbing their eyes in wonder, as if awaking from an amazing dream.

Quotes & Awards

  • Michael Kramer brings his distinctive style to the final book of the Mistborn Trilogy. He has a familiarity with the many characters that listeners may want to share by listening to Books 1 and 2 in order to place the complex plot and characters in context…Kramer delivers quiet forward momentum in the introspective and narrative passages and increases his intensity for the skirmishes and battles.

    " A fair bit of talking about what the characters want to do then doing it. As well as a lot of explaining characters thoughts each time they have them (can get a bit repetitive). Appart from that, the whole series is a great story and well planned out. "

    " However you felt about the endings of BSG and LOST, you'll feel about this one. A lot better than the second book. Still way less impressive than the first. "

    " Absolutely incredible! I could not put this book down. It was filled with so many twists and surprises that it had me gasping and covering my mouth. I was expecting a lot out of this book, being the final book in the trilogy, and Brandon Sanderson did not disappoint. He keeps you guessing, but then does something completely shocking. You can't really expect the events to happen as they did. This was awesome. Beyond awesome. "
