I really enjoyed this book. The development of the characters is great, I loved the magic system and the world creation was detailed and believable. I would highly recommend this book

Oh man, I couldn't put this book down! I've read some pretty lame fantasy books before, so I was pretty skeptical about this one. What a pleasant surprise! Sanderson did a fantastic job of creating a believable world with very relatable characters.

For readers of fantasy. Sanderson has created a complex world with an intricate plot and some interesting characters.

Not only does Sanderson create one unique magic system in this series, he creates two! This author outdoes himself this time. Each character is unique, and their magic type fits along with their personality. The world is thorough and complex, and the author always has more to reveal. All three books keep up the same level of excellence.

The Mistborn trilogy has some extraordinary types of non-human peoples in an unusual world. This is more than just the usual sword and sorcery story. The characters have depth and the "magic" involved is of a novel type. The plot is gripping and unpredicatble.

Awesome book, awesome trilogy! It was very difficult to put this book down at times. I don't regret the late night reading until the wee hours of the morning. I liked these so much I had to read everything else I could find that Brian wrote. If you are as enthralled as I am, check out Robert Jordans Wheel of Time series. Brian Sanderson completed two books in the series after Robert Jordan passed away.

My nephew recommended this book to us via his school librarian, my son couldn't put it down so he read the trilogy back to back, he shared it with his friend who also could not put it down. Definitely a good sci-fi
