The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series, his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action and his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic wheel of time sequence.
But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story, building on the incredible success of The Alloy of Law. The new Mistborn books move the series into a richly imagined 19th-century analogue world with elements of the Wild West mixed with magic and science. It's a wonderful concoction from a master storyteller.
Sanderson has the knack of giving epic fantasy listeners exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre, and this novel will take him to the next level.

I've been binging on Mistborn recently and while I don't think these books are as good as the original trilogy, I have grown very attached to Wax, Wayne and the rest of the gang. I think this book is certainly the best of their adventures so far and I am very much looking forward to the fourth and final book (nice surprise as I thought this was the last). Keep doing what you do, Mr Sanderson!
May the combination of Branson Sanderson and Michael kramer never end, without doubt the very best that audible can offer. As for the mistborn series, well it's the Mistborn what more needs saying, other than read them... all
I get bored quickly so take ages choosing my books. Preferred authors are Sanderson, Rothfuss, Abercrombie, tho' C Harris makes me laugh too
What a joy to pick up another of Mr Sanderson's books and be completely satisfied!
I love the characters in this story. Steris really comes into her own in this book, while Wayne continues to focus on his hats, and Wax still breaks things in spectacular fashion. I've always found these stories entertaining - there is a very gentle, but consistent thread of humour through it all, and I find myself wearing a little smile as I listen.
It's a satisfying ending to this trilogy, but the ground work has been set for yet more adventure. A word from Brandon Sanderson as an appendix confirms this, and he intends to get to work on it once he's finished the final instalment of the Stormlight series. Looking forward to it!
For Stormlight fans - watch out for Hoid who makes a very brief appearance.
Narration is spot on, as always!
I love all of Brandon Sanderson's books and particularly the Mistborn series however this book has surpassed all its predecessors! The characters have grown in each book but the relationships between them all in bands are brilliant. Wayne is potentially my favourite character of any book ever.
Brandon has really started to bring Mistborn more into the wider Cosmere story with bands and really throws in some interesting twists. Please buy this book and enjoy the great narration by Michael Kramer who really brings the characters to life.
The whole misborn series is so well thought out and build across the series to a grand scale thays keeps getting bigger while still revealing the truth behind. cannot recommend enough.
I think close to the top but not quite there
The ongoing mistborn story expanding into the world
most of them, the interaction of Wax and Wayne always cheers me up
The final scenes where everyone comes into their own
I thought this wasn't quite as good as previous efforts in this series, I cant put my finger on why, I still enjoyed it though
"Great book superbly narated. Very satisfied."
I've listened to the whole series so far, don' t know where Mr. Sanderson gets it all. Very entertaining though.
