Publisher Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

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.

This saga dares to ask a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails?

A masterpiece

I’ve tried to read a few different fantasy series lately and neither of them captured my intrigue as quickly and deeply as this. From start to finish, these characters are flawed, unique, and unbelievably lovable. The world set up in this first book has the perfect amount of mystery and detail that keeps you glued to the page. My coworkers recommended this series to me a bit too enthusiastically so I was skeptical. But this was worth every single second. Do yourself favor, clear your schedule, put your devices on do not disturb, and buckle in for this incredible ride. Also, avoid googling ANYTHING, just be patient and this amazing story.

Intelligent Fiction

The series starts in the first book with the overthrow of an empire, looking in books 2 & 3 at what comes *after* that overthrow. I found the series to be well written, and the plot thoughtful and intelligently designed.

A few instances of anachronistic language and several typographic errors (they look like OCR errors?) in the later books drop the score down to 4 stars.

I recommend this series without reservation.

Awesome but could’ve been faster.

Well time spent. Somehow expected turn of events until the very last 2 parts. Could’ve included more twists and been faster though.
