The Hero of Ages
The Hero of Ages: Book Three of Mistborn | Brandon Sanderson
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 the 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.

Wow! This book was fantastic! What a satisfying end to Mistborn trilogy. Full of action and characters that are easy to love. My only gripe is that it is a bit repetitive.

Let me be clear. I love this world. I love the characters. I love the story. BUT, I am quite annoyed by the amount of repetition. If I'm half way through the third book of the trilogy, I'd better understand how the metals work in the magic system. PLEASE stop explaining it! Also, I am quite aware that Vin wears a simple shirt and trousers. #rantover #neededtovent #cosmere #fantasy

Alas, it comes to an end, and I know there are some more books in the same universe etc.
But I can‘t bring myself to buy them. Im more than happy with the way the Mistborn series ended. Although a bit predictable it was still a great way to wrap it up. 4️⃣⭐️ 🙌🏻 #fantasy #epicfantasy

I really identified with Sazed's questions about religion and how can you choose one out of hundreds to be the only true religion. I don't think I'll be able to use his method to answer my own questions (his was a little extreme and magical 😅), but it still felt good to see someone else grapple with questions I've had since high school.

Not totally happy with the resolution of Vin's storyline though🤨

Final book in the trilogy and I‘m so sad that it‘s over. Such a great world, story, and characters that I would put right up there with the song of fire and ice series. I want to give my brother Alex a big thank you for suggesting these books and I will be reading a lot more Brandon Sanderson books in the near future. (My daughter really wanted to model the book bedhead and all)

Done ✅ I finished this book on audiobook yesterday, and although it wasn‘t a perfect end to the series, I was really happy with it. It managed to actually surprise me to the very end, which I hadn‘t expected. I won‘t be reading the other books Sanderson wrote to continue the series because I felt like this was a conclusive and satisfying end to the story.

In this action-packed final installment, Elend, Vin, Sazed, and the crew struggles to save the world, which is increasingly being ruined by the all too conveniently named Ruin. There are lots of battles, plans, foiled plans, clues, and answers. I especially liked that the clues were coming in an order that I could stay one step ahead figuring them out. The ending was amazing and fitting. Sazed rocks. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This book was so good! I cried the last 20 pages, because it was such an emotional journey and I'm so happy for the way it was wrapped up (mostly at least, my heart just has to recover first). I am glad some of my theories came true, and I will definitely read more Sanderson from hereon.
