The Hero of Ages(Mistborn #3) by Brandon Sanderson

GoodReads Link

I worked my way to the end of this series. The review of the #1 and #2 are in the links. If you are not familiar with the series but still intend to read the review (thank you 🙂 )then reading the previous reviews could give some insight into this one. If you have read one of the books but not the rest, how did you manage to do that?

This is the epic finale of the trilogy with more battles and bloodshed than ever before. Each book in the series has a twist which I have tried to avoid mentioning, but hints have to be given for the review to make sense. The world has been in chaos since the toppling of the throne and the subsequent successions, this is one final bid to bring some sort of stability or die trying. There is an extra evil in the air, something that is added in the previous book. This evil is playing many games, I spent the first half of the book as much in the dumps as all the people within the pages, and I actually ended up thinking this much of sadness would make me not like the book. Then the idea of faith and trust in those who lead wormed its way out of the cracks and provides strength to the fighting armies. There are all the explanations we could ask for and some more which we never expected to be of consequence. There were some sly twists thrown in, each change of scenario has us questioning if this alters our entire theory of what is taking place in the world of the mistborn.

I may not have liked this book as much as the last two, but it still deserves its great rating. I may have to hunt up more of the author’s books shortly.

P.S: Kindle unlimited got more interesting audible included books recently and I am very excited about it.
