Mistborn: The Final Empire
Mistborn: The Final Empire | Brandon Sanderson
Brandon Sanderson, fantasy's newest master tale spinner, author of the acclaimed debut "Elantris," dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises and magical martial-arts action that begins in "Mistborn."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.Readers of "Elantris" thought they'd discovered someone special in Brandon Sanderson. "Mistborn "proves they were right.

This book was so long but So worth reading! It‘s full of fantasy tropes, the chosen one who was an orphan but now is all powerful, evil villain, and secrets and a kindly mentor who teaches the hero how to use said power. I loved it! It was fun and very heisty while also being about saving the day and helping people. Vin was a believable and relatable character. The only thing I didn‘t like was the rushed love story which felt unnecessary.

In a bit of a reading slump. Any suggestions on how to get back into this great book?

Megabooks My advice is to read an old favorite or go outside your usual genre. One of those almost always works for me! 2w

Question for my fantasy reading #littens... Mistborn is the first in the series. According to my half-assed googling The Alloy of Law is the fourth in the series but the first in the Wax and Wayne series. The Alloy of Law appeals to me a little more (based on Amazon synopsis.) Can I skip straight to that?

tournevis That's the reading order I found, but honeslty, I'd ask Sanderson himself. He's online a lot. 2mo
Sace @tournevis Thanks for the link! It's very helpful! 2mo
Soubhiville Interesting. I loved the Mistborn trilogy, but I really didn‘t care for Alloy. I feel like Sanderson is pretty good at restating how his magic systems work in each book, but honestly don‘t remember Alloy, so I‘m not sure. The magic system is complex, so that would be my only concern. I do remember the story being entirely different though, and feeling like Alloy didn‘t fit the series for me. 2mo

I know basically everyone raves about this book, but I‘m disappointed that I didn‘t like it as much as I thought I would. I‘ve tried since September to finish this book, but I couldn‘t even make it to the halfway mark and eventually gave up. The initial concept was interesting, but the different metals was kind of hard to remember and keep track of, and I feel like it could have been better done. Maybe one day I will try this one again.

TheSpineView I loved, but every book can't fit everybody. There is a saying, "One size fits all, fits no one well." 2mo

I‘m about a hundred pages in and I‘m enjoying it so far! I wish I had more time to read this but it‘s the holiday season so my life so far is all work and no play...though I did have the time to send out my package yesterday for the #winterswap for #litsylove...onto the next one (or four) hundred pages!

This book is the definition of what a wonderful scifi story is supposed to be.

Today was UNPLEASANT, as predicted. It took me until about 11:30 to fully wake up, and I felt crappy alllllll day. Now I‘m headed to bed at 9:00.

Still, I managed to revise stuff and hit my FitBit goals and do some #audiocooking come suppertime. Spicy sausage & tofu scramble with greens makes for a great standby, especially since my Superstore had sausages for super cheap today. I got 28 for $2.70. Should keep me going for a while!

And here‘s a rare selfie to show off today‘s #audiodying efforts. It‘s nice and blue again, but the dye didn‘t take well on the ends—it never does with my hair, in defiance of all convention—and there‘s one troublesome patch on the back of my head that doesn‘t like to absorb colour either. Luckily it won‘t really show when I wear my hair up, which I‘ve been doing most days in a last-ditch effort to keep the ends from breaking so often.

I finally started my MISTBORN reread while I applied my hair dye. None of the selfies I attempted were remotely acceptable, so here‘s a photo of the dye box in lieu of. I love how it turned out last time, but it faded quicker than I wanted it to. I‘m hoping it‘ll have better staying power this time, over the fade-out instead of the red/blonde it went atop before. #audiodying

Seekingtardis This is the color i use too!! And within 4 weeks it was completely gone and the dusty blonde i had is mostly all back now. I love the color just don‘t love the speed of the fade! 8mo
xicanti @Seekingtardis mine turned into a blue-tinged light brown with greenish-yellow streaks. Under some lights it was still SUPER BLUE, but a lot of the time it just looked kind of boring. Fingers crossed for this reapplication. 8mo
