The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, Book 3) The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was a fantastic read! If you are a fantasy lover and have not read the Mistborn trilogy, what are you waiting for? This was brilliantly written and woven together so well. I will warn you, these are not easy read books. There are many things, places and people to remember.



I talked to Brandon Sanderson and he said he wrote the three books simultaneously. This is very apparent as you read the books. The characters in this book are bright, intelligent and unforgettable.Even though this is a fantasy book, there will be some tears shed at times in this book; be prepared.



This third book in the trilogy wraps things up so well. I was very satisfied with the ending. The books in the trilogy are very long, but well worth the read.



The Hero of Ages also just won the Whitney Award for Best Speculative Fiction novel on April 25, 2009. He richly deserves this honor.

  2. Well any one that knows me, realizes that fantasy books rock my world! I told someone at the conference that I am a sci-fi/fantasy nerd and proud of it! That doesn't mean that I don't like to read other genres, because I do.

    I had a total blast all weekend long!!! Why can't we have that conference every other month? It was so helpful and inspirational. Can you let me know about other writers conferences? That would be great!
