This review is from: Mistborn Trilogy Boxed Set (Mistborn, The Hero of Ages, & The Well of Ascension) (Mass Market Paperback)Robert Jordan has always been my favorite fantasy author. When he died, I was heartbroken that he was gone as well as terrified that The Wheel of Time series would be finished by someone unworthy of Jordan's mantle. I had never read anything by Brandon Sanderson before reading The Gathering Storm, and I had no idea what to expect. It turned out that my fears were unfounded, however, as I quickly found myself enraptured by Sanderson's easy and exhilarating flow. He has a perfect balance of tangential description and plot movement. At no point during The Gathering Storm did I find myself thinking "Come on! Come on! Get to the good stuff!" I'm sure you are thinking that right now, however, so I'll get to the point.
I bought the Mistborn trilogy because of how impressed I was with Sanderson's writing in The Gathering Storm. I just finished the third book about ten minutes ago, and I am blown away. I have never read a fantasy series this well crafted before. I am trying to think of something to complain about, but I can't. This trilogy is simply fantastic.
Whether or not you enjoy the fantasy genre, buy this.
