5.0 out of 5 stars fantastically crafted series!, August 31, 2010

This review is from: Mistborn Trilogy Boxed Set (Mistborn, The Hero of Ages, & The Well of Ascension) (Mass Market Paperback)
Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy is an amazing addition to the fantasy world of literature. The first book, "Mistborn," is a highly entertaining and engrossing read, with twists and turns that aren't too predictable, and which stands on its own as a perfectly contained story. The second book, "The Well of Ascension," is very 'Empire Strikes Back,' in that it cooks at a somewhat slower boil for much of the book, but explodes in the final third with well written action, development, and surprises, pulling the reader inexorably onward to the final installment. The third book, "The Hero of Ages," was simply amazing. A non-stop thrill ride of adventure and mind boggling revelations, it ties up all the loose story hooks, but doesn't slam the door shut on the world. Sanderson has done a wonderful job in this series, crafting a well thought out story arc from beginning to end, with three-dimensional characters who you can really cheer for, and delightfully original magic systems. It is so incredibly satisfying to read a story where the author has so skillfully woven all the pieces together from beginning to end so that they unfold perfectly to reveal their complexity and precision. The Mistborn trilogy is an absolute must-read.
