I had been reading Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time and frankly was a little bored with book #10 Crossroads of Twilight when I saw that Brandon Sanderson had just finished book #12 The Gathering Storm for Mr. Jordan. I read a few paragraphs at random and felt compelled to read more as I had Jordan's earlier books in the series. I wanted to see how Brandon Sanderson's own work compared so bought the Mistborn trilogy. Frankly it was a quick and exciting read right from the start. I have recommended it to several relatives and friends - no one has been disappointed.

First of all, let me say that Brandon Sanderson has one of the best writing styles i have ever seen. I would nearly classify him with Raymond E. Feist, author of the Riftwar saga and the related series. All three of these books were able to capture my attention so thouroughly that sleeping was not an option. The imagery of the surroundings leaves something to be desired, but he makes up for it in plotline and character development. The first book was, in my own opinion, the best. Mr. Sanderson has created a marvellous piece of art; one that I would reccommend to any lover of science fiction and/or fantasy.

Where have I been? How come I haven't read Brandon Sanderson before? Sanderson has wonderful, rich dynamic characters. I like the balance between the external and internal struggles they face. His magic system is wonderful and unique! Wonderful plot twists and turns. I read every single word written on the page--that's how good this book is. I usually find myself skimming through sections of books that don't further the characterizations or the plot, but this book held me captive to each and every word and concept. This is a must read for the genre, and I would even reccomend it to someone interested in branching into Fantasy for the first time, though the Mistborn series might ruin all other fantasy for them as it is sooo good. How can Sanderson write such thick books that seem to whiz by? His pacing is incredible and his writing is excellent--it will endure the test of time.

I think Sanderson has written a trilogy rich in cultural relevance while still providing that escape that fantasy readers love. This is not high fantasy, but I think it has certain appeals that fans of high fantasy enjoy--like superior religious and ethnic development of peoples. I also enjoy the political development in the books. This is a very unique trilogy written by an author with the talent for new and interesting worlds and magics of L.E. Modesitt (perhaps a bit more...I do love Modesitt, though). It's no wonder Sanderson was chosen to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.

My husband read it at night instead of sleeping-he could not stop. He talked me into reading to. I did not like the beginning first, but as I kept on going - it was very hard to stop and go to work. I could not wait to com back to see how story goes. It has very unique fantasy, action, battles, romance, intrigue, and characters are awesome! The third book is my least favorite, it was a bit too much pondering on right/wrong but still plenty of action. At the end I cried as usual. Highly recommend to read!

My introduction to Brandon Sanderson was Way of Kings & Words of Radiance. I read all 2200 pages in about 8 days. I found it extraordinarily compelling, and was left thirsting for more. I've read through the first two books of this trilogy, and it shares many of the same characteristics of the Stormlight Archives 1 & 2. I.e. a well thought-out magical system, and interesting character growth and transformation. This series (at least the first 2/3) is a very fun, satisfying read. I presume we share a particular taste in books, since you're considering buying the series. Go ahead and make the purchase - you won't regret it!

Sanderson can always impress with his detailed handling of new worlds, magical laws, and of course his signature (and elegant) martial fight scenes, but the Mistborn trilogy is still his greatest work so far. He leads you with secret after secret in his dark, yet enchanting, fantasy world, until you learn there's always a more incredible reveal right around the corner. Add bonus: Vin may be the best and most interesting female lead character I have ever read in fantasy.

WOW! I'm impressed! I'm generally a fast reader but there is so much detail and information you can't just breeze through it. I wouldn't recommend this book for a young age; maybe early teens? The fight scenes are awesome and intense but graphic. It is hard to give another series as a comparison. There is this great Power/Ruler that exists and that made me think of Lord of the Rings. The setting reminded me of Harry Potter's; cobblestone streets, old cities: some with walls around them, no guns and a type of "magic" is used that we have ever seen. Nothing hocus pocus here, it is all about the use of metals. I threw Narnia in because this series gives characters something to believe in, though it isn't really religious. I think what reminded me of Star Wars is the fact that the battles are epic and intense; no light sabers, swords are used. That and there are a couple groups of "people" this writer created that made me think they would fit in at the Star Wars bar. But they aren't so out there that it is silly. If you like fantasy books then you will love this! If you're not a fan of one of the series I compared this to, still give it a try. It is very original and SO action packed.

I would rank this work up with the Tad Williams Dragon Bone series, one of my favorites. Something the whole family can read. I plan on reading more of Brandon Sanderson work.

I honestly would have to say that this is the best series I have ever read. The first one is the the single best book but if you read the first you absolutely must read the other two to have everything answered. It is 100% worth it to read this series if not own it. It is absolutely amazing!
