The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

The Hero of Ages (Mistborn, #3)The Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book had both an exhaustive treatment of the characters at the end of the story AND at the same time it was too short. Weird. From the wrap up of detailed explanations at the end, to the path that was laid so carefully throughout the first books, all of it was carefully crafted. This was my 2nd reading, and the details were really apparent on this trip through the Final Empire. I wanted it to go on and on, as I found it so immersive that I should have taken notes as I read.

Did I find a few holes in the story? Yes, I think I did (usually around laws of physics), but they don't matter compared to the larger work. One or two brush strokes out of place does not ruin a masterpiece.

Well done and thank you.
