Did I really just finish 3 books in less than a month. I just finished Hero of Ages last night. For simplicity sake I'm just going to spoiler everything...
The book was a little boring until the last 1/4. It was nice to get a little more info on how things work. I was pleasantly surprised though. Again, I feel like I am decent at guessing these things and he surprised me once again. Even during book 2 I was thinking "I wouldn't be surprised if Elend ending up being the Hero, not Vin." And I even thought that was the case, because in the middle of this book TenSoon said "The hero will lead an army of mistborn to the homeland" Meaning his, hathsin place. And Elend did that....Vin didn't...Saze didn't. So I am still slightly confused by that statement. Minus that, what happened in the end, Saze being the true hero and combining the two forces. And his Religious Metal Minds having such an important role to play. Very cool. Anyways, not the greatest writing skill in this series. Definitely not as good as his WoT versions. But I thought this STORY was very very well thoughtout. Came together very good, was a really fun read. No major complaints.
Except, what is the 15th and 16th metal. Why not tell us?! Should I look it up, or will that ruin something that happens in Allow of Law?
Now my only question is what to read next....
The Riyria Revelations (Michael J. Sullivan)
- I had planned to read this, but didn't. I heard there is a good audio version, which makes it easy for me to read a book quickly.
Death Dealer (James Silke)
- Not convinced of the quality of this series. But it is a favorite of a friend of mine, and I've been telling him forever that I'd read it.
- Considering this one because of the movie coming out.
