Want to add my one confusion here. How was the Lord Ruler able to take being burned alive, decapitated, spears through the chest, and other fatal injuries with not even a flinch. But dies of old age after his bracers were removed? One would assume if you were capable of dying of old age, you are capable of dying from decapitation or anything else.... I must be missing something!
Lord Ruler says:
I've survived burnings, beheadings. I've been stabbed, crushed, and dismembered. I was even flayed once.

*Some* of the stories of his potential demise seems to be a little exaggerated. It is not believed he was completely decapitated. Likely, he was able to use his goldmines before it was completed and heal himself. As for the other injuries, he would be able to use his stores to keep himself from death. However, when he was separated from his metalminds, the reverse effect of his delaying age caught up to him and killed him on the spot.
Well I just finished the second book. Pretty good. I did NOT expect that. Great twist!
I always had a feeling that Rashek was simply misunderstood. That he meant well, just didn't execute correctly. I even think all the oppression and executions had a noble ulterior motive. It was meant to keep him in charge so he could continue to keep the evil thing at bay. Was Marsh there to try and stop Vin, so she wouldn't do what she did? Are the Inquisitors really acting in the name of "good". This may be a stretch, but did they kill all the Keepers just so that religion would stop and that thing wouldn't get released? Did the Lord Ruler banish religions because of that Evil being manipulating them? It appears so now...everything is very meticulous.
Haven't started book3 yet. But I am a little disappointed that this is the last book.
You shall get the answers to most, if not all your questions in book 3. Sanderson didn't leave many questions unanswered, its a great book to wrap up the trilogy.
It is getting a sequel, I don't think Sanderson is going to write it though until he has a couple Stormlight books done since he has fallen behind on it due to WoT.
Reading The Way of Kings was a blessing and a curse for me. The book was absolutely fantastic but now I have to wait for book 2 and every other book in the series. Hopefully Sanderson can get book 2 finished on time
Enjoyed Mistborn, book one was the best for obvious reasons
Read the Night Angel trilogy by Weeks if you liked Mistborn, found them sort of similar but liked NA alot more.
And yes, NA is on my to-read list. Unfortunately there are a lot of books on that list, so no idea what order I'll be reading.
I haven't updated it in awhile, but that was my list as of like 9mo ago.
