Publisher Comments:

Evil has been defeated. The war has just begun.

They did the impossible, deposing the godlike being whose brutal rule had lasted a thousand years. Now Vin, the street urchin who has grown into the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and Elend Venture, the idealistic young nobleman who loves her, must build a healthy new society in the ashes of an empire.

They have barely begun when three separate armies attack. As the siege tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.

It may just be that killing the Lord Ruler was the easy part. Surviving the aftermath of his fall is going to be the real challenge.

Synopsis:

After deposing the godlike being whose brutal rule had lasted a thousand years, Vin, the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and Elend Venture, the idealistic young nobleman who loves her, must build a healthy new society, in this second novel of Mistborn.

This second book in the Mistborn Trilogy takes what you learned in the first book and builds on it, shattering some things you thought you learned and expanding the magic system to give it even more depth. We learn how people can change when forced into certain situations and that what we think about ourselves and our world morphs and grows with experience. With a story full of challenges to faith and trust, this trilogy is very recommended.

Brandon Sandersons Mistborn trilogy is what epic fantasy is all about. This is the second book. Mistborn is a very well rounded story with great characters, really creative magic and many unexpected turns. The story moves along very well without any lulls or boring parts. Putting it down will be hard. Read this and you will know why Brandon was chosen to finish Robert Jordans Wheel of Time.
