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.
