The Hero of Ages, Brandon Sanderson – A Review. [SPOILERS]

What Em's Reading (4)


Welcome back to my blog my lovely ppl❤

I’ve finished The Hero of Ages, and the whole Mistborn Book series from Brandon Sanderson! I’ll be doing a review on the series as a whole (probably the post after this one, and I’ll link my 3 reviews into that post should you want to read them).

Anyway, ON WITH THE REVIEW (especially since it’s taken me so long to read it..)

On the whole, this book was good, but not as good as the previous two. I felt like it was a very slow burner and then rushed at the end, almost as if the publishers had said “you need to get it out ASAP” and he wrote it so quickly.

I will say, it did come a full circle, and everything made sense at the end, which was a massive positive of the book, especially since the first two build up to that exact moment. That being said, I did find the getting to that point rushed.

The book was also split into 3/4 POV, so you were never sure who you were going to be following in which chapter, which I think is why it was so full and slow, because he was trying to tie up too many things.

On the whole, the book was good, a slow burner with a rushed ending, but it did round off the series nicely and tied everything together.

Now I’ve finally read the whole series I’ll do a complete post on the series as a whole, which will be out soon.

The Well of Ascension, Brandon Sanderson – A Review. [SPOILERS]

What Em's Reading (4)

Aloha!!! (That’s become my favourite way of saying Hello after went to Disney soz)

I have completed Mistborn Book 2 – The Well of Ascension. WOOP.

And, well, wow. I suprised myself really with this book, I really enjoyed it from the second I picked it up but for some reason about 200 pages from the end I stopped reading for a couple of weeks, which now I’ve finished it, I wish I hadn’t stopped reading.

It was brilliant. From start to finish the whole book was a thousand times better than the first one. Because the scene was already set this book delved so much more into the journey that the empire undergoes.

There were a few different strands of the story, that all came together beautifully, with The Well of Ascension there was nothing, that I felt, was left unexplained.

There were a few shocks along the way, one that actually made me out loud say “I didn’t see that coming” and another that I’m hoping they’ll explore further in the next book.

I found The Well of Ascension to be a truly exciting, epic adventure and I can’t wait to start on book 3!

Till next time,
