Mistborn : Final Empire Series (Book #1) (Mistborn, Book 1)

Mistborn: The Final Empire  - Brandon Sanderson Slow starting, but building to an unexpected conclusion, Mistborn is another original and excellent fantasy novel from Brandon Sanderson who can seemingly create a completely original and fully logical magic system every time he publishes a novel. Mistborn benefits too from a tightly constructed plot and a cast of sympathetic and believably flawed characters, especially Vin, the series' female lead. For the first part of a trilogy, Mistborn is satisfying enough its own to have the reader look forward to the next installment, where a weaker series would compel readers with a less than finished story. There is nothing to regret here; Sanderson is as good as ever.
