Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Michael Kramer

Summary:

The second book in Brandon Sanderson's epic science fiction Mistborn Trilogy series. The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

As Kelsier's protégé and slayer of the Lord Ruler she is now venerated by a budding new religion, a distinction that makes her intensely uncomfortable. Even more worrying, the mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbor a strange vaporous entity that haunts her.

Stopping assassins may keep Vin's Mistborn skills sharp, but it's the least of her problems. Luthadel, the largest city of the former empire, doesn't run itself, and Vin and the other members of Kelsier's crew, who lead the revolution, must learn a whole new set of practical and political skills to help. It certainly won't get easier with three armies - one of them composed of ferocious giants - now vying to conquer the city, and no sign of the Lord Ruler's hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal. As the siege of Luthadel 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.

    An outstanding read. Tremendous narrating and Sanderson does an excellent job of keeping the thrill going and developing amazing back stories for all characters.

    Great book! Great Narrator! Voices really make the book come even more alive. Was glued to this book from beginning to end despite "slow" parts in middle. The author really knows how to keep your attention through the ENTIRE book. Already listening to Hero of Ages now.

    I absolutely love these books and the narrator is awesome. If you love fantasy books this is one of the best series I've read in a very long time. Sanderson has a wonderful imagination and he's an excellent writer.

    Normally I shy away from females protagonists in books, but this is absolutely inspiring. Great read/listen.

    I love the MistBorn series. However, book two is messed up. It skips chapters and chapters a head suddenly given away a huge plot point. ????
