Five years ago Corin Cadence's brother entered the Serpent Spire - a colossal tower with ever-shifting rooms, traps, and monsters. Those who survive the spire's trials return home with an attunement: a mark granting the bearer magical powers. According to legend, those few who reach the top of the tower will be granted a boon by the spire's goddess. He never returned. Now it's Corin's turn. He's headed to the top floor, on a mission to meet the goddess.

The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series, his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action and his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time sequence. But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction.

This book couldn't be summed up in just a few words it was the perfect ending to this part of the story. The story itself was just beautiful, Brandon Sanderson is fantastic he manages to make there stories gritty and heart wrenching but at the same time light hearted and cheerful. The performance by Michael Kramer is also amazing he manages to pull you into these worlds in just a few words and his intensity at points give the story a sharp edge that is incredible. If you haven't started this story please do.
