Book two of the Stormlight Archive. From the best-selling author who completed Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series comes a new, original creation that matches anything else in modern fantasy for epic scope, thrilling imagination, superb characters, and sheer addictiveness. Return to a planet swept by apocalyptic storms, a world tipping into war as aristocratic families move to control the shard blades and shard plates, ancient artifacts from a past civilisation that can win wars.

Sanderson stepped it up again with book 2 of the Stormlight Archive, a series which has been absorbing, suspenseful, heatfelt and exciting. His ability to transport you into this alternate reality where the physical and spiritual realms intertwine proves he is truly one of the finest authors in this genre. Wonderful characters, thrilling action - I highly recommend this series

A stunning and intense conclusion to a wonderful trilogy. As always it can take a bit of time building up but really comes home strong. Once again a perfect narration from Michael Kramer

The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead. But so too is Kelsier, the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin - a onetime street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land. Worryingly for her, Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy.

A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families, and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields. But now a troublemaker has arrived, and there is rumour of revolt.

Worthwhile persevering through the slowish start as the characters ger fleshed out well and the story becomes quite absorbing. I thought the narration was terrific, really set the mood perfectly
