Series: Mistborn #1
Once, a hero rose to save the world. He failed.
For a thousand years since, the world has been a wasteland of ash and mist ruled by the immortal emperor known as the Lord Ruler. Every revolt has failed miserably.
Yet somehow, hope survives. Hope that dares to dream of ending the empire and defeating the Lord Ruler. A new kind of uprising is being planned—one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the determination of an unlikely heroine: a teenage street urchin named Vin.
Once, a hero rose to save the world and failed. This time, can a young heroine succeed?
If you've read other positive reviews of Mistborn, what I am going to say is probably no different. But for what it's worth this is coming from someone who is not a fantasy reader--I've read maybe two other epic fantasy this year. I enjoy and have enjoyed epic fantasy novels in the past but my genre of choice is contemporary and I am more likely to reach for contemporary more than anything else.
But I freakin' I love this book. I'm giving it
I'm only on chapter 3 of Mistborn and I'm already having #mistbornfeels. OMG!! It's my new Harry Potter!
