Book Overview: Mistborn: The Final Empire

Now with over 10 million copies sold, The Mistborn Series has the thrills of a heist story, the twistiness of political intrigue, and the epic scale of a landmark fantasy saga.

For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison. Kelsier "snapped" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark.

Kelsier recruited the underworld's elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot.

But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. Like him, she's a half-Skaa orphan, but she's lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed.

This saga dares to ask a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails?

The intrigue and excitement grow steadily in this smoothly written, perfectly balanced narrative; by the end readers won't want to put it down. . . . Sanderson is a writer to watch." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review on Elantris

Born on December 19, 1975, in Lincoln, Nebraska, Brandon Sanderson is an American author renowned globally for his high fantasy works. Known for his intricate magic systems and well-developed characters, Sanderson stands as a household name in the realm of fantasy literature. He rose to unprecedented fame with his New York Times bestselling series, Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive, and his significant contribution to the successful completion of the late Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series. Sanderson's journey to becoming a prolific author began from Brigham Young University, where he received his Bachelor's degree in English. After a brief stint with biochemistry, he realized his true calling laid in the art of storytelling, prompting him to pursue a Master's degree in Creative Writing. In 2005, he published his debut work, Elantris, which received critical acclaim and signaled his arrival in the literary scene. Beyond his solo creations, Sanderson is revered for his commendable effort in continuing Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series after the author's sudden demise. Not only did he manage to retain the series' essence, but he also gave it a fitting conclusion that was praised by critics and fans alike. Today, alongside triumphing over diverse literary genres, Sanderson remains passionately involved in teaching creative writing at his Alma mater, Brigham Young University.
