I can't believe I waited so long to read this series. I can see why so many people consider Sanderson the best science fiction author of the last 2 decades. The ending was bittersweet, but not depressing. All the loose ends were tied up, all the important questions were answered, and none of it was in done in a quick patch-up way. The few unanswered questions are undoubtedly covered in the other books in this 'Cosmere' universe.

And on top of that, there is a follow up series that takes place 300 years after the events in the Mistborn trilogy. With all this amazing content written in a span of 10 years, it's difficult not to question how authors like G.R.R.Martin can take so long getting from one book to another.

The ending is fantastic, and didn't disappoint at all (as often happens with other good series).

I liked this book, there were a lot of twist and unexpected events. The ending felt a bit rushed though.

Brandon Sanderson hasn't disappointed me yet, and The Hero of Ages is another win-win to add to his resume.

Generally a worthwhile read but thought it got a bit too far beyond being credulous. Wasn't too keen on the ending.

Wow. What an end to a vast, complex series. Few authors can pull off such an ending, but Sanderson certainly is one of them. If you haven't read the first two in the Mistborn series — The Final Empire and The Well of Ascension — you must before you dive into this book, but if you have, be prepared fora surprising, yet satisfying ending. I am amazed at how he ties everything together, weaving all the loose ends, questions, prophesies, and characters together for a fitting conclusion that will last long in your mind. If you call yourself a fantasy lover, you must read this series. From the phenomenal magic system to the incredible characters to the meaningful moral dilemmas, this series is a masterpiece, with the Hero of Ages it's crowning jewel.

Mistborn is what I think one of the very best yet most underread book series. It's worth reading just for the third book, if not more! Totally blew my mind. Epic.

I love this book. It has a shocking and sad, yet powerful, meaningful and fulfilling ending.

If you have read the first two books, you will love this last book. It has the best ending for a fantasy that I have ever read, and I have read a lot of fantasy books. This is a definite favourite! If you love fantasy then you must read the Mistborn Trilogy.
