    The beginning of the trilogy that sparked my love for reading fantasy novels. It?s been exactly one year ten months since I first joined Goodreads or started reading The Final Empire, September 1st, 2016 to be exact. This is an extremely important book for me and the more I tried ...

    Oh my gosh. I have tears in my eyes. This was by far one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read. I don't even know how I'm going to function enough to give this a worthy review. Brandon Sanderson, you have rocked my world. Seriously, if you want to try a high fantasy but you...

    4.5 stars. I kept stalling on reading this because so many people told me I'd love it. I was worried the hype would be a letdown, but nope... this was SO GOOD. The last half was AMAZING and feels like a new favorite book, buuuut I honestly didn't get into it until around 40%. There...

    This was an odd one for me. I've seen an enormous number of opinions about Sanderson's books on the fantasy forums I hang out on, the great majority favourable. I was interested to see what it was that had sold so very many books and got such an incredibly high average score on Goodrea...

    MOTHER. FUCKING. FANTASTIC. The writing, the story, the characters, the world, the magic, the battle scenes. All fantastic! _ A beautifully intricate plot that includes, that's right!... A heist! (A heist?) Anyway, if that alone isn?t a reason enough, I don?t know what is. ?...

    This is an epic fantasy series and The Final Empire, the first book in the trilogy is, in itself, epic. A world oppressed by a dark ruler sees a thieving group take upon the mantels of heroes. This, along with the help of their mystical power, Alomancy, determines the fate of the Mistb...

    This book was wonderful and fantastic and amazing! It?s one of the best fantasy books that I?ve read. I hope I can do this book justice with my review. So bear with me while I ramble away. The main character of the book is Vin, a street orphan who has never known friendship or t...

    Never in my life have I ever felt an incredible amount of disappointment that this book gave me. I'm literally so fucking bitter and salty that I didn't enjoy this hyped as fuck book that no one has ever written a single negative review for. I'M SEETHING. I WANTED TO LOVE THIS ONE S...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars This was my book club's pick of the month! I can't even believe this was so good. I mean I can, because it's Brandon Sanderson! But seriously... This was an excellent high fantasy novel. I'm going to try to put my feelings into words, but I find I have a...

    Oh my gosh. I have tears in my eyes. This was by far one of the best fantasy novels I've ever read. I don't even know how I'm going to function enough to give this a worthy review. Brandon Sanderson, you have rocked my world. Seriously, if you want to try a high fantasy but you...

    4.5 stars. I kept stalling on reading this because so many people told me I'd love it. I was worried the hype would be a letdown, but nope... this was SO GOOD. The last half was AMAZING and feels like a new favorite book, buuuut I honestly didn't get into it until around 40%. There...

    This was an odd one for me. I've seen an enormous number of opinions about Sanderson's books on the fantasy forums I hang out on, the great majority favourable. I was interested to see what it was that had sold so very many books and got such an incredibly high average score on Goodrea...

    It reminds me of Ocean's Eleven meets The Italian Job, but set in Mordor after Sauron has ruled for 1000 years or so. In many fantasy stories, a dark lord is rising and it is up to our heroes to defeat him before that happens. In this, the Dark Lord is already set in place as the statu...

    MOTHER. FUCKING. FANTASTIC. The writing, the story, the characters, the world, the magic, the battle scenes. All fantastic! _ A beautifully intricate plot that includes, that's right!... A heist! (A heist?) Anyway, if that alone isn?t a reason enough, I don?t know what is. ?...

    This is an epic fantasy series and The Final Empire, the first book in the trilogy is, in itself, epic. A world oppressed by a dark ruler sees a thieving group take upon the mantels of heroes. This, along with the help of their mystical power, Alomancy, determines the fate of the Mistb...

    This book was wonderful and fantastic and amazing! It?s one of the best fantasy books that I?ve read. I hope I can do this book justice with my review. So bear with me while I ramble away. The main character of the book is Vin, a street orphan who has never known friendship or t...

    I am dead. I bought this book in January after hearing so much hype around it and I attempted to read this book at least 10 times since then. I got about 20 pages in each time before I got intimidated and put it on hold. FINALLY, I decided to pick it back up again and push through ...

    Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars This was my book club's pick of the month! I can't even believe this was so good. I mean I can, because it's Brandon Sanderson! But seriously... This was an excellent high fantasy novel. I'm going to try to put my feelings into words, but I find I have a...

    ?The trick is to never stop looking. There?s always another secret.? Guys, what the fuck I'm 9000% sure that Sanderson practices Black magic. I have never felt SO conflicted over a book in my entire existence. No, I'm fully convinced that this is a product of bl...
