This book. What can I possibly say about THIS book? ALL THE EMOTIONS IN THE WORLD.

Before I start, I just want to say that I’d like to think of myself as a coherent, somewhat intelligent individual; but this review will probably prove otherwise.

Never before have I read a series so emotionally effective, captivating, and jaw-droppingly epic such as this. This third and final book alone is a masterpiece in itself. As soon as I read the last remaining words and numbly closed the book, my heart ached. My chest hurt. My mind was in a complete state of shock. Not even my emotions I could properly place.

Quotes Jamie Liked

Brandon Sanderson
“Elend smiled. "Oh, come on. You have to admit that you're unusual, Vin. You're like some strange mixture of a noblewoman, a street urchin, and a cat. Plus, you've mangaged - in our short three years together - to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiancée. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“Elend: "Each moment you fight is a gift to those in this cavern. Each second we fight is a second longer that thousands of people can draw breath. Each stroke of the sword, each koloss felled, each breath earned is another victory! It is a person protected for a moment longer, a life extended, an enemy frusturated!"
There was a brief pause.
"In the end they shall kill us. But first they shall fear us!”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“It's a mystery," Vin said, narrowing her eyes and smiling. "We Mistborn are incredibly mysterious."
Elend paused." Um...I'm Mistborn too, Vin. That doesn't make any sense."
"We Mistborn need not make sense," Vin said." It's beneath us. Come on-the sun's already down. We need to get moving.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“Faith means that it doesn't matter what happens. You can trust that somebody is watching. Trust that somebody will make it all right.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“Elend started. "Vin!" Then, he smiled. "What took you so long?"
"I got delayed by an Inquistor and a dark god," she said. "Now hustle.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“For now, I only wish to make a simple acknowledgement of the woman who held the power just before me.
Of all of us who touched it, I feel she was the most worthy.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“Spook: No, I'm not troubled. In fact, I actually think everything is going to be all right. Finally.”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages

Brandon Sanderson
“You've managed-- in our short three years together-- to kill not only my god, but my father, my brother, and my fiance. That's kind of like a homicidal hat trick. It's a strange foundation for a relationship, wouldn't you say?”
Brandon Sanderson, The Hero of Ages
