Danae Same here! I might have been holding it through the whole book though.

Nicholas Talty Haha, I had to keep reminding myself to breathe as I listened. I was really happy with the ending though! I can't wait to see what Sanderson did with Shadows of Self!

Nicholas Talty Does**

Robin (Bridge Four) YAY!!! I'm so glad you loved this book. I'm with you Nicholas I sped through it because it was such an emotional, spectacular finale.

Have you already read Alloy of Law?

Nicholas Talty I haven't yet. I started it tonight. I'm trying to keep my expectations realistic, which will be hard coming off the high of Hero. Am I in for another fantastically engrossing story?!

Robin (Bridge Four) Yes, but with just a little more humor, maybe a little less intense.

It is so cool to see how the lore from the Mistborn trilogy has evolved. Be sure to read the newspaper stories to the beginning of the part or chapters. I can't really remember where they were.
