Vin, the street urchin who has grown into the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and Elend Venture, the idealistic young nobleman who loves her, must build a healthy new society in the ashes of an empire. Three separate armies attack. As the siege tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.

Lexi Hi Caroline,

I started this today on the train. It is fairly serious so far. The Watcher is interesting but I miss the heist planning aspect.

I also found the book really slow at the start. I like later that they remind one that Vin is a teenager but at that same time all her romantic angst seems out of place.

Me too. I did have a few issues with the ending and with it seeming to retcon some of the Lord Ruler's actions. (view spoiler)

Bah! I started reading Alaina's review of book 3, but I had to stop myself. I trust in her 5-star review. I'd like to read it in Sept too. Maybe toward the middle??


Caroline | 2101 comments Jennifer do you think you will want to read 4-6 also? I have read 1-3, but I would join a series thread in September.

Eventually, yes! Perhaps we can try for one book per month?


Caroline | 2101 comments Okay. I’ve got a lot coming up in October, so I probably shouldn't promise any BRs for then.
