Inhaltsangabe

The impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protégé, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves.

As Kelsier's protégé and slayer of the Lord Ruler she is now venerated by a budding new religion, a distinction that makes her intensely uncomfortable. Even more worrying, the mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbor a strange vaporous entity that haunts her.Stopping assassins may keep Vin's Mistborn skills sharp, but it's the least of her problems.

Luthadel, the largest city of the former empire, doesn't run itself, and Vin and the other members of Kelsier's crew, who lead the revolution, must learn a whole new set of practical and political skills to help. It certainly won't get easier with three armies - one of them composed of ferocious giants - now vying to conquer the city, and no sign of the Lord Ruler's hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal.

As the siege of Luthadel 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.

wieder sehr empfehlenswert

auch in diesen teil habe ich etwas schwer hineingefunden. wieder hat mich dann die geschichte gefesselt und michael kramer als vorleser ist wie immer ganz hervorragend. sanderson lässt für die personen eine echte entwicklungs zu und seine strategischen wendungen der ereignisse um vin und den könig sind alles andere als vorhersehbar. gefällt mir sehr gut!

Let down...

I struggled to finish this book. While the undergirding story isn't bad at all, the constant harping on the mechanics of the magic system was irritating. The language was inconsistent, clunky at times and beautiful at others. Many of the visuals are fantastic. "And yet" the characters explain far too much, far too often, and it feels like the author is handholding the reader through the plot. People fell in love, but I didn't believe them. That being said, I enjoyed the twist at the end - partially because things were actually happening and you weren't bogged down in hours of conversation between characters.

When you thought you know...

Great continuation of the first book. Fantastic reader, good pacing. A bit slower in the middle but stepping up to the end. Excuse me, starting to listen part 3 now! :-)

Awesome story

In a sense of high fantasy a complete success - whenever the plots gets seemingly predictable everything changes ;D

Very enjoyable book

With stormlight chronicles the best series of Sanderson. I will definitively keep track of his books to come and surely listen to the third book of this series.
