The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

Sanderson, Brandon - Finished Mar 04, 2016

Run-on Sentence Summary

After doing the impossible and defeating the Lord Ruler, Vin struggles to come in to her own identity as a Mistborn hero, and hold together her fledgling empire.


I was wondering where the story would go after such a monumental finish to the first book. The second in the series picks it up well, and the momentum never stops building. Sanderson is extremely prolific and seems to have the ability to pop out 600 page books every day, and it is remarkable that the stories remain so compelling. He isn’t the greatest writer alive, but these plot driven books are fun and enticing and I immediately started the third book as soon as I finished this one.

Final Thoughts

My critique of the first book that it is shallow and clearly aimed at a young audience still holds, but who cares? They are so fun!
