Thoughts: I love Brandon Sanderson's writing and am working on reading all of his books. I have to say that the Mistborn series is my least favourite of his books' and this is just because it has more of a focus on politics than the others and I feel as though I have already heard so much about the magic system from other people that it just doesn't feel as special any more.

That being said, I am still thoroughly enjoying the Mistborn series.  I feel as though my thoughts on this book are going to be quite short as this is the third book and so it's the conclusion of this trilogy so I really don't want to give too much away.

This book has a lot more action scenes and while I don't usually like those scenes so much, I feel like Brandon Sanderson does a good job of making battle scenes being interesting and well worth reading.

In terms of the ending I felt like while I didn't guess who the ending would involve I did have some ideas that it would go that way.  Although I have to say, I would have preferred The Hero of Ages to be someone else but who it was, is also someone I was happy with.

The Hero of Ages was a good book and I always enjoy reading Brandon Sanderson's books.  I'm glad that the magic system did have more depth than what other people had described it to be and I am very much excited to continue on with the series.  I'm looking forward to reading The Alloy of Law in anticipation of the next book coming out later this year.
