Bibliophilia (19): The Hero of Ages (Mistborn #3)


Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Well, this book has been quite a journey. A very intricately-woven, emotionally-charged trek. I’m impressed by Sanderson’ writing.

I had some difficulty, however, relating to that cosmic turn of events; the clash of gods and divine powers. I would have loved a more human conflict, or rather a more believable villain (at least to me), for unlike the author portrayed, I believe gods make no mistakes. Gods don’t fail. And most importantly, if you’re fighting the end of the world, an apocalypse, there’s no stopping it. Some ends are bound to happen eventually.

Nice try though. Now off to a new journey.

Powerful. Vivid. Beautiful.

It’s been a very long while since the last time I couldn’t put a book down. Sanderson just knows how to “Pull” (pun-intended) you into the picturesque world of his.

There were times, however, when I thought I couldn’t see much into Kelsier’s character, but as it turns out, it was the very thing Sanderson intended.

I was a little annoyed by a few monotonous lines and some overused words, but meh, it’s nothing against the piece of art this book is.
