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.
