The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson: Book Review

I’m back! This week is going to be jam packed with blog posts so I hope you are ready for some blog greatness, haha!

Today I’m reviewing the second book in the Mistborn series! I am loving this series and probably will be picking up book three in March or April! Like usual I don’t like to give much away for plot, and of course, spoilers. But bear in mind this is book 2. This series centres around a world where the bad guy won a thousand years ago. Lord Ruler controls and suppressed different groups. Some people are lucky enough to have the power to control metal. Some can only control one type like tin, while a small group can control all metals (Goodreads).

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Once again Brandon Sanderson blew me away with his writing. The book picks up only a few months after the end of The Final Empire. I can’t believe how much Sanderson can fit into the book so seamlessly. I have never read a book, let alone a series with so much politics and actually enjoy it. He crafted such an excellent story, complex characters, and mind-blowing twists.

I don’t usually feel torn with so many characters and their decisions. There was so much ambiguity that it was hard to see what was the right decision. I had to just trust the characters and let the chips fall where they may. Sometimes things went well, sometimes they didn’t.

As always, thanks for reading!
