This amazing work makes the Christian figure of Lucifer, Satan, closer to humanity. While reading, readers may remember times when they felt the same with feelings of abandonment, being used, or a number of other situations in their own lives. The writing is poetic at times, making it fantastic to reader. Near the end the descriptions of battle get brutal and bloody, which may be a little over the top for some readers. I enjoyed reading this piece and I hope to see more from this author in the future.

The entire series has kept me on my toes and the conclusion of the series only solidified my enjoyment of this series. Sanderson's characters are all complex, as are their relationships. His ability to bring many storylines together for a final conclusion is something I don't see often and is refreshing to find. While I was reluctant to finish the series, I also couldn't wait to discover the end.

In the meantime, the Keeper Sazed, who had set out to learn more and spread knowledge in the kingdom discovers disturbing news. The Mists are killing people. And a mysterious location reveals clues as to the Lord Ruler's power.
Because the novel focused mainly on politics in the beginning I found it a slow start, but intrigue and danger soon took over. I enjoyed watching the evolving relationships between Vin and characters like Elend and OreSeur. The politics could be boring at times, but in the end the loose ends all come together making it worth paying attention. The action scenes are well-written, sometimes leaving me breathless as I listened to Vin and others fight against skilled enemies or large numbers of them.
I immediately started the next book in the series after finishing this one. I look forward to my commute every day because I get to listen to novels like this!
