The Well of Ascension - Brandon Sanderson
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!
