The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Read the full prologue!

So I listen to audiobooks at work, I've recently completed;

The Kingkiller Chronicles
Farseer Trilogy (hated this one to be honest, way too depressing)
Mistborn Trilogy, and just finished Alloy of Law.

Two things bothered me.

One, He seemed to tease you with bits of information about the old characters, but never really went in depth. I was always waiting for more interaction with them. Deep thought processes about how the names and such were chosen, or something more substantial

Two, book seemed to end halfway through. When the book said "Epilogue" I was like...WTF? Epilogue? Then it went on a long time and I was decently satisfied.

Anyway, thank god he announced he is writing a sequel to it.

I think his distance from the old series is deliberate. He wanted these mistborn adventures to stand on their own as much as possible, and if they depended to heavily on older books, it would mean people had to read the trilogy first before reading them.

As for the ending, I completely agree. Endings like that one are the reason I prefer stand-alones and trilogies to open-ended series. The episodic stories are fun, but the endings can be quite frustrating. However, I love Brandon's writing and the world he's created on scadriel, so I enjoyed the book enough that I'm willing to forgive the limitations of the genre he is choosing to write them in.

I've never read the Farseer series, but I read the Soldier Son trilogy, also by Robin Hobb, and her style wasn't my favourite either, to be honest. I absolutely adore the kingkiller chronicle though, so I'm glad to see other people are reading it!

I am also an audioreader (I can be seen misspelling names occasionally e.g."Elland" , but will have a hard time talking to someone who says "Tek-i-el" instead of "Ti-ki-el" )

I have absolutely no problem with anything mistborn. Well, I do. Mostly things like the use of flared gold or copper compounding, but not the writing. But there were very few books I couldn't read through, and not many which I completed only to be disappointed (either in myself or the book), so I am not the perfect judge.

Alloy of Law is awesome and it is much loved throughout my entire family(including my little brother who cosplays Wayne now). I'm really super excited for the sequel.

My sister basically forced me to read the Farseer trilogy. While it was decent, I honestly couldn't feel much for anyone except Regal, the Fool, and Nighteyes. Robin Hobb's writing style is just to distant. Oh, and I hate Molly, but I often forget that she was ever part of it. I do intend to read the Fool trilogy(just because of the Fool, actually), but that will be after I read the Foundation books and finish rereading LotR.

KINGKILLERRRRR. Those books are awesome. Seriously. Are the audiobooks good? I listen to audiobooks to go to sleep(it helps my paranoia stop yelling at me) and sort of need a new one to add to my rotation. I've started to memorize the books I do listen to.

Mozy, you're so lucky to have an entire family who has your taste! Please do invite them to RP with us, I think it'd be great, especially since they really can help rejuvenate this site. So that it'd be a juvenile kid.

My father introduced me to both audioreading and Sanderson. He is, in fact, the only one I know to do either. Well, except me... My first audiobooks were 10 and 11 of Robin Hobb's Elderling realm (the same one as Farseer and Tawny man. I read 1-9 in written Hebrew), neglecting 12 and 13 because they were not out yet. I never took her up again. I would not recommend reading Tawny man before Liveships. Also, I must mention that Tawny follows Fitz again.

My father introduced me to Mistborn (AB, again), and I spread through all the Cosmere. Love it. The Nalthis narrator is not so good (one of the reasons I hold it with the least respect), and Elantris's narrator is pretty cool. WoT (of which I read 1-6 and half of 7, but cannot remember) has Michael Kramer and Kate Reading (pron. Redding), who also do Stormlight (love it!). Mistborn, although centering on a female figure, somehow has only Kramer as narrator, but this works so storming well!

Note: Kramer and Reading pronounce "Sadeas" differently. On the only occasion you hear Reading say it, you will be vastly confused and slightly annoyed.

No idea what Kingkiller is... Sorry. Same for foundation, unless you refer to Asimov, who has raised me, along with Potter, Ender, Rama and Dent.

Oh yes, I do indeed refer to Asimov. They're some of my mother's favorite books.

And yes. My little brother(the Wayne cosplayer) really wants to join.

Well, is he joining?

I have read so much Asimov, that when, in Rama 3, I read that there are robots which kill, I just put the book down and walked away. It just feels as wrong as can be for a classic SF literature piece to have non-Asimov robotic laws. Seems unacceptable. Perhaps in films or newer literature, but Rama? No.

I am getting a WoK signed in Alethi women's script soon... Both to have in my room, and so that I can lure a friend or two into Sandersonia. Do you have any witty line suggestions?

Witty lines? From the book? Maybe something from Shallon? Alcatraz has some pretty hilarious witty quotes as well, if you don't care what Sanderson book it's from.

Anything witty or funny about SA. Like "hope a koloss eats you" or something, but related to the book. A quote is not preferable, because I can find those as well. I did not read anything non-cosmere, and the only ones I do remember are Elantris, WoA and all Mistborn.

All of you non-here folk are welcome to join in!
