The Mistborn Series, by Brandon Sanderson, first released in 2007 and reprinted for Young Adult Readers in 2014 is a stunning example of epic fantasy, world building and unforgettable characters. The story begins with an empire in which the chosen hero was defeated by the immortal Lord Ruler who has now reigned for 1000 years. The only hope our heroes have of vanquishing their enemy is utilizing the magic system of Allomancy. Allomancy grants certain individuals special and enhanced abilities dependent upon various types of metals. As Mistborn, the dashing, ever optimistic Kelsier and the young orphan Vin have the power to use them all. I absolutely adore everything about this series, from the characters to the plot line. It kept me guessing and was such an immersive experience that I never wanted to leave the world behind. An edge of your seat experience that you can't possibly put down, it is utterly brilliant. With the next volume (Shadows of Self) being released this year, now is the perfect time to get started on this absolutely amazing series. Mistborn is a spectacular, ever growing experience and one of the most enjoyable series I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Do yourself a huge favor and dive in!
