Mistborn: The Final Empire

Posted by

mistborn1.jpgImagine a fantasy story in which the hero loses to the villain and the villain rules the world for over a thousand years.  A thousand plus years later a group of thieves rise up to not destroy the villain, but to rob him of his wealth, which may lead to the villain’s financal collapse and lead his empire to ruin. 

 This is the story of Mistborn and so far it is a fascinating idea. Instead of typical magic, people born of the Mists have special powers called Allomancy, which allows them to ingest metals and “burn” them to accomplish a number of super human feats.  Mix in your fantasy elements along with a banking heist theme and you have an interesting book.  At first I was a little wary of the premise, but it is proven to be a good ride so far.
