Publisher’s Summary

Brandon Sanderson, fantasy’s newest master tale spinner, author of the acclaimed debut Elantris, dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises and magical martial-arts action that begins in Mistborn.For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the “Sliver of Infinity,” reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler’s most hellish prison.

Kelsier “snapped” and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld’s elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel’s plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life.

Like him, she’s a half-Skaa orphan, but she’s lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed.

Fan art i snagged off of pinterst. Apparently there is quite the following for the Misborn series.
the thing i'll mist the most as i start the well of ascension is just kelsier and vin being a great pseudo father-daughter relationship⠀ .⠀…
Vin
Okay so I am a HUGE fan of Brandon Sanderson’s books I will probably be writing a lot of reviews for his books on my blog. The way that (for lack of a better word) magic is done in the Mistborn books is very Unique and I really enjoyed the sort of Cinderella story of Vin the female protagonist. It is Dark and not for young children. There is also light swearing and killing throughout the whole series. I loved seeing the transformation of Vin’s character throughout the whole series and it was very refreshing to see a female former slave break away from the conformists and become raw power (yay GIRL POWER).
