Three years before the story of Mistborn audiobook: The Final Empire begins, Kelsier, a half-skaa thief, discovers he is Mistborn and flees the Pits of Hathsin, the Lord Ruler’s harsh prison camp.

Brandon Sanderson’s language never gets in the way of the plot, and he’s marvelously capable of delivering huge stories in his accessible writing style. This is not to say that the story is without wisdom or significance. All of Sanderson’s books in the Cosmere universe included a lot of accessible wisdom that was easily applicable to our daily lives.
“Our belief is often strongest when it should be weakest. That is the nature of hope.”
Vin, a suspicious and mistreated street urchin, is recruited by Kelsier’s gang at the start of Mistborn audiobook: The Final Empire when his brother, Marsh, informs Kelsier that she is a Mistborn. Kelsier’s crew trains Vin to improve her Allomantic abilities, which include burning pewter to strengthen the body, burning tin to increase the senses, and burning steel and iron to obtain a restricted type of telekinesis over metal. She is also tasked with spying on the nobility by attending sumptuous parties in Luthadel, where she acts as Valette Renoux, the niece of Lord Renoux, a nobleman working with Kelsier’s group. During these balls, she meets and falls in love with Elend Venture, heir to the most powerful of the Luthadel noble houses, House Venture. Elend breaks nobility culture’s rules while secretly planning to construct a better society with his aristocratic pals when they accede to their different house titles. […]
Because of the characters’ friendliness and banter, you will find the narrative to be genuinely fascinating, relevant, and at times amusing. And you will be utterly enthralled by Sanderson’s world-building and magic system. All of these remain true upon rereading, but there’s a new great quality: all of the foreshadowing and clues are now laid naked for me to observe with the gift of hindsight. Mistborn audiobook: The Final Empire works wonderfully as a standalone, but trust me when I say there’s a lot more to the tale beyond this book. Everything you’re about to know here, even the minor facts, had a significant role in the subsequent sequels.
Mistborn audiobook: The Final Empire has an incredible world-building, fantastic character development, and, most importantly, a highly sophisticated magic system and actions. This is coming from someone who has seen a lot of magic (not genuine, of course) over the course of 20 years of gaming and watching anime/movies/television shows. The amount of information Sanderson placed into each word (not to mention how straightforward and easy to grasp it is) is mind-boggling.
