The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

Series: book 2 of The Mistborn Trilogy

Genre: High Fantasy

Pages: 763

Rating: 4.5/5

I’m borrowing the Mistborn Trilogy from my brother I finished the Well of Ascension a few weeks ago, and I’m honesty quite impressed with myself for reading such a long book during term time (I’m not the fastest of readers). I read The Hero of Ages (book 1) in the summer holidays, but I rushed it and I don’t really remember much of what happened. This time I didn’t rush it so I enjoyed reading The Well of Ascension so much more than The Hero of Ages.

The story is so gripping and I could never predict what would happen next. I love the magic system and all the different creatures. The plot was so well put together. I do have one bugbear – that Brandon Sanderson used the word ‘gotten’ quite a lot, which I find very annoying (I know, so hard to please).

I’m really excited to continue with the series and find out what happens in The Hero of Ages, but it will have to wait a while as it’s still in my room at uni and I’m not sure I can commit to such a big book during exams.
