Mistborn: The Final Empire - Brandon Sanderson WOW! What a fantastic book. I LOVED it.

However, it did take me a while to get into the story. I almost gave up in the very beginning. I would advise anyone that has the same problem to keep reading it. It's a fantastic read. One of the BEST epic fantasy books I ever read. Maybe even the best one. Read it. You won't regret it.
