About this deal

Spook was devoted to Kelsier, and both had broken spirits but had resisted Ruin, building a strong Connection between them. Here is hoping we get more about the other characters in this novel, especially the galactic beings that seem to travel between worlds. While trying to get to Vin, Kelsier learns a little about Hemalurgy and how the spikes give Ruin power over those with spikes. The Final Empire surprised a lot of people by killing him off, and while Brandon's been hinting to fans that he was hanging around on the Cognitive through Hero of Ages for literally years, the loss of Kelsier as a focal character seemed like a certainty.

The MC here is Kelsier so if you are a fan of him, you should not miss this book as it explains a lot of thing and adds character growth to already existent ones.Moreover, he chose Spook - the kid who was very, very traumatized by being spiked and manipulated by Ruin - as his partner in crime. Comes back to manipulate the youngest one into doing human experimentation so he can get a living body again.

Brandon Sanderson is such a talented author, and seeing him talk about this elaborate universe that he has created, with his stories that link it all together, made me awestruck. Alright, I'm gonna say it: you really shouldn't read this book unless you've read most, if not all, of the rest of the Cosmere. Kelsier rummages around and finds a book describing a device that can enable someone to Ascend when Preservation dies. Trying and failing to contact Vin because of Ruin's interference and his inexperience with Preservation's powers, Kelsier decides to instead travel to Urteau and succeeds in freeing Spook from Ruin's influence.

I made the mistake of reading this after Rhythm of War, thinking it just some filler fan service for Survivor cultists. However, Elantrians aren't supposed to age, and these ones have and what's more, are known for it, since their organization's name means 'age'. Kelsier is led by the thread of light to a city square full of beggars and once again meets Hoid, who shocks him but otherwise ignores Kelsier. Vin and Elend's arrival at the Well gives Kelsier hope that he will be able to get through to her, but as a cognitive aspect with no connection to the Physical Realm, he can't, so Kelsier takes Leras's knife and stabs Elend as the mist spirit to motivate Vin to use the power to save Elend.

Como ya dije, este relato abarca mucho del Cosmere, y eso lo transforma en un pilar importantísimo en su concepción. In the end, it only caused more deaths after the Inquisitors came -- just like the death of the Lord Ruler, who would have prevented Ruin from coming, will cause more deaths. Through these, he learns of Marsh's survival as a Steel Inquisitor and that Elend has become the new ruler of the Final Empire.Kelsier: The famed Survivor of Hathsin, a half-skaa Mistborn who led a revolution against the Lord Ruler. As the Koloss die, they enter Kelsier's realm, and he is shocked to see that they are human from all walks of life. in the Mistborn series, it is advisable to read it after book 6 (The Bands of Mourning) due to some minor spoilers. He is the leader of the ghost bloods and seems to be working towards something grand (more grand than ascending to a God it seems). Kelsier then tries to fight Ruin, but is unsuccessful, as his status as Cognitive Shadow is not enough to overcome the Intent of the shard to preserve.
