Beanbag Love

I read. I write. I talk about reading and writing. That is when I'm not driving kids somewhere or teaching them. Married, educated, domesticated. I really enjoy the friends I've met through a variety of different message boards and venues regarding reading and authors. I try to take a positive view when I write reviews but sometimes I can't. Those times are few and far between, but they do exist. I'm mostly an old softy, though. I think so anyway.

The Hero of Ages - Brandon Sanderson Brilliant. This is the final installment of the epic fantasy series "The Mistborn Trilogy" by Brandon Sanderson. As with all other epic fantasy I've read, it's not easy. It's stressful and emotional, but, unlike some other epic fantasy I've read, the occasional pain is totally worth it.

There are many reviews for this trilogy already and I'm sure they run the gamut. I won't go into a lot of detail in this review because I'm certain it's all been covered from many different POVs. I'm just so glad I found the first book -- "Mistborn" -- in the UBS because it launched me on this journey.
