Mistborn: The Final Empire
BlurbMistborn: The Final Empire is a fantasy novel written by American author Brandon Sanderson. It was released in July 2006 and is the first novel in the Mistborn trilogy, followed by The Well of Ascension in 2007 and The Hero of Ages in 2008. Sanderson began work on the novel while trying to get his earlier novel Elantris published. After writing two early iterations, he shifted focus to his Stormlight series but chose to delay its publication in favor of completing the Mistborn series, as he thought it would serve as a better followup to Elantris.
