Title: The Mistborn Trilogy

How to start... Well, I suppose I should start with how I got hooked on the books. You see, my mom's family knew the authour Brandon Sanderson, when he was gtwing up. My aunt knew I liked fantasy books and got the first one Mistborn: The Final Empire for me.

I eventually got a round to it, the prolouge was a bir dry but after that it really picked up. The series take place in a world where the Sun has turned red and ash fall from the sky, the world is ruled by an oppressive tyrnt known as the Lord Ruler who ascended to godhood and defeated the evil Deepness a thousand years prior.

The majority of the people slaves are called "skaa". The skaa have been beaten by nolemen for centuries, all rebellions have faild, yet in small circles hpoe survives.

In the city of Luthadel Vin, a half-skaa girl who's lived in thiving crews as long as she rembers is found by Kelsier "The Survior of Hathsin" and finds out that see like him is a Mistborn, a person who can use the powers of all Allomantic metals. She is recruited by Kelsier tand joins of his thieving crew made mostly of of Half-skaa Allomancers. (Such people not shouldn't have esisted do to breeding laws. Allomancy was meant for nobllemen.) Vin will have to lear about her newfound powers quickly because she and thed rest of the crew are going to attempt to do the most brave and/or foolish thing possible: try to overthrow a god. The thing is, it so crazy it just might work... That's just my summary of Book 1.

The stroy is a lot of political manipulation and spying with action scenes and romace mixed in. (Not to much romance though.) The character's are deep and devolp well and the best part is you don't know what's coming next.

So, these people come up with a plot to overcome a man that ascended to a god?

You should check it out. The man's my hero. He's from my hometown and is sucessful at what I want to do. He's living proof it can be done. My mom used to babysit him too, apparently we're a lot alike.

UPDATE: I finished book three, Hero of Ages last night. It really helped take my mind off of all the crap that was going on. (Gee, that was ironic word choice considering...) Anyway, it's just as awesome as the other two and comes highly recomended from me.
