Présentation de l'éditeur

For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn trilogy is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action. The saga dares to ask a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails?

Includes:

Mistborn -- Kelsier, a brilliant thief has turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler as the mark. Kel's plan is the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into the fold. But she will have to learn to trust if she is to master powers of which she never dreamed.

The Well of Ascension -- Evil has been defeated; the war has just begun. Vin, the street urchin who has become the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and Elend Venture, the idealistic young nobleman who loves her, must build a healthy new society in the ashes of an empire.

The Hero of Ages -- The Deepness has returned, along with unusually heavy ashfalls and powerful earthquakes. Humanity appears to be doomed. Vin and Eland investigate the past to save the future, and in the end, sacrifices must be made.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Un des meilleurs livres de fantasy que j'ai pu lire jusqu'à maintenant, on se laisse emporter du début à la fin et on ne peut que dévorer de plus en plus ce livre au fur et à mesure qu'on avance dans l'histoire. Et une fin plus qu'inattendue.
Après ça, je ne sais pas quel livre va pouvoir m'embarquer aussi loin que celui-là..

Voila le genre de livre qui réussit à vous captiver tout en vous agaçant très sérieusement. De ces trois tomes réunis, le premier est à mon gout le meilleur, puis l'agacement prend plus souvent le dessus.
Ceci dit, je les ai dévorés, car malgré les quelques défauts agaçants, on reste sur de la très bonne SF.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not perfect, but still easy to recommend to fans of fantasy. 1 octobre 2011
Par B. W. Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Brandon Sanderson has made a name for himself as someone who writes excellent fantasy -and- subverts fantasy tropes. I say 'and' instead of 'by' or 'through', because trope subversion could be a gimmick in the wrong hands. In Sanderson's stories the breaking of tropes is a feature, but not what sells the story; he still creates strong, interesting characters and devotes the book to a clever plot with lots of twists.

The Mistborn trilogy encapsulates what Sanderson is famous for. The premise is unusual - instead of following the rise of a hero to fight the forces of darkness, it leaves us with a band of thieves in the world after the hero has failed, and what remains of a scarred land is under the dominion of the oppressive Lord Ruler. The party of characters are all essentially reversals of expectations, but in a nontrivial way. The hidden princess is the rescuer, not the rescuee. The tough is the philosopher. The true hero, when he finally appears at the end of the story, seems almost a sideswiping afterthought, yet the groundwork for his apotheosis was seeded from early in the series. The magic system is unique, and is based around the burning of specific metals by "allomancers".

What's good: Originality. Above everything else, the series has a lot of originality going for it. I imagine in 10 years it won't seem so original, as it spins its own derivatives and tropes, but for now it feels fresh. The characters are appealing ubermen, but still feel believable and sympathetic. By the end even the Lord Ruler is empathetic. There are enough twists and turns through the story that even if you're good at guessing ahead, you'll still likely have plenty of surprises to keep you entertained.

What's bad: Worldbuilding. I'm the kind of reader who -does- like worldbuilding in fantasy and sci-fi - I like the worlds to be treated like characters, with their own backstories and interesting features, to have attention devoted to them, but in these stories the worldbuilding often felt a little too transparent, a little too overdone. The amount they know about the workings of the world and their magic feels a little too analytical, a bit to "scientific" to fit with the rest of the story. And perhaps because the worldbuilding draws attention to itself, sometimes the gaps feel especially obvious. A person can burn one metal or all the metals, but not two or three - why? When everything else is explained, why does this seemingly arbitrary rule just get tossed around. Why do tin, gold, and copper burn, but not lead or silver? How does destruction plus preservation equal creation? Also, they're pretty darned long.

The takeaway: Despite the occasional clunkiness, the books are very entertaining, and kept me reading eagerly until I was through them all. They aren't perfect, and probably won't appeal to people who don't already like fantasy, but I recommend them still. They would make a great TV miniseries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A thoughly engaging read, the plots twists and turns have me wishing I could read this for the first time all over again. 31 août 2015
Par Joval E. Rama - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Mistborn Trilogy is the series that got me reading Brandon Sanderson's books. As to how I even heard about it, I think I read it in a blog somewhere promoting it as the story of a fantasy world where the "Dark Lord" who is called the Lord Ruler had won. As a fantasy reader who is so used to the story of fighting the "Dark Lord" it came as a refreshing break to read a story of what comes after if the heroes failed, so I felt that I just had to read this book.

Setting:
Fast forward 1000 years into the future and we are treated to a world where ash regularly falls from the sky lit by a red sun over a land covered by brown plants. It is not really a very pleasant place. Unlike the places in other stories I've read, this is not one I'd like to visit. What impresses me about it is that it is quite a departure from the usual fantasy setting that essentially boils down to Medieval Europe + Magic = Fantasy World. What's even more impressive is that Sanderson has really made all these unique aspects of his setting fit into the story. No, the world is not just dark and gloomy for the heck of it, there is actually a reason that is revealed in the third book along with a twist that had me shifting my opinion on the Lord Ruler.

Mood:
The world and the people as portrayed could have easily made this trilogy a dark/grim-dark tale. The lives of the skaa, the common people, have little value and you get to see how they are killed dismissively by the ruling class. There is actually a rule that nobles and skaa cannot interbreed so what the nobles did was that they were actually required to kill the skaa women that they bed. Also, one of the magic systems used involves a ritualistically torturous process to work properly. For all that, this is actually a hopeful story. The dead bodies tend to pile up, but it is never the focus of the story. I guess the difference is that we don't get to look through a cynic's perspective like we do in books like George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. For all their personal struggles, the heroes are still heroic.

Characters:
Looking into our characters, the first two books of the trilogy can actually be seen as a coming-of-age tale for the main protagonist, Vin, who struggles with the idea of trust as she learns to understand what it means to have friends. It is about her empowerment as she learns to wield the powers of a mistborn. And finally, there is also her struggle with identity. Her powers, while making her powerful, also makes her very useful, which creates conflict in that she finds herself wondering if she is simply valued for what she can do as opposed to her being valued as a person. For all the world altering events taking place in the books, what I really like with the books is that it is grounded as a character-driven story.

Magic:
Sanderson is known for his magic systems. He tends to build them from simple concepts to create some really incredible effects through their varies interactions. The approach is along the lines of "magic as a science" so people who favor the idea of magic being dark and mysterious would dislike his systems. In Mistborn, there are three magic systems all tied to metals. In Allomancy, an Allomancer can use metals to wield powers the simply allow one to push or pull at something. That's it. The other systems are equally simple. What's really interesting is that Sanderson is clever enough to surprise me with the different ways the various magics are used. From a simple push or pull, we have people 'flying' around in the night.

Verdict:
Though the premise of the first book, that of the Dark Lord having triumphed, along with his clever magic system that deviates from the trope of complex spells and mysterious ways would certainly set this trilogy apart from other fantasy, that should not be the reason to pick up this book. You should read this because it is a well-written and well-executed piece of literature. There are those who call Sanderson out on using simple, transparent prose, but I really think it necessary that such a writing style is used to depict the fast-paced, action-packed sequences that are spread around in the books. Fancy wordcraft would just get in the way. In the end, are novels about finely constructed paragraphs or are they about exquisitely crafted stories?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Last two books were boring 25 juillet 2011
Par J. Sylvestre - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The first book I'd give 5 stars. You don't need to bother reading the last two. I don't mind the digital being more that twice the cost of the paperback version. This got two stars from me because the middle book and about 2/3rds of the last book were tedious (almost painfully boring) to read. And as someone else mentioned, the characters role their eyes too much.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 At times I wanted to leave....glad I stuck around 13 juillet 2015
Par S. Rodger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As I understand it this was Sandersons first work. It is often inconsistent . At times it wants to be a fast paced fantasy thriller. Other times it becomes a young adult saga. Way too often it presents as a Philosophy 101/ Ethics hybrid.
Another shortcoming is the lack of any passion or real emotional bond between the main couple. That definitely needed further development.
Having said that, there is a lot to really enjoy in this series. The characters, though a bit shallow, form a cohesive , believable unit. The political twisting of an agonized planet are compelling. The depth and explanation of the system of magic is top drawer. I never have read its like. Plot lines spawn further plot lines and the scale grows and grows. As one of the first books main characters says "there is always another mystery".
Though I started by criticizing some of the writing techniques let me now say- at times the writing is as good as anything that I have read. When two Mistborn suddenly appear out of the darkness and attack the keep of a hostile army I could almost hear the battle.
Overall this Is a better than average trilogy. The ending of all three books is worth the wait

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This sort of finished it for Fantasy for me 12 février 2013
Par Jay C. Oyster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
As a couple other reviewers have said, if I were reviwing just the first of the three books, I'd probably give it a four or a five rating. But I just bought and read the trilogy on the Kindle, and although I did finish all three, I don't think I'll recommend them to others. Or I'll recommend the first book and suggest one ignore the other two.

I'm not going to try to justify this in a literary sense. In my recent reading, I've come down to a much more personal, fundamental judgement . . .did I enjoy the experience. More and more with recent fiction, I have to say 'Nope'. I suppose it started with The Road by Cormac McCarthy. Why does modern fiction feel like it must bludgeon the reader into senselessness in order to get us to understand that there are 'stakes'. Yes, I get it . . . life can be terribly hard. More and more of the 'quality' writing, films, and television seems to want to dwell (for a long, LOOOONG time) on the absolute worst aspects of existence . . pain, suffering, betrayal, torture, loss, heartbreak, greed, stupidity, and all the other weaknesses of human nature. There Will be Blood and No Country for Old Men were a recent pairing of films that epitomize the trend.

This trilogy absolutely falls into this social movement. I can and do read books that are 'dark'. I like seeing a group of characters facing hardship and toil, loss and anguish, but the denoument is also important. This trilogy, especially the second and third books, is a trudge through horror. Character grows, realizes that he/she faces a very difficult challenge, the challenge arrives and is ten times worse than realized, he suffers, she finds a new reservoir of strength or ability and, somehow, prevails. The first ten times you go through this cycle in these books, it's entertaining, but with diminishing returns. When it gets to the 20th or 30th time you see characters you sort of care about being torn to pieces, I've reached the point where there is no pleasure left . . .and I feel like a masochist for continuing.

If you liked Shakespeare's Hamlet, but thought the ending was too light hearted, so you went on to read Hamlet 2, 3, 4, and 5, where all the frivolity were excised, then Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Trilogy is for you.
