Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Five

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Five The Second Generation Seizes Control This chapter is another indication of my attempt to space out the climaxes in my books. We’ve had the big Vin fight with the Inquisitors; now I’m going to back off from things just a tad so that the reader has time to catch his…

Play Magic with Brandon at Jordancon!

Play Magic with Brandon at Jordancon! First off, I hope many of you are planning to attend JordanCon in Atlanta this weekend. (Details here—you can still pick up a badge at the door.)

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Four

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Four Allomantic Secrets Some people have asked me why the Lord Ruler was so careful to keep secrets about Allomancy.

Suvudu Cage Match: How It REALLY Went Down

Suvudu Cage Match: How It REALLY Went Down So, from what I’ve heard, Rand won the Suvudu cage match. This leaves me with mixed feelings. On one hand, I am pleased and proud. On the other hand, George R. R. Martin’s write-up of how he thought things would go was simply epic. In his version,…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Two Part 2

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Two Part 2 Marsh and the Earring Also, here we get a Marsh viewpoint. It’s almost our last one. (I think there is one more in the next chapter.) He didn’t get much screen time, but I hope that what he did get led you to this climax for him. Spook’s…

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Two

Annotation Mistborn 3 Chapter Seventy-Two Vin’s Climax Begins I set a high bar for myself with the previous books in this series. I knew I would need a climax to this one which would match the fight between Kelsier and the Lord Ruler in book one, which is undoubtedly the best action sequence I’ve ever…
