Oh. Wow. That was....that was amazing. *sits back* I think it's going to take me a while to collect my thoughts...and my breath...after reading this one. What a fantastic conclusion to Elend and Vin's story.... What I really want to ponder is how Brandon Sanderson is such a master of mystery...dropping clues all throughout the book until you hit just that right moment when suddenly everything clicks in a huge eureka moment and you start frantically flipping back through pages to see that yes, in fact, he did drop those clues all along... O.o That's masterful storytelling at its finest...and something I desperately want to improve in my own.
Can't write a more thorough review than that at the moment. Suffice to say: Excellent. Bravo, Mr. Sanderson. Bravo.
