    No, it is just very clearly a middle book. The first book could stand by itself. The second one sets the stage for the third book.

    Though, on this reread I am remembering some important things that happens in this book as well :look

    I have forgotten a lot about this book. I remember really liking it and staying up late every night to read it but 10 year later I can't really remember much about it

    Yeah, it's been a while. I tried rereading it about a year ago, but had to give up... Now I kind of "have to", so I may be surprised ^^

    Maybe that's why it's been so hard for me to get back into reading it. :look

    Holiday schedule + NaNoWriMo = I'll try to keep up. :lol

    ETA: Audiobook has been downloaded, so now all I have to do is see what chapter I'm on when I get home. :D

    Chapter 3, but late book spoiler:

    I was surprised that I never caught this on other reads, but when Vin is on top of the keep, she sees the body of preservation for a moment. I always thought it was something else.

    Honestly, I was surprised when I reread this that a full year has passed since the events of the last book. But it makes sense. I mean, Straff :balefire has managed to travel to the Northern Dominance and back :look

    That and the Western kingdoms have had time to send that Mistborn assassin to Luthadel.

    :lol I think we've all been there, Leira.

    I finished the book over lunch break. I specifically didn't bring Hero of Ages with me, so I could digest it, and I'm kind of regretting that decision now.
