I am always happy when I reach the ened of a series...and am not left unsatisfied. This was not the case with this series. This book answered many of the questions left unanswered in the first two books, and the eneding was probably one of the most satisfying I have ever read..mainly because it still surprised me. After reading so many fantasy tomes..you can almost always predict what is going to happen...you become a bit jaded...but Sanderson never stops surprising you. The ending, while expected with it's "happy ending", was still unexpected because it is very bitersweet and surprising for who plays the biggest role in the world rebirth. I enjoyed all 3 of these books and highly reccomend them.
