    1.) The Final Empire ★★★★★ 2.) The Well of Ascension ★★★ 3.) The Hero of Ages ★★★★ 3.5) Secret History ★★★★★ This is a prequel story to the Mistborn series! It’s very short, but I absolutely loved the story. And, to be completely honest, I love seeing anything that stars Kelsier! This story centers around a man named Gemmel who is teaching Kelsier to use his Mistborn powers. And his powers are eventually put to the test when he is required to fight another Mistborn who is up to some no-good deeds. A 1.) The Final Empire ★★★★★ 2.) The Well of Ascension ★★★ 3.)

Again, this story obviously takes place before the events in The Final Empire, where Kelsier is already a confirmed badass with his powers. And just seeing Kelsier’s dynamic with his Allomantic teacher, who is obviously talking to someone who plays a much bigger part in this trilogy, brought such a smile to my face the entire time while reading.

    3.5/5 Stars Mini review (I read this in Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection) The Eleventh Metal is a short prequel to the original Mistborn trilogy which depicted the beloved character from the series, Kelsier, on his training to master his skills as a Mistborn with his mentor, Gemmel and it also shows the first spark of Kelsier’s idea for vengeance. Overall, this short story is a good short read for me, while it's enjoyable to read more of Kelsier, other than Gemmel’s appearance it provides 3.5/5 Stars Mini review (I read this in Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection) The Eleventh Metal is a short prequel to the original Mistborn trilogy which depicted the beloved character from the series, Kelsier, on his training to master his skills as a Mistborn with his mentor, Gemmel and it also shows the first spark of Kelsier’s idea for vengeance.

    He couldn’t return to Luthadel until … until he was himself again. Or at the very least a scarred version of himself, the wounds closed, the memories quieted. This is a super short story about Kelsier's Mistborn training with his teacher Gemmel before the events of The Final Empire. The things he suffered in the Pits of Hathsin are still fresh in his mind and he is broken. How could he smile in a world without her? Kelsier kept smiling. He’d do so until it felt natural.

This is a super short story about Kelsier's Mistborn training with his teacher Gemmel before the events of The Final Empire. The things he suffered in the Pits of Hathsin are still fresh in his mind and he is broken. How could he smile in a world without her? Kelsier kept smiling. He’d do so until it felt natural. Until that numbness, tied in a knot within him, started to unravel and he began to feel again. Though he starts out grieving it soon turns to rage. Thoughts of a plan to get revenge but at the same time- a change for his fellow Skaa start to blossom. I wish this story was longer but that's probably because I missed Kelsier so much. Whatever he had been, it wasn’t enough. He needed to become something more.

    "I'm a man who has lived through things he shouldn't have." This was a short story exploring the relation between Kelsier and Gemmel who teached him about allomancy. It was good to see Kelsier as someone fresh to the magic and still not the master we know from the original trilogy. I think the story can work as an epilogue to the Mistborn world, where it very quickly gives an idea about the world-building and the magic system which are the two best things in this series.

    I was happily surprised to find out that this was a Kelsier story. It was a short glimpse of him training as a Mistborn with his mentor. Gives us an idea of what changes he had to go through and how he decided on his plan to kill the Lord Ruler.

I always like returning to the original trilogy because of that unique atmosphere it gives you with the tone and the intensity of the Lord Ruler's world. Brandon Sanderson wrote this for a game. It was meant to serve as both a little bit of fun new content for long-time readers as well as a little appetiser for players of the game. In both cases I think that Sanderson completed his goal. The Eleventh Metal actually serves a great role in quickly showcasing allowmancy, setting up the tone, and showing you a (surprisingly) vulnerable Kelsier who is just learning how to be Mistborn after escaping the Pits of Hathsin. Honestly, I regret not reading this earlier, for example after The Final Empire because I think it would keep what it needs to keep a mystery for the duration of The Final Empire, but upping the emotional crescendo after it. I think that this is also a very beautifully written short piece. For familiar readers, like me, this was just fun to go back and see where Kelsier gets his plan do dethrone the Lord Ruler from. Is it a bit cheesy? Yeah, but it makes sense. The short story explains a vital detail's background so it was also a lot of fun to find out about that. I can't give The Eleventh Metal more stars because I think I just read it too late and the emotional impact of book 1 faded a bit. Overall, very solid short story and intro to Mistborn.

    “I’m here to teach you how to fight. Not how to talk. You already do that.” ~ Gemmel A very short story about Kelsier before the events of the Final Empire and when Kelsier was still trying to gain better control of his new found abilities and dealing with his losses still. Frankly speaking, this story adds nothing to the Final Empire in any way and I don’t think it will add to the rest of the trilogy either. However, I think the value that this short story can offer is in terms of nostalgia “I’m here to teach you how to fight. Not how to talk.

However, I think the value that this short story can offer is in terms of nostalgia. Its like meeting a beloved character again, if only for a couple of pages (and even if the character wasn't really himself yet). I found Gemmel was an interesting character, I daresay, and I wouldn’t have minded reading more about him! Onwards to read more of Mistborn!! :D

    Very minor spoilers below! A very short read but an enjoyable one. It felt good to be back in a story from Kelsier’s point of view and find out more about how his grand plan from The Final Empire came to be. Also information about Gemmel, Kelsier’s tutor helped me understand Kelsier’s ruthlessness when it came to teaching Vin. 3 stars.

The Eleventh Metal reads just like The Final Empire except Kelsier is being trained to be a Mistborn by Gemmell rather than him training Vin. All of the over explained Mistborn moves have returned as well. This is just a sneak peek into the moments when Kelsier's plans started to take form.

    Mistborn prequel. Where have you been 5 months ago when I first read the Mistborn trilogy? Nevermind, it was cool nonetheless. Took me a couple of pages to get used to Brandy Sandy's writing style, but from that point to the end, it was a clean, solid, interesting 4-star read, worth of reading. (view spoiler)[The short story portrays Kelsier after escaping the Pits of Hatsim, as an apprentice of an older Mistborn named Gemmel, and it also shows us the first Mistborn vs. Mistborn fight in the seri Mistborn prequel.

Although it's real tiny story and not a very important one or have missing pieces like Mistborn : secret History, but you can read it in 10 min so what the hell.. Read it.. And yeah! The bonus is - You'll get to know a little about the person who taught Kelsier allomancy.. So a big YES.. Not more than 3.5 stars only because there wasn't much to read :P Kelsier again...

    This is a prequel short story to the first Mistborn trilogy, but I didn't manage to get my hands on it until after I had read book one. It follows Kelsier, a major player in The Final Empire, as he hones his Mistborn skills with mentor Gemmel (a nod to fantasy legend David Gemmell, I wonder?). I would say that reading this after reading the first full length Mistborn novel enhanced my experience, as it added a layer of poignancy I wouldn't have otherwise garnered from it.

I also found that a familiarity with the world also improved the atmospheric quality. Obviously, given the very limited page number, only the briefest of overview is provided but it is not so little as to be indecipherable to those who have yet to read any further in the series.

    4.5 stars Short but superb! I really loved this little snippet we get of Kelsier's training as a Mistborn under Gemmel's tutelage. They also happen to stumble across something very unsavoury in Keep Sezler too! Reading this made me lament the loss of Kelsier :'( but it's here where we see him realise that he needs to become something more in order to "save" humanity from the nobility's rule.

    I read this in Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection. Fun, very short story about Kelsier and his Allomantic teacher Gemmell. Other than that the only thing I will say is that I want more Kelsier. I've missed him and I hope Sanderson decides to write more about his post, in the future (I hope that makes sense haha).

    “A plan began to bud, a plan he barely dared consider for its audacity. Vengeance. And more.” A sliver of a story, this focuses on a moment in time when Kelsier wasn’t the Mistborn we know him to be from the series. Instead, we see how he trains under Gemmel, a Mistborn who has an unforgiving training method. Personally, I don’t think this adds much to the trilogy, unless we focus on Gemmel. After reading The Hero of Ages I can’t help but wonder… Maybe we do know who he was talking to and wha “A plan began to bud, a plan he barely dared consider for its audacity. Vengeance.

    This short story was so good. It was wonderful to be back with Kelsier, the character who stole my heart in Brandon Sandersons The final empire aka Mistborn book 1. Here we are taken back in time to when Kelsier was the student and his teacher Gemmel (who is mentioned in The final empire) is training him in the allomantic use of metals. It was also an insight into the reasons Kelsier is how he is in said book. I really liked it, wish it were a full book in itself, I'd be there with bells on if it This short story was so good.
