    I loved the Mistborn trilogy, it was really great. If I had the time I would give it a second read. Enjoy!

    Then you must try The Magician's Guild Trilogy. The writing style isn't AS good but I find it to be very similar concept wise

    Que?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magicians%27_Guild

    If that is it, it looks good. I'll add it on my list of "to read". Right now I'm busy with The Wheel of Time, after that I want to read the Scifi series Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan. So this will have to fall after that.

    For anybody that doesn't know Wild Cards or Watchmen:
    It's the Heroes TV series (the good ones, at the start) done in words. But more realistic and gritty.

    For anybody that doesn't know what words are:
    In Heroes, when the people spoke in foreign, those symbols at the bottom of the screen, them be words.

    Wait, why am I explaining written language in text?

    Anyway, the Wild Cards series is edited (and sometimes written) by George RR Martin (Game of Thrones guy) and it's been picked up to be a TV Series soon.
    [MENTION=11450]Mister 44[/MENTION], How am I only seeing this just now??!!! This premise is pretty tailor made for me (the good Heroes season, by that I mean the first, the Supervillainy Saga, the Reckoners, Vicious, The Ables)... I'm quite literally a Superhero genre nut at this point (well... until we start talking magic).

    Umm, about Wild Cards, is it this you are referring too? if so, if you say all that about Watchmen and first season Heroes...then you have me hooked.

    The Watchmen....amazing series, same with the first Heroes.
    Jip, that's it.

    I'm enjoying Wild Cards very much but it may not be to everyone's taste. The way most of the books work is that a number of writers collaborate on it (but some books are written by a single writer) with George RR Martin editing it all together. They each create their own characters and build on the overall story, referencing characters and plot elements from each other building a very detailed and diverse universe in the process. This also means that some characters and stories are better than others.

    Personally I love the Sleeper, the Turtle and Captain Trips but I'm not fond of some of the other characters.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    Nice. Enjoy the read, it is going to take a while. Some of the books get a bit long in the tooth, but just power through. It's worth it.

    Edit: On a sidenote, there is another prequel book that I recently discovered, called The Strike at Shayol Ghul. I haven't read it yet, but is part of my ebook collection so I'll be reading it once I'm done with book14.

    I actually wanted to read one from the Wheel of time, and then another from The Dresden files. That fell through when if found many interesting parallels to other literature in the Wheel of time. So I just kept on reading, always keeping an eye out for some subtle details.

    Started Book 8, Path of Daggers, yesterday. I'm trying to read a book per week and I'm not doing too badly at that at least.
