Fresh from the success of "The Way of Kings, " Brandon
Sanderson, best known for completing Robert Jordan's Wheel of
Time(R), takes a break to return to the world of the bestselling
Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy,
Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to
supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the
homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing
for the clouds.
Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of
history--or religion. Yet even as science and technology are
reaching new heights, the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy
continue to play a role in this reborn world. Out in the frontier
lands known as the Roughs, they are crucial tools for the brave men
and women attempting to establish order and justice.
One such is Waxillium Ladrian, a rare Twinborn, who can Push on
metals with his Allomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or
heavier at will. After twenty years in the Roughs, Wax has been
forced by family tragedy to return to the metropolis of Elendel.
Now he must reluctantly put away his guns and assume the duties and
dignity incumbent upon the head of a noble house. Or so he thinks,
until he learns the hard way that the mansions and elegant
tree-lined streets of the city can be even more dangerous than the
dusty plains of the Roughs.
