Description"New York Times" bestselling author Brandon Sanderson returns to the exciting world of the Mistborn in "The Alloy of Law." In the three hundred years since the events of the Mistborn trilogy, science and technology have marched on. Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads, electric lighting, and even the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds. Yet even with these advances, the 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 those attempting to establish order and justice. One 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 must now put away his guns and assume the duties incumbent upon the head of a noble house--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.

Reviews for The Alloy of Law
Just wasn't for me.
Did I enjoy this book: It was everything I loved about the Mistborn Trilogy, but set, unfortunately, in some sort of post-Vin-and-Elend Wild West. I like Wax and his crew, but I’m not really a fan of gun fights, train robberies, or the classic “Bad Guy Kidnapping Girls for Use in His Evil Scheme” bit. I suppose it’s an interesting Metallurgic version of the Old West, but it just wasn’t for me.
I’m contemplating the pros and cons of continuing the series.
Would I recommend it: Actually, yes. Especially if you’ve read the Mistborn Trilogy, would you pretty please read this one and get back to me? I can’t possibly be the only one who loved the first three books and didn’t really care for this one, can I?
