Description

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

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.

Our customer reviews

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 Iâ??m not really a fan of gun fights, train robberies, or the classic â??Bad Guy Kidnapping Girls for Use in His Evil Schemeâ?? bit. I suppose itâ??s an interesting Metallurgic version of the Old West, but it just wasnâ??t for me. Iâ??m contemplating the pros and cons of continuing the series. Would I recommend it: Actually, yes. Especially if youâ??ve read the Mistborn Trilogy, would you pretty please read this one and get back to me? I canâ??t possibly be the only one who loved the first three books and didnâ??t really care for this one, can I? As reviewed by Melissa at Every Free Chance Book Reviews.show more
