The heroes of the Mistborn trilogy are now figures of myth and legend, even objects of religious veneration. Mistborn’s society has evolved as technology and magic mix, the economy grows, democracy contends with corruption, and religion becomes a growing cultural force, with four faiths competing for converts.

Waxillium Ladrian, known as Wax, is the hereditary Lord of House Ladrian but also, until recently, a lawman in the ungoverned frontier region known as the Roughs. There he worked with his eccentric but effective buddy, Wayne. They are “twinborn,” meaning they are able to use both Allomantic and Feruchemical magic.

Their bustling, optimistic, but still shaky society now faces its first instance of terrorism, crimes intended to stir up labor strife and religious conflict. Wax and Wayne, assisted by the lovely, brilliant Marasi, must unravel the conspiracy before civil strife stops Scadrial’s progress in its tracks.

Sequel to The Alloy of Law.

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve been in the Mistborn world and even though I read a couple of summaries to try to refresh my memory on past characters and events, I still wished things were fresher in my memory. Especially all the references to people and events from the original trilogy left me wishing I remembered more. But this was still a fantastic story! Still loved Wayne – what an awesome character he is – adds some great humor. I liked seeing a deeper side to Steris too and there were some new interesting characters introduced. As always, Sanderson throws in some great plot twists and revelations and makes me curious where the story will go from here.
