Summary:

Fresh from the success of The Way of Kings, Brandon Sanderson, best known for completing Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time®, takes a break to return to the world of the bestselling Mistborn series.

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.

Genres:

  • Geoff Thomas

    Fun read. Serious audio technical flaws. Narrator alone is worth the purchase.

  • Judy Cannioti

    Keeping it short and fun, Sanderson doesn't engage in the world building and this leaves this sequel less satisfying and rich with ideas and philosophy than the first Mistborn books. I liked it, but didn't love it like the others. Still it's a fun read.

  • Kristen Simler

    It is a fun, quick book to listen to! The narration is spot on, and the character Wayne will keep you laughing, throughout the book.

  • Brittany larsen

    Loved it! This author never disappoints, hard to put down once you've started! And this narrator is just amazing

  • Tyrrel Bloy

    So great, it really is addicting. I can give the author so much praise but it would not be enough.

  • Andrew Burdeaux

    Great book ! ! ! Very amusing and really hard to put down.
