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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as I'd hoped Unlike the previous Mistborn books, there is almost no character development here. The plot twists aren't great. And the finale (epilogue?), where we learn who the Big Bad is, is just plain dumb: how could anyone be silly enough to go and confront Big Bad alone, with no plan whatsoever? Look, it's a competent enough story. But if you've read the Mistborn trilogy or Elantris and were hoping for similar amazing fare, you're going to be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book was freaking amazing! HOLY COW THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! Why couldn't ALL of the Mistborn books have been THIS entertaining?! Not that they were bad or anything, but they certainly weren't THIS exciting. There was action on nearly every page and I totally flew through this novel! I read the last 200 pages of the book in a matter of a couple of hours (which is unusual for me because I tend to read slowly when it comes to reading Fantasy). The characters were relatable, the dialogue was perfection and the overall tone of the book was kick-ass! Someone PLEASE tell me that Sanderson will be coming out with another book in the series soon! I look forward to reading it :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unquestionable Ruler of the World A good continuation of the Mistborn series. I hope there will be more. Kind if anticlimactic at the end.
