Alloy of Law: A Mistborn Novel, The

Brandon Sanderson
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.

It felt very good to dive back into the Mistborn universe. I love Wax and Wayne, and they are quickly becoming some of my favorite characters (though still behind Vin). I like the idea of the characters from the original trilogy becoming almost mythological figures. It's a nice way to tie this series into that one while still standing on its own merits. I'll be moving on to the next book immediately.

I love Allomancy! The different uses and mystery behind the superhuman abilities of allomancy makes this fantasy world come alive for me. Combine this love with a love of westerns and you have 'The Alloy of Law'.

This book was a joy to read.
