New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson returns to the exciting world of the Mistborn in The Alloy of Law.

In the three hundred years since the events of the Mistborn trilogy, science and technology have marched on. Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads, electric lighting, and even the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.

Yet even with these advances, the 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 those attempting to establish order and justice.

One 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 must now put away his guns and assume the duties incumbent upon the head of a noble house—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.

Praise for The Alloy of Law

Sanderson continues to show that he is one of the best authors in the genre.”
Library Journal, starred review

 

“Part Sherlock Holmes, Part X-Men, this exciting stand-alone adventure is full of close shaves, shootouts, and witty banter.”  —Publishers Weekly


“Rive with laugh-out-loud moments, religious and philosophical ponderings, and plenty of crime-fighting action, this book fits nicely in any gun-holster.”  —Booklist on The Alloy of Law

 

“An engaging and fun romp of a read. The characters really shine.”
RT Book Reviews on The Alloy of Law

 

“Sanderson’s fresh ideas on the source and employment of magic are both arresting and original.”
Kirkus Reviews on The Alloy of Law

Praise for the Mistborn series and Brandon Sanderson

“[The Hero of Ages] brings the Mistborn epic fantasy trilogy to a dramatic and surprising climax…. Sanderson’s saga of consequences offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith, and responsibility.”  —Publishers Weekly

“Sanderson is an evil genius. There is simply no other way to describe what he’s managed to pull off in this transcendent final volume of his Mistborn trilogy.”
—RT Book Reviews (Gold Medal, Top Pick!) on The Hero of Ages

Mistborn utilizes a well thought-out system of magic. It also has a great cast of believable characters, a plausible world, an intriguing political system and, despite being the first book of a trilogy, a very satisfying ending. Highly recommended to anyone hungry for a good read.”  —Robin Hobb

“ It’s rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise.”  —Orson Scott Card
