From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

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.

Praise for The Alloy of Law

“Kramer is the type of reader who is skillful enough to read a story without making his character voicing sound forced. He provides enough differences in character speech patterns and accents to help you easily follow the story.” —SFF Audio

“Sanderson's blend of rapid-fire action, vivid characterization, and snappy, bantering dialogue makes for a great audio experience. Reader Michael Kramer has an incredibly impressive vocal range, from the natural baritone in which he narrates to the alto he uses for women. Macmillan is also to be commended for including with the audio a PDF of a facsimile broadsheet that appears in the print version of the books and which would not have translated easily into audio. Be smart and don't miss this one.” —Locus

“Michael Kramer performs a terrific frontiersman – laconic and drawling…This is a Western, at least in spirit, set within a fantasy world with an innovative magic system that's fun to figure out.” —AudioFile Magazine

“[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 on the Mistborn series and Brandon Sanderson

“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 M… More…
