Overview


This excerpt from Brandon Sanderson’s fourth and latest Mistborn novel, The Alloy of Law, contains the Prologue through Chapter Six.

The Alloy of Law will be available on November 8, 2011.

Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads, electric lighting, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.

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 that the mansions and elegant tree-lined streets of the city can be even more dangerous than the dusty plains of the Roughs.

    The Alloy of Gripping

    Like all of his novels, this one appears to be well-written and interesting. It pulls the reader in from the very start. Sanderson always seems to have very unique and great ideas for story lines, plots, and magic systems; and he builds vast and incredible worlds, each with its own unique and detailed history. This book - a follow-up to the Mistborn Trilogy - looks like yet another must-read. I can't wait until its release. Also check out The Way Of Kings. One of my absolute favorites!
