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.
When family obligations forced Waxillium Ladrian to forsake the frontier lands and return to the metropolis of his birth to take his place as head of a noble House, he little imagined that the crime-fighting skills acquired during twenty years in the dusty plains would be just as applicable in the big city. He soon learned that there too, just being a talented Twinborn ?? one who can use both Allomancy and Feruchemy, the dominant magical modes on Scadrial ?? would not suffice.
This bustling, optimistic, but still shaky society will now face its first test by terrorism and assassination, crimes intended to stir up labor strife and religious conflict. Wax, his eccentric sidekick Wayne, and brilliant, beautiful young Marasi, now officially part of the constabulary, must unravel the conspiracy before civil strife can stop Scadrial's progress in its tracks.

Sanderson strikes again ( )
  lindywilson | Jan 3, 2024 |
HOW DARE THIS BOOK.

Continuing my first read of Era 2 of Mistborn, Sanderson BROKE WHAT REMAINS OF MY SOUL for fun it seems like.

I enjoyed this plot more, perhaps because I like MeLaan more (the Kandra are fascinating) and I definitely agreed with her argument with Marasi at the end (regarding what Marasi would have the Kandra, or Harmony, do exactly. Force feed them answers to all their questions? How are they different from the Lord Ruler then?) And I looked at Marasi with some disappointment again at her suggestion that MeLaan play a pivotal role in the trial...by pretending to be someone else and give testimony that --while likely true is based on well educated assumptions, not hard facts.

The discussion about the proper way to appear "dead by hanging" and how to escape a coroner had me smiling in dark amusement.

In the end the utter broken anger I had over Lessie, tainted this for me somewhat as it felt wrong to hurt Wax who is a giant teddy bear. (Wayne still remains fav) ( )

Very solid middle book of the trilogy, deepening the mysteries and continuing to engage the reader. ( )

How the fuck does Wax manage to fridge Lessie three times. Seriously?
