The Alloy of Law Review

The Alloy of Law
Review

Plot:
         "Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is 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." ( Sandersons Website)

Characters:

  1. Wax: Snarky, and witty. He is a very amusing character who I cannot wait to read more about in the coming books. He is caring and charming (to the ladies) and I am hoping to see if any of these flirts work in his favor or just hinder him. 
  2. Wayne: Uneducated, and witty. He may not be book smart but he is Roughs smart. I hope that these books in the series will feature him more often with his wit and lack of social understanding.
General:
  • Sanderson is my favorite author, because of his very unique world building and complex and witty characters.
  • I love the way Sanderson writes in such a clear and concise sentences with great supporting lead characters.
  • This is a very fast paced and fun ride that everyone should read! AFTER COMPLETING THE MISTBORN TRILORGY.
  • I am sorry this is such a short review however this is Sanderson so all I can say is MUST READ NOW!
  • A side note, these covers are actually very fitting of the story and I may like them more than the UK covers. I know this is hard to believe but the UK do not seem to hold as much symbolism as the US covers do.
Tag Line: 
Mistborn meets the wild wild west... 

Rating: 5/5 *****/*****

A must read for all Sanderson fans..
