Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Wax and Wayne are back in the New York Times bestselling sequel to The Alloy of Law ! Waxillium Ladrian was a lawman in Scadrial's ungoverned frontier region, known as the Roughs, where he worked with his eccentric but effective buddy, Wayne. They are "twinborn," meaning they are able to use both Allomantic and Feruchemical magic. In their world, technology and magic mix, democracy contends with corruption, and religion becomes a growing cultural force, with four faiths competing for converts. This bustling, optimistic, but still shaky society now faces its first instance of terrorism, crimes intended to stir up strife. Wax and Wayne, assisted by the lovely, brilliant Marasi, must unravel the conspiracy before it stops Scadrial's progress in its tracks.
Review Quote*"Sanderson's fantasy world partakes equally of steampunk, early industry, and the Wild West, and he cleverly incorporates the metal-shaping magic of feruchemists and allomancers. Fantasy fans will savor this exciting escapade." - Publishers Weekly "Fast, smart dialog and an abundance of exciting action keep the pages turning." - Library Journal , starred review "The action never lets up, and the characters never lose their endearing humanity… . A fast-paced fantasy adventure set in a fascinating world and populated with lovable, memorable characters." – -Kirkus Reviews "Exceedingly satisfying." - Romantic Times (4 1/2 star, gold review) on Mistborn
