A marvelous read. I always enjoy Sanderson's narrative, dialogue and plots. This is the next book within the Mistborn world, and is set a few hundred years after the events on the first trilogy. The people we grew to love in the first books (Vin, Kelsier, Sazed) are now part of the religion and myths of the day.

The story centers around a gentleman named Wax Ladrian. After some recent tragedies in his life, he returns to Elendel after being a lawman in the Roughs in order to take over as House Lord the estate his uncle left when he died. Wax is Twinborn, being both a steel misting (coinshot) and an iron feruchemist (can increase and decrease his weight). However, there have been some major robberies and kidnappings that have occurred, and Wax ends up getting sucked back into the action.

Together with his partner Wayne and Marasi, a girl studying criminology at the university, they endeavor to stop the robberies and save those who have been kidnapped (which include Marasi's cousin, Steris).

All in all, it is a great adventure story, and I had a blast reading it. I love the way Sanderson can still incorporate references to the characters we have grown to love from the original trilogy. Plus, the bantering between Wax and Wayne (hopefully you got the pun...) is classic. Definitely a book I will re-read and recommend to others.
