Centuries after the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is on the verge of modernity – railroads, electric street lights, and skyscrapers. Waxillium Ladrian can Push on metals with his Allomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or heavier at will. After 20 years in the dusty Roughs, in the city of Elendel, the new head of a noble house may need to keep his guns.

 

“The mark of a great man is one who knows when to set aside the important things in order to accomplish the vital ones.”

This book was such a fun ride!
Brandon Sanderson has become a comfort writer to me. Whenever I find myself in a reading slump or I am in that mood where I don’t feel like reading anything on my TBR, I can always count on Sanderson to produce something that I will greatly enjoy.
The Alloy of Law is a continuation/spin-off series of the Mistborn trilogy and takes place in the same world. Although it is set hundreds of years in the future and follows different characters, you still need to read Mistborn before diving into this one.

The Rithmatist, Brandon Sanderson’s New York Times bestselling epic teen adventure is now available in paperback.
More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles.
As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students learn the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing—kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery—one that will change Rithmatics—and their world—forever.
