Product Description

Review

“Sanderson continues to show that he is one of the best authors in the genre.” ―Library Journal, starred review

“Part Sherlock Holmes, Part X-Men, this exciting stand-alone adventure is full of close shaves, shootouts, and witty banter.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Rive with laugh-out-loud moments, religious and philosophical ponderings, and plenty of crime-fighting action, this book fits nicely in any gun-holster.” ―Booklist on The Alloy of Law

“An engaging and fun romp of a read. The characters really shine.” ―RT Book Reviews on The Alloy of Law

“Sanderson's fresh ideas on the source and employment of magic are both arresting and original.” ―Kirkus Reviews on The Alloy of Law

“[The Hero of Ages] brings the Mistborn epic fantasy trilogy to a dramatic and surprising climax…. Sanderson's saga of consequences offers complex characters and a compelling plot, asking hard questions about loyalty, faith, and responsibility.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Sanderson is an evil genius. There is simply no other way to describe what he's managed to pull off in this transcendent final volume of his Mistborn trilogy.” ―RT Book Reviews (Gold Medal, Top Pick!) on The Hero of Ages

Mistborn utilizes a well thought-out system of magic. It also has a great cast of believable characters, a plausible world, an intriguing political system and, despite being the first book of a trilogy, a very satisfying ending. Highly recommended to anyone hungry for a good read.” ―Robin Hobb

“ It's rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise.” ―Orson Scott Card

--This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

Pros: fantastic narration with individual voices, good pacing, lots of action and intrigue, highly visual

Cons: characters keep fighting despite serious injuries

Waxillium Ladrian has been called back to the metropolis of Elendel from the Roughs to take over his deceased uncle's business. No longer accustomed to life in the city, after spending so much time as a law keeper in the Roughs, Waxillium tries to subvert his natural tendencies in order to be a good lord. But those intentions fall away when the latest in a spree of robberies and kidnappings hit too close to home. Joined by his former partner Wayne and a clever young woman studying law at the university, Wax is determined to solve this case.

Sanderson has created a fantastic world. The Alloy of Law takes place some 300 years after his Mistborn trilogy, but you don't need to read that in order to enjoy this novel. A cross between fantasy and western - with a little steampunk thrown in - it's helped usher in a new subgenre of fantasy (others that do the same thing would be Gemma Files's A Book of Tongues, Christine Cody's Bloodlands and Mike Resnick's Buntline Special). The mythology is touched on briefly, but the real treat here is the 'magic' of Allomancy and Feruchemy, both ways to manipulate metals. Wax is a twinborn, meaning he can do both forms of magic - using his metal minds he can manipulate his weight and as a coinshot he's able to push on steel. These abilities, combined with a steady hand and sharp wits make him a formidable lawman.

Wayne acts as necessary comedic relief from Wax's melancholy and seriousness.

In his forward, Sanderson explains that he's always been irked by fantasy books that span multiple generations yet never show an advancement of civilzation and technology. He wondered what would happen to the magic he created in his Mistborn Trilogy (a must-read for any fan of the genre).

Our story takes place long after the ending of Hero of Ages. Society has advanced to the point of what we would consider "The Old West." Alchemy has gone through a small bit of evolution, but is still mostly the same, and Feruchemy has become commonplace.

The description of the book given on Amazon is fairly spot on, so I won't give anything away.

If you're a fan of Sanderson, this book is probably already on your wish list. If you've never read him, I suggest buying this, along with the first three Mistborn novels; You won't be disappointed. Sanderson continually amazes me with his ability to create completely new, and intriguing worlds that are unlike anything else seen in the genre.

I wasn't sure what to expect with the massive jump forward in time and technology since the Mistborn trilogy took place, but it turned out to be a fantastic idea. I loved the characters and story involving a mix of technology and fantasy.

Great Update version for the series. Would make a good TV movie/series. Quite enjoyable read, moves along without being disjointed. Series basics fit in quite well for this time period.

This was a great story - a real good addition to the universe - hard to go wrong with a Sanderson novel.

I really enjoyed this book. The interactions between the two protagonists is lively and keeps you entertained. Plot is clear and easy to follow. I didn't commit to a purchase until I was sure follow up novels were on the way. Bought it as soon as this was confirmed and have already reread it twice. Pre-ordered the next two in this trilogy as well.

Love the story and the writing remains as crisp as ever. The lead characters and the villains all fantastic. The tie-ins to the original survivor crew and the deities they had become although few, were superbly delivered. Good read if you have read all his previous works.

More good stuff from Sanderson.
This series has more violence in it than the Mistborn trilogy did. Mostly because there are guns in this series.
Still, it was exciting and the character development is top-notch.
