In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with color once more?
In Brandon Sanderson’s intriguing tale of love, loss, despair and hope, a new kind of magic enters the stage – Allomancy, a magic of the metals.
Oh my goodness! This is my second reading of the novel, and it’s even more amazing than the first time. The world building – Luthadel (the capital city) and the Empire itself is dark, grimy, treacherous and masterfully done. The characters, everyone from Kelsier and Vin to the crew of Allomancers, are fully developed – complex and multidimensional.
If you’re a fan of fantasy that is well written and complex, in the vain of Patrick Rothfuss and George R.R. Martin, then you must read this one. Sanderson is a master!
