This weeks post reveals just how deep into the fantasy genre I am willing to go....(and hopefully I am not alone)
Goodreads): Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.
Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Spook, and the rest are now part of history—or religion. Yet even as science and technology are reaching new heights, the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world. Out in the frontier lands known as the Roughs, they are crucial tools for the brave men and women attempting to establish order and justice.
One such is Waxillium Ladrian, a rare Twinborn who can Push on metals with his Allomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or heavier at will. After twenty years in the Roughs, Wax has been forced by family tragedy to return to the metropolis of Elendel. Now he must reluctantly put away his guns and assume the duties and dignity incumbent upon the head of a noble house. Or so he thinks, until he learns the hard way that the mansions and elegant tree-lined streets of the city can be even more dangerous than the dusty plains of the Roughs.
HELLO!?! Who said that there was going to be a 4th book? I totally thought that everything was over in the series (and though it wasn't the most perfect ending, I was able to accept it) and what a wonderful series it was! Brandon Sanderson is such a creative storyteller! The things he comes up with in all of his series is just superb! And now...I come to find that take that amazing world that he created and add whats see,s to be an amazing steam punk element to it......PLEASE let time pass quickly with amazing books, good company and good food so that I do not dwell on the fact that this is soooooo many long months away....so far away.....
