Wax and wayne book 2
Wax and Wayne (Literature) - TV TropesThe last time I reviewed a Brandon Sanderson book, I complained of Sanderson fatigue, the review got featured, and several more people complained about it with me. And I enjoyed them immensely. In fact, for someone like me who still had fond memories of earlier Cosmere experiences, The Alloy of Law, Shadows of Self, and The Bands of Mourning were perfect way to pull me back in. Set several centuries after the first Mistborn trilogy, this series keeps many of the same magical rules but has allowed them to evolve with new possibilities and limitations, refreshing the magic system while preserving a cozy familiarity. Even better, technology has also progressed, moving the setting from medieval to a blend of Wild West and steampunk. Allomancer shooutouts and train heists? Yes, please.
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.

His attempts at the quiet life are quickly foiled, however, by the return of his old friend Wayne, his own internal desire to do the right thing, and the appearance of a mysterious group of thieves called "The Vanishers".

Mistborn is a series of epic fantasy novels written by American author Brandon Sanderson and published by Tor Books. To prepare readers for the second series, Sanderson wrote a transitional sequel, The Alloy of Law , which then turned into the first installment in the Wax and Wayne tetralogy, set years later. Sanderson also published a companion story to the original trilogy, titled Mistborn: Secret History , on January 26, There are two other planned trilogies, but they have no projected completion dates. The series primarily takes place in a region called the Final Empire on a world called Scadrial, where the sun and sky are red, vegetation is brown, and the ground is constantly being covered under black volcanic ashfalls. Every night the land becomes covered in an unnatural mist or fog. One thousand years before the story begins, the ruler of the Final Empire, the Lord Ruler, gained access to a divine power at what is called the "Well of Ascension", where he is rumored to have defeated the unknown danger called the "Deepness".
It was published on November 8, by Tor Books and is the first book in the Wax and Wayne series and fourth in the Mistborn series. The story features Twinborns , Metalborns who are able to use Allomancy and Feruchemy in conjunction; and abilities not present in the original trilogy. The Alloy of Law is set in an analog to the early 20th century, on Scadrial , approximately years after the conclusion of the original trilogy. Waxillium and his partner Lessie are investigating a serial killer in Feltrel, a small town in the Roughs. They decide to split up and Wax follows the murderer's tracks, leading him into a small church, where he finds that Lessie had been captured and held as hostage by the serial killer.

Alloy is small-scale, since it was intended to be a short story that turned into a novella that turned into a full novel. It's interesting to see Allomancy and Feruchemy in a different setting, but it doesn't have the in-universe ramifications of the original trilogy.
