The Mists rule the night. The Lord Ruler owns the world.
FOR A THOUSAND YEARS, the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years, the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years, the Lord
Ruler reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Every attempted revolt has failed miserably.
Yet somehow, hope survives. A new kind of uprising is being planned, one that depends on the cunning of a brilliant criminal mastermind and the courage of an unlikely heroine, a Skaa street urchin, who nst learn to master Allomancy, the power of a Mistborn.
Campbell Award nominee Bran Sanderson dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the prophesied hero had failed to defeat the Dark Lord? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises that begins right here.
