The awesome task of building a new world has been left to Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, the new King Elend, an idealistic young nobleman she loves, and the Mist-skilled crew who led the rebellion. Mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbour a strange vaporous entity that haunts her.Three armies – one of them composed of ferocious giants – compete to conquer the city. There is no sign of the Lord Ruler’s hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal. As the siege of Luthadel tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.
