Fresh from the success of The Way of Kings Audiobook, Brandon Sanderson, best known for completing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time Audiobook, takes a break to return to the world of the best-selling Mistborn Audiobook series.
The Mistborn Audiobook trilogy has become a firm favorite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series and his skill at marshaling epic storylines and dramatic action, plus his ability to create vivid characters, made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan’s epic Wheel of Time sequence. But with Mistborn, his stand-alone fantasies, and his new series, The Stormlight Archive, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction.
Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story set years after the events of Hero of Ages Audiobook.
Introduce to Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook
Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook free is a high fantasy audiobook written by American author Brandon Sanderson. It was published on November 8, 2011 by Tor Books and is the first book in the Mistborn: Wax and Wayne Audiobook series and fourth in the Mistborn Audiobook series.
The Alloy of Law Audiobook is preceded by The Hero of Ages Audiobook from the Mistborn Original Trilogy in 2008 and followed by Shadows of Self Audiobook in 2015.
The story features Twinborns, Metalborns who are able to use Allomancy and Feruchemy in conjunction; and abilities not present in the original trilogy.
In a world recovering only slowly from evil, a world where allomancers wield immense power through their ability to unleash the magic bound up in common metals, someone who can burn metals that no-one has burned before can tip the balance….
Sanderson has the knack of giving epic fantasy listeners exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre and the dramatic story within The Alloy of Law shows off this skill to its very best.
Plot of Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook
Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now 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.
You can’t miss Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook
I love fantasy stories, but when I tried reading the Mistborn series I just could not get into the first book. Then I decided to give it a listen instead. I loved the series and immediately upon finishing it scooped up Alloy. I was not disappointed, but now I am seriously hoping that there will be more of Wax and Wayne (I am not kidding, the main characters are really called Wax & Wayne, even worse it took me a while to catch on).
Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook free picks up 3 centuries after the last audiobook in the Mistborn Audiobook trilogy and the characters that I came to love in that series make appearances in the history of the city of Elendel. Wax (descendant of Breeze) has resigned himself to giving up his life as a lawman in the Roughs (think wild west) to come back to Elendel (think NYC). Trains are becoming ever more useful, ‘horseless carriages” can be seen motoring to and fro and some of the affluent are even getting electric lights in their homes. I do not want to give a lot away, but Wax is a gunslinger and he is twinborn (allomancer and feruchemist), Wayne prefers dueling canes and is also twinborn and Marasi is a young lady allomancer studying law, and Wax & Wayne’s exploits, at University. Together the three become embroiled in the mystery of a series of train robberies conducted by the Vanishers, who make a mysterious train engine appear on the tracks, steel the valuable cargo, rob the passengers and take a hostage, all without leaving a trace, and all in a matter of minutes.
If you like fantasy and mystery this audiobook is for you.
Michael Kramer narrated the Mistborn Audiobook trilogy as well as Mistborn: The Alloy of Law Audiobook and did a fabulous job. He can do a variety of voices and his female characters are quite believable. I believe that he ties with Stephen Weber as my favorite audio book narrator; unless Morgan Freeman narrates audio books too.
