Mistborn Era 1, Book 1
What if the prophesied hero failed to defeat the Dark Lord?
In Luthadel, the Lord Ruler reins over the world. A ‘sliver of eternity’, he has reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. When even the meaning of hope had been lost, a half-Skaa named Kelsier ‘snapped’ in the most hellish of prisons, finding in himself the power of a Mistborn.
A natural leader, Kelsier recruits the underground’s elite for the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler as the mark. Though bold, his plan looks ready to fail until he finds a protégé in a young orphan girl named Vin. Vin has led a rough life and must learn how to trust Kelsier in order to master the powers she didn’t know she had.
