In Brandon Sanderson’s “The Lost Metal,” the closing book of the Wax and Wayne series, Senator Waxillium Ladrian intensifies his pursuit of the enigmatic organization known as the Set. Known for their malevolent kidnappings of Allomancy-powered individuals, the Set’s influence has creepingly expanded from the capital city, Elendel, into the beleaguered Outer City of Bilming. Wax and his wife, Steris, face the challenge of exposing the corruption in the Elendel Senate, which the Set has infiltrated. Meanwhile, Detective Marasi Colms and her partner, Wayne, unearth a stockpile of weapons bound for Bilming, opening a new investigative lead. As tensions rise between Elendel and the Outer Cities, a new type of cataclysmic explosive surfaces. The stakes escalate when an immortal kandra serving Scadrial’s god, Harmony, reveals that Bilming is under the malevolent influence of another god, Trell. Trell is worshipped by the Set and poses a threat not just to Scadrial but to the greater Cosmere universe. Wax must confront his complex relationship with Harmony to become the hero Scadrial urgently needs, or face planetary ruin.
