Magic The Final Empire (2006)

What if the whole planet was a lifeless, desolate wasteland?

Book details

What if the entire planet was a dead, blasted wasteland?

The ash fell for a thousand years, and no flowers bloomed. The Skaa were slaves in misery and lived in fear for a thousand years. The Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror for a thousand years, divinely invincible. When hope had been lost for so long that not even its memory remained, a horribly scarred, heartbroken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most dreadful prison. Kelsier "snapped" and gained the powers of a Mistborn. He turned his talents as a brilliant thief and natural leader to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark.

Kelsier enlisted the underworld's elite, the brightest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom possesses one of his many abilities and who thrive on a high-stakes challenge. Then Kelsier reveals his ultimate fantasy, not just the greatest heist in history, but the divine despot's demise.

Even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan appears to be a long shot until a ragged girl named Vin enters his life. She, too, is a half-Skaa orphan, but her life has been much harsher. Vin has come to expect betrayal from everyone she encounters. If Kel is to assist her in mastering powers she never imagined, she must learn to trust.

Brandon Sanderson, fantasy's newest master storyteller and author of the critically acclaimed debut Elantris, takes a risk by asking a simple question: What if the prophesied hero fails to defeat the Dark Lord? The answer can be found in the Misborn Trilogy, a story full of twists and turns that begins with the book in your hands. The world of fantasy will never be the same again.
