The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead has been
vanquished. But so too is Kelsier the man who masterminded the
triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to
his protege Vin; a one-time street urchin, now the most powerful

Lord Ruler died and a strage vaprous entity is stalking Vin. As the
siege of Luthadel intensifies the ancient legend of the Well of
Ascension offers the only glimmer of hope. But no-one knows where
it is or what it can do . . .
