Nessuno credeva che un Eliminatore potesse sconfiggere un Epico, eppure l’indomabile Steelheart è morto per mano di David Charleston. Nonostante la vendetta di David sia compiuta e suo padre sia stato vendicato, la scomparsa di Steelheart non ha aiutato la causa di chi, come gli Eliminatori, si batte per sottrarsi alla crudele egemonia degli Epici, esseri che si servono dei loro poteri straordinari per tenere sotto il proprio giogo l’umanità intera. David sa che la battaglia per restituire agli uomini il diritto di uscire dal buio in cui si sono rintanati sarà ancora lunga e sfiancante, e dovrà superare i confini della città di Newcago, ormai libera. Adesso l’obiettivo degli Eliminatori è Regalia, l’Epico despota di Babilonia Rinata, la città che un tempo fu Manhattan. La via che conduce a Firefight, colui che ora tiene le redini del potere, passa da qui, ma l’impresa è rischiosa e lasciarsi guidare dalla sola sete di vendetta può essere molto pericoloso... Dopo Steelheart, il secondo volume di una serie imperdibile.

Tutto ebbe inizio quando Calamity, l’ardente stella rossa, illuminò il cielo, dando inizio all’era dominata dagli Epici. Il destino di David Charleston è stato legato alla loro malvagità fin da quella storica notte. Steelheart ha ucciso suo padre, Firefight ha segnato per sempre la sua vita. Ora non restano che i nemici che abitano Ildithia, la città di sale, il luogo in cui risiedono tutte le risposte e dove avrà inizio la battaglia finale contro gli oppressori. Perché David e i suoi Eliminatori sono sempre più vicini a carpire il segreto che gli Epici si ostinano a celare, così come i loro punti deboli. Una battaglia impari, in cui ogni cosa è messa a repentaglio. Ma quando tutto sembra ormai perduto, uno spiraglio di salvezza illumina il destino degli Eliminatori. La fine non è ancora giunta, e David è abbastanza coraggioso e folle da affrontare faccia a faccia il più potente degli Epici e ristabilire per sempre il giusto corso degli eventi. O perire. Il terzo e conclusivo capitolo di una saga irripetibile, l’epopea di una genia di eletti votati all’estremo sacrificio, mossi da un invincibile anelito di libertà.

Joel ha da sempre una passione per la Ritmatica, la disciplina che consente di infondere vita in entità bidimensionali, semplici linee tracciate con il gesso, e creare creature indipendenti e autonome, i gesseri, in grado di interagire con ciò che li circonda. Ma Joel non è un Ritmatista e non può far altro che guardare con ammirazione e un pizzico d’invidia i giovani eletti che studiano alla sua stessa scuola. I Ritmatisti vengono prescelti da un Maestro dopo una misteriosa cerimonia di iniziazione e sono i soli in grado di contrastare i letali gesseri selvatici, spietate creature deviate che seminano il terrore. Figlio di un’addetta alle pulizie nella scuola, Joel ha la possibilità di osservarli alle prese con l’arte che lui stesso vorrebbe praticare. Quando, all’improvviso, gli studenti iniziano a scomparire uno ad uno, lasciando tracce di sangue, sarà Joel, come assistente del professor Fitch, a indagare su un mistero che sembra risalire alla sinistra Torre del Nebrask, il centro dell’arcipelago delle Isole Unite. Affiancato dalla sua eccentrica amica Melody, Joel arriverà a scoprire una verità che potrebbe cambiare per sempre il destino del mondo. Riuscirà il giovane Joel a sfuggire ai pericoli e a realizzare il suo sogno di diventare un Ritmatista?

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action. For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison. Kelsier "snapped" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld's elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. Like him, she's a half-Skaa orphan, but she's lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed. This saga dares to ask a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails?
