Lost Metal – book cover and description
Waxillium Ladrian, a lawman from the Wilds turned senator in a big city, followed for years the trail of a mysterious organization called the Circle, led by his late uncle and sister, who kidnapped people from Allomancer families. When Detective Marasi Colms and her partner Wayne stumble upon a weapons warehouse destined for Bilming, one of the outer cities, a new lead emerges. The conflict between the capital of Elendel and the outer cities benefits the Circle, their tentacles now extending to the Senate of Elendel, and Bilming is even more entangled.
After Wax discovers a new type of explosive with unprecedented destructive power and realizes that the Circle surely already knows it, the immortal kandra reveals that Harmony’s power does not reach Bilming. This means that the city has fallen under the influence of another god – Trell, whom the Circle worships. And Trell isn’t the only being from the wider cosmere – Marasi is recruited by off-worlders with strange abilities who claim their goal is to protect Scadrial…at all costs.
Wax must decide whether to put aside his conflict with God and become the Sword again, forged by Harmony. If no one dares to become the hero that Scadrial needs, the planet and its millions of inhabitants face a violent and tragic end.
