The Alloy of Law by Brandon Sanderson (4 reviews)
Set three hundred years after Mistborn, the Alloy of Law revisits the world of Scadrial. On the edge of progress, railways and electricity are new inventions and the first steel framed skyscrapers are being built. But despite this, Allomancy and Feruchemy, the strange inherited abilities that played crucial roles in the first three books, still exist and are as needed as ever. It is in this world that Waxillium Ladrian, lawman from the Roughs and a rare Twinborn, must hang up his guns and take his place as head of his noble House in the heart of the city Elendel. Bored with his sudden switch from rounding up outlaws and protecting innocents to attending balls and trying to save his House from financial ruin, Wax starts to investigate a string of clever thefts and kidnappings, unaware he has just uncovered something more dangerous than he has ever faced. With fast-paced action, humorous dialogue, plot twists and engaging characters, fans of Brandon Sanderson will not be disappointed with his latest novel.

The Alloy of Law
This book is well written, but i never finished it. I found it hard to follow because I never read any of the first books in the series. This is vary well written though.
