First 6 Chapters of 'The Alloy of Law' for free.

Fans of Brandon Sanderson rejoice!  As one of the leading fantasy authors of the day, Sanderson releases the first sequel to his popular Mistborn Trilogy.  'The Alloy of Law' due out on Nov. 8 of this year, takes place hundred of years after the events of the original trilogy but still incorporates the same magic system of that trilogy.  Here is the blurb from Amazon:

Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads, electric lighting, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.

Yet even as science and technology are reaching new heights, the old magics of Allomancy and Feruchemy continue to play a role in this reborn world. Out in the frontier lands known as the Roughs, they are crucial tools for the brave men and women attempting to establish order and justice. 

One such is Waxillium Ladrian, a rare Twinborn, who can Push on metals with his Allomancy and use Feruchemy to become lighter or heavier at will. After twenty years in the Roughs, Wax has been forced by family tragedy to return to the metropolis of Elendel. Now he must reluctantly put away his guns and assume the duties and dignity incumbent upon the head of a noble house. Or so he thinks, until he learns that the mansions and elegant tree-lined streets of the city can be even more dangerous than the dusty plains of the Roughs.

The prologue and first six chapters of 'The Alloy of Law' are available for download on Kindle here.  This is sure to hold you over until the entire books release in a little less than two weeks.
