The Lord Ruler's perfect capital city, Luthadel, is doing the impossible: rebelling. Skaa half-breeds are being taught the power of Allomancy, something that the Lord Ruler's obligators said only existed in the nobility. The enslaved skaa, with their murderous benefactor, now fight back against a living god's oppression.

So, the Inquisition was formed. The nobles begin to fear assassination from all sides. The times of nobility Mistborn killing each other are over. The Steel Inquisitors look for aristocrat traitors and insurgent skaa, and the skaa try with all their strength to merely survive. The Lord Ruler's perfect Final Empire is slowly devolving into chaos.

Hello all!

I'm a music teacher by trade and an aspiring writer by hobby. it is a goal of mine to write a novel. I have a desire to write a sci-fi/fantasy novel and a detective novel. Hey - maybe i can do both of them in the same one!

I'm always looking to get better at writing, and obviously there is no substitute for practice. However, I also try to look up and read about strategies for improving my craft, so I thought it would be good to have a discussion about what resources we use to help improve our own writing.

I'm currently reading How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy by Orson Scott Card. What sort of things are you using?

I have a bunch of books that I need to read/reread on writing! I highly recommend Gotham Writers Workshop classes. I've taken Science Fiction & Fantasy I & II, and Mystery II. My problem is I get away from writing for a while and then regress in terms of skill!
