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.

Read the full prologue!

"Ah, yes", Elliott said, smiling. Victor's mention of House Sorelle brought back a few images about Elliott's meeting with Lady Avril, earlier that day.

"As a matter of fact, Lady Avril Sorelle was here when I arrived, waiting to show me the place." He looked down at his cup of wine, remembering her standing at the entrance. "She's an... interesting lady."

She was more than just interesting. There was something really intriguing about her. Her attitude, her shifts in mood, the way she burned pewter... Elliott found himself wanting to spend more time with her, to get to know her better.

Focus, Elliott!

He looked up suddenly, meeting Lord Cairhaim's eyes. How long had he been distracted? Elliott noticed he'd been absently tapping the floor with his right foot, following the rhythm of a children's song. The one Avril had played on the piano.

The music made Elliott think of something else. Something that he'd been thinking of during most of his trip to Fellise. He looked from left to right, his eyes stopping briefly on each member of House Cairhaim, "So," he said, laying back on his seat, his smile widening at the sudden thought of couples dancing to the music. "Will you all be going to the balls? I must admit, I'm pretty excited about them".

I really like this character! Absolutely love the unique way she uses bronze. I do think you repeated her name quite a lot during the first part of her story, and would've liked to see more synonyms or different ways of calling her, just to avoid that. However, that's just a small detail.
On a personal side-note, I'd like to see more of her noble side; Nightswift is really interesting, but Lailen herself will have to appear quite a lot during her stay in Luthadel. I'd like to see how well she can fit among the other nobles. I'm not saying you should add any of this to your app, of course, It's just one thing I would've liked to see, at least for a bit.

Again, I really like her story and personality. I can't approve your app or anything like that since I'm no admin, but I wanted to at least leave some of my thoughts here :D

Alright, just a few quick things, but first of all, remember that I'm no admin or anything like that, so this will be just an opinion.

'“I’m sorry,” said the nobleman. “I did, too. I think I’m on your side.” He said this in a hushed whisper, while making sure that no one important - seeming was nearby.' I think "-seeming" is a mistake, isn't it? Maybe it was supposed to be "-seemingly-" or something like that, or maybe my English is just failing.

When Lara enters the room with the skaa, they almost immediately take her in and give her a vial of metals. I'm thinking -just to add a few details to the story- one or more of them could be instantly kind to her, while one remains hesitant and doesn't really want to let her in. I think it would be natural, given the fact that they are rebels. Secrecy must be quite important for them. Also, they give her the vial of metals without asking almost anything. Maybe they'd ask her if she's an Allomancer, or why was Lane interested in her, and if she doesn't know what to say -or if she's still too frightened to answer-, the kindest of the group could offer her a drink or something like that.

All of what I just said about the skaa in the room isn't just useful to give the story a few deeper details; it will help people stand in Lara's shoes. By showing how everyone in the group is -or at least the most important ones-, and by giving the people a short description, as well as Lara's opinion on each of them, you'll give the readers a more emotional connection to your character, therefore making Lara feel a lot more natural, believable. Just to give you an example, I'd really suggest you re-read the introduction of Kelsier's crew in Mistborn, when they enter Camon's lair and meet Vin for the first time. The way Brandon gives insight on Vin's thoughts about each of the members of the group -specially Clubs and Breeze- is something I always loved.

Again, this is just an opinion, and I'm no admin or anything like that. Hope you find this comment useful!

Victor Cairhaim’s family introduction had obviously been planned in detail. Elliott would have preferred something more authentic or improvised, but he decided to play along anyway. He looked at the young Cairhaim boy in front of him, took the bottle of wine from his hands, and nodded politely in Lord Cairhaim’s direction.

“Thank you,” he said, carefully putting the bottle on the table in front of him. A servant came quickly and, after looking at him to get a confirmation, opened the bottle and poured a bit of wine into six cups.

Elliott took his cup and leaned back, looking at the family in front of him. He hadn’t felt any Allomantic pulses so far, but he knew, thanks to Veeras, that Victor Cairhaim was a Rioter. Either the man hadn’t used his Allomancy yet, or there was a Coppercloud in the room. Taking a sip of his wine, he decided to flare his bronze for a moment, hoping to at least detect a soft pulse.

Nothing. No rhythm to follow, no music to make the meeting more interesting. At least the wine wasn’t bad. Elliott didn’t know much about wine, save for the fact that he liked drinking it.

“This wine’s really good,” he said, smiling softly. Not knowing what else to say, he decided to just take another sip of his wine, and stay in silence, his eyes travelling from one member of House Cairhaim to the next. Lord Cairhaim’s obviously rehearsed introduction made one thing pretty clear; either they performed the same act for every noble man and woman they met, or they had an interest in House Faarskar. Either way, Elliott was sure that Victor would speak again soon.
