The new world has been greatly affected by Elend and Vin, and their adventures. But this story does not directly follow Vin nor Elend or indeed any of their brave companions, but another. A law keeper, living out in the roughs, far from organized society in the middle of nowhere, keeping law and order. Until it all goes wrong… Lessie dead, and no one to blame but himself. He finally answers the calls of his dying house in Elendel, fully expecting not to ever keep the law again. Until he is shown… maybe it’s what he was born to do?
