The supposedly undefeatable and immortal Lord Ruler has been overthrown by Vin, a former street urchin, plunging Luthadel into chaos. However, the rebellion’s leader and Vin’s mentor, Kelsier, who had become the new savior of Luthadel, is now deceased. The task of rebuilding Luthadel and establishing its political structure falls to the crew. Straff Venture, the father of Elend Venture, has surrounded Luthadel with his army, posing a threat to the fledgling democracy. To Vin’s concern, she has become the central figure of a new religion known as “The Church of the Survivor,” which deifies Kelsier. Additionally, the mists that arrive every night have become increasingly erratic since the demise of the Lord Ruler, and the reason behind this remains unknown.
