The Lost Previews: Lost Metal Blurb


Our preview show with Danielle and Marvin is back, this time talking about The Lost Metal, the fourth Mistborn Era 2 novel that comes out November 15th, 2022! Preview chapters have not begun yet, and we don't know when they will, but we do have an extremely spicy blurb/synopsis for the book, and that's what we're talking about today!

Link to the blurb: https://www.tor.com/2021/12/06/book-announcements-the-lost-metal-a-mistborn-novel-from-brandon-sanderson/

A draft of Lost Metal's prologue is out (and apparently Brandon read chapters 1 and 2 at the November Mini-Con, but we don't have the audio for this yet), and you can read the prologue here: https://wob.coppermind.net/events/472/#e14863

The sweet Marasi thumbnail is by Dan Watson and will be in the Alloy leatherbound: https://www.artstation.com/artwork/q9Q0Gn
The Waxillium background is also by Dan Watson and will be in the leatherbounds (and animated with permission by Marvin): https://www.instagram.com/p/CLH1UFYj0Vw/

The Ghostbloods are definitely the ones recruiting Marasi. Kelsier's stated goal at the end of Secret History is to protect Scadrial. Just because the people recruiting her are off-worlders that doesn't mean they work for an off-world organization. If these people have Invested arts outside of Allomancy and Feruchemy, which it sounds like from the blurb, Kelsier probably brought them in to be an Outside Context Problem for any Scadrian opponents he has. I doubt we'll get too much about Roshar so as not to spoil SA5. The safe bet is an Autonomy Avatar.

I do feel like the Ghostbloods are the obvious choice, but I also feel like Brandon could be trying to mislead us. I do like the idea that its the Ire, or another group. I could see it going either way.

The majority of fans probably aren't as clued in as Sharders are.  So I tend to go toward the obvious because he's laid the clues out and the majority of readers will be surprised.

I would like it if at least part of the desire to recruit Marasi is due to her being a Pulser...perhaps by a group of Investiture physicists trying to solve the FTL conundrum.

Maybe not even the FTL problem. What if a group of Investiture engineers designed a device that could let her put the whole city of Bilming in a cadmium bubble...

Or maybe not even that... They could just want her to put the bomb/ weapon in a cadmium bubble.
