Author: Sanderson B. Three novels from the cycle of Vax and Wayne in one book! Once the world was plunged into darkness and littered with ashes, but a new era has come - the era of steam and electricity, trains and skyscrapers. Twenty years ago, Vaxillium Ladrian, the heir to the noble House, left the great city of Elelendel to protect law and order in the distant Wildlands. Having suffered a bereavement, he decides to return and start life anew. But he is waiting for a chain of events that will make you think of the craft of the lawyer and get the revolvers out of the chest. A gang of incredibly cunning and smart criminals is operating in the city, and no one can cope with them? Someone sowing confusion, trying to plunge Elelendel into chaos? Is the ominous secret society making plans that can irreparably change the fate of all mankind? Vaxillium Ladrian and his friends fearlessly tackle the mystery of another secret, even if you have to deal with powerful enemies, their own past, mythical creatures and legendary artifacts.
