Of the Mistborn Series, I am still listening to the first audio book. But I think this question won't be answered by me reading further:
Kelsier is told (I forget whom by) that she has a slither of Brass she uses to sooth people, hidden in a glove or sleeve. How is this possible (burning on only skin contact)? Allomantic powers come from ingesting flakes, and 'burning' them (in the stomach).
What is she doing? Has she previously swallowed the standard flakes, and these are rumours?
