Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author returns to the world of Mistborn with the follow-up to Shadows of Self. With The Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self, Brandon Sanderson surprised his audience with a New York Times best-selling spin-off of his Mistborn books, set after the action of the trilogy, in a period corresponding to late 19th-century America. Now, with The Bands of Mourning, Sanderson continues the story.
The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metalminds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands as well as writings in a language that no one can read. Waxillium Ladrian is recruited to travel south to the city of New Seran to investigate. Along the way he discovers hints that point to the true goals of his uncle Edwarn and the shadowy organization known as The Set.

Wax and Wayne are Back!!!

This is the sixth book in the “Mistborn,” series and third with Wax and his side kick Wayne. It is still set in the early industrial city of Ladrian, three hundred years after the end of the first trilogy. The same magic systems of Allomancy and Feruchemy are still prevalent and through the story we learn more about the forbidden art of “Hemalurgy.
I believe this is a great addition to the Mistborn series, the story flows with more of the action that was prevalent in the first three books. Sanderson fills in some gaps that had been left from the other story lines and I really like the development of Steris and Marasi. We also learn more about the southern lands that had only been briefly mentioned before. I thought this was the end of the double trilogy but Sanderson leaves the door open for more adventures for Wax and Wayne; yes please..
About the narrator; Michael Kramer has always given a fantastic performance, this series would not have the same dynamic impact without him.

NOT disapointed!

Any additional comments?

With Sanderson's words and Kramer's voice, I fell comfortably back into the Cosmere, with this book. Several times I found myself being drawn back into the first 3 Mistborn books, with more than one "AHH" and "AHA!" moments. A lot of secrets, holes, and loose ends seem to start to pull together in this, the next to last, book. My re-acquaintance with the characters was spontaneous and by the end of the book, my knowledge of the world Sanderson is building is several layers stronger. From beginning to end, my presumptions and predictions were proven wrong, with a twist here or a lurch there. I simply could not stop listening to this book. By the last couple of chapters, I was literally listening with a clenched fist, at my chest, and by the end, I was left with my mouth hanging open. My anticipation for the next Mistborn novel is almost too much to bear. Brandon Sanderson will be the death of me.
