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.

Action! Comedy! Fun! Sanderson At His Best!

There is so much to love in this book! I was hooked from the beginning and was up all night!

What stands out above all for myself, is the characters Wayne and Steris. They are so weird, and unique, and their characters are brought to life so well in this book! Their quirky banter had me in stitches! From the beginning, I found myself identifying with all the characters and cheering them on as they evolve and grow!

Sanderson has always had amazing magic systems and world building, but this book brings his characterization to new heights.

If you liked the first two, you will LOVE this one. Go get it now! If you are new to the series, read from the beginning!

Michael Kramer, you had me laughing so hard, great job!
