The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the world of Mistborn with the follow-up to Shadows of SelfWith The Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self, Brandon Sanderson surprised readers with a New York Times bestselling spinoff 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.

I still feel like I’m missing sections of the story. I feel like huge plot points are just being dumped on us ins...

Wax solves some mysteries and fails to solve some and dies (but not permanently) and discovers more ab...
As a fantasy novel, The Bands of Mourning was outstanding. It's edge of your seat and laugh out loud--at the same time. Start with Mistborn, and don't stop until you get here. So worth it. As a part of Sanderson's Cosmere, those who are NERD enough to care are going to be thrilled with the new clu...
