From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.
Three hundred years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy, Scadrial is now on the verge of modernity, with railroads to supplement the canals, electric lighting in the streets and the homes of the wealthy, and the first steel-framed skyscrapers racing for the clouds.
The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metal minds 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.

Sanderson te quierodio. Te quiero porque me has metido de lleno en tu Cosmere con acción trepidante, personajes geniales y mucho amor.

Te odio porque necesito mucho MUCHO más. ( )

Allik is the best and MeLaan deserves all the kudos for having her head on right about the important things.

Like how big your bust should be for formal wear.

Anyhow this ended better even if it reminded me why Harmony annoys me. Let's see what happens next!!

Gonna read Secret History next. Yes yes I know it's Kelsier specific but well you do what you gotta. Even if it means dealing with a narcissist with a Savior Complex. ( )

This book was not as compelling as the first three Mistborn books. Wax, Wayne, Marasi and Steris are all a bit to caricatured, so they can be funny and have great adventures, but they seem flat and lifeless. The grand quest they find themselves on in this book seemed almost like an aside to their main goals, so while it is dramatic, it comes across as a muted adventure, with the characters' personal quests more or less finished long before they go after the Bands. But, with several books of character development published, perhaps these characters will feel more well-crafted and life-like in the next book. ( )

My favorite of the Mistborn series thusfar. Wayne and Steris truly come into their own in this one, and the action is delightful. ( )

Great addition to a great series. Wayne remains my favorite character, and he keeps on performing in this book. There's something awesome about speed bubbles and dueling canes.

The tech advanced quite a bit in this book from the first two of the series, and I wasn't totally ready for that. I like the wild west feel. The first trilogy was a bit more medieval, and it's fun to see technology and culture progress. It was just a little fast for me in this series.

Can't wait for the next in the series. Can't get enough of Wax and Wayne. ( )
