The #1 "New York Times" bestselling 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 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.

The sixth Mistborn industrial revolution fantasy (after Shadows of Self)and the second featuring crime-fighter Waxillium Ladrian and his sidekick, Wayneis more steampunk than dystopian. The novel kicks off with Waxs wedding to Lady Steris, but the festivities are put on hold after an inconvenient flood, and then Wax learns that Harmony, one of the Faceless Immortals, is incommunicado. Soon Wax and Wayne head off to hunt for the Bands of Mourning, a mythical artifact associated with long-defeated Lord Ruler. This quest is classic Sanderson, with magic, intrigue, and witty repartee. All the familiar elements from the earlier Mistborn novels are here, including the metal-based magics of allomancy, feruchemy, and the forbidden art of hemalurgy (about which more is revealed over the course of this story). Open questions from earlier adventures are finally addressed, and Sanderson skillfully weaves in new opportunities for the dynamic duos next adventure. Die-hard fans will be delighted to finally learn more about the mysterious southern lands theyve previously heard about in passing. Agent: Joshua Bilmes, JABberwocky Literary Agency. (Jan.)
