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.
