Waiting on Wednesday 10/21/15
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that lets us feature upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!
This book has actually been on my anticipated list for a long time, but as a general rule I try not to feature sequels in my Waiting on Wednesdays if I haven’t caught up with the series yet (otherwise, my TBR would be even longer!) So I’ve been meaning to feature this one for a while. With Shadows of Self read and reviewed earlier this fall, it’s so great to finally shout it to the world just how much I’m looking forward to another Wax and Wayne Mistborn adventure!
“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.”
