Publisher Description

The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series and his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action, his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan's epic wheel of time sequence. But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story, building on the incredible success of THE ALLOY OF LAW.

The new Mistborn books move the series into a richly imagined 19th century analogue world with elements of the wild west mixed with magic and science. It's a wonderful concoction from a master storyteller.

Sanderson has the knack of giving the epic fantasy reader exactly what they want. This ability has thrown him to the forefront of the genre and this novel will take him to the next level.

Unfortunately weak...

After the steller Mistborn trilogy and extremely enjoyable Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self I was extremely excited for the next Mistborn novel. But unfortunatley with the exception of a couple of great character moments with the main crew (Wax, Wayne, Marasi and Steris) I was disapointed by the Bands of Mourning, which felt like a generic action adventure story more reminicent of a february Hollywood flop than the epic fantasy I’ve come to expect from Sanderson. But with it’s interesting reveals and connections to the greater Cosmere (including cameos both expected and unexpected) I managed to enjoy the book for what it’s worth, even if it isn’t up there with some of Sanderson’s best work.
