The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson

The Bands of Mourning is started well after the events of Shadows of Self, the second book in the Mistborn Era 2 series. Despite not being a fan of this era, I had developed a liking for certain characters in this series.

I’m currently 50% into the book. I like Steris’s character the most and I’m glad her character is expanding more than the previous books. MeLaan was another favorite character of mine but this book didn’t give her much to do.

I’m still sticking to not liking Wayne & Marasi. They get on my nerves for some reason. Let’s see how the reading journey goes with this one.

Amazon Blurb of The Bands of Mourning

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.
