Review: The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn #6) by Brandon Sanderson

Summary from Goodreads:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn series is a heist story of political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

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.


I have been reading the Mistborn series for 6 years now and I am finally all caught up! Yay. Sadly, this latest one was not my favorite of the series.

I struggled with the middle/end of the third book of the Mistbort: Era 2 series. The pacing was off and I was pulled from the story. I believe it was the main storyline/plot we follow in the novel that I did not connect with this time around.

I ended up still enjoying how the main plot unfolded and following our three main characters, Wax, Wayne, and Marasi. I also came to love Steris and the relationship between her and Wax.

I recommend checking out the Mistborn series. It is still one of my favorite Fantasy series and I am looking forward to the last novel in the series.


3.5 Stars Out of 5 Stars.


I'm person who loves reviewing, reading, talking about, and just being around books!
