Book Overview: 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.

"Sanderson is an evil genius. There is simply no other way to describe what he's managed to pull off in this transcendent final volume of his Mistborn trilogy." --RT Book Reviews (Gold Medal, Top Pick!) on The Hero of Ages

"It's rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise." -- Orson Scott Card

"Sanderson is crafting an extremely well-thought out saga with Mistborn, one that looks to stand above the pack of his literary peers. The magic system is perfectly detailed, the world, though not completely revealed, has a great sense of natural logic to it, and the characters are a reflection of both." -- SFFWorld

"Intrigue, politics, and conspiracies mesh complexly in a world Sanderson realizes in satisfying depth and peoples with impressive characters." -- Booklist on Mistborn

"Highly recommended to anyone hungry for a good read." -- Robin Hobb on Mistborn

"Enjoyable, adventurous read." -- Locus on Mistborn

Born on December 19, 1975, in Lincoln, Nebraska, Brandon Sanderson is an American author renowned globally for his high fantasy works. Known for his intricate magic systems and well-developed characters, Sanderson stands as a household name in the realm of fantasy literature. He rose to unprecedented fame with his New York Times bestselling series, Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive, and his significant contribution to the successful completion of the late Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series. Sanderson's journey to becoming a prolific author began from Brigham Young University, where he received his Bachelor's degree in English. After a brief stint with biochemistry, he realized his true calling laid in the art of storytelling, prompting him to pursue a Master's degree in Creative Writing. In 2005, he published his debut work, Elantris, which received critical acclaim and signaled his arrival in the literary scene. Beyond his solo creations, Sanderson is revered for his commendable effort in continuing Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series after the author's sudden demise. Not only did he manage to retain the series' essence, but he also gave it a fitting conclusion that was praised by critics and fans alike. Today, alongside triumphing over diverse literary genres, Sanderson remains passionately involved in teaching creative writing at his Alma mater, Brigham Young University.
