Shadows of SelfTsThis bustling optimistic but still shaky society now faces its first instance of terrorism crimes intended to stir up labor strife and religious conflict Wax and Wayne assisted by the lovely brilliant Marasi must u Super fast re read with some friends at Buddies Books and Baubles before Bands of Mourning Knowing the ending made certain parts of this book just heartbreaking I love that almost every BS book I reread I enjoy just as much if not the second time through All the original Mistborn nostalgia was FAN FREAKING TASTIC45 Faceless Immortal Stars The Fan Girl Part of My Review Deal with it he is like my FAVORITE fantasy authorbut there will be a real review below this I am in AWE yet again that the same man who had currently undertaken the task of writing all the planned books in The Cosmere something like 36 books when complete but currently 17 books strong also wrote a superhero trilogy The Reckoners something a little on the crazy side Legion and hey why not add in a middle grade series or two just for fun I mean this book here wasn’t even originally planned Sanderson was writing a novella that was supposed to keep us interested in the Mistborn world and it turned into a semi standalone book and a trilogyI might even believe thisAnd it isn’t like he is just putting out novels to put out novels They are complete stories with intricate worlds planned out magic systems cohesive plots great characters AND just to top it all off he has fantastic artwork including maps journal pages armorfashion designs creature drawing etc throughout One of the reasons I’m gonna fangirl a little right here is that both Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self it is a brand new world even though it is a Mistborn novel BS took the events of The Final Empire and wove them into how they would have shaped society 300 years after the fact How the stories of those days would become lore and work into religion culture and superstition Down to the families that survived how alomancy is affected and how the surroundings are named It is intricate and natural all at the same time Honestly in my opinion BS has one of the greatest imaginative minds in the fantasy genre Completely Spoiler Free Section First things first Do you need to have read the original Mistborn series to read this book Technically no you don’t BUTthere are many references to what happened in The Final Empire and while I would say that you could totally read Alloy of Law without reading Mistborn 1 3 I believe wholeheartedly that the enjoyment of this book in particular would be decreased if you hadn’t read them I actually had just finished a re read of the first three of the series and was really glad because I picked out so many small details added inThe thing that I really love about Brandon Sanderson BS novels is that I have no trouble picturing myself in the story He tells the story in a way that I’m shown the buildings and the surroundings I’m given insight into the culture religion and magic system and it is done in such a way that it is in the story and almost never feels like an info dump This is amazing especially if you look at the size and complexity of the world he is buildingShadows of Self like Alloy of Law is sort of a mash up of Mistborn World Steampunk Industrial Revolution Wild Wild West It has a lot humor in it than The Final Empire and it feels generally lighter The banter and humor of Wax Wayne and Marasi is fantastic and sets the tone of the entire story Honestly the Bromance between Wax and Wayne is my favorite in fantasy slightly beating out Tyrion and Brom they are hilarious on page together and actually Wayne is hilarious and scene stealer all on his own too But don’t let that fool you there are still a few gut punching moments that really knocked me in the feelings Favorite Character in this book – Wayne Looking through my uotes he has the most highlights He says deep insightful things one minute and then is ridiculous the next But I smile every time he is on page there are Wayne uotes below in the semi spoilery review but we also get to see into a deeper side of Wayne and I loved the depth it gave his characterFavorite New Character – MeLaanAlthough it can be argued she is an old characterbut semantics She added some insight into the days just after The Final Empire ended and what became of her people Also I really loved the way she played with the team I hope she is a player in the next book as wellMost Improved Character Steris Don’t get me wrong I’m still completely on the WaxMarasi ship and it might take a Chasmfiend or Koloss Warlord to sink that but Steris really grew on me this book I have always liked her and her stiff overthinking overplanning ways hey I can relate but she really shined in this She isn’t like a lot of female characters in fantasy and I like the non emotional relationship that she and Wax have and how she deals with him She has no illusions about who or what he is and just plans around it Honestly her last scene in this bookGAH no words really Because I loved her in that moment and I could even see how she and Wax might become really good friends or perhaps BUT I’m sailing on the good ship MaraWax or Waxasi and there isn’t a Chasmfiend in sight yet sosorry SterisThe new danger is a serial killer that seems to be trying to destabilize the city and throw it into a chaos similar to the events that led up to the last big shift of power in recent history cough Mistborn cough Wax Marasi Wayne and others are searching trying to figure out who is next on the hit list and prevent the city from undergoing another revolution The perpetrator of the events is messing with Wax specifically trying to throw him off and he will need to outthink someone trickier and smarter than himself or another revolution will happen Semi Spoiler Review Section all bigreal spoilers will be tagged but uotes everywhere Where to begin I’m still processing my feelings about this book because that ending left me sosowell you will know when you get there Everyone just give Wax a virtual hug he needs itThe Humor is one of the things that I’ve really enjoyed about series of Mistborn books There are so many funny instances and dialogue that I laughed so many times throughout the story “I heard voices in my head once too you know”“You did”“Sure Gave me a fright I banged my head against the wall until I went unconscious Never heard them again Ha Showed ’em good I did If rats move in best thing to do is to burn the nest and send ’em packing”“And the nest was your head”“Yup”Steris stopped on a page in her notebook then turned it around There in her neat handwriting was a detailed agenda for their evening at the party The third entry read 817 Way into the building likely blocked by traffic Lord Waxillium carries us up to the top floor by Allomancy which is completely inappropriate and at the same time breathtaking He raised an eyebrow checking his pocket watch which he carried in his gunbelt—not his vest—to be easily dropped with his other metals “It’s 813 You’re slipping”Regular folk they called something after what it was You’d say “What’s that Kell” And they’d say “That That there’s the crapper” And you’d reply “What do you do with it” And they’d say “Well Wayne that’s where you put your crap” It made sense But rich folk they had a different word for the crapper They’d call it a “commode” or a “washroom” That way when someone asked for the crapper they knew it was a person they needed to oppress The Characters are three dimensional Wax has a complicated past with his history in the roughs and trying to be both a Lord to his house and a Lawman It’s a difficult place to be and maybe he is being pulled in too many directions one day he will have to decide who he is An Allowmancer or TerrismanLord or LawmanPawn or Sword no wonder he is a little surly “What’s wrong with you lately” Marasi demanded “You complain about the motorcar about me being here about your tea being too hot in the morning One would almost think you’d made some horrible life decision that you regret deep down Wonder what it could be” Wax kept his eyes forward In the mirror he saw Wayne lean back in and raise his eyebrows “She might have a point mate”“You’re not helping”“Wasn’t intending to” Wayne said “Fortunately I know which horrible life decision she’s talkin’ about You really should have bought that hat we looked at last week It was lucky I’ve got a fifth sense for these things” Wayne while usually the fun loving sort has a demon in his past that he is still trying in his own way to atone for I liked seeing what he puts himself through in an effort to make some sort of recompense for his greatest sin Wayne has a peculiar way of looking at the world and some of it make amazing sense while other parts of it are ridiculous But that just makes him all the lovable “I coulda delivered that you know”“You she would shoot” Wax said“Only ’cuz she likes me” Wayne said smiling He’d have welcomed an excuse to go see Ranette This night was getting darker and darker it seemed“Wayne” Wax said “You know she doesn’t actually like you”“You always say that but you’re just not seein’ the truth Wax”“She tries to kill you” “To keep me alive” Wayne said “She knows I live a dangerous life So keepin’ me on my toes is the best way to make sure I stick around” I’m almost hoping that he wins her heart one of these daysMarasi didn’t get a lot of development She is now working with the constables and Wax has tried his hardest to put some distance between them after the initial attraction that was sparked in Alloy of Law She seems to be over her semi hero worship of his time in the roughs though and has become secure in herself overall Her alomancy even came in handy a time or two in this story and I was glad to see how it could be useful in certain situations She is extremely competent and I believe that she and Wax are a good team hence my being on the MaraWax ship My only disappointment is that those sparks from book 1 are totally missing here as Wax is committed to the arranged marriage with Steris and Marasi is trying to have a professional relationship with him since he is supposed to marry her half sister I missed the sparks The Tie In’s To the Original Mistborn Series lots of little spoilers in this section so I’m tagging the entire thingview spoilerI’m going to suee a little here because there are still Kandra I wasn’t sure what happened after the events of The Final Empire and I was pretty sure I caught one or two in Alloy of Law but now there is conformation that the Kandra are still aroundhappy danceMeLaan coming onto the scene was fantastic and I loved learning how the Kandra now live within society instead of hidden away She was such a great addition to the story and the team I liked how she is so different from the Kandra that we met in The Final Empire MeLaan finished her beer then dramatically held up her hand The palm split forming lips which then let out a soft belch“Cheating” Wayne said“Just using what Father gave me” MeLaan said “Don’t tell me you wouldn’t belch out of other body parts if you could”“Well” Wayne said “now that you mention it I can make a real interestin’ sound wif—” AND we get to see TenSoon Can I just say that I was so excited that he was still around even if he isn’t glad that his name is known “I’ve read about you” Wax said “Thrilling” the kandra growled “I’m so happy Sazed included me in his little book so that drunk people can curse by my name”“They do that” “Yes” The wolfhound growled uietly in the back of his throat “There are stuffed toys too” “Oh yeah” Wax said “Soonie cubs I’ve seen those around” But the remembrances of Vin mostly and Elend sometimes choked me up a bit This was my favorite uote in the entire book and it is about Vin herself I thought it was completely fitting of who she was “What was she like As a person I mean” “She was strong and vulnerable all at once” TenSoon whispered “She was my last master and my greatest She had a way of pouring everything of herself into what she did When she fought she was the blade When she loved she was the kiss There is also a little section where Wax thinks he sees her outline in the mistdare I hope that she is still somehow around The Historica a section of the Words of Founding said she had melded with the mists She had taken them upon herself becoming their guardian as they became her essence As the Survivor watched over all who struggled Vin watched over those in the night Sometimes he felt he could see her form in their patterns slight of frame short hair splayed out as she moved mistcloak fluttering behind her It was a fancy wasn’t itPlease don’t just be fancyI would love it is Vin somehow will play a part in this Because view spoilerwho better to help slay a god than dare I say it another godwho might be Vinesk hide spoiler
