6 : The Bands of Mourning (1 of 2)

by Brandon Sanderson
Sep 26, 2016
6 Hours
Ages 13+
With The Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self, Brandon Sanderson surprised readers with a New York Times bestselling spinoff of his Mistborn books, set after the action of the trilogy, in a period corresponding to late 19th-century America.

Now, with The Bands of Mourning, Sanderson continues the story. The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metalminds 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.

Great by Jason (Posted on 8/26/2018)
The story continues for are characters. The story here does start to get a little bit more grand/epic/big. Not world ending but bigger. Even more threads are introduced that reach back to the original series. I believe (These last two part tend to blend together for me) this is the first big battle for the new series and is pretty awesome. Actually no there was a big battle in the first but this one is great. All the characters continue to use there magic in unique and fun ways. The performance was great (voice acting, sound effects, and music)
Great Book by Chase (Posted on 6/19/2018)
Excellent continuation in the Mistborn series.
So cool by Mr Ryan P (Posted on 6/1/2018)
Listening to the action scenes in this book are pure entertainment. I cannot wait for the 2nd part to come out
Still Good Sanderson by Odis0 (Posted on 11/29/2017)
I love the Wax and Wayne books, but this one was a little more self-aware than the others. Sterris had some meta comments about all the bad stuff that happened to the main crew, and it was a little corny.

Still, the characters are still great, and this book is fun. If you liked the other Mistborn books, I would definitely pick up this one.
very funny by Lionel (Posted on 2/24/2017)
Wayne is a hoot throughout! Great job again guys!
Very nice adaption! by Patrick (Posted on 1/3/2017)
The chemistry between the actors is great and there's some quite surprising relations evolving it this part.
Excellent by mark (Posted on 12/6/2016)
It's remarkable the difference between graphic audios and Amazon's standard rendition of the mistborn series. I've listened to both and any other than graphic audios seems like a black and white picture compared to a full colour 3d movie. Bands of mourning is a fantastic third installment of the wax and Wayne mistborn installment, carrying on seamlessly from one book to the next.
Wonderful by mike (Posted on 11/22/2016)
I love this series. Can't wait to get the next one. What can I say, it's great. Get it.
Bands of Mourning by Daniel (Posted on 10/24/2016)
I have never read the books (Final Empire and so on) or listen to any of the other books in the series. I feel like might need to hear some of the older ones to catch some of the "Oh" moments but its been really easy to follow so far and I don'e feel like I have really lost any major moments.

I am not sure about Steris and Wax; the whole thing seems off putting but that's just me. I love MeLaan and Wayne, I hope Marcey can come into her own in this one. I feel like Wax is getting a little stale (no pun if there is a pun -earwax- anyway), it seems like he has no real character development and is just bitter and boring in the this one; yes the events of the last book play heavily one him but that still no reason to be an assshat. In an odd way I kind of hope we get to see the "evil plan" form.

I have no idea how this is going to play out i can't wait for the next one. I saw this book at Barnes and Noble and was tempted to jump in a read and then I thought I REALLY want to wait hear the Graphic Audio rendition. This is as good as waiting for a new TV episode
Can't wait for Oct. 26! by Quinn (Posted on 10/10/2016)
I've already read the print version of this book, so I can't wait for the end scenes. I really liked how the hilarious hotel scene was handled, and I still love Wayne's music.
Save the Best for Last in This Trilogy by Scott Pike (Posted on 9/29/2016)
At least I assume this is the last book in this time period before he starts his urban fantasy series in a more modern world Scadriel/mistborn world. I like how this first part of the third book shows Wax dealing with his grief and anger for Lysa and his anger against Harmony/Saazyd. He has some justifiable reasons to be emotionally distraught even six months later. His whole life was manipulated and he even questions how much was his decisions or someone else s plans.

He finally gets pushed out of it as a new mystery involving his sister who has been mission is revealed tied to legendary artifacts called the Bands of Mourning that claim to grant anyone who wears them all the mistoborn powers and furekemical powers that the Lord Ruler wielded. Along with that there are hints at magical technology that interacts with the magic of the native magic users the Allomancers and Furechemists.

And most startiling of all if you follow Elantris or Stormlight Archives Sanderson's other series in the Cosmere universe are images that appear to depict the faces of the Parshend with red skin and black eyes. Another hint of contact with Odyeum shard from the Stormlight world of Roshar? If so this hints at a dire future for the world of Roshar if he has escaped that world.

Brilliantly Executed by Cassiopeia (Posted on 9/28/2016)
This is the absolute best so far, but that could potentially be because I'm a strict Sterillium fan and I was utterly thrilled by the portrayal of their relationship in this adaptation. That moment when Wax sees Steris setting up the heavy-kick rifle and screams her name? Perfection. There was so much raw emotion in that one word that I would have squealed if I wasn't in a public place. As it stands, I was grinning like an idiot. That, of course, is due to the fabulous performances of the actors and actresses, particularly Chris Genebach and Eva Wilhelm. Though I think my favorite voice actor by far is Bradley Smith as Wayne. I didn't recognize him for the longest time due to his accents, but he had a lull moment and I had a sudden "Isn't that Elend and Szeth?" Yes indeed. And he is fabulous. I'm so excited for the next installment and I can hardly wait the month I know it will take.
Delighted by Evelyn (Posted on 9/27/2016)
This is the Wax and Wayne Novel I was waiting for and it did not disappoint. Love this series.
Delighted by Evelyn (Posted on 9/27/2016)
This was the Wax and Wayne book I was waiting for and it did not disappoint. This presentation was engaging and hard to stop listening to. I wish it had been the whole book, but The Bands of Mourning is a longer book than the first two Wax and Wayne novels. I understand why it was broken up. They chose a good place to stop. I'm looking forward to part two.

My favorite part of the novel is Milan. Her voice actress is now the definitive voice for that character. All the other voice actors did a great job as well.

Love this series.
