"The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the world of Mistborn with his first novel in the series since The Alloy of Law. With The Alloy of Law, 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.The trilogy's heroes are now figures of myth and legend, even objects of religious veneration. They are succeeded by wonderful new characters, chief among them Waxillium Ladrian, known as Wax, hereditary Lord of House Ladrian but also, until recently, a lawman in the ungoverned frontier region known as the Roughs. There he worked with his eccentric but effective buddy, Wayne. They are "twinborn," meaning they are able to use both Allomantic and Feruchemical magic. Shadows of Self shows Mistborn's society evolving as technology and magic mix, the economy grows, democracy contends with corruption, and religion becomes a growing cultural force, with four faiths competing for converts. This 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 unravel the conspiracy before civil strife stops Scadrial's progress in its tracks. Shadows of Self will give fans of The Alloy of Law everything they've been hoping for and, this being a Brandon Sanderson book, more, much more"--… (mais)

Classic Sanderson but I didn't feel it was innovative enough. I enjoyed the return to the Elendel Basin and seeing the characters in action but I don't feel that much really happened. I'm a huge fan of Sanderson and would definitely read this book, it just didn't live up to my lofty expectations for him. That being said, this book finally opened my eyes to the Cosmere and made me very excited for the next book. ( )

Shadows of Self takes place in the same timeline and with mostly the same characters as Alloy of Law. From what I've heard, this is supposed to be the actual first book of the second trilogy, with Alloy of Law being essentially a happy accident.

Wax and Wayne are back, in all their awesome glory. I still greatly enjoy what Sanderson did both with their Allomantic/Feruchemic abilities (they're more interesting / real feeling that the full Mistborn of the original trilogy) along with their great personalities. Wayne is the best sort of crazy and Wax is just as driven as ever. Marasi also gets a chance to shine as well, becoming a constable in her own right and putting her sharp mind, passion, and years of schooling to good use.

Plotwise, Shadows of Self is unfortunately a little weak. It's not terrible by itself and the events of the story (unrest from social inequality; paralleling the industrial revolution) make perfect sense in the context of the universe. The Big Bad is powerful, smart, driving, and perhaps a touch insane. There's a fairly big twist at the end that does a good job rocking everything you thought you knew. I really want to know how that's going to impact Wax's relationship with Harmony...

On the worldbuild side, Sanderson takes an already awesome world and magic system and adds a touch more depth to it. We don't particularly get any new abilities or metals but rather variations on what we've already seen. That doesn't make it any less interesting. Seeing exactly what a Kandra can do? More variations on Hemalurgy? Yes please. There are also some interesting parts about what Sazed/Harmony has become, along with hints (and more than hints) of other powers rising.

Overall, it's probably the weakest Mistborn book thus far, but still an excellent book on its own merits and a good bridge. I cannot wait to read the Bands of Mourning. I've heard great things.

Random favorite thing: the prologue. Young Wax, first out in the roughs was hilarious.

Probably 3.75 stars. Trouble is brewing in Elendel. The ruling class is corrupt and the working class is being stirred up by a mysterious party. Wax and Wayne jump in to try to avert disaster, assisted by Marasi, who is now part of the constabulary. A shapeshifter is killing key people to foment trouble, and Wax is joined by a kandra named MeLaan to try to stop this formidable adversary. The best part of this installment is tying the new trilogy back to the old one followedby the further development of cousins Steris and Marasi; however, the new main characters are simply not as compelling as the original ones in the first trilogy (i.e., Vin, Kelsier, etc.) ( )

This one was slower than the other mistborn books; I enjoyed the last half, but the first half was not up to his usual standards. ( )

With this being the 5th book in the Mistborn universe, and 2nd in the Wax and Wayne series, I wasn't expecting too much. Alloy of Law didn't hook me in anywhere near as much as Sandersons other works. Although it set the stage in a new time, it didn't evolve the world as much as I'd hoped. Shadows of Self, on the other hand, conjured some new ideas into the world and brought more light to the condra who I always was interested in hearing more from. ( )
