Official Cover And Synopsis Revealed For 'The Bands of Mourning' By Brandon Sanderson

At the revelation of the new cover for Brandon Sanderson's Shadows of Self, I said that it almost feels like the covers of Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden books. It's not bad at all, but a complete because I love the covers of the latter books. Now I can almost say it actually is. With the recent unveiling of the next book in the series, The Bands of Mourning, my suspicion has been somehow confirmed.

This is the third in the second generation Mistborn novels, which is labeled as Wax and Wayne series, and the sixth novel in the entirety of the series. The cover features the usual numbers of characters, which artist Chris McGrath have greatly rendered. Shiver with cold in the cover's blueness.

Check out the new cover of The Bands of Mourning (Mistborn #6) by Brandon Sanderson.

Don't they just look lovely together? Expect another book from this second generation Mistborn novel series.


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. But now 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, and along the way he discovers hints that point to the true goals of his uncle Edwarn and the shadowy organization known as The Set.

Mistborn: The Bands of Mourning by Brandon Sanderson hits shelves on on January 26, 2016.
