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.

Review of 'Shadows of Self: A Mistborn Novel [Paperback] Brandon Sanderson' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

This was another great book by Brandon Sanderson. The Mistborn series is one of his most popular and it's easy to see why. It combines interesting characters, action-packed plots, and an intricate world with amazing magic. While I'm not a fan of Western-type stories and this was not as good as the original trilogy, Shadows of Self was still fun and an enjoyable read. Most interesting for me were the little details thrown at the end that hint at future story developments.
