Series: Mistborn 6
Narrated by Michael Kramer
Run Time: 14 hrs and 41 mins
Wax, Wayne, MeLaan, Steris, and Marasi set out on an epic adventure to find the bands of Mourning. They need to recover some spikes to restore a condra and keep the powerful Bands out of the bad guys hands.
- The prologue is pretty long but worth it. That could have been a separate short story altogether.
- I would have liked more background on Wax’s uncle and the history of how Wax’s sister fell into his hands.
- Brandon Sanderson is a master of intriguing characters. MeLaan’s hilarious in a dry way. The way she keeps pulling stuff out of her body is amazing, kind of gross, and amusing all at once.
- Wayne’s penchant for swapping out stuff is good for some light moments.
- Marasi and Steris are polar opposites. Steris’s lists were hilarious. Point 17 – framed for a crime. That poor innkeeper.
- The adventure works out well enough. There are some neat sort of steampunk turns.
- The twists at the end were okay, but there are really only so many twists, so they become predictable all the same.
This probably should not be your first Brandon Sanderson story. It’s 3rd in a trilogy and 6th of the Mistborn stories. I think there’s a 7th, but I’m not positive. Sanderson’s got so many series. Not all are gold, but this one (Mistborn) is excellent. I may return to the series some day and listen start to finish.
