jess (nu6586) | 1723 comments Hey Charlie! Im back to reading this!

Interested to see why this VenDell wants. I always think this kind of character has his own agenda...after all the good-turned bad people we’ve met during Mistborn.

I also really like Steris! She thinks of everything! Speaks to my type-A personality!

jess (nu6586) | 1723 comments Love Steris!!! Love her wacky weirdness.

I was really surprised by Wayne’s manipulation of Wax’ wedding. But other than that, I think Wayne is flawless!!!

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments I never thought I'd like Steris but she really is growing on me! I'm rooting for her now.

I was surprised by that too, I was a little disappointment in Wayne. He's still excellent, but that did lower my opinion of hi a little. I think he's just scared of losing Wax.

Chris  (haughtc) | 1769 comments I fell off this train but plan to get to Bands before too long. I was slow in reading Shadows so once I got done there I went back to Mark Lawrence. Once I am done with Holy Sister I plan on listening to Bands.

If I had lined it up as a print read, it would have been much much worse ;)

Andrew (andrew619) | 38 comments I'm very late, but I'm reading this book with great expectations. I finished Ch24 and it's awsome! I loved all these characters and the way they are grown in throughout story.
Sometimes I am confused by Wayne's behavior, (view spoiler), but I love the different misteries and plot I found.

One thing surprised me: in the chapter 17, when the team is on the coach and Marasi is studying the cube, at some point Steris speaks about it as "a kind of eldritch device". Why 'eldritch device'?
It's a reference about another series in the Cosmere?

I agree, Jess! The way Sanderson describes Wayne is strange, sometimes smart, other selfish or brilliant, when he pretends to be someone else. The dialogues between he and Wax are so funny, for example in the chapter 17, when (view spoiler)

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments @Andrew I think eldritch means something magic/ otherworldly. I'm not sure I'd it has any specific significance in the Cosmere though.

jess (nu6586) | 1723 comments I guess Id be told or always thought this was a self contained trilogy so it was both surprising and amazing to find the #4 is being written!

I always thought it was a trilogy, till now, when I finished the book and I found a postscript, dated 2016, about the fourth book "The Lost Metal". Unfortunately the page of this book here, report a worrying note:

It was estimated to be released in Fall 2019, although due to the Skyward series, it is more likely to be released sometime in 2020 or 2021.

We need to wait. :(


message 38: by jess (new) - rated it 4 stars

jess (nu6586) | 1723 comments Which is weird, because Sanderson is usually pretty consistant. But, when ideas strike, you gotta go with them...

I havent read Skyward and probably won’t for awhile.


message 39: by Charlie (new) - added it

Charlie (charlieridley) | 4553 comments I kind of wish it was a trilogy on one hand, to wrap up the story. But then again, more Mistborn is always a win.

Maybe the third book were so full of contents He has divided it in two parts. Better for us, even if we have to await a little!
