THE INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON BEHIND THE COSMERE

300 YEARS AFTER THE EVENTS OF THE MISTBORN TRILOGY

****

Join the hunt for a mysterious assassin

The criminal elite of Elendel were invited to an auction - which became a massacre, when an unknown assailant slaughtered everyone in attendance. Now Wax and Wayne, both able to use magic, both lawmen from the rough and ungoverned frontier territories, are on the case.

All the clues suggest the killer is a rogue kandra - a secretive, almost mythical, figure who acts from the shadows - called Bleeder . . . and that the governor is her next target. Bleeder, and the conspiracy behind the killings, has to be stopped . . . before the city is plunged into chaos.

MEDIA REVIEWS

this book will reward your attention - with fire, blood, excitement, and adventure. Pick it up, and start reading! - SF&F Reviews

a wonderful new addition to the series which I deeply love and it completely fulfilled my rather high expectations. It is a literary equivalent of a big-budget action flick that's impossible not to finish in a single sitting. Riveting stuff. - Upcoming4Me

An exciting new start to the second Mistborn era, Shadows of Self is a fantasy delight full of delicious adventure, friends of old, and a mystery to lose yourself in. - Heather's Reviews

. By itself Shadows of Self offers a great point to pick up the series, but in all I think a lot of the references to other books will be missed so pick up at least Alloy of Law before reading this one...Awesome stuff. Never a boring moment. - The Book Plank

Shadows of Self is another success for Brandon Sanderson, who continues to not only remain a reliable writer of the fantastic, but continuously surprises his readers with new styles, new voices, and new mysteries, building sturdily upon the foundations he laid in The Alloy of Law and the Mistborn series... Shadows of Self is a thoroughly satisfying read for Sanderson fans old and new. - Tor.com

Whether you're a fan of the original Mistborn trilogy or simply Sanderson's world-building and writing style, this book is definitely worth your time. - Geek Dad

“The detective story continues and expands with twists and turns.”

Rather than having three separate mysteries for Wax, Wayne and Marasi to solve in the series I was pleasantly surprised at the end of Allow of Law when Wax had only solved part of the criminal mystery that Mister Suit... More
