"The #1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the world of Mistborn with his first novel in the series since The Alloy of Law. With The Alloy of Law, 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.The trilogy's heroes are now figures of myth and legend, even objects of religious veneration. They are succeeded by wonderful new characters, chief among them Waxillium Ladrian, known as Wax, hereditary Lord of House Ladrian but also, until recently, a lawman in the ungoverned frontier region known as the Roughs. There he worked with his eccentric but effective buddy, Wayne. They are "twinborn," meaning they are able to use both Allomantic and Feruchemical magic. 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"--… (mer)

This one was slower than the other mistborn books; I enjoyed the last half, but the first half was not up to his usual standards. ( )

With this being the 5th book in the Mistborn universe, and 2nd in the Wax and Wayne series, I wasn't expecting too much. Alloy of Law didn't hook me in anywhere near as much as Sandersons other works. Although it set the stage in a new time, it didn't evolve the world as much as I'd hoped. Shadows of Self, on the other hand, conjured some new ideas into the world and brought more light to the condra who I always was interested in hearing more from. ( )

Lots of humor with the magic. ( )

It feels like a "second book", a piece in the middle of series, but in the best possible way. Although I'm yet to read the last book, I think Shadow of Self was the bridge between the two, way to get the plot and the story to the finale. But is fast paced, quick and entertaining read, so it does not matter. It doesn't drag in the way many of the middle books in the series do and it has all the good writing, characters and plot twist Sanderson always provides in his book, although it kinda just moves the story further – the plot is not that elaborate as the first book and is quite straight forward, little bit predictable. Also other characters do not get that much attention, the whole book is mostly from Waxes or Waynes point of view, which is quite different from Alloy of Law. But I enjoyed the book a lot I have to say. ( )
