Shadows of Self

A Mistborn Novel

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, who completed Robert Jordan's bestselling Wheel of Time? sequence, come a Mistborn adventure which combines terrorism and assassination, political intrigue and magical, martial-arts action.

When family obligations forced Waxillium Ladrian to forsake the frontier lands known as the Roughs and return to the metropolis of his birth to take his place as head of a noble House, he little imagined that the crime-fighting skills acquired during twenty years in the dusty plains would be just as applicable in the big city. Nor that being a talented Twinborn ? one who can use both Allomancy and Feruchemy, the dominant magics on Scadrial ? would not suffice.

This bustling, optimistic, but still fragile society will now face its first test by terrorism and assassination, both intended to stir up labour strife and religious conflict. Wax, his eccentric sidekick Wayne, and brilliant, beautiful young Marasi, now officially part of the constabulary, must unravel the conspiracy before civil strife can stop Scadrial's progress in its tracks.
