With The Alloy of Law, Brandon Sanderson surprised listeners with a New York Times best-selling spinoff of his Mistborn audiobooks, 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 audiobook, more - much more.

Leider den Erwartungen nicht gerecht geworden
Leider wird dieser Band seinen Vorgängern nicht gerecht. Die Story ist recht einfach und vorhersehbar, der Schluss jedoch unerwartet und für mich ehr enttäuschen.
Ich will trotzdem wissen wie es weiter geht.

Another Great Story by Sanderson
A thrill of a story that is hard to turn off once you start listening. The story continues with the characters from "Alloy of Law", but it is not necessary to read or hear before hearing this story. The characters are all naturally re-introduced to us, and the story is a new one.
The narrator is fine. He has distinct voices for every character, and even have separate tone for thoughts of characters, andhe is not droning mechanical as much as he used to in his earlier narrations of Sanderson books. Only the voice of narrator of the book sounds a bit mechanical at times, while the characters sounds fine. The slow carefull tempo also makes it excelent for speeding up to 1.25 or 1.5 in the Audible app.
