  • The Bands of Mourning: Changing Everything, For Better and For Worse

    Of the books in Mistborn era 2, I found getting through this one to be the most difficult. After Shadows of Self, I was pretty drained on era 2. My optimism towards this sequel series was starting to fade. But I got through it. And I’m glad I did. I would say that this is […]

But I’m not a patient man. If you guys didn’t know that at this point, I’d be pretty shocked. The mentor character is […]
