Halfway into Sanderson's Mistborn - Wax & Wayne 4 - THE LOST METAL and very enjoying the ride.

Felt like doing one of these threads.

You know the drill, spoilers for anything else Cosmere/Sanderson published to date are fair game, no blocks, no warnings.

No spoilers beyond where i've read - start your own thread if you need to or wait til i'm done.


Go.

Chapter 38... just at the cusp of halfway, the team is chasing leads on the big missile of DOOM. Marasi is in the Survivor's Cult safehouse...

That is rock solid proof Kelsier is alive and active. ...unless it's not him...

Loving these agents working around Marasi and trying to recruit her. She has come a LONG way as a character.

Code Names Are Stupid is now my favoritest character in the Cosmere. Yes, just because of her name.

I like weird old dude with his crystal parasite thing. Nice reminder the universe outside of Scadriel can be wierd.



Just looked at the chapter list to see where i was at in the book and i think i just spoilered myself something horrible.

Ch 40

Kelsier IS RUNNING THE GHOSTBLOODS!!!!!
...tho I there's enough hints at time differences between stories/worlds that the group in TSA over on Roshar may have nothing to do w these.

Hey, look at Sterys all neurotic and taking charge.


As much as I enjoy Wax and Wayne as characters, and they've come a long way and really shine in this book, Sterys and Marasi have really grown on me.

Ch 58

Extended listening run today....

So.... the Ghostbloods are basically Justice League Cosmere. LOVE it.

Wax n Wayne v the evil dopplegangers was a fun fight, as was Wax's hot pursuit of the fleeing baddie trucks. Dude went full Superman, nice!

I feel like i was supposed to recognize MoonLight's alt-personality but failed. Will Coppermind that later.

Marasi's infiltration of the Set base is a) taking too long; and B) ripping off The Island/The Village/that trope where a bunch of isolated people think the world ended and it didn't. It fits the story, but as it's developed the plot point just gets thinner and thinner and these people are basically idiots too stupid to notice they were 'saved' at gunpoint and fed a load of obvious lies.

The level of foreshadoing of something awful happening to Wayne is killing me here.

Final round against the dopplegangers as expected, right down to the 'castle'ing' manuever - great fun.

Sterys taking over the rescue effort was as satisfying as it had to be.


...and then...
...and then...
...and...

OH GODSDAMMIT

A few notes now that i have Just Finished....

SPOILERS FOR THE END OF BOOK
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
AND NOW YOU WILL BE SPOILED
YES SPOILED
SO MUUUUUCH SPOILERS YOUR
BRAIN WILL TURN TO A
SPOILERY MUSH


All in all a satisfying book tying up a satisfying series.

There was a LOT of Cosmere in this one. I'm going to have to Coppermind and reddit to find out whether i caught it all, but it was all fun to read.

Wayne... dammit, he went out with a bang. I can live w that but Sanderson surprised me w how much i actually started to like the character.

Nice touch upgrading Wax and Wayne to full Mistborn at the last possible moment. I hope we see or at least catch a ref to what happened next w Wax in the next trilo, it was a hell of a thing to tease and leave lie.

Strys and Marasi's evolutions were VERY well handled, impressive even, from mildly irritating characters to full blown heroes themselves.

Kelsier... damn he IS back. That's NUTS.

A lot of little hints re the rest of the Cosmere, the rd eyes army, the Ghostbloods' other homeworlds, the reference to the conflicts between Shards... all VERY interesting
