I'm generally bad at remembering details and stuff, so I can't really remember if this was the case in prior books, but there is way more talk about the Cosmere than I was expecting.

I believe Sanderson has said that the final mistborn trilogy will be heavy into the cosmere.

I am enjoying this one a lot so far. I have 5 hours left out of 18 on the audibook.

I think that's kind of expected with it being a space age trilogy though
I've lost track of how many series he has left to do. I know the back 5 of stormlight and the mistborn trilogy. I think a dragonsteel one.

I think there is supposed to be a hoid book at some point


“The last chronological book of the Cosmere Sequence is the final Mistborn book,” Sanderson said. “So the way that the structure works right now [is]: Elantris, Mistborn Era One, Stormlight Archive first five, Mistborn Era Two [and Three], Elantris 2 and 3, Stormlight Archive 6-10, then the final Mistborn Era.

“Era four of Mistborn will be the last chronologically,” Sanderson continued. “We will have the flashbacks to Dragonsteel after Stormlight 10 but before Era four of Mistborn. If I manage to get that all done before I die, then there’s a decent change I will write other Cosmere books…probably during this timeframe. Unconnected or only tangentially related. But I do intend that to be the final book of the Cosmere sequence and I have no plans for anything chronologically after that.

In regards to my earlier spoiler/question, and I still have 5 hours left in the audio book

After meeting the other cosmere people I kind of think Moonlight might be Shallan, not Jasnah. Codenames feels like that was the name or a reference or something in one of the recent Stormlight books? Hard to say. Twinsoul kind of feels like the Warbreaker guy, but none of the powers ring a bell. My memory for details like this stuff is overall terrible though

Solid ending to era 2. How long is the time jump supposed to be to era 3? I feel like it might be shorter than I thought in my head

My impression is that she's an elantran based on the stamps and her transforming and writing all those sigils. I had the same thought you did initially but Shallan's identity issues seemed more like a mental illness than an actual power...her powers weren't dependent on which voice in her head was dominant.

I really enjoyed this book. I can't believe it's been 6 years since the last one so I had to watch some videos to brush up but I loved everything about this novel. I also have a feeling Era 3 won't be that big a time jump based on how things ended.

It would be the biggest tease on the planet to suggest Wax is a proper mistborn now and then not use that character again. We also have loose threads with the Bands of Mourning and potential war with the Malwithe. And finally that little conversation with Kaladin urging Sazed to start pushing them to develop faster instead of waiting for it to happen naturally, so I expect the next era will still be in Wax's life time, though with technology advancing at break-neck speed.
