Book of Nails[1] (formerly Boatload of Mummies) is the working title of a Mistborn novel[2] starring Nicki Savage[3] and written by Isaac Stewart.[4][5] It will be organized similarly to Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania, although her "sensationalized" version of the story will only be in the epigraphs, with the actual events being recounted in the book.[6]

It has been suggested in the past that the novel might include an actress playing the role of Vin during a performance[7] and possibly Nazh in an antagonistic role.[4] As of September 2022, the first draft of the novel is complete.[8] The first draft is 118,000 words.[9]


An adventurous woman with erratic magical powers travels with an expedition to an island to find a legendary book with the power to raise an undead army.
