More About the Author

I'm Brandon Sanderson, and I write stories of the fantastic: fantasy, science fiction, and thrillers.

My newest book is Words of Radiance, written as a love letter of sorts to the epic fantasy genre. It continues the story of the Stormlight Archive that began in The Way of Kings, and it's the type of book I always dreamed epic fantasy could be.

In September 2013 I also released Steelheart, set in a near-future Chicago ruled by a ruthless villain with no heroes to oppose him.

Mistborn and The Way of Kings are among my most popular works, as are my concluding volumes to Robert Jordan's epic series The Wheel of Time. My novella The Emperor's Soul won a Hugo Award in 2013. That year also marked the release of my first young adult fantasy, The Rithmatist.

Sample chapters from all of my books are available at brandonsanderson.com/library -- and check out the rest of my site for chapter-by-chapter annotations, deleted scenes, and more.

Format: Hardcover
Having read Sanderson's continuation of the epic Wheel of Time series and the breathtakingly original work he has produced on his own (so far i've only read The Way of Kings and the Mistborn trilogy) I had really high expectations of Elantris, despite being aware that it was his debut novel and could be a step back.
However, I was a little apprehensive because I like my fantasy complex and engaging and I just wasn't sure that a stand alone novel would be able to deliver.
Well Elantris didn't disappoint. The plot is rich and original with enough mystery to keep the reader intrigued despite giving the perspective of only three characters. In fact, I felt that the choice to focus on the main three characters was a master stroke; it meant that you got to know the characters intimitely without the necessity of extra books.
Now I don't believe in giving spoilers but I was slightly disappointed with the twist at the end of the book because I felt it was slightly incoherent. I think this reflects Sanderson's relative immaturity in drawing together a plot at the time.
Overall, Elantris is original, engaging and has the rarest of qualities... it is 'unputdownable' and I would thoroughly recommend it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When it was announced that Robert Jordan's wife had chosen him to write the final volume of The Wheel of Time, Brandon Sanderson became something of a household name in the fantasy scene almost overnight. That's not to discredit the novels that Sanderson had written before this somewhat surprising piece of news, or the fledgling reputation that he'd built, but Sanderson would be the first to acknowledge the boost to his career that the Jordan gig gave him.

I'd read some of the samples of Sanderson's work on his livejournal, and have to say that - in terms of writing - they didn't do a lot for me. Nonetheless, Elantris - his first novel to be published - had a premise that appealed to me. When I saw a hardback copy in a bookshop at a reduced price (due to slight damage to the cover), I snapped it up.

The premise that intrigued me goes as follows: Elantris was a glowing beacon of civilisation, home to beings that were regarded as semi-divine by ordinary humans. Elantrians were highly skilled in the ways of magic, and were semi-immortal. Anyone could become an Elantrian - but only by chance. The transformation was called the Shaod, and it struck seemingly at random, changing the lucky person's life overnight.

When without warning the magic of Elantris failed, the Shaod turned from blessing to curse - it turned its victims into shadows of their former selves, imprisoning them in bodies that would not heal and were horrible to look upon. These unfortunate souls were cast into Elantris - once a city of beauty and wonder, now a decaying nightmare of insanity and despair.

The novel begins with Raoden, Prince of the kingdom of Arelon, waking one morning to find the Shaod has taken him.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Elantris is the first novel by American author Brandon Sanderson. Refreshingly, it is not the first book in a series, but a self-contained novel in itself (although there are a few loose ends left dangling for possible sequels).

The plot starts off sounding the same-old. The kingdoms of Teod and Arelon is in danger of being swallowed up by their expansionist neighbour, Fjordell, whose religions brooks no rivals. Cue a desperate battle in Arelon and its capital, Kae, as various nobles and merchants race to either ingratiate themselves with the Fjordell or find a way of resisting them.

The more original element of the story is that up until a decade ago, Arelon was protected by the Elantrians, god-like beings with total mastery of magic. Occasionally, humans would be unexpectedly transformed into Elantrians by an apparently random magical process. However, something went wrong. The Elantrians' magic failed and they were transformed from demigods into cursed wretches who are permanantly affected by pain. Every time they suffer an injury, from a stubbed toe to a cut to a broken neck, the pain stays with them permanantly. Unless burned or decapitated, they are also immortal, so a broken back or neck is simply a condemnation to agony rather than death. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the Elantrians are catatonic or totally insane. Their city, Elantris, stands alongside Kae and is now quarantined, with humans transformed into Elantrians thrown into the city and forgotten about.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book has enough complexity to keep it interesting, but not so much that it bogs down the pace of the story. The action keeps moving from scene to scene, move to counter move, and, a rarity in the genre, it wraps up satisfyingly in a single volume.

I was tipped off to Brandon Sanderson when Tor sent out Mistborn, which I also enjoyed. I'm pleased that this author recognizes his readers' desire to have the story completed in a timely manner (Mistborn Trilogy is all already published). Later I learned he was going to finish Robert Jordan's too-long series, and I can't wait to read those as well.
