Brandon Sanderson könyvei a rukkolán


Brandon Sanderson - Ködszerzet
Ezer ​éve már, hogy hamueső hullik az égből, hogy egyetlen virág sem bontotta ki szirmait. Ezer éve már, hogy a szkák nyomorult rabszolgákként, örökös félelemben robotolnak. Ezer éve már, hogy az Uralkodó, a Végtelenség Szilánkja isteni legyőzhetetlenségben, általános rettegéstől övezve trónol tökéletes hatalma csúcsán. Ám mikor már a remény emléke is végképp elenyészni látszik, egy sebhelyekkel borított, összetört szívű félrabszolga ismét rátalál arra az Uralkodó legpokolibb tömlöcének mélyén. Kelsierben, a tolvajban elpattan valami, és felfedezi magában a ködszerzetek erejét, az allomancia varázslatos tehetségét. Majd született vezérként minden képességét a végső, legnagyobb terv szolgálatába állítja, magát az Uralkodót szemelve ki a lázadás célpontjaként. Fiatal kora ellenére Brandon Sanderson a modern fantasy világhírű, kiemelkedő tehetségű képviselője. A már első regényével, az Elantrisszal nagy sikert aratott szerző Ködszerzet-trilógiájában a következő merész, ám igen egyszerű kérdéssel feje tetejére állítja a fantasy egész zsánerét: mi történik akkor, ha a próféciákban megjövendölt hős elbukik a Sötét Úrral szemben?

Brandon Sanderson - Shadows ​for Silence in the Forests of Hell
Originally ​appearing in the Dangerous Women anthology and now available as a solo ebook, Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell is a chilling novella of the Cosmere, the universe shared by Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn series and the #1 New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive. When the familiar and seemingly safe turns lethal, therein danger lies. Amid a forest where the shades of the dead linger all around, every homesteader knows to follow the Simple Rules: "Don't kindle flame, don't shed the blood of another, don't run at night. These things draw shades." Silence Montane has broken all three rules on more than one occasion. And to protect her family from a murderous gang with high bounties on their heads, Silence will break every rule again, at the risk of becoming a shade herself.

Brandon Sanderson - Alcatraz ​Versus The Knights Of Crystallia
When ​Alcatraz and Grandpa Smedry make a pilgrimage to the Free Kingdom city of Crystallia, the Smedry home base, Alcatraz is shocked to see that he is, in fact, a legend. When he was a baby he was stolen by the Evil Librarians, and his mother, a Librarian herself, was behind the whole scheme. Now, with his estranged father, who is acting indeed strange, Bastille, who has been stripped of her armor, and Grandpa Smedry, who is, as always, late to everything (that's his Talent), Alcatraz tries to save a city under siege. From who? Why, the Librarians of course!

Brandon Sanderson - A ​törvény ötvözete
Brandon ​Sanderson, az ünnepelt Ködszerzet-trilógia után most ismét visszatér abba az epikus világba, amely megalapozta helyét a világ elsőszámú fantasy írói között. A Ködszerzetben megismert események óta eltelt háromszáz évben Scadrial átalakult. Soha nem látott magasságú tornyok törnek az ég felé, vasút- és csatornahálózat szeli át a tájat. Ám ez a világ még mindig a mágia otthona. Kelsier, Vin, Elend, Sazed, Kobold és a többiek már bekerültek a történelem – vagy a vallás – nagy alakjai közé, de az allo­mancia és ferukímia ősi mesterségeinek még a tudomány megújulása ellenére is van hely ebben az újjászületett világban. A városokon túl húzódó, gyéren lakott Végeken a mágia alapvető eszköz a rendet és igazságszolgáltatást fenntartó bátor férfiak és nők kezében. Közéjük való Waxillium Ladrian is, a ritka ikerszerzet, aki mívesként fémekre taszít, viszont ferukimistaként csökkenteni vagy növelni tudja a testsúlyát. A Végeken eltöltött húsz esztendő után Wax egy családi haláleset miatt kénytelen visszatérni a metropoliszba, Elendelbe. Fel kell vennie a nemesi ház fejének halálával megüresedett posztot, ami nagy feladatokat ró rá, és méltóságteljes viselkedést követel meg tőle. Legalábbis Wax így hiszi, amíg csak számos kaland közepette rá nem döbben, hogy a város előkelő kúriáiban és elegáns fasorai alatt még a puszta Végek banditáinál is sokkalta nagyobb veszedelem rejtőzik.

Brandon Sanderson - Firefight
From ​the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of Words of Radiance coauthor of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart. They told David it was impossible--that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.

Brandon Sanderson - El ​camino de los reyes
El ​camino de los reyes es el primer volumen de «El Archivo de las Tormentas», el resultado de más de una década de construcción y escritura de universos, convertido en una obra maestra de la fantasía contemporánea en diez volúmenes. Con ella, Brandon Sanderson se postula como el autor del género que más lectores está ganando en todo el mundo. Anhelo los días previos a la Última Desolación. Los días en que los Heraldos nos abandonaron y los Caballeros Radiantes se giraron en nuestra contra. Un tiempo en que aún había magia en el mundo y honor en el corazón de los hombres. El mundo fue nuestro, pero lo perdimos. Probablemente no hay nada más estimulante para las almas de los hombres que la victoria. ¿O tal vez fue la victoria una ilusión durante todo ese tiempo? ¿Comprendieron nuestros enemigos que cuanto más duramente luchaban, más resistíamos nosotros? Quizá vieron que el fuego y el martillo tan solo producían mejores espadas. Pero ignoraron el acero durante el tiempo suficiente para oxidarse. Hay cuatro personas a las que observamos. La primera es el médico, quien dejó de curar para convertirse en soldado durante la guerra más brutal de nuestro tiempo. La segunda es el asesino, un homicida que llora siempre que mata. La tercera es la mentirosa, una joven que viste un manto de erudita sobre un corazón de ladrona. Por último está el alto príncipe, un guerrero que mira al pasado mientras languidece su sed de guerra. El mundo puede cambiar. La potenciación y el uso de las esquirlas pueden aparecer de nuevo, la magia de los días pasados puede volver a ser nuestra. Esas cuatro personas son la clave.

Brandon Sanderson - Elantris ​(angol)
Elantris ​was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. And now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium motivated by dogged religious views. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, rediscover the lost magic and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

Brandon Sanderson - The ​Well of Ascension
The ​impossible has been accomplished. The Lord Ruler - the man who claimed to be god incarnate and brutally ruled the world for a thousand years - has been vanquished. But Kelsier, the hero who masterminded that triumph, is dead too, and now the awesome task of building a new world has been left to his young protege, Vin, the former street urchin who is now the most powerful Mistborn in the land, and to the idealistic young nobleman she loves. As Kelsier's protege and slayer of the Lord Ruler she is now venerated by a budding new religion, a distinction that makes her intensely uncomfortable. Even more worrying, the mists have begun behaving strangely since the Lord Ruler died, and seem to harbor a strange vaporous entity that haunts her. Stopping assassins may keep Vin's Mistborn skills sharp, but it's the least of her problems. Luthadel, the largest city of the former empire, doesn't run itself, and Vin and the other members of Kelsier's crew, who lead the revolution, must learn a whole new set of practical and political skills to help. It certainly won't get easier with three armies - one of them composed of ferocious giants - now vying to conquer the city, and no sign of the Lord Ruler's hidden cache of atium, the rarest and most powerful allomantic metal. As the siege of Luthadel tightens, an ancient legend seems to offer a glimmer of hope. But even if it really exists, no one knows where to find the Well of Ascension or what manner of power it bestows.

Brandon Sanderson - Infinity ​Blade - Redemption
From ​#1 bestselling author Brandon Sanderson and ChAIR entertainment, creators of the blockbuster Infinity Blade video game series, comes the second novel in the epic Infinity Blade saga.

Chalklings are two-dimensional drawings that can be infused with life by Rithmatists and it is the job of the Rithmatists to keep the Wild Chalkings at bay. The Rithmatist is about a 14-year-old kid named Joel who wants desperately to be a Rithmatist. But he wasn’t Chosen, so he doesn’t have the ability to bring chalklings or Rithmatic lines to life. All he can do is watch as The Rithmatist students at Armedius Academy learn the mystical art that he would give anything to practice. Then Rithmatist students start disappearing, kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving only trails of blood. Joel’s professor asks him to help investigate—putting Joel and his friend Melody on the trail of a discovery that could change Rithmatics—and their world—forever….

Brandon Sanderson - Skin ​Deep
Stephen ​Leeds, AKA “Legion,” is a man whose unique mental condition allows him to generate a multitude of personae: hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills. As the new story begins, Leeds and his “aspects” are hired by I3 (Innovative Information Incorporated) to recover a corpse stolen from the local morgue. But there’s a catch. The corpse is that of a pioneer in the field of experimental biotechnology, a man whose work concerned the use of the human body as a massive storage device. He may have embedded something in the cells of his now dead body. And that something might be dangerous… What follows is a visionary thriller about the potential uses of technology, the mysteries of the human personality, and the ancient human need to believe that death is not the end. _Legion: Skin Deep_ is speculative fiction at it most highly developed. It reaffirms Sanderson’s place as one of contemporary fiction’s most intelligent—and unpredictable—voices. Legion: Skin Deep _will feature a full-color dust jacket, and two full-page, full-color interior illustrations by Jon Foster._

Brandon Sanderson - Dawnshard
Taking ​place between Oathbringer and Rhythm of War, this tale (like Edgedancer before it) gives often-overshadowed characters their own chance to shine. When a ghost ship is discovered, its crew presumed dead after trying to reach the storm-shrouded island Akinah, Navani Kholin must send an expedition to make sure the island hasn't fallen into enemy hands. Knights Radiant who fly too near find their Stormlight suddenly drained, so the voyage must be by sea. Shipowner Rysn Ftori lost the use of her legs but gained the companionship of Chiri-Chiri, a Stormlight-ingesting winged larkin, a species once thought extinct. Now Rysn's pet is ill, and any hope for Chiri-Chiri's recovery can be found only at the ancestral home of the larkin: Akinah. With the help of Lopen, the formerly one-armed Windrunner, Rysn must accept Navani's quest and sail into the perilous storm from which no one has returned alive. If the crew cannot uncover the secrets of the hidden island city before the wrath of its ancient guardians falls upon them, the fate of Roshar and the entire Cosmere hangs in the balance.

Brandon Sanderson - Rik Hoskin - White ​Sand 2.
Following ​the loss of most of his colleagues in a violent ambush, Kenton has become Lord Mastrell of the few remaining Sand Masters, magicians who can manipulate sand to do their bidding. With the ruling council poised against him, the hot-headed Kenton must become a diplomat to have any hope of preventing the eradication of his people forever. However, there’s another complication: assassins are coming for him from all directions, and Kenton’s only true ally is Khriss, a visitor from the other side of the planet who has an agenda of her own to pursue. White Sand Volume 2 continues the New York Times bestselling series of graphic novels, bringing a crucial chapter of Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere to life exclusively in a visual format.

Brandon Sanderson - Lies ​of the Beholder
The ​shocking conclusion to Brandon Sanderson's Legion novella series, on its own for the first time. Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad. A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price. When Stephen gets an unexpected cry for help from the woman who taught him how to control his aspects—right when one of his aspects suddenly and violently disappears—it will send him on a case the likes of which he could never have imagined.

Robert Jordan - Brandon Sanderson - The ​Gathering Storm
The ​final volume of the Wheel of Time, A Memory of Light, was partially written by Robert Jordan before his untimely passing in 2007. Brandon Sanderson, New York Times bestselling author of the Mistborn books, was chosen by Jordan's editor - his wife, Harriet McDougal - to complete the final book. The scope and size of the volume was such that it could not be contained in a single book, and so _The Gathering Storm_ is the first of three novels that will cover the outline left by Robert Jordan, chronicling Tarmon Gai'don and Rand al'Thor's final confrontation with the Dark One. This short sequence will complete the struggle against the Shadow, bringing to a close a journey begun almost twenty years ago and marking the conclusion of the Wheel of Time, the preeminent fantasy epic of our era. The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time.

Brandon Sanderson - Mistborn ​- Secret History
_Mistborn: ​Secret History_ is a companion story to the original Mistborn trilogy. As such, it contains HUGE SPOILERS for the books _Mistborn (The Final Empire), The Well of Ascension,_ and _The Hero of Ages._ It also contains very minor spoilers for the book _The Bands of Mourning._ _Mistborn: Secret History_ builds upon the characterization, events, and worldbuilding of the original trilogy. Reading it without that background will be a confusing process at best. In short, this isn’t the place to start your journey into Mistborn. (Though if you have read the trilogy—but it has been a while—you should be just fine, so long as you remember the characters and the general plot of the books.) Saying anything more here risks revealing too much. Even knowledge of this story’s existence is, in a way, a spoiler. There’s always another secret.

Brandon Sanderson - Elantris
Elantris ​gyönyörű… volt. Az istenek városának, a hatalom, a ragyogás, a mágia lakhelyének nevezték. Aki ott járt, állítja, építőkövei is valamiféle belső fénnyel izzottak, s a város csodálatos és kiismerhetetlen varázslatok otthona volt. Éjjel ezüstös láng­oszlopként már messziről láthatóan világított. Ám bármennyire fényűző volt is Elant­ris, lakói túlszárnyalták: hajuk csillogóan fehér, bőrük már-már fémesen fénylő ezüst – úgy ragyogtak, akár a város maga. A legendák szerint halhatatlanok vagy szinte azok voltak: gyorsan gyógyultak, s óriási erővel, szellemi és testi fürgeséggel áldották meg őket. Kezük egyetlen intésével varázslatot idéztek, s Opé­lon minden részéből zarándokoltak az emberek Elant­ris­ba, hogy gyógyulást, élelmet vagy éppen bölcsességet kérjenek a helyiektől. Istenségek voltak. És bárki ilyenné válhatott. Saód­nak nevezték, átalakulásnak. Váratlanul és véletlenül következett be – általában éjjel, azokban a titokzatos órákban, amikor az élet lelassul és megpihen. Koldus, mesterember, nemes vagy harcos: bármelyiket elérhette. A saód­dal a szerencsés kiválasztott élete véget ért, majd újrakezdődött; az illető maga mögött hagyta korábbi, közönséges létét, és Elant­ris­ba költözött. Elant­ris­ba, ahol boldogan élhetett, bölcsen uralkodhatott, és egy örökkévalóságon át imádták. Az örökkévalóság tíz évvel ezelőtt ért véget. _Brandon Sanderson nagy sikerű első regényének jubileumi újrakiadását tartja kezében az olvasó – átdolgozva és kibővítve, korábban elvetett szemelvényekkel és egy ráadás novellával gazdagítva._

Robert Jordan - Brandon Sanderson - A ​Fény emlékezete I-II.
Merrilor ​mezején azért gyűltek egybe a nemzetek fejedelmei, hogy felsorakozzanak Rand al’Thor mögött, vagy éppenséggel azért, hogy megakadályozzák, amit tenni készül. Talán az őrület jele, talán az emberi faj utolsó reménysugara az, hogy Rand le akarja törni a Sötét Úr tömlöcének pecsétjeit. Egwene, az Amyrlin-trón az előbbit tartja valószínűbbnek. Végveszélybe került az egész emberiség. Valamennyiük sorsa Shayol Ghul­ban dől majd el.

Brandon Sanderson - Warbreaker
After ​bursting onto the fantasy scene with his acclaimed debut novel, "Elantris, " and following up with his blockbuster Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson proves again that he is today's leading master of what Tolkien called "secondary creation," the invention of whole worlds, complete with magics and myths all their own. "Warbreaker" is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago. Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as "breath" that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people. By using "breath" and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.

Brandon Sanderson - The ​Final Empire
Brandon ​Sanderson, fantasy's newest master tale spinner, author of the acclaimed debut "Elantris," dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the hero of prophecy fails? What kind of world results when the Dark Lord is in charge? The answer will be found in the Mistborn Trilogy, a saga of surprises and magical martial-arts action that begins in "Mistborn." For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the "Sliver of Infinity," reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler's most hellish prison. Kelsier "snapped" and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark. Kelsier recruited the underworld's elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Only then does he reveal his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot. But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel's plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. Like him, she's a half-Skaa orphan, but she's lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets, and gotten it. She will have to learn to trust, if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed. Readers of "Elantris" thought they'd discovered someone special in Brandon Sanderson. "Mistborn "proves they were right.

Anthony Davis and his partner Chaz are the only real people in a city of 20 million, sent there by court order to find out what happened in the real world 10 days ago so that hidden evidence can be brought to light and located in the real city today.

But the crimes the detectives are sent to investigate seem like drudgery—until they stumble upon the grisly results of a mass killing that the precinct headquarters orders them not to investigate. That’s one order they have to refuse. The hunt is on.

From ​the bestselling author of the Mistborn Trilogy and co-author of the final three books of Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series comes the tale of a heretic thief who is the only hope for the survival of an empire.

Brandon Sanderson - Calamity
From ​the bestselling author of the Mistborn series and Words of Radiance comes Calamity, the final book in the New York Times bestselling Reckoners series. What started in the instant #1 New York Times bestseller Steelheart and continued in the instant #1 New York Times bestseller Firefight now concludes in Calamity. When Calamity lit up the sky, the Epics were born. David’s fate has been tied to their villainy ever since that historic night. Steelheart killed his father. Firefight stole his heart. And now Regalia has turned his closest ally into a dangerous enemy. David knew Prof’s secret, and kept it even when Prof struggled to control the effects of his Epic powers. But facing Obliteration in Babilar was too much. Once the Reckoners’ leader, Prof has now embraced his Epic destiny. He’s disappeared into those murky shadows of menace Epics are infamous for the world over, and everyone knows there’s no turning back. . . . But everyone is wrong. Redemption is possible for Epics—Megan proved it. They’re not lost. Not completely. And David is just about crazy enough to face down the most powerful High Epic of all to get his friend back. Or die trying. Praise for the Reckoners series: “The suspense is relentless and the climax explosive.” —James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series “Another win for Sanderson . . . he’s simply a brilliant writer. Period.” —Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind [STAR] “Snappy dialogue, bizarre plot twists, high-intensity action, and a touch of mystery and romance . . . leaves [readers] panting for the sequel.” —Booklist, Starred “An absolute page-turner."”—Publishers Weekly “Compelling. . . . Sanderson uses plot twists that he teases enough for readers to pick up on to distract from the more dramatic reveals he has in store.” —The A.V. Club
