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 - Mary Robinette Kowal - The ​Original
In ​the near future, humans choose life—for a price. Injectable nanite technology is the lifeblood that flows through every individual wishing to experience the world through the lens of their own theme. While death from mortal wounds is still possible, life is made easier in a socially liberated society where automation and income equality allow passion pursuits to flourish over traditional work. Renewal stations are provided to every law-abiding citizen for weekly check-ins, which issue life-sustaining repairs in exchange for personal privacy. But what becomes of those who check out, of those who dare to resist immortality and risk being edited under the gaze of an identity-extracting government surveillance system? When Holly Winseed wakes up in a hospital room, her first thoughts are of her husband Jonathan. But he isn’t there. And her near-term memory seems… disjointed. A team of government agents wastes no time with pleasantries telling Holly that she is a Provisional Replica, created in the aftermath of her Original’s conviction for murdering their husband Jonathan. Now she has one week to hunt down and kill her Original. If she succeeds, she’ll assume her Original’s life. If she fails, her nanites deplete and she will die. Holly’s progress is monitored by an assigned contact that feeds her information as she confronts the blank, robotic world around her, discovering that others view life through the theme of their own choosing. With her newly implanted combat and deduction skills, Holly fends off both attacks by terrorists and doubts about her own trustworthiness as clues lead her to her Original – and to the truth about Jonathan. In the end, one body remains and one walks away. Although questions persist, one thing is certain: Life will never be the same.

Brandon Sanderson - Collin Kelly - Jackson Lanzing - Dark ​One
Paul ​Tanasin is a young man haunted by visions of a dark and fantastic world―visions he initially believes are hallucinations. But when he discovers they are prophecies from Mirandus, a world in which he’s destined to become a fearsome destroyer, he’ll have to embrace the fear, rise up as the Dark One, and shatter everything. _Dark One_ examines the dual roles we often take on in life—the ability to be a savior as well as a destroyer.

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 - 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 - Firstborn
Now ​Tor.com is pleased to present the original novelette "Firstborn," a tale of war and sibling rivalry that happens to also be Brandon Sanderson's first published work of out-and-out science fiction. Illustrated by Hugo-winning artist Donato Giancola, "Firstborn" is SF like it used to be

Brandon Sanderson - The ​Dark Talent
Alcatraz ​Smedry has successfully defeated the army of Evil Librarians and saved the kingdom of Mokia. Too bad he managed to break the Smedry Talents in the process. Even worse, his father is trying to enact a scheme that could ruin the world, and his friend, Bastille, is in a coma. To revive her, Alcatraz must infiltrate the Highbrary – known as The Library of Congress to Hushlanders – the seat of Evil Librarian power. Without his Talent to draw upon, can Alcatraz figure out a way to save Bastille and defeat the Evil Librarians once and for all?

Brandon Sanderson - Legion ​/ The Emperor's Soul
The ​internationally bestselling author of the Mistborn and Stormlight Archive series presents two very different novellas that nevertheless showcase his remarkable gift for gripping narrative, world-building and empathetic characters. Available for the first time in one volume, a publishing event for all his many fans. LEGION 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 specialised skills. As the story begins, Leeds and his 'aspects' are drawn into the search for the missing Balubal Razon, inventor of a camera whose astonishing properties could alter our understanding of human history and change the very structure of society. The action ranges from the familiar environs of America to the ancient, divided city of Jerusalem. Along the way, Sanderson touches on a formidable assortment of complex questions: the nature of time, the mysteries of the human mind, the potential uses of technology, and the volatile connection between politics and faith. Resonant, intelligent, and thoroughly absorbing, LEGION is a provocative entertainment from a writer of great originality and seemingly limitless gifts. THE EMPEROR'S SOUL When Shai is caught replacing the Moon Scepter with her nearly flawless forgery, she must bargain for her life. An assassin has left the Emperor Ashravan without consciousness, a circumstance concealed only by the death of his wife. If the emperor does not emerge after his 100-day mourning period, the rule of the Heritage Faction will be forfeit and the empire will fall into chaos. Shai is given an impossible task: to create - to Forge - a new soul for the emperor in less than 100 days. But her soul-Forgery is considered an abomination by her captors. She is confined to a tiny, dirty chamber, guarded by a man who hates her, spied upon by politicians, and trapped behind a door sealed in her own blood. Shai's only possible ally is the emperor's most loyal councillor, Gaotona, who struggles to understand her true talent. Time is running out for Shai. Forging, while deducing the motivations of her captors, she needs a perfect plan to escape...

Brandon Sanderson - The ​Way of Kings
Roshar ​is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soiless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them. One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.

Brandon Sanderson - Jäger ​der Macht
Brandon ​Sandersons einzigartiges Epos geht weiter Das Reich Scadrial hat sich in den letzten dreihundert Jahren gravierend verändert: Die Nebelgeborenen haben ihre Schwerter gegen Schusswaffen eingetauscht, und die Helden von einst sind längst zur Legende geworden. In dieser Zeit kommt Waxillium Ladrian nach zwanzig Jahren in der Einöde zurück in die Hauptstadt Elendel, um seinen Pflichten als Oberhaupt einer adeligen Familie nachzukommen. Doch in der Stadt lauern Gefahren, mit denen er nicht gerechnet hatte …

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!

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 - Oathbringer
Dalinar ​Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified. Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together―and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past―even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

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. This latest take delves deeper into the fantastical world of Infinity Blade, a world of mystery and intrigue where magic and technology are indistinguishable, and even life and death are not as they seem.

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.

Robert Jordan - Brandon Sanderson - Gyülekező ​fellegek I-II.
A ​Tarmon Gai’don közeleg. És az emberiség nem áll készen. Rand al’Thor, az Újjászületett Sárkány igyekszik még az Utolsó Csata előtt egyesíteni a királyságok és szövetségek töredezett sorát. Míg ő a seanchan erők északra nyomulását akarja megakadályozni, szövetségesei kétségbeesetten próbálják visszaszorítani a sötétséget, amely mintha magának az Újjászületett Sárkánynak a szívében vert volna tanyát. Egwene al’Vere, a lázadó aes sedaiok amyrlinje a Fehér Torony foglya, kiszolgáltatva zsarnoki ellenfele kényének-kedvének. Ahogy telnek a napok, és közeleg az általa Álmodott seanchan támadás, a lány próbálja összekovácsolni az aes sedaiok széthúzó frakcióit, egyúttal küzd a mindent eluraló bizonytalanság és elkeseredettség ellen. Harca megmutatja, mennyit érnek az aes sedaiok, és küzdelme dönti el a Fehér Torony jövőjét – márpedig azon múlik az egész világ sorsa. Az Idő Kereke forog, jönnek-mennek a korok. Múlt, jövendő és jelen egyaránt a sötétbe hullhat… _Korai, 2007-es halála előtt Robert Jordan már megírta nagy könyvciklusa befejező kötetének egy részét. Szerkesztője (és felesége) Harriet McDougal Brandon Sandersont, a nagy sikerű Ködszerzet-trilógia szerzőjét kérte fel a mű befejezésére. A regény eseményei azonban terjedelmileg is, szerkezetileg is túl nagynak bizonyultak egyetlen kötetre, így a Tor kiadó büszkén vállalta, hogy a Gyülekező fellegek csak az első része legyen az Árnyék ellen vívott harcot elmesélő utolsó trilógiának, amely lezárja a húsz éve indult történetet, és megmutatja, merre fordul az Idő Kereke, korunk egyik legjelentősebb fantasztikus eposza._

Brandon Sanderson - Legion: ​The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds
Stephen ​Leeds is schizophrenic (...probably...) and he's in demand. But not for his own skills - his clients want to tap into the imaginary experts that populate his mind - and it's getting a bit crowded in there. One of his many 'aspects' is a trained soldier, another a psychological expert, a third is a librarian, and all of them want to help him solve problems, making him an exceptionally versatile intelligence agent. If you need a stolen corpse retrieved or a missing inventor found, Stephen Leeds is the man - or rather, the team - for the job. But managing a team is a challenge in itself, all the more so when some of the team feel they know better than Stephen himself... The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds is an omnibus edition of the three amazing Legion novellas: Legion, Legion: Skin Deep and Legion: Lies of the Beholder.

Brandon Sanderson - Sufletul ​împăratului
În ​urma unui atentat, împăratul Ashravan a rămas doar un trup fără suflet, iar acest lucru a fost ascuns sub pretextul durerii provocate de moartea soţiei sale. Dacă nu-şi va reveni după cele o sută de zile de doliu, imperiul va fi cuprins de haos. Aşa că prizoniera Shai primeşte sarcina aproape imposibilă de a crea prin Falsificare un nou suflet pentru împărat, scopul ei secret fiind însă acela de a-şi recăpăta libertatea.

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 - 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 - The ​Rithmatist
The ​Rithmatist is an epic fantasy set in an alternate version of our world—a world in which life in the American Isles is threatened by the attacks of mysterious creatures known as Wild Chalklings. 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 - 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.

Háromszáz ​évvel a Ködszerzet-trilógia után Scadrial a modern kor küszöbén áll – vasútvonalak egészítik ki a csatornákat, elektromos világítás ad fényt az utcákon és a vagyonosok otthonaiban, az első acélvázas felhőkarcolók pedig egymással versenyezve törnek az ég felé.

Robert Jordan - Brandon Sanderson - A ​Memory of Light

A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in.

Brandon Sanderson - The ​Bands of Mourning
The ​#1 New York Times bestselling author returns to the world of Mistborn with the follow-up to Shadows of Self With The Alloy of Law and Shadows of Self, Brandon Sanderson surprised readers with a New York Times bestselling spinoff of his Mistborn books, set after the action of the trilogy, in a period corresponding to late 19th-century America.

Brandon Sanderson - Tündöklő ​szavak I–II.
Brandon ​Sanderson, a New York Times bestsellerszerzőjének könyve, a Tündöklő szavak folytatja azt a lenyűgöző és epikus sorozatot, amely A királyok útjával kezdődött. Ellenségei minden igyekezete ellenére Kaladin nem halt kínhalált, hanem ő lett a királyi testőrség parancsnoka – és alacsony rangú „sötétszeműt” még sosem részesítettek ilyen kegyben. Így most neki kell megvédenie a királyt és Dalinart a rájuk leselkedő veszélyektől, míg igyekszik kiismerni újdonsült hatalmát, melynek köze van becsületszprenjéhez, Sylhez. A Fehér Gyilkos, Szeth újra munkához látott: megdöbbentő hatalma segítségével már Roshar számos uralkodójával végzett. Egyik legfontosabb célpontja Dalinar főherceg, akit sokan az alethi trón mögött álló valódi hatalomnak tartanak. A háborúban betöltött vezető szerepe épp elég indíték lenne egy merényletre, a Fehér Gyilkos gazdája azonban ennél sokkal erősebb motivációval bír. A zseniális, ám nyughatatlan Shallan rettenetes terhet hordoz a vállán: valahogy meg kell akadályoznia a legendás semmihozók visszatérését, valamint az emberiséget megsemmisítő Pusztítás eljövetelét. A megoldást keresve a Széthasadt Síkságra indul, ám már az odavezető út is sokkal nehezebbnek bizonyul, mint amire valaha is számított. Eközben a Széthasadt Síkság szívében a fogyatkozó számú parshendik fontos döntésre készülnek. A tábornokuk, Eshonai meggyőzi őket, hogy tegyenek kockára mindent, és hívják segítségül azokat a természeti erőket, amelyek elől egykor elmenekültek. Döntésük kihat a parshendikre és az emberekre, sőt, egész Rosharra – a következményei pedig éppolyan veszélyesek, mint amilyen kiszámíthatatlanok…

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.
