Gollancz is continuing their release of collector hardcovers, today, with the release of a gorgeous new edition of THE WELL OF ASCENSION. The second novel in Brandon Sanderson‘s Mistborn series, here’s the synopsis…
The Dark Lord is dead, and now a new world can be built. The acclaimed epic commercial fantasy published for the first time in the UK.
The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead has been vanquished. But so too is Kelsier the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin; a one-time street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land.
Worryingly for her Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy. More worryingly still the mists have become unpredictable since the Lord Ruler died and a strage vaprous entity is stalking Vin.
As the siege of Luthadel intensifies the ancient legend of the Well of Ascension offers the only glimmer of hope. But no-one knows where it is or what it can do…
The first novel in the series, THE FINAL EMPIRE, was released as a collectors’ hardcover last September.
Gollancz has published all six of the Mistborn novels (to date) in the UK, as well as Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive and Reckoners series. Brandon’s next novel, OATHBRINGER, is due out in two weeks (November 16th).
