Tomorrow, Gollancz are due to publish the latest book in Brandon Sanderson‘s best-selling, critically-acclaimed Mistborn fantasy series! SECRET HISTORY is a companion novella to the main series. Here’s the synopsis (including warnings for the unwary)…
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.
Gollancz has published all six of the novels in the series (to date): THE FINAL EMPIRE, THE WELL OF ASCENSION, THE HERO OF AGES, THE ALLOY OF LAW, SHADOWS OF SELF and THE BANDS OF MOURNING.
The first three novels in the Mistborn series are also now available in special edition hardcovers.
Gollancz has also published Brandon’s ongoing, epic Stormlight Archive series as well as a number of stand-alone novels and novellas.
Brandon’s latest novel, the critically-acclaimed SKYWARD, is also published by Gollancz and is out now!
