The wait is over: OATHBRINGER out this week in the UK!


Brandon Sanderson‘s highly-anticipated OATHBRINGER is out this week in the UK! The eBook is available now, and the hardcover edition will drop on Thursday. Published in the UK by Gollancz, it is the third novel in the author’s critically-acclaimed, best-selling Stormlight Archive series. Here’s the synopsis…

Humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe whose numbers are as great as their thirst for vengeance.

The Alethi armies commanded by Dalinar Kholin won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, and now its destruction sweeps the world and its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the true 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 their newly kindled anger 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 the 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 Dalinar’s blood-soaked past aside and stand together — and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past — even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not avert the end of civilization.

Gollancz has also published the first two novels in the series: THE WAY OF KINGS and WORDS OF RADIANCE. Gollancz has published almost all of Sanderson’s novels in the UK, including the modern classic Mistborn series, and the stand-alone ELANTRIS, among others.

Brandon Sanderson’s ALCATRAZ returns to audio…


The fifth instalment in Brandon Sanderson‘s Alcatraz series is available now in audio! Published by W.F. Howes, here’s the synopsis for 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, the seat of Evil Librarian power. Can Alcatraz figure out a way to save Bastille and defeat the Evil Librarians?

The first four novels in the series are available in a collected omnibus, published in the UK by Gollancz.

On his thirteenth birthday, Alcatraz — a foster child — gets a bag of sand in the mail which purports to be his ‘inheritance’ sent from his father and mother. The Librarians, of course, immediately steal the bag of sand from him.

This sparks a chain of events which leads Alcatraz to realize that his family is part of a group of freedom fighters who resist the Evil Librarians – the secret cult who actually rule the world. Alcatraz’s grandfather shows up and tows him off to infiltrate the downtown library to steal back the mystical bag of sand. The ensuing story involves talking dinosaurs, sentient romance novels, and a dungeon-like labyrinth hiding beneath the innocent-looking downtown library.

Brandon’s next novel is OATHBRINGER, the third novel in his best-selling Stormlight Archive series. It is due to be published by Gollancz in November.

UK Cover and Details for Brandon Sanderson’s OATHBRINGER!


Above is the recently-unveiled, striking cover for OATHBRINGER, the third novel in Brandon Sanderson‘s critically-acclaimed, best-selling Stormlight Archives epic fantasy series! Due to be published in the UK by Gollancz in November, here’s the synopsis…

BANDS OF MOURNING, bound in paper…


sanderson-m6-bandsofmourninguk

The paperback edition of Brandon Sanderson‘s BANDS OF MOURNING is out today in the UK. Published by Gollancz, here’s the synopsis…

The Mistborn trilogy has become a firm favourite with fantasy fans the world over. The imagination that Sanderson brought to the series and his skill at marshalling epic storylines and dramatic action, his ability to create vivid characters made him a natural choice to complete Robert Jordan’s epic wheel of time sequence. But with Mistborn, Sanderson has shown his bountiful talents in his own fiction. Now he returns to the series that made his name with a new story…

The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metalminds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands, as well as writings in a language that no one can read. Waxillium Ladrian is recruited to travel south to the city of New Seran to investigate. Along the way he discovers hints that point to the true goals of his uncle Edwarn and the shadowy organization known as The Set.

The new Mistborn books move the series into a richly imagined 19th century analogue world with elements of the wild west mixed with magic and science. It’s a wonderful concoction from a master storyteller.

Gollancz has published all six novels in the Mistborn series (so far): THE FINAL EMPIRE, THE WELL OF ASCENSION, THE HERO OF AGES, THE ALLOY OF LAW, SHADOWS OF SELF and THE BANDS OF MOURNING. Gollancz have also published a pair of stand-alone novels, the Reckoners series, the Stormlight Archive series, and a selection of Brandon’s novellas.

Sanderson’s Reckoners face off against CALAMITY tomorrow in the UK!


sanderson-r3-calamityuk

Tomorrow sees the release of the paperback edition of Brandon Sanderson‘s third Reckoners novel, CALAMITY! Published by Gollancz, here’s the synopsis…

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.

He found some of those answers in FIREFIGHT. Now, he has to decide what to do with them…

Calamity is about what you do to fill your heart once you have vengeance.

Here’s a selection of reviews the novel has enjoyed…

‘A whirl of raids, chases, rescues, and spectacularly destructive displays of both magic and high-tech gadgetry ensues, bringing David face to face with Calamity… Adeptly done.’Kirkus

‘Sanderson creates a well-balanced novel of character development, frightening revelations and dramatic fights to ensure the reader is hooked into the storyline and creates a satisfying conclusion… an excellent and tense conclusion to a remarkable fantasy series.’Starburst

CALAMITY represents another strong installment in the series… a really enjoyable series with good action, characters, worldbuilding and revelations. Even when juggling multiple series, Sanderson remains a master of the craft.’Fantasy Faction

‘Those who really love thoughtful, action-packed superhero stories will be delighted by Sanderson’s masterful take on the genre. It’s an odd, intriguing but superlative mashup of superhero and post-apocalypse storytelling.’SF Revu

Gollancz has also published the first two novels and novella in the series: STEELHEART, MITOSIS and FIREFIGHT.

All the clues suggest the killer is a rogue kandra — a secretive, almost mythical, figure who acts from the shadows — called Bleeder… and that the governor is her next target.

Sanderson-M1-FinalEmpireUK10

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the UK publication of Brandon Sanderson‘s THE FINAL EMPIRE, Gollancz is releasing a collectors edition hardcover! The cover is above, and here’s the synopsis…

A beautiful, collectible new hardback edition of one of the greatest fantasy novels of the past decade which revolves around a simple question: What if the Dark Lord won?

Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasy trilogy overturns the expectations of readers and then goes on to tell the epic story of evil overturned in a richly imagined world.

A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields.

But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy — the magic that lies in all metals.

Gollancz has published the six novels that currently comprise the Mistborn series: THE FINAL EMPIRE, THE WELL OF ASCENSION, THE HERO OF AGES, THE ALLOY OF LAW, SHADOWS OF SELF and THE BANDS OF MOURNING.
