Brandon Sanderson’s MISTBORN: A SECRET HISTORY Out Now in the UK


Gollancz has published a new eBook novella by Brandon SandersonMISTBORN: A SECRET HISTORY is, as the name suggests, a companion novella set in the author’s best-selling and fan-favourite Mistborn series. Here’s the synopsis…

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.

The publisher’s website does offer a warning, though: ‘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.’

The novella will also appear in print in Brandon’s upcoming ARCANUM UNBOUND anthology, due to be published in the UK by Gollancz on November 10th, 2016. We’ll share full details and the cover for the anthology as soon as we have it. Although, an early (possibly draft) audiobook cover image is visible on Gollancz’s website:


As well as many other titles, Gollancz has also published the six novels in Bradon’s Mistborn series, in the UK: THE FINAL EMPIRE, THE WELL OF ASCENSION, THE HERO OF AGES, THE ALLOY OF LAW, SHADOWS OF SELF, and THE BANDS OF MOURNING.
