New Edition of Sanderson’s THE RITHMATIST Out Tomorrow in UK


Tomorrow, Tor Books publishes a new edition of Brandon Sanderson‘s THE RITHAMTIST. The first in a YA series, it was previously published in the UK by Gollancz. Here’s the synopsis…

This is a fast-paced adventure for readers of all ages by bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, master of fantasy fiction. Here, in a school for the magically gifted, your talent could cost you your life…

Joel is fascinated by the magic of Rithmatics, but few have the gift and he is not one of them. Undaunted, he persuades Professor Fitch to teach him magical theory. Joel can’t infuse his protective lines and circles with power, or bring his chalk-drawn creatures to life, but he’s quick to master the underlying geometric principles. His unique skills will soon face an extraordinary test when top Rithmatist students are kidnapped from his Academy.

Since he’s not a magic user, Joel appears to be safe – but he’s desperate to investigate and prove himself. Then people start dying. However, can Joel really stop a killer alone? As even more students disappear, he realizes he’ll need the help of Rithmatist apprentice Melody. Together, they must race to find clues before the killer notices them – and takes them out too.

Brandon Sanderson is the New York Times and Sunday Times bestselling author of the Mistborn series, Stormlight Archive series, The Reckoners super-hero series, and the final three Wheel of Time novels, among other fan favourites.
