Today, Brandon Sanderson‘s WORDS OF RADIANCE is published in paperback. Gollancz are publishing the novel, the second in Sanderson’s New York Times (#1) and Sunday Times (#2) bestselling Stormlight Archives series, in two parts. Here’s the synopsis…
Return to a planet swept by apocalyptic storms, a world tipping into war as aristocratic families move to control the shard blades and shard plates, ancient artifacts from a past civilisation that can win wars.
As the world tips into a war for control of the mythical artifacts of power made from Shard, characters are swept up into new dangers which will threaten their integrity and their lives.
Gollancz also published the first novel in the series, THE WAY OF KINGS. They also publish Sanderson’s critically-acclaimed and bestselling Mistborn series (four books so far, more to come), The Reckoners series (two novels and a novella so far), and the stand-alone novels ELANTRIS and WARBREAKER. We have some more news about the first Stormlight Archive novel coming up soon, so be sure to keep checking back.
