The new hardcover editions of OATHBRINGER are out today in the UK! Published by Gollancz, it’s the third volume in Brandon Sanderson‘s acclaimed and best-selling Stormlight Archive epic fantasy series. Here’s the synopsis…
In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.
Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the 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 the newly kindled anger of the parshmen 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 dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realises that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together?and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past?even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilisation.
Here are just a few of the great reviews the novel has received so far…
‘Fans of the Stormlight Archive series will enjoy this book, which brings back favorite characters and deepens a well-drawn fantasy world.’ — Kirkus
‘The much-anticipated third Stormlight Archive epic fantasy installment is classic Sanderson, with multiple story lines and unexpected twists and turns […] Sanderson successfully balances introducing new elements and satisfactorily resolving some threads, leaving fans to eagerly await the next in the series.’ — Publishers Weekly
‘Sanderson is the kind of author who has me hanging onto every ounce of information, he keeps me fascinated, and I’m always left craving for more.’ — Fantasy Hive
‘OATHBRINGER is everything I expected it to be. Not only does it make good on the promises of the first two volumes, it elevates the Stormlight Archive to new heights of epic magic, exceptional worldbuilding, and satisfying action. With each new novel, Sanderson proves himself to be the true heir to Robert Jordan’s throne. He’s writing big, meaty, contemplative epic fantasy, and showing no signs of slowing down.’ — B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog
‘Sanderson outdid himself once again. It is a wonderful, well-paced, emotional read with a poignant focus on the brokenness of people and how to overcome your own limits.’ — The Ranting Dragon
Gollancz has already published the first two volumes of the Stormlight Archive in new hardcover editions: THE WAY OF KINGS and WORDS OF RADIANCE. The fourth volume in the series — RHYTHM OF WAR — is out now in paperback, with the new hardcover editions forthcoming.
