Tenth Anniversary Author's Definitive Edition
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In 2005, Brandon Sanderson debuted with Elantris, an epic fantasy unlike any other then on the market. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Tor is reissuing Elantris in a special edition, a fresh chance to introduce it to the myriad readers who have since become Sanderson fans.
This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels.
Also included is an expanded version of the "Ars Arcanum" appendix, with more of the technical details of the book's magic that fans can never get enough of.
Elantris was truly a milestone both for Sanderson and for the genre of epic fantasy. It deserves this special treatment, something Tor has done only once before, with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Sanderson fans old and new will be excited to discover it.

Elantris is the best book I've read in a very, very long time. The characters are wonderfully created and believable, the plot is amazing and not in the least predictable. This is definitely worth reading!
Epic. This is a book to read. Best book I have read in a long time. I don't want to say it was as good as the lord of the rings or the star wars original movie trilogy but it evokes feelings on a similar level.
It's characters are complicated, the struggle between good and evil is real, and the world of Elantris is rich with history. Yet the book provides this without lengthy background. Instead you are thrown right into the middle of the intrigue of the royal courts, the adventure and magic of Elantris, and are authentically surprised (at least once) at turns of events.
I will read it again one day and recommend it to many of my friends.
I've never submitted a review before, but I felt this book deserved one. This book was an excellent read. I enjoyed the characters immensely and the magic system was very impressive. This was my first book I've read from this author and I liked it so much, I downloaded "The way of kings" and the "Mistborn" trilogy. I hear they are great books, so I hope I didn't waste my money. I've just started the "Way of Kings" (3rd chapter) and I feel it was money well spent. I love reading on my iPhone 4 and all these books make me want to get an iPad. Maybe soon. Keep up the good work Mr. Sanderson. I like losing myself in the worlds you have created. I highly recommend this book.
