Elantris

Tenth Anniversary Author's Definitive Edition

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 18, 2005 – Sanderson's outstanding fantasy debut, refreshingly complete unto itself and free of the usual genre clich s, offers something for everyone: mystery, magic, romance, political wrangling, religious conflict, fights for equality, sharp writing and wonderful, robust characters. The godlike inhabitants of Elantris, once the capital of the land of Arelon, have degenerated into powerless, tortured souls, unable to die, after the city's magic inexplicably broke 10 years earlier. When the same curse strikes Prince Raoden of Arelon and he's imprisoned in Elantris, he refuses to surrender to his grim fate and instead strives to create a society out of the fallen and to unlock the secret that will restore the city's glory. Meanwhile, Princess Sarene of Kae (Arelon's new capital), who was betrothed to Raoden sight unseen, believes her intended has died. Officially declared his widow, she must use her political savvy and wit to protect Kae from malevolent forces without and within the city, chiefly Hrathen, a leader of the creepy Shu-Dereth faith, who aims to either convert Kae or destroy it within three months. The intrigue and excitement grow steadily in this smoothly written, perfectly balanced narrative; by the end readers won't want to put it down. As the blurb from Orson Scott Card suggests, Sanderson is a writer to watch.

Customer Reviews

Wonderful fantasy!

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

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.

Captivating book

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.
