Of the son of a High Duke of the interstellar Empire, much glory is expected. And expected. And still expected, despite endless proof that young Dennison Crestmar has no talent whatsoever for war. But the life Dennison is forced to live will have its surprising lessons to impart…

Brandon Sanderson's novels include Elantris, the Mistborn series (Mistborn, The Well of Ascension, and The Hero of Ages), Warbreaker, and the several volumes of the Stormlight Archive beginning with 2010's The Way of Kings. Following the death of Robert Jordan in 2007, Jordan's wife and editor Harriet McDougal recruited Sanderson to finish Jordan's multi-volume fantasy series The Wheel of Time from Jordan's extensive drafts and notes. Published in 2009, The Gathering Storm, by Jordan and Sanderson, is the first of the three volumes that will conclude Jordan's epic.

Customer Reviews

Good short story

For $1 this was a great, though short read. I am a Sanderson fan so l am predisposed to like his work before I read it. Even so this short story lives up to my high expectations. You can also read a great short story of Brandon's for free at his website.

Good story

Good story, quick read worth $1

Good Military Short Story

I thought it was an entertaining, quick read. I went into it with high expectations after reading Elantris and Mistborn, and was not disappointed. A good way to spend an afternoon.
