The Kaladin Book Soundtrack based on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Call To Action

The Kaladin Book Soundtrack based on The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson – Call To Action 

Sometimes, when you work in entertainment, you take the gigs that will feed you. Sometimes, you take the gigs that inspire you. Sometimes, the gig pays off. Rarely, a gig can change your life. The Kaladin book soundtrack (inspired by The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson) saved mine. Literally. None of us at The […]

Cruising the Cosmere: Visit Magical Arelon!

Cruising the Cosmere: Visit Magical Arelon! 

Spoiler Warning: This article contains spoilers for Elantris. Please read with caution if you have yet to finish the book. I just read Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn: Secret History, and it got me thinking about scope. Epic fantasy is its own magnificent genre of course, but it tends to take place on a single world. It […]

Introducing: Cruising The Cosmere 

Show of hands: how many of you started reading Brandon Sanderson’s books with no idea of what the Cosmere would be? When I picked up Mistborn way back before his first Wheel of Time book came out, my entire goal was to get a sense of the writing style of this Sanderson guy who was […]

Chinese Mistborn Cover

Chinese Mistborn Cover 

We’ve featured work from Jian Guo before when we highlighted his incredible Chinese covers for Book of the New Sun and The Lord of The Rings. It seems China liked their dose of classic English-language fantasy and crave some more, this time something more modern in Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn. Yet again, Guo’s talents have been called […]

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson
4.5

Now, before you accuse me of gushing over the story in Part One, I gave Words of Radiance 9 (8.5 rounded up) for a reason. I did not like everything. The humour, for example, while funny, was sometimes counterproductive. It made some encounters seem a little silly, the humour forced, and character actions incomprehensible–and as […]
