Summary:

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 the first book appearance of the short story 'The Hope of Elantris,' revealing interesting action referred to late in the novel, and 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.

    Sanderson is quickly becoming my favorite author. When you think the story is moving slowly and question why he's taking you down a certain path all of a sudden you realize he's setting you up for something awesome.

    I realy realy tried to listen to this book... but couldn't. I know the narrator tried but I just couldnt go on. I never realized how important the narrator could be until this book. I was hoping to find the book with different narrator.

    A fantastic book! I really enjoyed it. In a world of despair and pain one man refuses to let go of hope; probably what I loved most about it. Had multiple great characters too. I thought the narrator was great too. This book rivaled some of my all time favorite book series; like the Drizzt series by R.A Salvatore and The Sword of Truth series. This is definitely the best stand alone book I’ve ever read.

  • Nick Caron

    Amazing. Brandon Sandersons first book in the Cosmere. I can't recommend this author enough

  • Kori B.

    Excellent book. Good job on differentiating the voices.

  • Kou V.

    Brandon Sanderson created an intriguing setting and, as always, a refreshingly unique magic system in this book. The intro beautifully immerse the reader into this creation, the middle packed an intense drama that leads you from one chapter to the next, but the ending is why I withheld stars from the rating. The end delivery felt rushed and anticlimactic. There was a mystery to be solve throughout the story, but when the shrouds cleared and answer revealed, you are left with a sense of "that's it?" Moving away from the story-line, there was minimal character development. Almost all major characters remained the same throughout the book. Negatives aside, this book is still a good read/listen. It's just not of the same tier as Brandon Sanderson's other masterpiece.

  • Sabra Z

    Brandon Sanderson crafts another incredibly original tale with intriguing characters and a fascinating background and environs, and the narrator does an excellent job. Every character's voice is readily identifiable and consistent.

  • Stephen F

    Brandon Sanderson did an excellent job finishing Jordon's Wheel of Time. I was extremely excited to read his works outside of the Wheel of Time. Mr. Sanderson developed an excellent beginning and middle story with Elantris, but he petered out at the end. I felt like he gave up and just wanted to end the story as quickly as possible to get it published and move on. Yes, it might have taken more time to write and I think it could have even moved into additional books; but he opted for a fast unimaginative ending. It was very anti climatic. I will read more from Mr. Sanderson. He is an awesome talent and I look forward to seeing what world he can invent next.
