The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together—and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past—even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

A GAME OF THRONES
A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE: BOOK ONE
 
Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. To the south, the king’s powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king’s new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Sweeping from a harsh land of cold to a summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, A Game of Thrones tells a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Here an enigmatic band of warriors bear swords of no human metal; a tribe of fierce wildlings carry men off into madness; a cruel young dragon prince barters his sister to win back his throne; a child is lost in the twilight between life and death; and a determined woman undertakes a treacherous journey to protect all she holds dear. Amid plots and counter-plots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, allies and enemies, the fate of the Starks hangs perilously in the balance, as each side endeavors to win that deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.

Unparalleled in scope and execution, A Game of Thrones is one of those rare reading experiences that catch you up from the opening pages, won’t let you go until the end, and leave you yearning for more.
 Book One of the Elf Wars Trilogy... 
TWO THOUSAND YEARS the Elf Wars have raged. How long can two nations go on avenging the fallen? Both the Elven kingdoms lay ravaged and destitute. Only the Manarian Codes of War have kept the two societies from the brink of total annihilation. 

General Ka-ling leads the Elves of Jui-Rae in their struggle against the widely feared Dark Elves of Jui-Sae. His adversary, General Sien, faces him on the last field of honor. Yet secret circles of assassins meddle in the northern affairs, leaving behind brutal murders in the deeps woods which threaten to usher in a new age of cold-blooded genocide.


In the south under the twisted warped trees of the Ashwood, a far blacker war rages. Sadora, Shadowlord over all Unseen, makes a brutal advance into Jui-Rae burning villages and slaughtering thousands of innocents. The fabled Fata'morgana, the legendary Elven assassins of old return, taking the faces of their enemies and throwing the battles into further bloody turmoil.

Secret allegiances are formed and the dirtiest of units are called up, from the scoundrels of the Unseen City of Kadosha, to the Horsearchers of Glorindel, from the fiendish Ogre King, to immoral human mercenaries from the west. This is a tale of blood and bitter endless war. It is a downward spiral of vengeance of generations upon generations tired of burying their sons. It is civilization teetering on its sharpest edge and the flames of unending anger that threaten to wipe Elves, both light and dark, off the face of Covent forever...
