Note: This deal is over. I would recommend starting with the Mistborn series if you want to get into Brandon Sanderson’s books. You can buy the entire trilogy by clicking here. You can also click here to get the first book only.
For those of you who don’t know, Shaylee and I are big fans of Brandon Sanderson. About two years ago a friend of Shaylee’s lent her a book called Mistborn. As she read it she began telling me how great it was. I still remember when she first tried to explain the premise to me. Apparently there are these people called allomancers…and they swallow different types of metals. Then they “burn” the metals in their stomach and gain special abilities based on the type of metal used…interesting. After hearing that I thought to myself, “Wow, that sounds really fun…for you.”
Eventually I gave in and started reading it. It took a while for me to get into it, but once I did, I quickly breeze through the entire trilogy. Brandon Sanderson has a great talent for building worlds and creating surprise twists in his books. I never had any interest in Fantasy books, until I read Mistborn. After that, I was totally hooked on Brandon Sanderson. I have since read almost all of his novellas well as some of his novellas and short stories.
Last week I came across a book bundle on Humble Bundle that contains over a dozen short stories, novellas, and other works by Brandon Sanderson. Click here to see the details of the bundle. Even if you don’t want to pay the full $15 you can get a great sampler for only $1. I highly recommend The Emperor’s Soul, and while they aren’t among his best novels, Warbreaker and Elantris are both very good reads. Keep in mind that the audiobooks are done by GraphicAudio and are Dramatized. They are a little different than traditional audio books, so I would recommend listening to the samples for those before deciding to buy.
I will warn you that some of Brandon’s writing can be a bit violent, however his books are very clean in terms of sexual content and language. Also, a some of these books contain spoilers for his novels. “The Hope of Elantris” contains spoilers for Elantris, and the “Mistborn Adventure Game” books contain spoilers for the Mistborn series.
I recommend this bundle to anyone who enjoys reading, but especially to those who have heard of Brandon Sanderson but have never had a chance to read any of his books. This offer ends on the morning of 4/26/2017.
