Multiply that excitement a hundred fold when I heard directly from the author about his future plans and projects. A couple of days back, this now favorite author has unleashed to the world not only one, not two, not three, but a gazillion projects that he has been working on. He such a prolific writers, that could shame both Patrick Rothfuss and George R. R. Martin for letting their fans wait for years for their next book.
If you are as excited as I am with Brandon Sanderson, then git a full load of these gems that we will be expecting from him.
The one book that I mentioned above, to be released next year. As mentioned also, this is the second book in The Reckoners series, featuring David, who killed the High Epic Steelheart in the previous book. Don't forget the next book in the series, called Calamity, which the auhor has already started working with.
Legion: Skin Deep
Another sequel that fans have been waiting for... This limited release, courtesy of Subterranean Press, brings back Stephen Leeds aka Legion. Legion has a mental capacity to create aspects ("hallucinatory entities with a wide variety of personal characteristics and a vast array of highly specialized skills"). It is this ability that makes the story very interesting read.
After about 6 six years, Brandon Sanderson returns to this sarcastic, funny and revealing stories that you would almost believe it is he that speaks directly to his readers.
I am also awaiting for Shadows of Self in the second cycle of the Mistborn series. And to hear that I will not be only expecting one book if this series, but at least two more gives me a boost to finish the original trilogy already.
After Shadows of Self, which will be released in October 2015, Bands of Mourning will be released on January 2016 to be followed by The Lost Metal.
Brandon Sanderson has still more tucked under his sleeves. First is the sequel to his debut novel, Elantris. Nightblood will also be coming as a sequel to Warbreaker. Dark One is a new series that will feature the villain as the main character. We've read so much about a hero vanquishing a Dark Lord, so it's maybe high time we read something in the perspective of this misunderstood characters. Some of his other upcoming projects include Silence Divine, Legion 3, Adamant, White Sand graphic Novels, and Dragonsteel. You can read more about them in here.
