About This Club

For fans of Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere

  1. What's new in this club
  2. That's a tough one. I can see the benefits of a Mistborn but the Radiants have always been so awesome!
  3. I finished a full Cosmere re-read just there and then received White Sand vol 3 which I powered through. Was a great journey but I forget we are only scraping the beginning of the Cosmere.
  4. I personally would want to be an mistborn because metals exist in our world, meaning the power is much more available.
  5. Unknown until recently, when he said 'this almost definitely isn't the last you'll see of Taldain graphic novels' (or something along those lines) so yeah, taldain is gonna be graphic novels.
  6. He's not going to rewrite the graphic novel into a book but he has said he has plans for more stories set on that world but whether or not they will be in graphic novel form is unknown.
  7. sorry to disappoint, but no, he's not. He has it in graphic novel because he'll never have the time to write a full novel. And yeah, failed to do it again, but I'm leaving over the weekend, so... not doing it now either! Luckily you guys are the best and are facilitating your own discussion!
  8. Oh Via they're so good! And they fall more towards mistborn era 2/warbreaker sense of humour than the slightly more traditional fantasy of mistborn era 1/stormlight archive- so I know you'll enjoy them! I super enjoyed skyward actually. And the Reckoners trilogy starting with steelheart is good fun too!
  9. If you have already read Snapshot then Legion is a similar detective-vibe story. Rithmatist is my personal favourite about a magic school whose magic system is drawing lines with various degrees of actions.
  10. I'd say they arent as intricate and do fall short as they don't have much lore or expansion but as standalone novels, you could read worse but they are enjoyable for a quick, easy read
  11. I find myself a little bit reluctant to read non-cosmere because I'm thinking 'surely this can't be as good as cosmere'. Is it? That being said I've read Snapshot and really really enjoyed that.
  12. I would give Skyward a read. It's an easy read and the next one is out shortly! It can be quite bulky though whereas his other books are much shorter
  13. I haven't read any of his non-cosmere books, but I do own Skyward.
  14. Hey @Basel Gill, I've found Sanderson's non-Cosmere work as engaging as his Cosmere work. Snapshot is a fun novella that expands upon the imagination of using time-devices for police work and the Legion collection has many twists and turns as a standard Sanderson novel. Skyward is pretty great, it's a refreshing take on science fiction for Sanderson and I'll be looking to read it before Starsight comes out in the next few months. The Rithmatist was a damn good read, too. I only found out after that a sequel was planned and not yet in the works so was kinda bummed about that. I have yet to read Reckoners myself but I think after watch Amazon's The Boys, it might pale in comparison.
  15. I'm just wondering as to what people's experiences have been here with Sanderson's non-Cosmere work. So far all I've read have been the Reckoners, the Rithmatist, and I picked up the minibook containing the short stories Defending Elysium and Firstborn at Jordancon in 2013. Skyward is sitting on my Kindle waiting to be read, and just today I bought the ebook box set of the full Alcatraz series. So far I've liked everything I read, but my favorite has been The Rithmatist. I really enjoyed the magic system and want to see more of the alternate world he set up. What about everyone else?
  16. Currently Sanderson is divided over who the flashback character for book 4 is going to be
  17. There aren't any White Sand short stories just the graphic novel which is being published in three volumes.
  18. the only thing I'll say is it's a Singer (the Parshendi for those who don't recognize the name) book, and will show us a lot about them
  19. All I've got to read is the White Sands graphic novels I think. Graphic novels are not a good medium for me personally but I think Sanderson is planning on writing the books at some point?
  20. I have to say, agree to disagree here guys, I definitely prefer the more traditional fantasy type books Sanderson does over the more humourous ones. That being said, I still love the other ones, I am actually currently rereading Alloy of Law and having an absolute blast! Really? I'm trying to keep away from Stormlight 4 spoilers. I know the flashback sequence protagonist/s and I keep up to date with the writing speed but other than that I want to know as little as possible to get the full effect!
  21. I found the first Mistborn book in a charity shop back in 2009 I think? Just picked it up by complete chance!
  22. I thought there were other White Sands short stories?
  23. All current Cosmere short stories are in Arcanum Unbounded
  24. hope everythings ok! I haven't read anything White Sand / Sixth of the Dusk related, but have read all the others and their short stories. I think.
