Unformatted text preview: Praise for The Well of Ascension "Sanderson's hallmark is to take traditional high-fantasy tropes and turn them upside down, and he doesn't disappoint here. Vin's a beautifully realized protagonist whose struggles are wonderfully written and, as always, the world-building is unusual and compelling." — Romantic Times BOOKreviews "This entertaining read will especially please those who always wanted to know what happened after the good guys won." — Publishers Weekly "Vin's struggles with love and power inject the human element into Sanderson's engaging epic." — Booklist Praise for Mistborn " Mistborn utilizes a well thought-out system of magic. It also has a great cast of believable characters, a plausible world, an intriguing political system, and a very satisfying ending. Highly recommended to anyone hungry for a good read." —Robin Hobb "Brandon Sanderson made a sensational debut with Elantris as another in the recent crop of fantasy writers who use familiar epic forms to produce far-from-generic results. . . . Mistborn examines the makings of hero and villain, legend and myth, as seemingly different stages of what may be the same process. . . . [It's an] enjoyable, adventurous read. . .[and] along the way to the grand finale, anyone who cares to can learn a great deal about the underside of power." —Faren Miller, Locus Praise for Brandon Sanderson "Brandon Sanderson is the real thing—an exciting story-teller with a unique and powerful vision." —David Farland "It's rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works, how communities form, and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise." —Orson Scott Card THE WELL OF ASCENSION BOOK TWO OF MISTBORN BRANDON SANDERSON A TOM DOHERTY ASSOCIATES BOOK NEW YORK This is a work of fiction.
