The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson

What if the whole world were a dead, blasted wasteland?

Mistborn

For a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler, the “Sliver of Infinity,” reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then, when hope was so long lost that not even its memory remained, a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa rediscovered it in the depths of the Lord Ruler’s most hellish prison. Kelsier “snapped” and found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. A brilliant thief and natural leader, he turned his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark.

Kelsier recruited the underworld’s elite, the smartest and most trustworthy allomancers, each of whom shares one of his many powers, and all of whom relish a high-stakes challenge. Then Kelsier reveals his ultimate dream, not just the greatest heist in history, but the downfall of the divine despot.

But even with the best criminal crew ever assembled, Kel’s plan looks more like the ultimate long shot, until luck brings a ragged girl named Vin into his life. Like him, she’s a half-Skaa orphan, but she’s lived a much harsher life. Vin has learned to expect betrayal from everyone she meets. She will have to learn trust if Kel is to help her master powers of which she never dreamed.

Brandon Sanderson, fantasy’s newest master tale-spinner and author of the acclaimed debut Elantris, dares to turn a genre on its head by asking a simple question: What if the prophesied hero failed to defeat the Dark Lord? There will be plenty of answers in the Misborn Trilogy, a story that begins the moment you pick up a copy. Never again will fantasy be the same

The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1) by Brandon Sanderson

Book one of The Stormlight Archive, The Way of Kings, by New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, begins an epic new saga.

In Roshar, stone and storms rule. Winds of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped both the ecology and human civilization. In the absence of soil, animals, trees, and grass all hunker down. In places where the terrain is suitable for settlement, cities are only erected.

The ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant have been extinct for centuries, but their Shardblades and Shardplates remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. For Shardblades, men will give up their kingdoms. They were the ones who fought and won the wars that mattered most to them.

The Shattered Plains, a devastated landscape, is currently the scene of one such conflict. There, Kaladin has been reduced to slavery because he exchanged his medical training for a spear in order to protect his younger brother. A war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight against one foe, he is struggling to save his men and understand the leaders who consider them disposable in a war that makes no sense.

One of those other armies is under the command of Brightlord Dalinar Kholin. The Way of Kings, an ancient text he’s studied with his brother, the late king, has piqued his interest. He has begun to question his sanity as he is haunted by memories of ancient times and the Knights Radiant.

Jasnah, Dalinar’s niece, is an eminent scholar and a notorious heretic, and Shallan, an aspiring scholar, is eager to learn from her. Shallan’s motivations aren’t entirely pure, despite her professed love of learning. As she plots a daring heist for Jasnah, her investigation uncovers information about the Knights Radiant and the real reason for the war.

The Way of Kings is just the beginning of the Stormlight Archive, a monumental work in progress that has been in the works for over a decade.

and bring back to men the shards they once held in their bodies.

The Knights Radiant must rise once more.
