Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection

Cosmere

Brandon Sanderson

Welcome to New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller Brandon Sanderson's first collection of short fiction.

These wonderful works, most of which were originally published individually, have been collected for the first time and convey the true expanse of the Cosmere. Telling the exciting tales of adventure Sanderson fans have come to expect, Arcanum Unbounded includes the Hugo Award-winning novella The Emperor's Soul, an excerpt from the graphic novel White Sand, and the never-before-published Stormlight Archive novella Edgedancer.

This superb collection also includes descriptions of the various Cosmere systems "written" by Khriss (the fictional character who writes the Ars Arcanum appendices at the end of Cosmere novels), essays by the author, and maps and illustrations -- all of which offer insight into the numerous worlds in which the stories are set.

As a student of medieval history, Gil Patterson is a woman familiar with dark stories. She knows well the Crusades, the Black Death, and the other horrors of the Middle Ages, but it is another kind of atrocity that has begun to haunt her dreams. She sees forces of evil assaulting a beleaguered kingdom, whose kind people are on the brink of annihilation, and awakes each morning in a cold sweat.

Gil dismisses the dreams until a wizard appears in her apartment. He has crossed into her dimension, passing through the fraying fabric of the universe, to ask her help. For mankind to survive he must protect an infant prince, whom he plans to hide in Gil's world. The student of history is about to get much closer to evil than she ever imagined.

To defeat the savage horror, they must gain help from the Hidden City of Quo, to which all other wizards had been summoned. But Ingold could not pierce the walls of illusion that separated Quo from the world. With his student, Rudy Solis, the old wizard set out to cross 2,000 miles of dangerous desert to the City of Wizards. What he might find there he could not know - and dared not guess!
