Nightblood is the working title for the sequel to Warbreaker. It is currently on hold, and probably the cosmere book most in jeopardy of not being written. At one point, Brandon was planning on publicly releasing drafts as he wrote, as he did with Warbreaker, though it is unclear if that is still the case. It will not feature all the characters from Warbreaker; the original plan was to center the story on Vasher , Vivenna , Nightblood and further develop their characters. The book would focus heavily on story of the Five Scholars ,   including how Vasher became cosmere aware and travelled to Roshar,  as well as his history with Denth.

My name is Brandon Sanderson. It was also picked by Barnes and Noble editors as the best fantasy or science fiction book of the year. Book three is out in October of this year. You can find sample chapters of these books at the end of this file. If you like Warbreaker, consider buying those! It should be out sometime in the fall of My first inclination was to grab one of my old, unpublished books and offer it. And yet, one of my main reasons for releasing said e-book would be for publicity reasons.
That made me want to offer something new. Something that showed off the very best of my abilities. Why offer an inferior product as your free sample? This is not an old work. In fact, this is my newest work.
It has been purchased by Tor who gave me permission to try this experiment and will be published in hardcover in , with a paperback release to follow the next year. I like to have a lot of contact with my fans, and as I contemplated releasing a new book rather than an old one on my website, I had a chance to do something rarely seen.
They could see the evolution of the book, maybe even offer feedback on early drafts, allowing them to have a much closer connection to me as a writer and this book in specific.
I, personally, feel very differently about art and the public than certain record executives appear to feel. They can always get books for free via the library anyway. The potential gains far outweigh the potential losses. Though this is the fourth draft of the book, my novels usually see somewhere near eight drafts before they go to press. This is still a work in progress. What if readers pick this up, read through it, and judge me flawed as a writer because their only experience with me comes from an unpolished work?
This one really bothers my agent. Still, I think the opportunity that this affords my readers—particularly the aspiring writers among them—was too great to ignore.
It is done, and I intend to stick to my original plan. I will post every draft as I complete them, then will eventually post comparisons of the drafts so that readers can follow the changes made to the book.
My hope is still to let readers collaborate a little bit on this book. Feel free to visit my forums and email me with your impressions of the novel. Your feelings and questions are important to me and can help this book grow better.
I hope that you enjoy this book. If you do, the best thing you can do to say thanks would be to purchase a copy when it is released! You are also welcome to share it with friends see the rights explanation below. Remember my published novels as well. They are far more polished, and if you want to make certain that I write more fantasy novels in the future, the best thing to do is indicate your will to Tor by purchasing my novels. You can find sample chapters of each of my published works at the end of this document.
Using this, you can also find a list of revisions spoiler warning! Most of all, I want to thank you for reading.
I think the primary motivation of all artists is the desire to express themselves. My books are not complete until you read them and add your imagination to the events they contain. For me, sales are secondary to that.

From 1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago. Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people. By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
Warbreaker is a cosmere novel by Brandon Sanderson , which is available for purchase in bookstores or for free download from his website. Warbreaker tells the story of two sister princesses, Vivenna and Siri , of the country Idris. Vivenna has been raised her entire life to marry the God King of the rival nation of Hallandren , in the hopes that this marriage will forestall Hallandren's invasion of Idris, which they have been threatening for years. For reasons of political expediency, as well as the personal preferences of the King of Idris, Siri is sent, unprepared, in Vivenna's stead. Vivenna, feeling her life to be devoid of purpose after Siri is sent in her place, follows her to Hallandren in hopes of rescuing her. Both Siri and Vivenna then become involved in intrigues intended to cause war between their home nation of Idris and Hallandren, and attempt to prevent the war from happening separately: Siri from within the government and Vivenna by cooperation with the underground.
