Elantris was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. And now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium motivated by dogged religious views. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, rediscover the lost magic and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots? Brandon Sanderson's debut fantasy showed his skill as a storyteller and an imaginer of baroque magical systems to be fully developed from the start.

ELANTRIS WAS THE CITY OF THE GODS
What power could have cursed it?
in 2005, Brandon Sanderson, fantasy's new master storyteller, carried readers away to "a truly original world of magic and intrigue, with the rigor of the best science fiction [and] magnificent characters [that] make this novel unforgettable" (Orson Scott Card). Elantris delightfully proved that a great complete fantasy story can still be told in a single volume of action, intrigue, wonder, and countless surprises. As Locus said, "You're swiftly forget you're reading a first novel...this is a heck of a debut!"
"Brandon Sanderson is the real thing--an exciting storyteller with a unique and powerful vision. Elantris is one of the finest debuts I've seen in years." --David FarlandAbout the Author:
Brandon Sanderson was born in Nebraska in 1975. Since then he has written the Mistborn series, amongst others, become a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author and been hailed as the natural successor to Robert Jordan. He lives in Utah.
