WEFOUNDelantris book 2

With the new book comes a new tour, and Sanderson visited University Book Store in Seattle, WA last night to a packed house, the Methodist Church across the street from the bookstore packed with eager fans all wanting to know more about Sanderson, the new book, and how it ties into his ever-expanding universe known as the Cosmere.

According to the all-mighty Wikipedia, the Cosmere “is a fictional universe where Brandon Sanderson’s adult epic fantasies are all set.” Sanderson has said new readers do not need any Cosmere knowledge to understand the books, and that they can be enjoyed separately. Elements of the Cosmere are slowly being added into the books though, behind the scenes, until they come into the forefront with Dragonsteel , a prequel to the Cosmere universe that Sanderson will write when the Cosmere table is set and pieces are ready to fall.

For new readers, this can all sound daunting. I assure you, it isn’t. Sanderson assures you too. Before his event last night, I asked him where should new Sanderson readers begin when it comes to the Cosmere.
