Words of Radiance Extract: LIFT
Christmas came early! We are so happy to be able to share with you an extract from Brandon Sanderson’s hotly anticipated second book in the Stormlight Archive, Words of Radiance (in bookshops and available to download from the 6th March 2014). We have some really exciting (top secret) Stormlight Archive things coming your way in 2014, but until then enjoy this standalone extract.
Lift had never robbed a palace before. Seemed like a dangerous thing to try. Not because she might get caught, but because once you robbed a starvin’ palace, where did you go next?
She climbed up onto the outer wall and looked in at the grounds. Everything inside—trees, rocks, buildings—reflected the starlight in an odd way. A bulbous-looking building stuck up in the middle of it all, like a bubble on a pond. In fact, most of the buildings were that same round shape, often with small protrusions sprouting out of the top. There wasn’t a straight line in the whole starvin’ place. Just lots and lots of curves.
Lift’s companions climbed up to peek over the top of the wall. A scuffling, scrambling, rowdy mess they were. Six men, supposedly master thieves. They couldn’t even climb a wall properly.
“The Bronze Palace itself,” Huqin breathed.

Steelheart is here!
To celebrate the UK publication of Steelheart we asked Brandon Sanderson to write us a special message to his UK fans. Steelheart started as a simple “what if?” I was on the road on book tour, driving a rental car up the East Coast. I was running late to meet my editor in Pittsburgh. My […]
