Brandon Sanderson on Tour for The Rithmatist

More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity’s only defense against the Wild Chalklings—merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles….

And so begins The Rithmatist, Brandon Sanderson’s new young adult fantasy book, out on May 14th from Tor Books. Read a free excerpt from the novel, pre-order the book from your favorite retailer, and catch Brandon on tour throughout the U.S. in the latter half of May!
