Brandon Sanderson’s Words of Radiance Debuts at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List!

Words of Radiance, the second book in Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archive fantasy series, has debuted at #1 on the New York Times Hardcover Fiction Bestseller list! We are bursting with Stormlight (in a good way) at the news.

The placement speaks highly of the excitement that Sanderson’s new series has generated amongst fans of epic fantasy. Words of Radiance provides a satisfying and deep journey into the complex world that Sanderson has only just begun to unveil, and it’s exciting to be here watching the series’ readership grow alongside that world.
