First, Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Shadow continues the Ender saga, this time by telling the story of Bean’s past, and giving us his perspective on the kids’ time at Battle School. Will his troubled childhood resonate through his future, or will he overcome it to become as great as his friend Ender Wiggin?
In Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn, for a thousand years the ash fell and no flowers bloomed. For a thousand years the Skaa slaved in misery and lived in fear. For a thousand years the Lord Ruler reigned with absolute power and ultimate terror, divinely invincible. Then a terribly scarred, heart-broken half-Skaa, trapped in the depths of the Lord Ruler’s most hellish prison, found in himself the powers of a Mistborn. Now the brilliant thief Kelsier turns his talents to the ultimate caper, with the Lord Ruler himself as the mark.
Brian Staveley’s The Emperor’s Blades tells the tale of the Emperor of Annur, slain by enemies unknown, and his daughter and two sons, scattered across the world, working to unmask the assassins. Each of them also has a life-path on which their father set them, and their destinies tangle with both ancient enemies and inscrutable gods. Plus, people ride giant hawks into battle!
