Publisher's Summary

In 2005, Brandon Sanderson debuted with Elantris, an epic fantasy unlike any other then on the market. To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Tor is reissuing Elantris in a special edition, a fresh chance to introduce it to the myriad listeners who have since become Sanderson fans.
This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels. Also included is the first book appearance of the short story "The Hope of Elantris", revealing interesting action referred to late in the novel, and an expanded version of the "Ars Arcanum" appendix, with more of the technical details of the book's magic that fans can never get enough of.
Elantris was truly a milestone both for Sanderson and for the genre of epic fantasy. It deserves this special treatment, something Tor has done only once before, with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Sanderson fans old and new will be excited to discover it.

Fantastic & Superb!

I cannot possibly express the great writing of Brandon Sanderson. I am buying every book of his and devouring them as fast as I can. I am an old fantasy reader and loved Salvatore, Hickman & Weis, Brooks, etc. I cannot compare these with Sanderson. He is on a level above the others.

I read Rothfuss (which is also fantastic) and on a review of his book started reading Sanderson. I have literally not read any that have equaled Sanderson. I think he could write about mud and it would be totally enthralling! If you have not read any of his books or just not this one, you will enjoy this book thoroughly!

The narrator did a great job as well. At first I was not sure of the characters, but when I got into the story he was spot on! Great job Mr. Garrett!

Narrator was great!

The narration by Jack Garrett takes the cake! Not that the story was lacking at all but the narration kept me drawn in during the dry parts of the novel. I also love how the overall story felt whole to me. I could tell it was very carefully thought out and constructed.
