The Gollancz Emporium exclusive edition of Words of Radiance by fantasy superstar Brandon Sanderson. Available in a single volume and featuring an array of special finishes, this is the premium way to enter one of the most imaginative fantasy worlds ever conceived.

Words of Radiance, Book Two of the Stormlight Archive, continues the epic saga that started with The Way of Kings. Set in an incredible high fantasy world, the magic, history and scope of imagination will take your breath away.

Storm-ravaged, war-torn Roshar lost its protectors - the Knights Radiant - centuries ago, but now a new danger is arising, new heroes must be found to meet it.

Having distinguished himself as a slave in the Alethi war against Parshendi, Kaladin has been given command of the royal bodyguards, a controversial first for a low-status darkeyes. Now he must protect the king and Dalinar from every common peril as well as the distinctly uncommon threat of the Assassin, all while secretly struggling to master remarkable new powers.

Brilliant but troubled Shallan has been broken in ways she refuses to acknowledge, but in addition she bears a terrible burden: to somehow prevent the return of the legendary Voidbringers and the civilization-ending Desolation that will follow. The answers she needs can be found at the Shattered Plains, but even getting there proves more difficult than she could have imagined.

Meanwhile, at the heart of the Shattered Plains, the Parshendi are making an epochal decision. Hard pressed by years of Alethi attacks, their numbers ever shrinking, they decide to risk everything on a desperate gamble with the very supernatural forces they once fled. The possible consequences for the Parshendi and humans alike - for Roshar itself - are as dangerous as they are incalculable.
