With ELANTRIS, Brandon Sanderson, fantasy's new master storyteller, carries you away to "a truly original world of magic and intrigue, with the rigor of the best science fiction [and] magnificent characters [that] make this novel unforgettable" (Orson Scott Card). Elantris delightfully proves that a great complete fantasy story can still be told in a single volume of action, intrigue, wonder, and countless surprises. As Locus says, "You'll swiftly forget you're reading a first novel . . . this is a heck of a debut!"
