The Sunlit Man

By Brandon Sanderson
The Sunlit Man by Brandon Sanderson digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

From the #1 Kickstarter campaign of all time—#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson adds to his Cosmere universe shared by Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive with a new standalone novel that combines fantasy and science fiction. Illustrated by Ernanda Souza, Nabeste Zitro, and kudriaken.

Running. Putting distance between himself and the relentless Night Brigade has been Nomad's strategy for years. Staying one or two steps ahead of his pursuers by skipping through the Cosmere from one world to the next.

But now, his powers too depleted to escape, Nomad finds himself trapped on Canticle, a planet that will kill anyone who doesn't keep moving. Fleeing the fires of a sunrise that melts the very stones, he is instantly caught up in the struggle between a heartless tyrant and the brave rebels who defy him.

Failure means a quick death, incinerated by the sun…or a lifetime as a mindless slave. Tormented by the consequences of his past, Nomad must fight not only for his survival—but also for his very soul.

Note from Brandon:
I sincerely believe that books don't live until they're read. While I would write even if no one were reading—it's who I am—I thrive because I know the stories are being brought to life by all of you. In this, stories are a special kind of art, particularly when written down. Each of you will imagine this book, and its characters, a little differently—you will each put your own stamp on it, making it yours. I don't believe a story is quite finished until that has happened—until the dream in my head has become a reality (even if briefly) in yours.

And so this book is yours, as they all are once you read them. Thank you so much for bringing life to my work, and to the Cosmere.

Slightly Smiling Face“Holy Cosmere connections. Finding out Nomad’s identity was GREAT but I’m concerned it’s going to mess with my expectations for Stormlight 5, but who knows I imagine there’s a bigger plan Sanderson has if he’s willing to publish this early. As for the book itself, it’s got that fun Mistborn feel where you discover more and more as you truck along and things are slowly revealed. The world was fun, reminded me of Riddick Chronicles. Otherwise, I didn’t LOVE Elegy’s character it just fell a little flat to me but I really enjoyed Nomad and Aux.”
“I think I will like this book better as a reread once I catch up to it in the main timeline. It feels too much like reading something out of order. Still, I did find the world interesting, and I liked Nomad and his story in this book. I’m curious about what happens to him after this- but I’m more curious about what happened in the past. What was Wit’s/Hoid’s failed plan?”
