布蘭登.山德森超越《迷霧之子》巔峰之作!  十年計畫奇幻史詩【颶光典籍首部曲】,震撼登場!
  紐約時報排行榜常勝軍、全台暢銷十萬冊奇幻鉅作「迷霧之子」系列作者
  《出版人週刊》、《RT書評》、《圖書館期刊》、美國亞馬遜讀者讚不絕口齊聲推薦!    一個終年被風暴侵襲、寸草難生的岩石國度,  埋藏了神話殞落的祕密,  數世紀後,四個截然不同的命運之人即將交會,  古老的榮光將再度閃耀,或是徹底死寂?
  我,存在於古老久遠的最後寂滅之前,  那是個神將拋棄我們、失落燦軍背叛我們之前的年代。  那時魔法仍籠罩於世上,人們的心中依然有榮光閃耀,全世界曾經屬於我們。  然而我們卻失去了它。  數個靜默荒寂的世紀過去,一切開始有了改變,  神佑的聖器將重返,古老的魔法將回歸--  而那四人是開啟舊日榮景的關鍵之鑰。
  第一人原本是醫者,卻被迫放下療癒之手,成為雙手血腥、扼殺生命的士兵;  第二人是刺客,卻為了被他謀害的人們而落淚;  第三人是騙徒,一名披上學者外衣卻擁有盜賊之心的年輕女子;  第四人是戰將,卻對戰鬥不再渴望,眼睛始終望見過去的魅影。
  他們其中之一會帶來救贖,  而一人將會傾天覆地。
  Brandon Sanderson, widely acclaimed for his work completing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time saga,  begins a grand cycle of his own, with The Way of Kings, Book One of the Stormlight Archive.
  Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.
  It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them.
  One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.
  Brightlord Dalinar Kholin commands one of those other armies. Like his brother, the late king, he is fascinated by an ancient text called The Way of Kings. Troubled by over-powering visions of ancient times and the Knights Radiant, he has begun to doubt his own sanity.
  Across the ocean, an untried young woman named Shallan seeks to train under an eminent scholar and notorious heretic, Dalinar’s niece, Jasnah. Though she genuinely loves learning, Shallan’s motives are less than pure. As she plans a daring theft, her research for Jasnah hints at secrets of the Knights Radiant and the true cause of the war.
  The result of over ten years of planning, writing, and world-building, The Way of Kings is but the opening movement of the Stormlight Archive, a bold masterpiece in the making.
  Speak again the ancient oaths,
  Life before death.  Strength before weakness.  Journey before Destination.  and return to men the Shards they once bore.  The Knights Radiant must stand again.
  ★本書中譯版《颶光典籍首部曲:王者之路》由奇幻基地出版。
作者簡介
布蘭登.山德森
  西元1975年生於美國內布拉斯加州首府林肯。15歲時進書店見到奇幻大師羅伯特.喬丹的暢銷經典鉅作《時光之輪1:世界之眼》,從此一頭栽進奇幻寫作的世界,並立志向大師看齊。多年之後,山德森結識了美國奇幻出版巨擘Tor出版社的編輯莫許.費德,並給了他《諸神之城:伊嵐翠》的書稿。費德把稿子帶回家後,一擱就是半年。等他終於看完稿子並驚為天人,急忙想要聯絡這位年輕新秀,不料山德森已經搬家,費德花了一番功夫才尋得他的下落,馬上就開出條件,想簽下《諸神之城:伊嵐翠》。本來山德森的經紀人約書亞勸他可以再等等,但山德森不願意等,因為他想要和喬丹待在同一個出版社,那就是他夢想成真的殿堂。
  2005年,首部小說《諸神之城:伊嵐翠》終於付梓,隨即獲得《浪漫時代》奇幻史詩大獎,並連續入選2006、2007美國科奇幻地位最高的新人獎項--約翰.坎伯新人獎,美國連鎖書店邦諾更每每將他的書列為頭號選書。之後陸續寫下「迷霧之子」三部曲、「邪惡圖書館」系列、《Warbreaker》等書,各大書評都給予他的著作高度評價。他以這樣驚豔文壇和讀者的超級新人之姿,讓「哈利波特」的美國出版社Scholastic高價買下他「邪惡圖書館」系列的版權,並且讓Tor出版社一口氣簽下他四本書的合約,之後更讓喬丹大師指定他為「時光之輪」完結篇的接班寫作者!
  2009年10月出版「時光之輪」系列接班作《光之回憶1:風起雲湧》(暫名),甚至打敗丹布朗新書《失落的符號》,空降紐約時報排行榜冠軍。
  2010年2月「迷霧之子」三部曲陸續在台出版,以其華麗精采又節奏輕快的內容,破除一般讀者對於奇幻小說設定繁複,閱讀門檻高的類型限制,掀起奇幻小說大眾化熱潮,創造全系列銷售十萬冊佳績!
  2012年,山德森籌思規畫超過十年的壯闊長篇鉅作「颶光典籍」系列首部曲《王者之路》推出,以更洗練的筆法和更精湛的布局,以及永遠讓人恍然大悟、拍案叫絕的故事句點,又再次超越「迷霧之子」系列成就,讓評論家和讀者們紛紛驚呼他為「邪惡的天才」!
  目前任教於楊百翰大學,現居猶他州的歐瑞市,正積極埋頭創作「時光之輪」系列完結篇。
