Has anyone else discovered Brandon Sanderson yet?  He's a relatively new young author on the market who I am really enjoying so far.  His first book, Elantris, was awesome.  And Mistborn book 1 was even more so.  Can't wait to see what he does with the whole trilogy because book 1 stood by itself quite well.  He's got quite a knack for original and creative ideas...

Yes. I actually have him as one of my Livejournal buddies and he has the first three chapters posted. I'm so excited! I loves me some Vin.

Cool - another Brandon fan!  I've seen the sample chapters posted, but I decided to just wait for the book to read em.  If you get a chance to go to a book signing, do it!  I met him at a signing for MB 1 and got my copy signed.  He's quite a down-to-earth, approachable guy, and seemed quite thrilled to meet fans.   Guess what tag line he wrote in my book?  - "There's always another secret"  (Which, of course I didn't understand until I had read the book).

  These books sound fantastic!!  Do you need to read Elantris first or is that a stand alone book?

Elantris is a stand alone book but quite good and worth the read. :)

Yes, Elantris is stand-alone,  though  there's room for sequel(s).  I really hope he does eventually do a sequel because it's a really cool world that makes me want to hear more about it.

Mistborn, however, is planned as a trilogy with book 2 being released tomorrow, BUT book 1 stands alone quite well, and doesn't leave  you in suspense waiting for book 2 to see what happens.  For me it just leaves me wanting more about the unique world and magic system, and a couple of questions that were left unanswered.
