Synopsis

Elantris era la capital de Arelon:gigantesca, hermosa, literalmente radiante, llena de seres benevolentes que utilizaban sus poderosas habilidades magicas en beneficio de todos. Sin embargo, cada uno de estos semidioses fue una vez una persona comun y corriente hasta que fue tocado por el misterioso poder transformador del Shaod. Hace diez anos, sin previo aviso, la magia fracaso. Los elantrians se volvieron criaturas sin poder, como leprosos, y el propio Elantris oscuro, sucio y desmoronado. La nueva capital de Arelon, Kae, se agacha a la sombra de Elantris. La princesa Sarene de Teod llega para un matrimonio de Estado con el principe heredero Raoden,con la esperanza - basandose en su correspondencia - de encontrar tambien el amor. Ella descubre en cambio que Raoden ha muerto y es considerada su viuda. Tanto Teod como Arelon estan amenazados como los ultimos holdouts restantes contra las ambiciones imperiales de los despiadados fanaticos religiosos de Fjordell. Asi que Sarene decide usar su nuevo estatus para contrarrestar las maquinaciones de Hrathen,un sumo sacerdote fiordo que ha venido a Kae para convertir Arelon y reclamarlo por su emperador y su dios. Pero ni Sarene ni Hrathen sospechan de la verdad sobre el principe Raoden. Golpeado por la misma maldicion que arruino Elantris, Raoden fue exiliado en secreto por su padre a la ciudad oscura. Su lucha por ayudar a los miserables atrapados alli comienza una serie de eventos que traeran esperanza a Arelon,y tal vez revelar el secreto de Elantris mismo.

About the Author

American author, Brandon Sanderson, writes of epic fantasy and science fiction. His best known works include Cosmere, a fictional universe in which most of his novels are set. They include, the Mistborn series, and the Stormlight Archive, and also finishing The Wheel of Time, that was Robert Jordan's high fantasy novel (that he began writing before his untimely death). He also made popular the terms "hard and soft magic systems" in his Sanderson's Laws of Magic. The media company, DMG Entertainment has rights to the production movie of the Cosmere universe series.

Sanderson graduated from Brigham Young University. He began studies in biochemistry, to become a doctor, but after a two year break to do mission work for his church, he decided he wanted to write, and changed majors to English Literature. He took a night job at a local hotel in Provo, Utah while at BYU, so he could write while working. His roommate during that time was Ken Jennings, who ten years later had a 74-game winning streak on Jeopardy. After graduation from BYU, Sanderson married Emily Bushman, a fellow English major who later became his business manager.

Sanderson sold his first book to Moshe Feder at Tor in 2003. He had almost given up after submitting his manuscript a year and one half earlier. That first novel was Elantris, and over the next few years, Tor also published the Mistborn Trilogy, The Alloy of Law, Warbreaker, and The Way of Kings, the first in the ten-volume series, The Stormlight Archive. The second in that series was Words of Radiance. Other volumes continue in the works. Sanderson's acclaimed Infinity Blade: Awakening was an ebook best seller for Epic Games, accompanying their popular iOS video game series.

Sanderson, his wife, Emily, and their three sons live in American Fork, Utah.
