Reading suggestions.
« on: September 05, 2010, 11:47:54 AM »
having finished WoK i would reccomend readers (in order to most appreciate and understand the developing plot) read Brandon's books in the order they we're published. If not then read the mistborn trilogy. This will give newcomers a barebones understanding of the forces at play in Brandon's universe (the cosmere)

Elantris or Warbreaker, followed by the other

Mistborn Trilogy

And mixed in those read the Alcatraz books.

Miyabi: I think Nightfire107 ws suggesting what to read to learn something about the overarching plot in the cosmere which the Alcatraz books aren't part of.

And then, of course, there are the two short stories he wrote. Three, if you count the Elantris one.
There's a difference between what's best and what's right. What's best might be different tomorrow or the day after, but right and wrong will stay the same after a thousand years.

Honestly to learn more about the Cosmere search here for topics involving shards of Adonalsium, Hoid, and Realmatic Theory.

no i know. i am spaeking of a focus in infroming new readers. Also it occured to me. A theory is out there that there are 16 shards. Sazed showed that one person may access more than one shard. could one person reunite all the shards and "re-form" adulnasium?

Maybe. I wouldn't be surprised if they could get the power of Adonalsium, but I'd assume that it was more than just power.

I'd say we just don't know enough about Adonalsium yet to say so one way or another.
