Fans of Sanderson's other works will eagerly devour this collection, in which familiar characters return and familiar worlds are further explored. (KIRKUS REVIEWS)

Full of action (THE SUN)

as always, Brandon Sanderson creates a unique and interesting universe we get to explore alongside the protagonist...a fun, action packed ride for those of us who remain a child at heart. (Best Fantasy Books)

The world of The Reckoners is suddenly presented in all its glory. It's an incredibly vibrant setting that showcases the entire breadth of Sanderson's talent. Expect to finish this one in single sitting. (Upcoming 4 Me)

The stories are complex, fascinating, and filled to the brim with three-dimensional characters (Fantasy Book Review)

Di Francesco il 26 gennaio 2017
Formato: Copertina rigida
“Arcanum Unbounded” è la raccolta di tutti i racconti scritti finora da Sanderson nel suo universo “Cosmere”, l’universo in cui sono ambientati le sue saghe principali. Ecco i titoli ed il mondo in cui sono ambientati:

• “The Emperor’s Soul” (Sel, mondo di “Elantris”). Sistema magico pazzesco, diverso da quello letto in Elantris. Il migliore racconto della raccolta, vale da solo il prezzo del libro. Vincitore del premio Hugo.
• “The Hope of Elantris” (Sel, mondo di “Elantris”). Racconto che intende coprire un buco nella trama di “Elantris”. Non avrebbe senso leggerlo se non si è letto “Elantris”.
• “The Eleventh Metal” (Scadrian, mondo di “Mistborn”). E’ una sorta di prologo alla trilogia originale di “Mistborn”.
• “Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania, Episodes 28 through 30”
(Scadrian, mondo di “Mistborn”), ambientato nell’epoca della seconda era di Mistborn, un racconto leggero e comico.
• “Mistborn: Secret History” (Scadrian, “Mistborn”). Questo è probabilmente il racconto più interessante per gli amanti del Cosmoverso. Qui sono fornite tante informazioni che danno lo spunto a teorie sul Cosmoverso. Il racconto letto da chi non ha letto la trilogia originale di “Mistborn”, non avrebbe alcun senso, ma per i più accaniti fan di Sanderson, fornisce un quantitativo enorme di info.
• “White Sand” (Taldain, mondo in cui è ambientato “White Sand”). Un breve estratto del romanzo da cui l’omonima graphic novel è stata ispirata.
• “Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell” (Threnody, mondo di cui si legge per la prima volta). Atmosfere fantastiche e sistema magico originale.
• “Sixth of Dusk” (First of the Sun, mondo di cui si legge per la prima volta).

5.0 su 5 stelle Rewards faithful readers with an even deeper understanding of Sanderson's creations 22 novembre 2016
Di Bob Milne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
Weighing in at 672 pages, Brandon Sanderson's first short fiction collection not only pulls together various short stories and novellas from across his Cosmere, but organizes them by Shardworlds, complete with essays and illustrations on each. Arcanum Unbounded is a collection that would no doubt be daunting to a new reader, but which rewards the faithful with an even deeper understanding of his creations.

The collection opens with a pair of stories set in the world of Elantris, with “The Emperor's Soul” serving as a standalone tale, and “The Hope of Elantris” taking place following the original novel. Soul was the one story in the collection I had read before, and it was just as fascinating the second time around. As for Hope, it will have to wait until I read the source material, since it contains major spoilers.

Not surprisingly for his longest series to date, Mistborn gets three entries here. “The Eleventh Metal” was a pleasant surprise, being a prequel to the series with my favorite character, Kelsier. As odd as it was to see him so early in his career, it was also interesting to get some more insights into his tortured past. “Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania, Episodes 28 through 30” was, by far, the most entertaining story in the collection. Written as a pulp adventure tale, what really makes it work is all the footnotes from the fictional editor who is forced to publish such nonsense. “Mistborn: Secret History” brings us back to Kelsier, following the events of the first Mistborn novel. It was an interesting story, with some entertaining moments, but I've never been a fan of stripping a character of his powers and taking him out of his element.

“White Sand" was a fascinating treat, offering up a sample of the graphic novel on which it's based (which is awesome all on its own), and then pairing it with the short story from which it originated. "Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell” is another standalone story set in its own world, and probably the darkest piece in the collection. It's a story of haunted forests, human cruelty, painful secrets, and the undying thirst for revenge. As far as the new material here is concerned, this was probably my favorite. Ironically, the next entry - “Sixth of Dusk” - was the only story that didn't work for me. I can't put my finger on what was wrong with it, but the story just never grabbed me.

The self-professed crown jewel of the collection, "Edgedancer," is an all-new Stormlight Archive novella that I am pleased to say was everything I was looking for. It's a great story that gives us a peek at another part of the world, and which looks at the magic of the world from a younger, less experienced perspective. It's a story that blends sorrow, awe, and humor in equal measure, revisiting the character of Lift, who first appeared in Words of Radiance.

Even if you've read some of the material before, the packaging of Arcanum Unbounded makes it a must read. Each section of the book has an illustration of the solar system in which it takes place, with the character of Khriss (who has written the Ars Arcanum at the end of each novel) providing a short essay on the world. Each story gets an illustration to introduce it, along with a Postscript from Sanderson, explaining how it fits into the Cosmere, why it's important, and how it came about. While it's not a good place to start for new readers, it's definitely a treat for fans.

5.0 su 5 stelle Sanderson Delivers! 22 novembre 2016
Di Mr. Jared C. Serra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Sanderson is best known for writing HUGE fantasy novels. Brandon Sanderson is a born winner. It seems everything he tries his hand at is a home run! That is the case with this collection of shorts. I had already read every entry here with the exception of the new Stormlight Archive story Edgedancer. Stormlight is already my favorite series running right now. Will just say I have read the current books a couple of times. :)

Edgedancer is great. It runs 40 thousand words. It is about roughly about 10 percent the length of one of the main novels. The main character of it is Lift, who you will have met in one of the interludes of Words of Radiance. Her story here serves many purposes. First and foremost, it is just a heck of a lot of fun. Next it expands on the world that this series takes place on. Last it is a good primer for book 3. Helping curb my appetite for Oathbringer along was worth the price of admission. If you liked Lift's awesomeness in WoR then rest assured this will not disappoint.

That isn't the only reason to buy this book. The other stories contained are incredible. My personal favorite is The Emporer's Soul. It is one of my favorite pieces of fiction of all time!

Thanks for reading my review! If you have any questions on my review or the contents of the novel please post me a comment.

5.0 su 5 stelle A great new novella for Sanderson fans 17 gennaio 2017
Di Katherine Cowley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Since I've read most of the things in this collection already, I'm specifically reviewing the new Lift novella.

The first chapter didn't really work for me--it felt like a rehash of what we saw in the previous book, and was more or less all the things I didn't like about the character.

But then the novella got into the main conflict--and it really worked for me. It made me love Lift and her way of seeing the world. It provided great context for what was happening in the world, and moved the overall series plot forward. It made me want to spend much more time with her. So--it was a win. Well worth my read and purchase.

While I love Brandon Sanderson's novels, I've mostly ignored the connections between them and the overall Cosmere--it doesn't particularly interest me. However, the essays at the start of each section were interesting and offered clues to the bigger picture, and made me a bit more interested in the underlying, connecting story.
5.0 su 5 stelle Sanderson fans won't be disappointed 11 marzo 2017
Di TuckerReviewer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Aimed directly at voracious Sanderson readers, this collection fills in gaps from all over the Cosmere. It combines excellent short stories in a number of his Cosmere worlds with descriptions of the systems and some background that helps you understand how the worlds relate. If you have never read Sanderson before, I would recommend starting elsewhere - Warbreaker or Mistborn: The Final Empire. But come back to this one later, once you have been pulled in, and you won't regret it. disappointed

If you follow Sanderson's work closely, the odds are you have already read a number of these short stories. The only truly new one, Edgedancer, is quite good. A stormlight novella, but in a different tone than the others, as it focuses on Lift, a character who tries to live life... differently. Mistborn: A secret history is also excellent, but don't read it until finishing the original Mistborn trilogy, massive spoilers.

And the excerpt from the White Sand graphic novels has me excited to get to those; I don't normally do a lot of graphic novels, but this one seems like it will be excellent.

The hardback is beautifully done; well illustrated, attractive, and solid. Gave a copy to my brother, made a great Christmas present.

I have also listed to the Audible audiobook, and while the content is just as good I was not a huge fan of the narrators. Kramer and Reading alternate sections based on the gender of the primary character being focused on in that story (or part of the story). They each do significant sections at a time, but the change of pace was more jarring than helpful for me.

Overall, an excellent addition to your Sanderson collection. Don't hesitate if you enjoy his work.

3.0 su 5 stelle Read Edgedancer instead. 21 giugno 2017
Di Chris Burk - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This was solid Sanderson, but only two of the pieces stood out in this collection. Edgedancer, which can be purchased separately is definitely worth the read. The rest seemed as though they were half-hearted attempts to give fans of the Cosmere some filler while waiting for Oathbringer. Mistborn, The Secret History used to be available for free. I was hoping it would get a rewrite for this collection. It did not, and is still just had writing. Kelsier seems to have been replaced with a particularly bad Kandra, Ruin by a temperamental 12 year old, and Preservation has dementia. Skip this unless you enjoyed The Silmarillion for its dazzling prose and plot, and just buy Edgedancer.
