As such, The protagonist Jerick goes from an aspiring lumberman to a rising student before moving to the royal palace and becoming a scholar At the same time, he is developing his "mocrikenisis", which allows him to see and manipulate individual atoms.

Countering Jerick is the servant to the princess, Ryalla. Her position in the palace gives her close proximity to many influential people, yet her status never allows her to even learn to read - at least, not until the princess grows bored of learning and passes her work to her servant. This grants her invisibility and astral projection, as well as an awesome DBZ-esque blast. Jerick expends great effort to break her out of her shell of shyness, eventually exposing her wonderful personality underneath.

Unfortunately, when Ryalla begins to bludgeon Jerick with teenage-love signs, he makes an abrupt transition into a complete bonehead, leaving Ryalla behind without a second thought. Jerick is the son of a lumberman, like his father before him. When a scholar comes to his town to teach the local students, Jerick jumps at the opportunity to learn and attends the school every day.

Eventually, the king comes to visit, but while he is there, the town is attacked by the Sho Del - a race of white-skinned demons from far off lands. The only important loss in this battle is that of Jericks Parents, but this allows the King to "adopt" jerick and take him to the palace. After about 5 years of studying at the palace, the King is once again attacked by a Sho Del assassin, and Martis fights it off, winning the hand of the Princess.

In a wave of angst-filled rage, Jerick storms out of the castle towards the Shattered Plains, where he hopes to win glory in the war against the Sho Del. This is where things get confusing - anyone who has read "The Way of Kings" will recognize where the Shattered plains originated.

Instead of Gemhearts, the soldiers are chasing after the Dragonsteel wells, where the incredibly valuable liquid Dragonsteel appears periodically. Instead of fighting the Parshendi warriors, they are fighting the Sho Del demons.

Jerick joins Bridge Four, where he befriends Rock and makes enemies with Gaz. This is where the book shows its weakness. The plot moves somewhat awkwardly, and events seem a bit fragmented. Topaz, the mysterious Jest, is dramatically beheaded and tossed off the edge of a cliff.

The last paragraph, however, describes an unnamed man, sitting at the bottom of a cliff, when a head washes onto the beach. He muses to himself, "I always thought it would be my head that grew a new body.

Brandon Sanderson bibliography

Because of that, he hides connections to his other works within each book, creating this "hidden epic". He has estimated that the Cosmere sequence could conclude with at least 40 books. Adonalsium was killed by a group of sixteen conspirators, causing its power to shatter into sixteen different Shards, each of which bears immense power. In one case, the Shards Ruin and Preservation worked together to actually create a planet and its people Scadrial, as featured in Mistborn. Odium has killed—or Splintered—several shards. He has also Splintered Ambition, in the Threnody system. A man named Hoid is seen or mentioned in most Cosmere books.

From their vantage atop the hill, Jerick and Frost could see the strange landscape. Just ahead, the land of southern Fallamore, normally fertile and green in the year-round warmth, suddenly turned brown and dark. The hills dribbled into an enormous flat plateau, the grasses failing at its edges, the land growing sterile and lifeless. Here, extending for miles in either direction, the infamous Shattered Plains spread out before them.
