The Stormlight Archive is an epic fantasy series by Brandon Sanderson. The series is expected to be comprised of 10 books, in keeping with the series' symmetrical focus in combinations of Ten.

Books in the seriesEdit

The series is estimated to require 10 books to complete, in two 5-book arcs. The first book in the series, The Way of Kings, was published in 2010. A Fall 2013 release was planned for its sequel, but was then postponed to March 4, 2014.

The second book was initially titled Highprince of War (referring to Highprince Dalinar), but the title was changed after Brandon decided to change the book's focus to Shallan. The working title was then The Book of Endless Pages, but that title was then changed after Sanderson was asked if he really wanted a large fantasy novel titled as such. Sanderson then changed it to Words of Radiance, which became the novel's actual title.

The third book is expected to focus on Szeth and is tentatively titled, Stones Unhallowed, previously thought, though incorrectly, to have been changed to Skybreaker.[1]

It has been 'tweeted' that the fourth book may focus on Eshonai, though this focus remains unconfirmed. There is no working title for this book at this time.[2]

The fifth book is expected to focus on Dalinar, with the previously referenced working title intact ... until or unless it changes, of course.[3]
