Publisher's Summary

An all-new Stormlight Archive novella is the crown jewel of Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection, the first audiobook of short fiction by New York Times best-selling author Brandon Sanderson.

The collection includes eight works in all. The first seven are "The Hope of Elantris" (Elantris), "The Eleventh Metal" (Mistborn), "The Emperor's Soul" (Elantris), "Allomancer Jak and the Pits of Eltania, Episodes 28 through 30" (Mistborn), "Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell" (Threnody), "Sixth of Dusk" (First of the Sun), and "Mistborn: Secret History" (Mistborn).

Originally published on Tor.com and other websites, or published by the author, these wonderful tales convey the expanse of the Shardworlds and tell exciting tales of adventure Sanderson fans have come to expect, including the Hugo Award-winning novella The Emperor's Soul. Arcanum Unbounded also contains a currently untitled Stormlight Archive novella that appears in this audiobook for the first time anywhere.

    "Amazing"

    Here's the deal. I love Sanderson's books, his character creation, plots, the different magic systems. What I don't usually do is collections, so while I was excited for this book I had a bit of trepidation when I started listening/reading it. I shouldn't have feared. Not only were all of the stories amazing. But the fact that a short story for Sanderson is a complete novel for any other author made this book just a collection of books, not short stories. Could not recommend enough.

    "A Great Collection with some spoilers"

    I love this collection! Full of spoilers so I haven't read all of them. Most of these were new to me even though the are free as pdfs in some cases. I love the way Michael Kramer and Kate Reading read these stories and of course Brandon Sanderson writes them so well.

    "Not his best but not too bad."

    A few slow reads intermixed between good potential and good writiing. While Kramer seems to be rehashing the same character voices again, Kate Reading has seemed to expand her character range.

    "Best Credit Use"

    This is the best credit I have spent in a long time. Absolutely loved the stories contained in the collection, as well as the afterwards to each story. I can't wait to hear more!
    P.S. Get this book so worth it.

    "Great look into Brandon Sanderson's worlds."

    I really like what Brandon did here, it's a great look into to what is going on behind the scenes in his his universe he calls The Cosmere. There are some other things in here that aren't really "behind the scenes" stories, but placed in the Cosmere. Overall really good listen. I especially liked the notes on the stories after each one. If you're a fan I highly recommend this.

    "Feels like an easy buck"

    I love Brandon Sanderson's writing and have listened to all his books. That being said, this one feels like an editor grabbed some random pieces and just threw them together. Just not my thing I suppose.

    "So many good stories all in one place. An A+ piece"

    Anyone that enjoys Sanderson's larger works will surely love this collection as well. I did.

    "Great stories, as expected from Sanderson"

    Only one problem with this audiobook and it really bothers me. Not from the story telling but from Michael Kramer. From the Secret Histories of Mistborn. "Spooks" voice is completely wrong. He sounds like Sazed. Maybe I missed something that says when he was made Mistborn it changed the way he talked. I loved Spooks's voice and dialect that he had. It was unique and it was so identifiable. That is my lone complaint.

    "Found the cosmere connectivity story strained"

    Brandon's writing was good but the novelettes were rather bland and seemed more rote than inspired. Even the excellent narration efforts by Michael and Kate weren't enough move me.

    I also wished after reading the Kelsier addendum to the Mistborn Saga that I hadn't. The whole aspect of his continued existence seemed like a contrived literary device that moved beyond the fantasy realm and into the farcical one. Indeed, while I always thought that Vin got a raw deal after saving humankind in the original saga, I also understood the poignancy of it. This addition seemed more like a way to somehow make her demise less tragic which, in turn, lessened the original saga.

    Finally, I believe Brandon best work is when he writes expansive epic fantasy that spans several novels rather than shorter novelettes.
