It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.The CosmereThe Mistborn seriesMistborn: The Final EmpireThe Well of AscensionThe Hero of AgesAlloy of LawShadows of SelfBands of MourningThe Stormlight ArchiveThe Way of KingsWords of RadianceEdgedancer (Novella)Oathbringer (forthcoming)CollectionArcanum UnboundedOther Cosmere TitlesElantrisWarbreakerRithmatistThe Alcatraz vs. the Evil Librarians seriesAlcatraz vs. the Evil LibrariansThe Scrivener's BonesThe Knights of CrystalliaThe Shattered LensThe Dark TalentThe ReckonersSteelheartFirefightCalamity
