#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson expands his Cosmere universe shared by The Stormlight Archive and Mistborn with a new standalone novel for everyone who loved The Princess Bride.

The only life Tress has known on her island home in an emerald-green ocean has been a simple one, with the simple pleasures of collecting cups brought by sailors from faraway lands and listening to stories told by her friend Charlie. But when his father takes him on a voyage to find a bride and disaster strikes, Tress must stow away on a ship and seek the Sorceress of the deadly Midnight Sea. Amid the spore oceans where pirates abound, can Tress leave her simple life behind and make her own place sailing a sea where a single drop of water can mean instant death?

Note from Brandon:

I started writing this in secret, as a novel just for my wife. She urged me to share it with the world??and alongside three other secret novels, with the support of readers worldwide it grew into the biggest Kickstarter campaign of all time. I'm excited to present this first book to you at last: a different type of Brandon Sanderson story, one I wrote when there were no time constraints, no expectations, and no limits on my imagination. Come be part of the magic.… (més)

Tress has only known life on the Rock, an island in the Verdant Sea. But when she hears that Charlie, the man she loves, has been taken captive by the Sorceress in the Midnight Sea, she is determined to rescue him. She manages to board a merchant ship, which is soon attacked by pirates; however, Tress is determined not to let either blood-thirsty outlaws or deadly spores stand in her way.

I picked up Tress of the Emerald Sea not only because of the intriguing synopsis (I love heroines that don't need to be rescued but instead do the rescuing themselves), but also because I was curious to see how much Brandon Sanderson's writing had improved since I read Elantris shortly after it was first published. While this standalone is certainly an improvement, I still can't say that this was a resounding success for me. The world building is exquisite, as you'd expect from Sanderson, and there is no doubt that Tress and the officers on the Crow's Song are wonderful creations, whose character developments really resonated with me, especially Tress's; however, I had trouble with Hoid's narration when he brings himself into the story or passes comment on the events. Hoid (for those who don't know) is a recurring character in the Cosmere universe, according to the author's postscript, with a voice that I felt owed a lot to Terry Pratchett. Not all of Terry Pratchett's books are my cup of tea: I don't like books where the author feels that every second paragraph or so must contain a gag, funny play on words or pun, which gets rather unfunny after a while – I always feel that the author is trying too hard. The same is true for Hoid, unfortunately, which is why I found certain passages in the book grating. Taken together with an uneven pace, I sadly can't award this book more than four stars. ( )

I love the concept of the spore seas - particularly the imagery of Tress carefully pacing her way across the Emerald Sea. But I'm steadily finding YA less enchanting. ( )

What an absolutely amazing book! Tress goes off in search of the guy she loves after he is taken by an evil sorceress. This book has everything: adventure, romance, swashbuckling on the high seas (or spores), and a loveable cast of characters that keep you entertained from the very first word. I've never been one for pirate stories or sci-fi. But I am all in for this one.

A stellar introduction into the world of Brandon Sanderson. ( )

Spoilering most of the review for people who still haven't finished Secret Project #1 (which I see we've title revealed on here), but very generally: I found it delightful, with a sweetness that perfectly counters my listen of the Greenbone saga, ha. Brandon says this takes inspiration from [b:The Princess Bride|21787|The Princess Bride|William Goldman|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1327903636l/21787._SY75_.jpg|992628] as well as [b:Good Omens|12067|Good Omens The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch|Terry Pratchett|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1615552073l/12067._SY75_.jpg|4110990] for what he was aiming for re: tone. I've read neither but have seen adaptations of both, and I feel he accomplished this.

In terms of broader Cosmere spoilers, this one works as a standalone, though there are definite easter eggs/references to other worlds (think of this like, Black Panther: an entry that works on its own but you can find the broader connections to the bigger universe if you look/are in the know). Not obnoxious enough for a casual or new fan, but plenty of tantalizing details for speculation and theorycrafting!

On to book specific thoughts:
Tress is a delightful heroine who really takes agency into actively steering her plot. Something needs doing? Time to think on how to move forward!

It's also really fun having Hoid as narrator, as we've had him in bits and pieces but here he really gets to shine as a storyteller- a little bit smug, but fully self-aware enough to poke fun at himself in his cursed phase.

Because I don't keep up with the minutiae of Words of Brandon, I am not familiar with what the aethers are/have been hinted as, so it was fun to be introduced to them here. I'm reminded of [b:The Dragonriders of Pern|61942|The Dragonriders of Pern (Dragonriders of Pern, #1-3)|Anne McCaffrey|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1348984331l/61942._SY75_.jpg|6614581]'s Threads that fall to the planet, though these have a variety of interactions with water which is fascinating. I'm reminded I should reread [b:Elantris|68427|Elantris (Elantris, #1)|Brandon Sanderson|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1475740953l/68427._SY75_.jpg|2908871] as it's been a while and I don't remember everything going on with aons, but they're specifically used by some characters here.

After I clicked post, I realized another thing that reminded me of Pern- characters who are more technologically advanced than others being perceived as magicians when really, it's a spaceship y'all.
.

The illustrations by Howard Lyon are gorgeous, and I can't wait to see them in physical form. I need to figure out how to zoom in my apps as finger pinching merely changed font size, but I"ll figure it out (or open the PDF version on my desktop).

I'm pleased with the first secret project so far, and look forward to what's essentially collective kickstarter book club discussions :) ( )

Empathy is an emotional loss leader. It pays for itself eventually.
Nature is supposed to announce herself before murdering you. It’s only sporting.
Unfortunately, sympathy is not a valve, to be turned off when it starts to flood the yard. Indeed, the path to a life without empathy is a long and painful one, full of bartered humanity sold at a steep discount.
But for humans at large, knowledge usually equates to empathy, and empathy leads to understanding.
