#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)

looking forward to the next secret! ( )

Tress is a whimsical tale about a girl’s search and rescue mission for her lost love. It was a sweet story that felt very much like the Princess Bride (Interestingly, the author notes in his postscript that he was actually attempting to write a book like that. So yay me for picking up on it and a success by the author!)

This felt very different from the Steelheart or Mistborn books that I have read by the author so may not be your cup if you are looking for mystery and adventure. It’s nice to see an author try different things though and I think this was probably a lovely gift for his wife. The artwork on both the cover and inside was beautiful, just wishing there was more! I would have loved to see Ulaam and the Crimson sea! ( )

Tress has spent her life on a tiny island in the Verdant Sea, but when her true love is kidnapped by a sorceress, she hatches a plan to rescue him.

This story gives off definite Princess Bride vibes, so I wasn't surprised to see it mentioned as inspiration in the Author's Note. It's a fun romp with pirates and a dragon, but I couldn't get past the magic system. Usually I am able to suspend disbelief and accept whatever magic system Sanderson gives us, but for some reason, seas made of spores is where I draw the line. Your mileage may vary, but I was thrown out of the story any time the mechanics of the whole spores vs. water system was mentioned. (Sanderson himself gives a tongue-in-cheek nod to those of us bothered by this sort of thing: "You must not be very much fun at parties.") Recommended for Sanderson fans, but I don't think it's a natural starting point for those unfamiliar with his work, unless the description really sings to you. ( )

What a magical and whimsical book- i loved every second of it! This book made me laugh out loud, it was hilarious- which was unexpected and wonderful coming from Brandon Sanderson! Highly recommend to anyone who wants a good read! ( )

A+ (One of my favorites).

A window washer goes to sea to rescue her boyfriend. High-seas adventure, fantasy worldbuilding, and heaps of whimsy. Even though the bones of the story are standard fairytale stuff, it's a weird, completely unique book. The only negative feeling I have about it is a little frustration that, since it's very tied-in to several Cosmere series, it's not particularly suited to give as a gift.

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.
