Rhythm of War is Out!
Adam here. I know it’s a bit weird to be just seeing a post about Rhythm of War being released. But between the frantic preparations (including a hard drive failing at the worst possible time) and the holiday, a post was something that I kept pushing off in wake of other matters needing my attention. But now that things have calmed down a bit, I wanted to be sure to get something on the blog for those who may not have known a book just launched. I say, “A book,” but we’re talking about Stormlight #4, and that felt a bit too anticlimactic.
Since Rhythm of War’s release, it’s hit #1 on the New York Time’s List for the Combined Print and E-Book Fiction and the Hard Cover Fiction lists, reaching the #1 spot on Amazon, as well as hitting #2 on USA Today’s list (which isn’t subdivided like the NYT’s list).
We here at Dragonsteel want to give our immense thanks to all of you. We know you have to wait a few years between books and we all (especially Brandon) appreciate all the patience you’ve shown and continue to give us. We know many of you would prefer for Brandon to stop writing other series in the Cosmere—and outside it—but Brandon has developed this schedule intentionally. It’s at a pace that allows him to get new Stormlight books out fairly quickly without taking away his sanity or seeing a diminishing level of quality in the story-telling.
So, again, thank you. We hope you’ve enjoyed—or will enjoy—your next visit to Roshar.
If you missed the release party, you can actually watch the whole presentation here, or on Brandon’s YouTube Channel.
