El aliento de los dioses o Warbreaker, segunda novela de Brandon Sanderson, es una rara avis en la fantasía épica: una narración completa en un único volumen, con toda la imaginación, la aventura, la magia y los entrañables personajes a los que este autor, destinado a heredar el trono de todo un género, nos tiene acostumbrados. Hace años, el monarca de Idris firmó un tratado con el reino de Hallandren según el cual el rey Dedelin enviaría a su hija mayor, Vivenna, para casarse con Susebron, el rey-dios de Hallabdren. Vivenna ha sido adiestrada durante toda su vida para ser una novia adecuada para Susebron y así cumplir con su deber y ayudar a forjar una paz estable entre los dos reinos. Ese era el plan, pero el monarca de Idris envía a su hija Siri, desobediente e independiente, en lugar de Vivenna. Mientras intenta encontrar su lugar en la corte de Susebron, Siri descubre la verdad oculta sobre el rey-dios. En Idris, Vivenna se siente intranquila y teme que su hermana no esté preparada para esa nueva vida, por lo que decide viajar a Hallandren. Allí se reúne con la gente de Idris que trabaja en la capital, Telir, y comienza una nueva vida de espionaje y sabotaje. El plan de Vivenna es rescatar a Siri, aunque tal vez esta ni necesite ni desee ser salvada. Reseñas: «Sanderson no es solo un gran y prolífico autor; es también alguien que, amando la fantasía, sabe que debe ser renovada y que debe ser repensada para encarar con éxito el siglo XXI.» Miquel Barceló, autor de Ciencia ficción. Nueva guía de lectura «Brandon Sanderson es una bomba a punto de estallar.» Ernest Alós, El Periódico de Catalunya

Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago. Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people. By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. 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.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson: his debut novel for the young adult audience More than anything, Joel wants to be a Rithmatist. Chosen by the Master in a mysterious inception ceremony, Rithmatists have the power to infuse life into two-dimensional figures known as Chalklings. Rithmatists are humanity's only defense against the Wild Chalklings—merciless creatures that leave mangled corpses in their wake. Having nearly overrun the territory of Nebrask, the Wild Chalklings now threaten all of the American Isles. As the son of a lowly chalkmaker at Armedius Academy, Joel can only watch as Rithmatist students study the magical art that he would do anything to practice. Then students start disappearing—kidnapped from their rooms at night, leaving trails of blood. Assigned to help the professor who is investigating the crimes, Joel and his friend Melody find themselves on the trail of an unexpected discovery—one that will change Rithmatics—and their world—forever. Bestselling author Brandon Sanderson brings his unique brand of epic storytelling to the teen audience with an engrossing tale of danger and suspense—the first of a series. With his trademark skills in world-building, Sanderson has created a magic system that is so inventive and detailed that that readers who appreciate games of strategy and tactics just may want to bring Rithmatics to life in our world.

En su libro más impactante desde que escribiera Gracia Divina vs. Condenación Humana y El Jesús que nunca conocí, Philip Yancey examina el núcleo vital —el aspecto más fundamental, controvertido, desconcertante y profundamente enriquecedor— de nuestra relación con Dios: la oración.¿Qué es la oración? ¿Cómo opera? Y el punto más importante: ¿Sirve para algo? En teoría, la oración es el hecho humano esencial, el punto de contacto más valioso entre nosotros y el Dios del universo. En la práctica, la oración a menudo es frustrante, confusa y llena de misterios. Oración: ¿sirve para algo? explora el lugar misterioso donde Dios y el ser humano se encuentran y se relacionan. Yancey comparte sus inquietudes y plantea preguntas tales como: • ¿Estará escuchando Dios? • ¿Por qué habría de interesarse Dios en mí? • Si Dios conoce todas las cosas, ¿qué sentido tiene la oración? • ¿Por qué las respuestas a la oración parecen ser tan arbitrarias y caprichosas? • ¿Por qué a veces Dios parece estar tan cerca de mí y otras veces tan lejano? • ¿Cómo puedo hacer para orar más? «He descubierto que el propósito más importante de la oración tal vez sea dejar que Dios nos ame», dice Yancey. Este libro nos anima a orar a Dios el Padre, que sabe qué nos deparará el futuro, que conoce nuestras fibras más íntimas, y que nos invita a consolidar nuestra relación eterna con él por medio de la oración.

In 2005, Brandon Sanderson debuted with Elantris, an epic fantasy unlike any other then on the market. To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Tor is reissuing Elantris in a special edition, a fresh chance to introduce it to the myriad readers who have since become Sanderson fans. This new edition begins with a preface by author Dan Wells, the first person to read the completed novel, and a new afterword by Sanderson explaining how he came to write the book and its place in the Cosmere, the unified universe of all his Tor novels. Also included is an expanded version of the "Ars Arcanum" appendix, with more of the technical details of the book's magic that fans can never get enough of. Elantris was truly a milestone both for Sanderson and for the genre of epic fantasy. It deserves this special treatment, something Tor has done only once before, with Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game. Sanderson fans old and new will be excited to discover it.

The #1 New York Times bestseller and sequel to Steelheart from Brandon Sanderson, the author of Oathbringer, coauthor of Robert Jordan’s The Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn trilogy, presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight. And don’t miss Calamity, the exciting conclusion to the Reckoners series! Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart--invincible, immortal, unconquerable--is dead. And he died by David's hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers. Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic Regalia, Babylon Restored is flooded and miserable, but David is sure it's the path that will lead him to what he needs to find. Entering a city oppressed by a High Epic despot is risky, but David's willing to take the gamble. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic--Firefight. And now he will go on a quest darker and even more dangerous than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers. Praise for the Reckoners Series: #1 New York Times Bestselling Series “Another win for Sanderson . . . he’s simply a brilliant writer. Period.” —Patrick Rothfuss, author of the New York Times and USA Today bestseller The Name of the Wind “Action-packed.” —EW.com “Compelling. . . . Sanderson uses plot twists that he teases enough for readers to pick up on to distract from the more dramatic reveals he has in store.” —The A.V. Club

Forget minor hazards such as the H-Bomb. The discovery of time travel means that everything we know, anyone we know, might not only vanish, but never even have existed. Against that possibility stand the men and women of the Time Patrol, dedicated to preserving the history they know and protecting the future from fanatics, terrorists, and would-be dictators who would remold the shape of reality to suit their own purposes. Manse Everard, the Patrol's finest temporal trouble-shooter, bears a heavy burden. The fabric of history is stained with human blood and suffering which he cannot, must not do anything to alleviate, lest his tampering bring disastrous alterations in future time. Everard must leave the horrors of the past in place, lest his tampering - or that of the Patrol's opponents, the Exaltationists - erase all hope of a better future, and instead bring about a future filled with greater horrors than any recorded by past history at its darkest and most foul.

Harry Haller is a sad and lonely figure, a reclusive intellectual for whom life holds no joy. He struggles to reconcile the wild primeval wolf and the rational man within himself without surrendering to the bourgeois values he despises. His life changes dramatically when he meets a woman who is his opposite, the carefree and elusive Hermine. The tale of the Steppenwolf culminates in the surreal Magic Theater—for mad men only. Steppenwolf is Hesse's best-known and most autobiographical work. With its blend of Eastern mysticism and Western culture, it is one of literature's most poetic evocations of the soul's journey to liberation. Originally published in English in 1929, the novel's wisdom continues to speak to our souls and marks it as a classic of modern literature.
