Overview

Trained from birth in swordplay and combat, a young knight named Siris has journeyed to the Dark Citadel with a single purpose: fight through the army of Titans to face the tyrannical God King in one-on-one combat. This was his father’s sacred mission, and his father’s before him, going back countless generations in an effort to free their people from enslavement. But when Siris somehow succeeds where all those from his bloodline previously have failed, he finds himself cast into a much larger world, filled with warriors and thieves, ancient feuds and shifting alliances, Deathless immortals and would-be kings. His quest for freedom will take him on an epic journey in search of the mythical figure known as the Worker of Secrets – the one being in the world who can unravel the secrets of the Infinity Blade.

Based on the bestselling video game from ChAIR Entertainment and Epic Games, this all-new adventure from acclaimed fantasy author Brandon Sanderson digs deeper into the fantastical world of Infinity Blade, a world of mystery and intrigue where magic and technology are indistinguishable, and even life and death are not what they seem.

    A good start

    This is a great short story from Sanderson. It is based off an iPad game so there is some existing background you might not know. Now at 100 pages it is a quick read, but still a fun story with some cool characters.

    The only down side I see is that it seems to end right where Brandon usually starts a story really going! Here's hoping he comes out with a follow up for those that don't play the game.

    Definitely worth the short momey for the book.

    AWESOME BLEND OF ADVENTURE, BRAVERY, AND HUMOR

    Wow, I would sometimes be laughing my head off, or sometimes be aching to turn the page to see who would win the battle. Either way, I love this book!

    Short Story

    Excellent action and good plot but needs to continue to resolve conflicts at the last few pages.

    Only a hundred page. Not a full book, just a tease.

    What you get barely gives a glimpse of the characters and not a story in full.

    Solid novella from the author of Mistborn

    Just finished reading the ebook on loan from a friend who is also a big fan of Brandon Sanderson. I've read his other books and got into this story just as easily as the others. The tale here is short and serves to bridge the gap between two video games, but I didn't feel I was missing anything for not having played the games. Truth be told, I'd almost consider playing them now to find out how the story ends... but really I'd just like to hear Brandon tell the story.

    Highly recommended to fans of Brandon or anyone wanting to read an intriguing little fantasy tale with several twists to keep you turning the pages. : )

    If you enjoy this tale or want a longer form alternative, it has certain themes and world building similarities to Brandon's Mistborn books.

    Just OK

    Introduces an interesting plot and fantasy world, but it would not be high on my priority to read.
