It's a big day!
At long last, I can reveal the cover for the newest Reckoners novel! Not only that, but you can also check out the first chapter on Brandon Sanderson's website and YouTube channel, and pre-order the book on Audible. It launches July 22nd!
Set in Texas, "Lux" follows the story of a small group of Texas Reckoners — the survivors in many battles against the High Epic Lifeforce. Here's Audible's summary:
When the great red star Calamity appeared in the sky, some believed the end had come. They were right.
Calamity created the Epics: humans with incredible powers they didn't deserve.
They could have saved mankind. They could have lifted us into harmony and prosperity. Instead they burned. They slaughtered. They conquered. And then they ruled.
Jax has learned all of this the hard way. Orphaned at an early age, he's spent most of his childhood training to be a Reckoner - determined to find the Epics' weaknesses, unlock their secrets, and protect those of us who are still left.
But now, the mysterious High Epic Lifeforce has arrived with his flying city, Lux, to plunder what's left of Texas. So Jax and his ragtag team - the few who remain of the once-mighty Texas Reckoners - must take their battle to this floating fortress of riches - and defeat the invincible.
To avenge what has been lost. And rise anew.
