Brandon Sanderson To Return To Mistborn Era 2 Next Year

Brandon Sanderson gives updates on Wax & Wayne 4 — among his other big series.

Fantasy author Brandon Sanderson has been hard at work writing for the past couple of decades. In that time, he’s finished the beloved Wheel of Time franchise and started at least two more beloved franchise of his own. This November, we will get the fourth entry in the Stormlight Archive series, Rhythm of War. But, as is Sanderson’s style, he has more than enough plans immediately following the release of the epic novel.

Many fans have their eyes toward other miscellaneous works. One such work is the tentatively titled Wandersail, which is a novella that follows the character Rysn in the Stormlight Archive. One fan took to Reddit to ask when we’d be able to expect that Rysn-centric novel. One other fan responded by saying not to forget about Wax & Wayne 4. That novel will be the fourth in the second Mistborn era. Sanderson himself replied to these questions with a complete update on his plans going forward.

“Goal is to start that January 1st, after Skyward 3. Then I’ll do the fourth (and final) Skyward book, on target (hopefully) for Stormlight 5 the following January.”

When asked about Wax & Wayne 4, which is called The Lost Metal, Sanderson gave a more specific update.

“Goal: Finish [Wax & Wayne 4] by one year from today. Release date: Following spring/summer.

“Tidbit… Probably going to lead with a Wayne flashback, instead of a Wax flashback, in this one.”

So, while Rhythm of War is the next big project on the horizon, it’s nowhere near the only thing to look forward to. And that’s not even mentioning the Way of Kings Kickstarter, which will include Way of Kings Prime in it. While it may not be a part of a whole new series, it’ll give us a look at what the story was before Sanderson reworked it, which is great. 

Ironically enough, that Reddit thread had no update on when we can expect that Rysn-centric Stormlight novella. Though, with the Kickstarter launching tomorrow, we may have an update on that sooner than we think.
