We have a scoop for you today: a new edition of the first Mistborn novel is coming out May 13th, 2014. Now it's going to be marketed towards teen readers, as evidenced by its new, lower age range, as well as mentioning his other teen book from Tor, The Rithmatist, on the cover. The synopsis has less emphasis on Kelsier and the setting, and focuses on Vin, which is sure to appeal to teen readers more. It also includes the cover that was previously found on the Mistborn ebook trilogy, which is some of our favorite cover art for Mistborn.
It's not entirely surprising that Mistborn would be marketed this way. Brandon once explained that, depending on the audience, you can market a book in very different ways. If someone was a big fantasy reader, he would pitch it with the usual "The Dark Lord won" pitch. For teen readers, he can make a character pitch around Vin.
Right now, we're not sure if the whole original trilogy will be rebranded this way, or if there will be a new box set. Judging from the Nook preview, it seems identical in content, but still, a new printing of Mistborn which brings in new readers is something to get excited about.
