Oathbringer UK Tour Dates, Oathbringer Endpapers!


The news just keeps coming for Oathbringer (it's like a book is coming out soon or something), and we now have Oathbringer's UK Tour Dates, which we haven't quite known for a while. And today, Barnes and Noble tweeted out some images of Oathbringer's endpages, which then we got the glorious, full art from Tor.com. We also know exactly who they are now, but maybe you find that to be a bit spoilery, so scroll onward to find out more and to read our analysis on these. Let's start with the UK tour, though.

Oathbringer Endpages

But the big news for everyone is these glorious Oathbringer endpages. Tor.com posted the full images, and they are amazing. The are made by Dan Dos Santos (who did the Warbreaker cover art). Brandon said on Reddit these are in-world representations of the Heralds Ishar and Ash (Shalash):

Here's Ishar, with a Bondsmith glyph on his robes. (Which is sensible, since he's the patron of the Order of Bondsmiths.) In the background there are the three moons of Roshar. In front of him, there's... followers? Does this seem culty to any of you?

Here you can see Ash with her Makabaki skin tone. What's cool about Ash here is that she's the Herald of Beauty, and you can see that this is pretty risque! That translucent dress, with that barely covered safehand! The attention to detail is astonishing. There are garnet earrings, evoking her being the patron of the Lightweavers. There's also the masks, which could represent illusions. Awesome.

Best part? The back endpages of Oathbringer will have Jezrien and Vedel, and are made by another artist. Brandon will tweet pictures of it when he gets his final copy! Nice.

Those really are amazing! Oh, and I'm looking forward to see Vedel. I wonder if these four Heralds will have important roles in Oathbringer somehow.

Interesting that none of the heralds wears their respective color.

Well, Shalash has the earrings, and the gold trim on Ishar's robe evokes heliodor.  I was also surprised at the amount of blue on Ishar's image, though.

If the stone on Ishar's necklace is meant to be heliodor (pale yellow), then both these Heralds would be wearing jewelry with the proper gemstones (garnet earrings for Shalash), but the "artist" didn't carry the gemstone color through to their clothing or surroundings.

Given the metaphysical significance of gemstones on roshar it makes sense that the heralds color coding is done through jewelry rather than clothing.

I figured those were Honor and Cultivation, not Heralds.

edit: nevermind.
