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.

If you are planning to go to a signing, go to our Events and Signings forum, find the event you're going to (each has its own topic) and say so We'd love to know!
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.
