Well Hi There


Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Myrddin and I am an addict. 

On May 3, 2017 a friend requested, via a facebook post, suggestions for Audiobooks that he could listen to on his way to work. I gave some suggestions, and another of my friends commented on this post as well, suggesting Sanderson's Mistborn series. I was in the market for a new series, having just finished the most recent Cotton Malone novel. I went to the library and got The Final Empire. 48 hours later, I placed requests for The Well of Ascension, The Hero of Ages, The Alloy of Law, The Shadows of Self, The Bands of Mourning, and The Arcanum Unbounded. After binge reading/listening to those 6 Novels and the 3 Mistborn Short Stories from the Arcanum, I have set out to read all of the Cosmere books currently published. I just finished Warbreaker about 30 minutes ago, and have decided I need a support group. I am about to start Elantris (on my way home from work today).

Anyway, I wanted to introduce myself to people who, I hope, understand the relentless hunger for more of these epic and intricate tales, as well as the crippiling depression that occurs when the stories are, even temporarily, over.

I'm Myrddin, and that is my story.


PS - Curse you Brandon for raising the bar for Fantasy Literature, so many of my previous favorite stories seem so... dull... now. Like they were written by Drabs... But also, Thank You.

Ohh you haven't even gotten to Stormlight yet.

Give the poor fellow another few weeks. ;) 

Welcome @MyrddinEmrys! You have joined the right community if you are looking for understanding in the ways of Cosmere hunger! I totally encourage you to get involved here at the Shard but beware that spoilers are everywhere! I highly recommend you avoid the "Stormlight" Archive subforum and the "Cosmere Theories" subforum until you have finished "Way of Kings", "Words of Radiance", and "Edgedancer". I'm sure you are aware but the third Stormlight Archive book, "Oathbringer" is going to be released in 15 days and many people on this site are going to be throwing out theories, ideas, crazy ramblings, and all sorts of other stuff in anticipation. :)

Thank you for the heads up.

I Started Elantris yesterday, so far so good, though it doesn't seem to start out as strong as Mistborn. I fully intend to read the Stormlight Archive; I am only waiting on the first book to get delivered to the library (They had the 2nd one available, but Book 1 was on hold by 5 other people)
