The ancient oaths have at last been spoken; the spren return. Men seek that which was lost. I fear the struggle will destroy them. It is the nature of the magic. A broken soul has cracks into which something else can be fit. Surgebindings, the powers of creation themselves. They can brace a broken soul; but they can also widen its fissures.

It involved almost eighteen months of writing, from outline to final revision, and includes the artwork of four different individuals and the editorial eyes of a whole host of people, not to mention the teams at Tor who do production, publicity, marketing, and everything else a major book needs in order to be successful.
For some two decades now, the Stormlight Archive has been my dream-the story I always wished I could tell. The people you'll read about below quite literally make my dreams a reality, and there aren't words to express my gratitude for their efforts.
First in line on this novel needs to be my assistant and primary continuity editor, the incumbent Peter Ahlstrom. He worked very long hours on this book, putting up with my repeated insistence that things which did not fit continuity actually did-eventually persuading me I was wrong far more often than not.
As always, Moshe Feder-the man who discovered me as a writer-did excellent editorial work on the book. Joshua Bilmes, my agent, worked hard on the book in both an agenting and editorial capacity. At Tor, Tom Doherty put up with me delivering a book even longer than the last one when I promised to make it shorter. Paul Stevens acted as superman whenever we needed him. A big thanks to all of you. You may have noticed that this volume, like the one before it, includes amazing art.
My vision for the Stormlight Archive has always been of a series that transcended common artistic expectations for a book of its nature.
As such, it is an honor to once again have my favorite artist, Michael Whelan, involved in the project.
I feel that his cover has captured Kaladin perfectly, and I am extremely grateful for the extra time he spent on the cover-at his own insistence-going through three drafts before he was satisfied. To have endpapers of Shallan as well is more than I had hoped to see for the book, and I'm humbled by how well this whole package came together.
When I pitched the Stormlight Archive, I spoke of having "guest star" artists do pieces for the books here and there.
We have our first of those in this novel, for which Dan dos Santos another of my personal favorite artists, and the man who did the cover for Warbreaker agreed to do some interior illustrations. Ben McSweeney graciously returned to do more brilliant sketchbook pages for us, and he is a pure delight to work with.
Quick to recognize what I want, sometimes even when I'm not quite sure what I want, I've rarely met a person who mixes talent and professionalism in the way Ben does. You can find more of his art at InkThinker.
A long time ago, almost ten years now, I met a man named Isaac Stewart who-in addition to being an aspiring writer-was an excellent artist, particularly when it came to things like maps and symbols. I started collaborating with him on books starting with Mistborn and he eventually set me up on a blind date with a woman named Emily Bushman-whom I subsequently married.
So needless to say, I owe Isaac a few big favors. With each progressive book he works on, that debt on my part grows greater as I see the amazing work he has done. This year, we decided to make his involvement a little more official as I hired him full-time to be an in-house artist and to help me with administrative tasks.
So if you see him, welcome him to the team. And tell him to keep working on his own books, which are quite good. I actually tried to hire Kara first-and Isaac piped up noting that some of the things I wanted to hire her for, he could do.
And it ended up that I got both of them, in a very convenient deal. She's the one you'll interact with if you order T-shirts, posters, or the like through my website. And she's awesome. We used a few expert consultants on this book, including Matt Bushman for his songwriting and poetry expertise.
Ellen Asher gave some great direction on the scenes with horses, and Karen Ahlstrom was an additional poetry and song consultant. Mi'chelle Walker acted as Alethi handwriting consultant.
Finally, Elise Warren gave us some very nice notes relating to the psychology of a key character. Thank you all for lending me your brains. This book had an extensive beta read done under some strict time constraints, and so a hearty bridgeman salute goes to those who participated. My writing group managed to get through about half of the book, which is a lot, considering how long the novel is.
They are an invaluable resource to me.
Patten, Alan Layton, and Karen Ahlstrom. And finally, thanks to my loving and rambunctious family. Joel, Dallin, and little Oliver help keep me humble each day by always making me be the "bad guy" who gets beat up. My forgiving wife, Emily, put up with a lot this past year, as tours grew long, and I'm still not sure what I did to deserve her. Thank you all for making my world one of magic.
