#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson adds to his Cosmere universe shared by Mistborn and The Stormlight Archive with a new standalone novel especially for fans of Asian pop culture. Illustrated by Aliya Chen. Yumi comes from a land of gardens, meditation, and spirits, while Painter lives in a world of darkness, technology, and nightmares. When their lives suddenly become intertwined in strange ways, can they put aside their differences and work together to uncover the mysteries of their situation and save each other’s communities from certain disaster? Note from Brandon: For years I’ve wanted to write a fantasy novel focused on people working in jobs that are normal to them, but fantastical to us as readers. Added to that, my wife has encouraged me to feature more romance in my stories. When I threw two people together whose jobs seem fantastical to each other, the tale of Yumi and the Nightmare Painter was the result. This novel in particular feels like a special gift to my wife—one we’re both pleased that you now get to share.
