Tress of the Emerald Sea

by Brandon Sanderson
Tress of the Emerald Sea (Secret Project #1) - Brandon Sanderson 8.50   6

The Princess Bride was a direct inspiration for the story for Tress of the Emerald Sea. Sanderson previewed this title via his newsletter and mentioned that William Goldman’s story had always made him wonder: “Why did Buttercup just sit around after she heard her love had been taken by pirates? Wasn’t there anything she could have done?” That question combined with a notion that Sanderson had always wanted to try with central Cosmere character Hoid (or Wit, as some readers may know him) and the result is a 100,000-word novel as told by Hoid. It will ship to backers in January 2023.
