Brandon Sanderson's Infinity Blade novella

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

You have an iPod/iPhone/iPad?  Then you probably know the graphically amazing game Infinity Blade.  If so, and even more if you've played it, you know that the story is quite simple.  You have to slay the God King. However, at first you'll not be powerful enough so you'll die and your son will try to avenge you by trying to slay the God King, 20 years later.  The same happens to him and so on....


That being said, the follow-up, Infinity Blade 2, is a work-in-progress and to bridge the storyline between the two games, Brandon Sanderson wrote a novella.  The ebook is available now and is named Infinity Blade : Awakening. I may have made it sound a bit frivolous but I'm still interested in a novella written by Sanderson, even if the initial thread is thin. Brandon's announcement is available on his blog. Here's the cover of the ebook and the blurb :

 
Trained from birth in swordplay and combat, a young knight named Siris has journeyed to the Dark Citadel with a single purpose: fight through the army of Titans to face the tyrannical God King in one-on-one combat. This was his father’s sacred mission, and his father’s before him, going back countless generations in an effort to free their people from enslavement. But when Siris somehow succeeds where all those from his bloodline previously have failed, he finds himself cast into a much larger world, filled with warriors and thieves, ancient feuds and shifting alliances, Deathless immortals and would-be kings. His quest for freedom will take him on an epic journey in search of the mythical figure known as the Worker of Secrets – the one being in the world who can unravel the secrets of the Infinity Blade.
