Of the son of a High Duke of the interstellar Empire, much glory is expected. And expected. And still expected, despite endless proof that young Dennison Crestmar has no talent whatsoever for war. But the life Dennison is forced to live will have its surprising lessons to impart…

Brandon Sanderson's novels include Elantris, the Mistborn series (Mistborn, The Well of Ascension, and The Hero of Ages), Warbreaker, and the several volumes of the Stormlight Archive beginning with 2010's The Way of Kings. Following the death of Robert Jordan in 2007, Jordan's wife and editor Harriet McDougal recruited Sanderson to finish Jordan's multi-volume fantasy series The Wheel of Time from Jordan's extensive drafts and notes. Published in 2009, The Gathering Storm, by Jordan and Sanderson, is the first of the three volumes that will conclude Jordan's epic.

They were always at the forefront of the battles where Varion himself was present. It was led by a particular pilot: the woman who had walked beside Varion on Kress. Dennison walked over to the admiral who was contending with Varion in this tenth battle. “My lord, I need you to do something for me. Take

Soldiers and officers alike drew. Dennison stood, immobile amid the yelling and the gunfire, and realized he wasn’t surprised. The greatest High Admiral the Fleet has ever known . . . perhaps the greatest commander mankind has ever seen. Of course he wouldn’t stop with the Reaches. Why would he? Dennison’s father fired again,

Varion sat behind a broad, black commander’s desk, a small data pad in his hand. “What is this?” Dennison asked, perking up. “The feed from a bug we have in Varion’s study,” Kern explained. “Aboard the Voidhawk.” Dennison frowned. “How—?” “Never mind how,” Kern said. “This is our only bug feed of the
