Lots of books, here's a way to enjoy them! Just my suggestion, I found this to be a great way to get into the overall Cosmere.


  1. Mistborn Trilogy 1
    1. The Final Empire
    2. The Well of Ascension
    3. The Hero of Ages
  2. Elantris (This is one of his first books, it has a noticabley different style, but the story is fun and has some Cosmere stuff for later)
  3. The Emporer's Soul: Elantris Novella
  4. Stormlight Archive #1 : The Way of Kings
  5. Warbreaker
  6. Stormlight Archive #2: Words of Radiance
  7. Sixth of Dust - Cosmere novella, doesn't really need to be read in any order
  8. The Alloy of Law - This is a novella introducing Mistborn Trilogy 2
  9. Mistborn Trilogy #2
    1. Shadows of Self
    2. Bands of Mourning
    3. Not out yet!
  10. Secret History - This has huge spoilers across the Cosmere, but you've now been prepped with this guide!
  11. Edgedancer - Stormlight Novella
  12. Stormlight Archive #3: Oathbringer
  13. Dawnshard - Stormlight Novella
  14. Stormlight Archive #4: Rhythm of War


Read these in any order, throw them in between Cosmere books, whatever you want!
