We are thrilled to share that WORDS OF RADIANCE, the second installment in Brandon Sanderson’s #1 New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive series, is #42 on the Der Spiegel Bestseller List in Germany! Last week it debuted at #48 and this week moved up six spots on the list. Der Spiegel is a weekly German news magazine and one of Europe’s largest publications of this sort, with a weekly circulation of more than one million. This is the first time Brandon has been on this list, and he joins fellow JABberwocky clients Charlaine Harris and Peter V. Brett with this achievement.
In other news, WORDS OF RADIANCE was ranked #10 on Amazon’s top 20 “Best Books of 2014: Science Fiction & Fantasy” list! He is in good company on the list, along with George R. R. Martin, Anne Rice, Patrick Rothfuss, Diana Gabaldon, and more.
WORDS OF RADIANCE debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in March, and with this placement on the Der Spiegel list, has now become an international bestseller. This marks the second time one of Brandon’s books has become an international bestseller – The Rithmatist hit #3 on the Eslite bestseller list in Taiwan earlier this year.
