  • Why did you create this top Brandon Sanderson books list?

    We wanted to gather the most accurate and trustworthy list of best Sanderson books and novels.

  • What is the most popular Brandon Sanderson book?

    Mistborn: The Final Empire is the most popular of his fantasy books. Knowing for sure is a mystery since we don't have access to his book sales numbers. But since Mistborn is probably the most popular of Sanderson's series, it would make sense that the first of the story is the most popular one.

  • Isn't the Stormlight Archive series his most popular series?

    Again it's hard to say which is his best known book. But if you want to check out the (great!) Stormlight Archive, try its first book (which you can see on on our best books list) The Way of Kings.
