Words of Radiance Chapter Climax 1

This is a discarded draft of Shallan finishing the Shattered Plains drawing in chapter 81. Shallan moved her fingers along the map, measuring distances with the back of her pen, making sure that the four quadrants of the map were equal. The paper was relatively dry, despite that omnipresent rain, even if she felt wet. Read the full article…


Words of Radiance Chapter Adolin 3-3

This discarded scene section would have taken place in chapter 51 as Adolin went to meet Eshonai in Dalinar’s place. “So,” Shallan said from the palanquin being carried beside him. “Why me?” Kaladin and his bridgemen, in the disguise of porters, held the poles to her palanquin. Adolin had expected an objection from them. Instead, Read the full article…



Words of Radiance Chapter Shallan 13

The following abandoned scene was replaced by the second half of chapter 31. Shallan walked up to the rim of a rock formation, looking to the northeast, toward the Shattered Plains. She couldn’t see them yet, but the caravan leaders promised they were only a few days off. She wasn’t certain which emotion she felt Read the full article…


Words of Radiance Bandit Attack Draft

This is a scrapped scene of the bandits attacking Shallan and Tvlakv’s wagons. Clangs rose from behind, the sounds of metal and rocks. Shallan turned sharply and some of the slaves moaned. “What was that?” she demanded of Bluth. “Tag left a trap,” he said. “Someone was poking around our fire.” So they’d been spotted Read the full article…


The Way of Kings: Tien’s Death Attempt 1

[Assistant Peter’s note: This is Brandon’s first attempt at writing Kaladin’s flashback scene including Tien’s death. Brandon quickly abandoned this version and then wrote the published version two days later.] “This is a mistake,” Kaladin said, hurrying across the grassy rock through camp. “Amaram promised that he would remain a messenger boy.” “He is a Read the full article…



The Way of Kings Chapter 28 (D)

This early draft chapter corresponds to the published chapter 28. The first scene here was changed to Adolin’s point of view in the published book, and there are important changes throughout. Dalinar stood with gauntleted hands clasped behind his back, watching two chulls follow their handler, stepping up onto the bridge. The wooden length spanned Read the full article…


The Way of Kings Chapter 26 (D)

This early draft chapter corresponds to chapter 26 in the final book. “I stood in the darkened monastery chamber,” the woman read, standing at the lectern with the tome open before her, “its reaches painted with pools of black where light did not wander. I sat on the floor, thinking of that dark, that Unseen. Read the full article…


The Way of Kings Chapters 23 and 24 (D)

This early draft chapter corresponds to parts of chapter 24, with a bit that went much earlier, into chapter 12. The first scene here was cut entirely, and included the only on-screen appearance of Dalinar’s head Stormwarden, Elthebar, who is mentioned twice by name in the final book. Toward the bottom you’ll find the end Read the full article…
