The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson: Cover Revealed

Gollancz is delighted to be able to share with you the stunning cover for Brandon Sanderson's new book The Rithmatist , published by our sister imprint Orion Children's Books.

Someone is killing the powerful Rithmatist magicians and Joel may be the only one who can stop the killer...

Joel is fascinated by the magical art of Rithmatics, but unfortunately only a chosen few have the necessary gift and Joel is not one of them. Undaunted, Joel persuades Professor Fitch to teach him Rithmatic theory – and soon finds that his knowledge is put to the test when someone starts murdering the top Rithmatic students at his school.

But can Joel work out the identity of the killer and stop them before they realise just what a threat Joel actually is?

The Rithmatist is out where all good books are sold on the 16 May.
