Brandon Sanderson Synopsis: Elantris was the beautiful capital of Arelon, populated by benevolent beings who used magic to benefit one and all. Each one of these beings was once a regular person who was then touched by the transforming power called the Shaod. Then, a decade ago, the power failed and the Elantrians became powerless creatures and the city went dark and began to crumble. Arelon’s new capital is Kae, which lies in the shadow of Elantris. Princess Saene arrives to marry Crown Prince Raoden, hoping to find love. Instead she finds the Prince dead and she is considered his widow. Now, she must use her newfound status in order to push back Hrathen, who wants to convert Arelon and claim it for his emperor and god.
