The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England
Brandon Sanderson

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson—creator of The Stormlight Archive, the Mistborn Saga, and countless bestselling works of science fiction and fantasy—comes this captivating standalone adventure that meshes Jason Bourne, epic fantasy, and time travel.

A man awakes in a clearing in what appears to be medieval England with no memory of who he is, where he came from, or why he is there. Chased by a group from his own time, his sole hope for survival lies in regaining his missing memories, making allies among the locals, and perhaps even trusting in their superstitious boasts. His only help from the “real world” should have been a guidebook entitled The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England, except his copy exploded during transit. The few fragments he managed to save provide clues to his situation, but can he figure them out in time to survive?

The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England book cover

I’m behind in my reading of Sanderson’s main corpus and so diggint into the secret projects has been a bit of a chance. This, being standalone, was really good, and I totally enjoyed the contrast of the main story action and the wonderful commentary from the Book itself.

I didn’t quite feel like I was reading Brandon in spots, but I enjoyed the story a great deal and will reread one day to grasp more nuances.
