Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson brings us deeper into the Cosmere universe with a rollicking, riveting tale that will appeal to fans of The Princess Bride.

The only life Tress has known on her island home in an emerald-green ocean has been a simple one, with the simple pleasures of collecting cups brought by sailors from faraway lands and listening to stories told by her friend Charlie. But when his father takes him on a voyage to find a bride and disaster strikes, Tress must stow away on a ship and seek the Sorceress of the deadly Midnight Sea. Amid the spore oceans where pirates abound, can Tress leave her simple life behind and make her own place sailing a sea where a single drop of water can mean instant death?

Slightly Smiling Face“I enjoyed reading Tress of The Emerald Sea. It was given to me as a birthday gift from my mom. I really liked the portrait of Tress inside the book. The inner cover art is really pretty and there are little touches of nature on the chapter cover pages and and by the page numbers. It was a little boring at times but overall it was a good book. I enjoyed Ulam as a zombie doctor. I thought that was pretty original.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“5 frickin stars, hands down!! This book was so whimsical. It made me laugh out loud. It made me go "Awww!". Made me tear up a lil bit even. 🥹 The character development was well done. The little twists were unexpected. The quotes in here were often deep and profound, too. Checked all my boxes. This book took me on an adventure and I never wanted it to end. Perfection. Please read it. This will probably be a favorite of mine for a while. ❤️”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“Tress of the Emerald Sea features Brandon Sanderson’s finest, most beautiful writing to date. Tress is on a quest to save the man she loves, and gets herself involved with pirates, dragons, a sorceress, and a rat. Its wit and tone are evocative of The Princess Bride while certainly carving out its own place in the bedtime fantasy story genre.”
