16 Books With Magic and Mythology That Will Absolutely Bewitch You
The Praetor War—the battle to destroy Rome from within—is in full force, and Nic is caught in the crossfire. The secretive Praetors are determined to unlock a powerful amulet—one sure to bring the empire to its knees. Worse, the Praetors believe Nic holds the key to finding this amulet, and they will stop at nothing to steal it, even if that means harming the people Nic holds most dear.
He challenges the Praetors to a chariot race. His attendants have hidden this from the empire and will trade Shai her life in exchange for creating a Forgery of the emperor's soul, hopefully making it seem like the attack on his life never happened. The book is set in the cosmere , taking place in the same world as Elantris , though in a very different region and without any of the characters from Elantris.
Hoid was written into the original prologue, as the Imperial Fool who set up Shai to be caught stealing the Sceptre. The scene was removed due to Brandon's alpha readers not liking it. The god which Shai worships has some relevance to the whole cosmere.
Note: the Postscript is found in Arcanum Unbounded , a collection of Cosmere stories.
The tojang , or red stamps that adorned much of the artwork, stood out to him. In addition to the stamps of the artists who created the work, scholars and nobility who particularly liked the work would add their stamp to it, as well. From these stamps came the idea of Soulstamps, capable of rewriting the nature of an object's existence.
The Emperor's Soul - The Coppermind - 17th Shard

From The Coppermind. Alas, we are still awaiting the third and final entry in this trilogy.
More titles to consider
The story centers around Kvothe, who recalls his younger years as a student of magic and a musician. Still, what he has finished is worth reading, especially the first three books. The world Susanna Clarke creates is one shrouded in mystery.
Set in England in the early 19th century, magic has all but disappeared from the land. The legendary Raven King has not been seen in ages, and magicians are little more than scholars of magical history. Then two practical magicians appear, and everything changes. This is a slow burn, but for those with the patience for it—and who enjoy footnotes—learning more about this strange version of England and the dark and dangerous world of faerie that exists alongside it, is a truly rewarding experience.
Bakker makes you think about more than just the fantasy world he created.
I would stop after the first three books, however. The second four-book series, The Aspect Emperor was a pretty massive letdown. The first two books were good, but the second two fell apart rather badly.

Still, the first three in this series tell a complete and satisfying story.
