2014 Halloween Costume Contest Winners

We received many excellent entries. Though we didn’t have space to include every submission in this post, many thanks to all who participated! There was much gnashing of teeth, several fist fights, and one trip to the ER as we calmly and rationally debated the merits of each costume.

First, we had the smart-alecks. Of course we did:

Fourth Place (Nick C.):

The Color Prince and a Red Wight

Third place (Ollie O.):

Dorian Ursuul Cosplay (2)_FourthPlace
Dorian Ursuul

Second place (Nicola R.):

The Third Eye

Grand Prize Winner (Dominika P.):

Logan in the Dungeon, with the key

Honorable Mentions:
I’ll be sending each of you a Lightbringer bookplate! (Click to enlarge — for some reason with the larger files you’ll need to click and then click again.)

So what do you think? Did we get it right or did we mess up? Let us know over in poll –> and we’ll send a special prize to the fan favorite. (We’ll close that poll for voting purposes next Monday.)


Many thanks to the friends and fans who sent us their pictures, posted them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter under #BrokenEyeTour! There were so many awesome photos, it was hard to choose just a few to post here, but here’s a selection (including some of the selfies Brent took on tour…). We also have a few lucky winners and will be sending them their complimentary t-shirts shortly!

Seattle, University Bookstore


San Francisco, Borderlands

New York Times Best Seller


I won’t lie. When The Blinding Knife hit The New York Times Bestseller List at #11, I was super excited — but I was also like, “Dang! So close to the top 10!”

So this time around I was really hoping to sneak in at maybe #9. As you can see above, you guys blew the doors off. Thank you so much to my fans and to Orbit Books for making this happen!
