The Dragonsteel series is an unpublished 7-book cosmere work by Brandon Sanderson.[Citation needed]

Written as part of Brandon Sanderson's Masters Thesis when working towards a Master's in Creative Writing. One copy is currently held in the Harold B Lee Library at Brigham Young University.

Brandon has stated that it was not his best work. He plans to rewrite and publish them after the completion of The Stormlight Archive.[1]

It is set on Yolen several hundred years after the events of The Liar of Partinel.[Citation needed]

Dragonsteel is an unpublished series set on the Shardworld Yolen. The first two books form a duology, with Hoid as a major character. They are preliminarily titled "The Liar of Partinel" and "The Lightweaver of Rens". The first one, and perhaps the second one as well are set before the Shattering of Adonalsium. Brandon will not show anyone these books, and I don't think he's even written them both. There are five more books that occur hundreds of years later, so not "directly" a series, but still the same world. These five are the core Dragonsteel sequence, the first of which Brandon wrote for his master's thesis at BYU. It is still in the library there. Many things have changed since then, so this book is no longer canon.
