The Way of Kings
The Way of Kings | Brandon Sanderson
In The Way of Kings, #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson introduces readers to the fascinating world of Roshar, a world of stone and storms.It has been centuries since the fall of the Knights Radiant, but their mystical swords and armor remain, transforming ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for them. Wars are fought for them and won by them.One such war rages on the Shattered Plains where Kaladin, son of a surgeon, has been reduced to slavery, and Dalinar, commander of the armies, is plagued by dreams of ancient times, doubting his own sanity.Across the ocean, Shallan, a nave but brave and brilliant young woman, plans a daring theft to save her impoverished noble house from ruin.The result of over ten years of planning, writing, and world-building, The Way of Kings is Book 1 of The Stormlight Archive, an epic fantasy masterpiece in the making. THE STORMLIGHT ARCHIVEBook 1: The Way of KingsBook 2: Words of Radiance

Thank you for this #LittensWantToKnow @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks 😁

I would love to see Brandon Sanderson‘s “Stormlight Archive” on either the big or small screen. With weapons and armor made of glowing metal, magic giving people the ability to fly or craft illusions, and fairy-like spren manifesting for all sorts of emotions and elements, this would be breathtaking to see in a visual medium! 🤩 Something tells me @Branwen will back me up on this!

Yeah, just sum up and review the longest novel you've ever read in 450 characters, they said. It'll be easy, they said.

It's really freaking good, but I'm very glad I'd already read four other cosmere books and spent two months reading this one instead of trying to brute-force my way through. It's a read that rewards time.

Read this one because my adult son & daughter-in-law really like it. I don‘t usually like fantasy books, but this is an exception for me. It is LONG, but I found it engaging. Will need to catch my breath before delving into the next in the series, but plan on reading it. I switched between the audiobook and kindle version. The narration of the audiobook is very good.

So, I‘m a day late with my wrap up post because……well…..I didn‘t realize May had ended. A lot of stuff happened in May, but it still felt like it flew by. But it was a good reading month. I finally feel like I‘m out of my slump. Plus, I read a lot of books that I enjoyed. I don‘t think I gave anything less that four stars. But The Way of Kings stole the show. It‘s a new favorite for sure.

Did you find a new favorite this month?

Started reading this after hearing so many people rave about the stormlight archive series. It‘s really good so far, just a lot of mechanics to take in and learn about, that‘s why I‘m utilizing the stormlight archive wiki as I read to learn things.

I finally finished this beast of a book, and I loved it! I didn‘t love Dalinar or Adolin‘s points of view at first, but Shallan and Kaladin kept me interested enough to keep going. By the end, I was hooked by the whole story. And in true Sanderson fashion the ending was epic. It took some time to get through this one, but it was totally worth the effort.

Full cast with intense sound effects, this sinks you into the Stormlight world fully. As with the print edition, I love the worldbuilding, which really comes to the forefront in this edition, and the well-developed characters. The battle descriptions were a bit too much for me in the print version; however, the added sound effects mediated that and I found it quite gripping. All and all, the best possible way to experience this particular book.

Hello Litsy! It‘s been awhile. I only have two reading goals this year, one of which is to finally read Brandon Sanderson‘s Stormlight series. I am currently about 650 pages through book 1! My second goal is to read 10 books-a much lower number than my usual but I plan to tackle a lot of very big books this year.

🎧📚 4 main characters that have their own chapters.

Kaladin. Good guy wrongly branded a slave. He becomes bridge 4‘s leader. He has Syl to help him. (Read & find out)

Shallan - the most room to grow, starts out a thief, her desires change.

Dalinar! My favorite character.

Szeth, king killer. Where will the truthless lead us?

10-ish strong supporting characters.

It‘s epic. It might take you awhile to get into it but it‘s worth it!

I absolutely adored this beast of a book. I loved the multi point of views. Kaladin is my favorite character and my heart broke for him multiple times. The world building and the characters were great. This is a masterpiece and now one of my favorite fantasy series ever.
#bookstagram #bibliophile #litsy #littens

Angitron I started dipping my toes into this, but my library loan ran out before I barely began. I‘m a bit hesitant to continue because A) I‘m not a huge high fantasy fan, and B) It‘s one big honking book, but it gets such great reviews, I may go back to it. Your review is pushing me towards continuing! 1y
The_Heeler_Booklife @Angitron that‘s a bummer that it ran out. Yeah, these books are really chunky. I definitely recommend it. It‘s not super duper fantasy in this book. You do have like a spirit that talks to Kaladin and he can do things. Then, the soulcasting is another thing. Then, the visions. That‘s really all. I‘m a huge fan of fantasy though. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think. 😊 1y

I could not stop listening to this book, it was so good. I finished it in 2 days, I lived with my headphones in that entire time. I tried this book years ago and just wasn‘t that into it then, I‘m glad I gave it another go. The world is so big and fascinating and the characters are interesting. Kalidan was by far my favorite with Dalinar close behind. I‘m getting some other reading done before I jump into book 2 but it‘s definitely happening.

The Stormlight Archives has been on my radar for years. At 1,000 pgs I hoped the 1st book was worth it. It takes a bit to get into the rhythm of the novel. The story rotates between POVs & there's a lot of battle scenes, which were tiresome, but I loved the character development. As it went on I began to see the connections & the main characters became interesting. Halfway through I wasn‘t sure I loved it, but by the end I couldn't put it down.
