Oathbringer
Oathbringer | Brandon Sanderson
The eagerly awaited sequel to the #1 New York Times bestselling Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game. In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance. Dalinar Kholins Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified. Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinars blood-soaked past and stand togetherand unless Dalinar himself can confront that pasteven the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

The best book series I have ever in read. Probably not a popular opinion but I would say that it‘s better than ASOIAF (game of thrones). The third book in “The Stormlight Archive” now I can‘t wait for book four.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Such a great series! While I love Got I do think it's overrated and would have to agree that Stormlight is better. 👍 3w

“Oathbringer” was my favorite book yet in the Stormlight Archive series. As we learned more about the history of Roshar and its inhabitants, bits of dialogue and seemingly minor events from the earlier books meshed together to create a full cohesive narrative. A true masterpiece in world building and character studies!

A special thank you to @Branwen who has been buddy reading this series with me! I can‘t wait to read the next book with you! 😊

TheLibrarian My husband really likes Brandon Sanderson but the book size kind of intimidates me. 2mo
DaveGreen7777 @TheLibrarian Yeah, I get that! It‘s such a commitment to start a book that size! 😳 2mo
vivastory @TheLibrarian I haven't started the Stormlight series yet, but if you want to check out Sanderson I recommend the first mistborn trilogy. If I recall correctly none of them were over 600 pages. 2mo

TheLibrarian @vivastory Thank you!! I have checked out The Reckoners series which I enjoyed but that‘s probably a bit different than his other series. 2mo
Branwen I so very much love buddy reading these books together! It's so amazing, fantastic, epic, and fun to experience this world together! 😊💕 I'm still kind of emotional about it and super sad the book is over! 😢 2mo

Last night I had some plans get canceled at the last minute, which was fine with me, since it gave me a night in and some extra reading time! 😊 I finished Part Four of “Oathbringer” last night. If you‘ve read either of the other books in the series, you know things usually look really bleak for our heroes by the the end of Part Four... this book was no exception! 😱

Tagging the wonderful @Branwen who has been buddy reading this series with me!

I‘m FINALLY FREE! Brandon Sanderson is a master of the slow roll. I was bored for the first 600 pages (50%) of this tome, but then it got exciting. The man sucks at writing most of a story, but is excellent at writing the ending. This means, by the time I finish it, I‘m excited and have largely forgotten how annoyed I am by the writing style and length. Seriously, I could‘ve read at least 4 books in the time it took me to read this one.

Is it possible to own too many copies of the same book? 🤔

I originally had the mass market paperback editions of the first two Stormlight books. However, there was talk that Oathbringer wouldn‘t have a mass market version, so I got the larger edition. Since I need my books to match, I got the larger editions of the first two as well. Shortly after, it was announced Oathbringer WOULD get a mass market edition after all, which I now have! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Megabooks This is completely understandable! Sometimes we just need multiple copies and to have things match! I often own the audiobook and a print copy! 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Megabooks Glad to know it‘s not just me who does this! 😁 3mo
Melissa_J It drives me bonkers when publishers change the size and cover style of books in a series! Like you, I want them to be all the same size. They don‘t look right on the bookshelf otherwise. (edited) 3mo
See All 31 Comments
DaveGreen7777 @Melissa_J Exactly! They did this with the Harry Dresden urban fantasy series, the later books are taller than the earlier ones, so they look odd on my shelf now! It drives me bananas! 😩 3mo
TheLibrarian I did the same thing so you are not alone! 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa Been there, definitely have done that. Loved a series I read in high school, see a hardback of it at a sale, I have to pick it up even though I still have my well loved paperback. See one with a great cover, better than the edition I have at home, I pick it up. And this particularly drives me crazy...The Dresden Files is one, Kate Daniels, and so many more that change mid-series...I think because the series got more popular, but as a lover... 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa ... of both the stories and how they ecstatically look on my shelves it is very frustration. 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @TheLibrarian Thank you! 😊 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I feel your pain, I have the mismatched Harry Dresden books as well! 😩 Granted, they reprinted the earlier books in the taller editions, so I could get a matching set, but I so prefer the original covers to the later ones (which are pretty much just pictures of Harry with very little variety from book to book)! 😔 3mo
DGRachel One of my favorite fantasy series is only published in trade paper in the US, but the UK gets hard backs and trade paper with a totally different, equally gorgeous, cover. It wouldn‘t have been an issue, except the author surprised me with a personal inscription on a U.K. hardcover of the first book, so now I order two copies when a new book comes out - the US one to read and the U.K. hardcover to complete the set. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️ 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @DGRachel I completely understand! I often get both the Kindle version and a paperback when I start reading the book, since I can highlight in the Kindle version but still like to have a physical copy to switch to at times! 🤦🏻‍♂️ 3mo
OnlyYoo I‘m the same way. I like all of my copies to match! 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DaveGreen7777 Yes! Cover changes! Another book lover pet peeve! 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @OnlyYoo Glad it‘s not just me! 😂 3mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @DaveGreen7777 oh yes! I have some on ebook, print, and/or audio for just the same reason, I can switch around, highlight, put on my shelf, etc. I wish they‘d sell them like movies...with a Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download all in one set. 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I love that movie analogy! How convenient would it be to get multiple versions with one purchase?‘ 😱 3mo
DGRachel @DaveGreen7777 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa Yes! Multiple format bundles would be awesome! I, too, have some books in hard cover, paperback, ebook, and audiobook. (I may have a problem 😆 ) 3mo
Smrloomis This means you‘re always prepared for guests who drop by and want to read these at the exact same time you‘re reading them??? 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Smrloomis BWAH-HA-HA!!! I love that rationale! 😂😂😂 3mo
Smrloomis @DaveGreen7777 😂😂😂 3mo
Branwen I love everything about this picture! 😁👍 And to answer your question-YES IT IS PERFECTLY NORMAL TO DO THIS! I own multiple copies of The Wheel of Time series; the ebook versions, the gorgeous new cover paperback reprints, and even the 'awful-wtf is this artwork-is this even real' mass market paperback versions! 🤣😂 3mo
Branwen I also have multiple copies of the game of thrones series as well! My mom got me the mass market paperback editions forever ago for my birthday, and when I read them I loved them so much I went out and bought the hardcovers too! 😍📚💕 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen BWAH-HA-HA, I‘m with you on the WTF artwork on the Wheel of Time mass market paperbacks! 😂 The series fits snugly on my bookshelf in that format, but those covers are atrocious! Rand looks like a caveman, Moiraine looks like she‘s about three feet tall (she‘s petite, but not THAT petite), and the scenes depicted are usually boring besides. The ONLY thing I‘ll praise about them is the artist got the clothing right, like Rand‘s jacket. 3mo
vivastory I won't read my signed editions, so I have a few duplicates. I also have a few editions (ie anniversary edition of Name of the Wind) that aren't signed but are just too nice to read so I get a mass market reading copy. Speaking of Wheel of Time,Tor is reissuing the mass market in box sets of 3 & 4 at a time beginning this October with good cover art. I'm planning on reading them as they publish each set. I think each set will be pub 2 months apart 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @vivastory If they reissue the WOT mass market paperbacks with the cover art they used for the online versions, I will definitely be getting those! 👍 3mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 *DIES LAUGHING* You are SO right! Rand does look like a caveman! The worst cover, in my opinion, is the one for The Shadow Rising-it looks like some weird western book! 😂🤣 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Hee hee! 😜 The Shadow Rising was exactly the cover I was thinking of when I mentioned boring scenes depicted. One of the most action packed books in the series, and the cover just shows Rand and Mat lounging around while Egwene serves food. Not only is the cover dull, but it has sexist overtones, and it‘s wildly inaccurate, considering Egwene and Rand were in different parts of the world the whole book! Did the artist even read the book? 3mo
BooknerdsLife OMGOSH YES! I feel your pain! 😆😅It bugs me when publishers decided to change the size or cover mid way through the series! 🙈 WHY? 😫 I also love to have both the physical and kindle copies of the same book too🤗 Kindle for travelling, out & about & physical copies for home & when I feel like sniffing the pages 🤣 3mo
DaveGreen7777 @BooknerdsLife BWAH-HA-HA! I keep physical copies of books for exactly the same reason! 😁 Rory Gilmore was right, “Now smell the books! Nothing else smells like that!” 🤣 3mo
BooknerdsLife @DaveGreen7777 🤣🤣🤣👏🏼👏🏼 IKR! “Nothing, nothing smells like that!” 😆Love Gilmore Girls!!!! 📚👍🏼 3mo

All the stars for this book (and the series thus far). My favorite fantasy series and it‘s not even halfway done, but I have no doubts that Sanderson will deliver. I love the complexity of the characters, the depth of the world, and the substance of the action. Now, how do I follow this up?

While I love giant epic novels, since I‘m a rather slow reader, sometimes I get frustrated with myself over how long it takes me to get through the whole thing. 😩 But now that I‘m almost 800 pages into this one, I‘ve gotten so far I can‘t help but feel a sense of accomplishment! 😊

It was time to retire my old Kindle. 😔 It kept restarting while I was reading and sometimes even skip to the end of the book when I‘d turn the page (good thing I‘m not reading a mystery right now).

I got this Kindle Oasis. I love the soft nightlight it has for reading in the dark (when I really should be going to bed but want to get in one more chapter). And the day setting is so crisp and clear. Plus I got this beautiful burgundy case, too! 😍

Melissa_J Enjoy! I got an Oasis (with the same cover 😊) a few months back before they introduced the version with the soft lighting 😢. The night lighting makes a huge difference for me when reading in bed - I have a Kobo Forma which does have the soft lighting so it‘s what I use when reading at night. My Oasis is only used for non-night reading situations. 5mo
Buechersuechtling Congratulations‼️ This looks really nice. I think in no time you‘ll be wondering how you could ever have lived and read without an e-reader that has a night-and-day-mode. 😊 (Well, at least I‘m sure I would …) Enjoy‼️ 5mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This booooook!!!! It is so long. But it‘s the only long book I ever wanted to be longer. I don‘t know why I had it in my mind that this was the end of the Stormlight Archive, but I did. So when I realized the book wouldn‘t wrap up, that the ending was still only another beginning...ahhhhh! Read them all. Or better yet, dedicate a year to listen to the all on audiobook.

80% into Oathbringer and I just can‘t seem to put it down! Kinda started reading Enders game on a whim the other night while I was commuting since it was on my phone and I didn‘t have my kindle on me. I could tell that I‘m gonna like it already. I‘m also reading meet me in outer space by Melinda Grace s l o w l y. Yup, I‘m one of those people who read multiple books at the same time.

I‘m so glad to have discovered #Litsy and I cannot wait to blurb about all my reads. I‘m currently reading Oathbringer (book 3 of Stormlight Archive) by Brandon Sanderson and I‘m really loving it. I‘m so completely enthralled by Sanderson‘s world building and this series is already one of my top favorite fantasy series. 🥳

curiousaurus @tpixie thanks so much. 😊 8mo
curiousaurus @LoverofLit oh my god it‘s so good. But you should read warbreaker before you read oathbringer. And probably edgedancer as well! 8mo
LoverofLit Oh my gosh I had no idea those two existed until you said that and I hopped on the Google train! Thank you so much! 8mo
curiousaurus @LoverofLit All of Sanderson‘s short novellas are in the arcanum unbounded. Please get it 😁 8mo

Little tidbit of information about me... I LOVE maps in books! 😀

My appreciation with maps began with R.A. Salvatore‘s “The Crimson Shadow” series. As the protagonists travelled a linear path throughout the story, I would pinpoint where they were on the map as I read along, it made me feel more connected to the book‘s world. Does anybody else follow along on book‘s maps as well?

Special thank you to @Branwen for the beautiful homemade bookmark!

BookNAround I love maps. Like an unopened book, they contain such possibilities. 9mo
DaveGreen7777 Very well said, @BookNAround 😀 9mo
Leniverse Absolutely. Ever since the Hobbit when I was quite young. I‘m a bit disappointed every time a book doesn‘t contain a map! 9mo

Branwen YES! I am obsessed with maps in fantasy books! Every time I crack open a new book and see a map it makes me smile! 😄💕📚 Also, you're welcome! I'm so glad you like them! Let me know if you ever need more, I made a ton of them! 😁 9mo
DaveGreen7777 @Leniverse I agree! Whenever I pick up a fantasy novel, one of the first things I look for is a map! 🗺 9mo
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Glad to know I‘m not alone in this, Becky! 😁 Of course, following along on maps are a little tricker in some series like the one we‘re currently buddy reading, where Oathgates and alternate dimensions like Shadesmar are involved! 😉 9mo
Branwen @DaveGreen7777 Hahaha! So true, my friend! 🤣 9mo

Guys I loved this book. (Though is that any surprise?)
It got a little slow in the middle but man oh man did it pick up in the last two parts!
Loved the side plots and I am so pleased with the ending!

DaveGreen7777 I just realized that St. Patrick‘s Day is a Sunday, so in addition to reading, I‘ll be spending part of it buddy-watching Star Trek with @Branwen! I‘ll take that over a pub crawl any day, even St. Patrick‘s Day! 😁🍀🖖 9mo

So the Libby app has finally given me a copy of Oathbringer that I can read on my kindle! *squees softly in the distance*.
Let‘s just say I get distracted by social media and Fanfiction while trying to read ebooks on my phone 😅😓.

TiffanyMichele These characters all need some serious therapy y‘all. 😓🤦🏼‍♀️ #stillenjoyingitthough (edited) 9mo

If you want a short story, do not attempt this series or this book. If you are prepared for read (or commit 55 hours via audiobook) an intensely described world where various complex and angsty characters gain different ranges of super powers who all struggle with the effects of war, self doubt, being influenced by external forces and revelations which challenge established political/social view of honour, read this fun and long book.

TrishB This was my least fav in the series! 9mo
AiBBot @TrishB I agree with you. There was ALOT of inner turmoil and angst. It felt exhausting and frustrating to read those parts but that was probably the effect he was going for. 9mo
TrishB I‘ll probably still read next one, but thought this one was a slog... 9mo

Just... one more chapter!

We‘ve all done this, right?! It‘s getting later and later, the need for sleep is getting overwhelming, but we try to keep reading anyway! Even though we‘re so tired, we probably won‘t even remember what we just read by tomorrow.

Think how much more reading we could get done if it wasn‘t for that pesky need for sleep! 😴 Maybe if I turn on the audiobook version as I go to bed, I can still retain some of the story? 🤪

Branwen *DIES LAUGHING* This is sooooo accurate! 😀 I want to stay up all night and read books! 💕📚 10mo
DaveGreen7777 HA HA! @Branwen I knew you and I would be on the same page on this one! 😂📚 10mo
Deifio I know what you mean! And Sandersons books are way too good to waste your time on sleep! 😉 9mo
DaveGreen7777 HA HA! I totally agree, @Deifio 😁 9mo

Mehso-so

I have really enjoyed this series though this book was different. I was annoyed by the changes in the characters, not all of them but really I just wanted more from before. I know that is a me issue but it was a long book to endure change I didn't want. It was exciting but long.

TrishB I didn‘t enjoy this one either- though I loved the rest of the series 🤷‍♀️ 10mo

#LitsyPartyOfOne - Final Score

7 pages again this quarter, which ends this game in a tie, 15-15!
Batgirl the librarian is happy about this. She says, “Who cares what the score was? The true winner in this game is literacy! Thank you to @Ambrosnazzy and @MrBook for promoting reading with this wonderful Super Bowl alternative!”
Supergirl is a little less philosophical about it... “But I wanted to WIN!!!” 🤣

#LitsyPartyOfOne - 3rd quarter

If Supergirl looks a little angry with me, it‘s because the score dropped a little this quarter! 😳 Only 7 pages read this time, making the current score 15-8
“One more page?! You couldn‘t read just one more page?!” Supergirl is saying! Come to think of it, I say that to myself anytime I have to put a book down... “Just one more page!!!” 🤣

MrBook 😂👏🏻🙌🏻🍻 10mo
