The Way of Kings (The Stormlight Archive, #1)The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This is by far one of the most epic of Epics I've read. I loved the new ideas on magic, beings (lots of insect based things) and supernatural. Great sweeping political themes. And it isn't until the last few chapters the reader even knows what the big epic "bad" is. That is around 1600 pages (on my iPad) of slow build. I'm gonna be very sad (in a Rothfuss way) when I finish book 2. I love how important women are in this setting also. Now I just hope for a few gays to show up.

Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive, #2)Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The center of the book drug on and I had started to worry that Sanderson had lost his touch, but the end (last 1/3) was "on the edge of my seat" reading. Lots of action, tons of plot and secrets reveals, and people dying that I really was upset to see die. But many of them were only "mostly dead", it seems. Their come back making me very happy and wanting to read more. I'm trying not to be too upset that there is no indication at all when book three will come out. I'll just try and fill the void with some of his other series.
