Summary of the Book
Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.
It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for Shardblades. Wars were fought for them, and won by them.
Reviews of The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Original, beautiful, and most excellent. I don’t remember why I added this to my reading list, but I’m incredibly grateful that I did. I usually read a review or three before starting a new book, going all the way back to when only print books were available and reading the blurbs led me to all kinds of new and interesting stories. I’m pretty sure I’ve read some of Mr. Sanderson’ work before, but without reviewing his body of work, I’m unable to tell you what or even how I felt about it. But this is one of the best, if not the best, books I’ve read in the last 30 years. I’m almost afraid to pick up the next one in the series as I have work to do and don’t know if I’ll be able to get it done knowing that more of this world is available to unfold before my eyes. I don’t think I’ve rated more than four or five books at five stars, but I had no hesitation here. (by Randall Carver, amazon.com)
