Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Words of Radiance, Book Two of the Stormlight Archive, continues the immersive fantasy epic that The Way of Kings began.

Expected by his enemies to die the miserable death of a military slave, Kaladin survived to be given command of the royal bodyguards, a controversial first for a low-status darkeyes. Now he must protect the king and Dalinar from every common peril as well as the distinctly uncommon threat of the Assassin, all while secretly struggling to master remarkable new powers that are somehow linked to his honorspren, Syl.

The Assassin, Szeth, is active again, murdering rulers all over the world of Roshar, using his baffling powers to thwart every bodyguard and elude all pursuers. Among his prime targets is Highprince Dalinar, widely considered the power behind the Alethi throne. His leading role in the war would seem reason enough, but the Assassin's master has much deeper motives.

Brilliant but troubled Shallan strives along a parallel path. Despite being broken in ways she refuses to acknowledge, she bears a terrible burden: to somehow prevent the return of the legendary Voidbringers and the civilization-ending Desolation that will follow. The secrets she needs can be found at the Read More chevron_right

   Potentially the best series ever
As long as Sanderson doesn't beef this series down the line-I don't think he has a known previous offenses--The Stormlight Archives has the potential to be the BEST fantasy series I ever read. I'm super excited to see where this goes. This series could be even better than WoT, and while I love the story line and every aspect of WoT, I do know that the last three books, co-written by Sanderson, were the easiest to read, and so if Sanderson is capable of having the vision to pull a thirteen book series, this series could be even better than WoT. I was skeptical with all the spren stuff in this series, but once I got used to this new world, I was hooked and by the end of the book, I was all-in. This second book is AWESOME and I couldn 't put it down. I can 't wait for the next one to come out! I can 't wait for the next one to come out!
   Brilliant, epic, funny and all that other cool stuff
In the second book of the Stormlight archive, all the characters have risen and are fighting to save the world. Old are the usual epics in Sanderson's best writing style. Despite the story being very epic and about changing and saving the world as it is known, the characters are still very human with all their flaws. One thing I love about Sanderson's writing is the development of characters. He does not drag books through same dilemmas. The things that cause anxiety and a book are resolved by the book's end. At the same time, many new challenges and dilemmas are presented to set for a next book, but they are the new ones and are something to look forward to.
   Fascinating world, compelling characters.
Feel like he could go on for many more volumes, this seems like just a part of an amazing universe of stories. The main characters are dark and compelling and often irritating pig-headed and veering like all the rest of us into the complex and compelling side. But they are made of the greater things and become heroes as the story advances. These will be one of those series that I start to read more slowly and more slowly, fearing the end. Brandon! Keep writing, Brandon!
   Always go the extra dollar for the trade paperback size
Bought was given to Bought as a Father's Day gift and this book is impressive. So worth the small price difference from the mass market paperback! My husband finds them so attractive that they are on the mantel instead of the bookshelf and he has never done this! Beautiful and sure will make for fewer spine creases on this larger size with a couple hundred fewer pages. Can 't say enough how nice the books in trade paperback size look. Like them more than hardcovers too.
   Good but not great
Way too much focus on Shallan, who is both incredibly wittyfunny and not at all boring like they try to make her. Unfortunately, she takes more of the book than the actual awesome characters. While I enjoyed the stormlight series, I can 't help, but often annoyed at what seems like an artificially extended story to accommodate the number of books that this series is supposed to be. It often carries unnecessarily and feels like the book could have been cut in half, which would have made for a much more exhilarating experience.
