The Way of Kings doesn't just raise the curtain on Brandon Sanderson's new Stormlight Machine epic; it immerses us in the personalities of three disparate main characters who will dominate its drama. They could scarcely be more different: One, the vision-plagued brother of an assassinated king; another, a highborn young man brought low; and the third, a brilliant, yet naïve young woman intent on fulfilling a seemingly impossible mission.
