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.

He has now released book three, Oathbringer, and my husband finished his massive listen of the entire Wheel of Time series and ...

A grand sweeping story with lots of great characters, amazing action detailed throughout and another great new magic system created for this ...
