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 soiless 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.One such war rages on a ruined landscape called the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin, who traded his medical apprenticeship for a spear to protect his little brother, has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where ten armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.

4.0 The Way of Kings
This was a really fun read and the only criticism that I can offer is I felt that he could have closed a few more plot points raised in the story than he did. A grand sweeping story with lots of great characters, amazing action detailed throughout and another great new magic system created for this ...

4.0 Now I get it
Mistborn was pretty good, but I didn't get extremely excited about it. This, however, was so much better. I feel like I finally understand why people are so impressed with Brandon Sanderson. I wasn't sure about this when I read the prologue. It was just very surreal and confusing, but once I go...

4.5
It had been a long time since I'd indulged in a nice long fantasy book just for pleasure--a long time since I'd been able to focus on a long book--so it says a lot this held me. I'd heard that Sanderson was completing the Wheel of Time series. I never got through the first book of that series, which...
