  • The best in epic fantasy

    by on

    Sure, we had to wait a little while Sanderson finished off Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, but this long-awaited sequel to The Way of Kings does not disappoint.

    Brandon Sanderson is arguably the best epic fantasy author writing today, and this is a fine example of his craft.

  • Epic fantasy at its best

    This second book (of a planned 10) in the Stormlight Archive was some time coming due to Sanderson's commitment to finish Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, but it is definitely worth the wait. With wonderful worldbuilding and fantastic characters Sanderson truly is Jordan's heir. Epic fantasy at its best.

    The last fighting scene in The Way of Kings (the first book of the series) left me so hyped up, I have been waiting for the sequel of this series ever since

    Words of Radiance does not disappoint. I kept on trying to tell myself to slow down, to enjoy it slowly ... nope! I got a neck pain (and back pain, and eye pain) from finishing the book in 3 days. But it is so totally worth it.

    Brandon Sanderson is one of my favourite-st (i know, I know, there is no such word .. indulge me, that is how much I love him) author ever.
