This is not a book review but a warning. I have read this author's previous work so bought The Way of Kings & TWoK book2 at the same time. Only to discover I had bought the whole of the book and a separate book comprising of the 2nd half of the book also. I wrongly assumed that book 2 was a follow on book, it is not. I accept I have made a dumb mistake and the cost is minimal but, i hope this prevents anyone else repeating it. In short buy part 1 and part 2 collectively or the whole book independantly.
(The book is fab though and well worth the extra regardless, another triumph by Mr Sanderson)

Format: Paperback
I read a lot of fantasy and sci-fi books - in fact, any which come my way, and rarely find something which doesn't already seem familiar to other authors I've read. Rarely do I come across an author who managed to find a new 'hook' to lift their books above the ordinary; equally rarely do I come across one with such strong regard for the written word.

The two-part book "The Way of Kings" comprises the first in a new series, and for me was impossible to put down. It is beautifully written, and each character is sufficiently in-depth to paint a real picture of them while keeping a slight air of mystery. I found myself completely oblivious to the outside world; in fact my partner had to call me three times for dinner as I was so caught-up in the magnificent world he has created and peopled.

I would not recommend these books for someone looking to read a few pages each day for a month or two as I feel the beautifully crafted storylines would lose some of their greatness over such a period of time; instead wait for a rainy day and devote yourself to them as they're really worth it. I was given these as a gift for Christmas, and sat down to read them yesterday. I'm now avidly awaiting the next in the series!

A masterpiece of the genre, I cannot rate this highly enough.

Really enjoyed the book - pure escapism from the dull life of work.

Although i did think this was the final book when its not so waiting for the next book.

This might be hands down one of my greatest book purchases to date, Sanderson, James Barclay and Brent Weeks are my current favourite authors and im loving the scope, beauty and diversity of this book (as part 1 and 2 are only split due to its size)

One of the greatest original fantasies ive ever read, and im looking forward to seeing what Sanderson does with the world of great things he has created!

I had already read the first volume in this new series by Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings Book One, so I was pleased to see this for sale as a used copy, so I could get to the end of the story so far. I would say that it was really "as new" and certainly a bit better than expected. The impression was that someone had read it just once. Recommended seller, for that reason.

The titles are very confusing as this is the 2nd book, but part of book 1. Words of Radiance: The Stormlight Archive Book Two: is actually the 3rd book in this series.
The Way of Kings has some very different and new ideas, and the story is told well, which is why I have bought the next book in the series. It is going to be set over 10 volumes, but doesn't say how many books.

I read this book once and then read it again. This book is the best I have ever read. The characters draw you in you can not help but to like them. The harsh and cruel world is described beautifully and you get a clear picture in your mind. Truly amazing and I am looking forward to reading it again.

guys you seriously can't think this was a money making scheme. i'd rather say you should pay closer attention to what you buy! due to the length, the first half was released - obviously - before part two was released. for most people, it makes more sense to just buy the complete books. for those, however, who started with PART one, it is an opportunity to only buy part two. i didn't compare prizes, but one part is certainly less expensive than the whole book, thus giving you a chance not to pay too much. if you paid attention.

the book, however, is very good! i grew curious for sanderson's stories after reading his wheel of time books. i was not disappointed.
