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.

I am a huge fan of Brandon Sanderson. His "Mistborn" books are seriously well written, wonderful entertainment and a joy to read.
Similarly, "The Way of Kings" is an epic tale, told with a fine eye for highly original detail, good strong and well drawn characters, wonderful story telling, a host of plots and a scope to rival George R R Martin's "A Song of Ice And Fire" sequence. Powerful stuff and recommended unreservedly. Brandon Sanderson is at the top of his game.
Imagine my frustration and annoyance then, having finished 'Archive Book One' and eagerly picking up the very much smaller "Book Two", only to find myself reading the same book all over again but in a much reduced form. Thumbing through chapter after chapter in a fruitless search for some fresh material that I hadn't already just read.
Disappointment doesn't begin to describe it. The publishers presentation of this second book gives every impression that this is the follow up. It is not. The lack of any kind of indication on the cover is, to put it politely, regrettable.
If you have bought the first book, a very large and heavy tome, then you will have read the entire offering, do not buy this book as you will be wasting your money.
However, I still can't wait for the "real" book two and I am 'fascinated' to know what Brandon Sanderson and his publishers will actually call it.
