Format: Paperback
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)

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ms. R. K. M. Aylward on 30 Dec 2011
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.

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.
