This review is from: The Way of Kings Part One: The Stormlight Archive Book One: 1 (Paperback)
To be succinct. Simply one of the BEST fantasy novels or this generation and a very good contender for all time!
This is by far Brandon sanderson's best work yet! Each character is fleshed out intricately and with utmost care. The world building and magic systems employed is original and immersive. You follow 3 main story lines all interwoven and connected via some means or another. For the first book in the series, this does a good job laying down the foundations and leaving the reader hungry for more as Sanderson brings about plots and twists some of which are predictable, whilst some will most certainly take you by surprise. However, unlike the game of thrones series, a lot of the main characters tend to stay alive a tad too much, and with good reason that eventually explains itself later on in the book. Nonetheless a spectacular read. Highly recommend!
