The best book l have ever read. There are so many twists & turns that you never see coming! lt is all fictional but still good. & ln my opinion it is way better than Stephen King!

Rating: 5 Hard to imagine a better book

       The Way of Kings follows multiple characters from several different backgrounds all of which relate back to the ongoing war somehow.   Shallan is a young noblewoman whose house is about to go bankrupt. To prevent this she plans on stealing the king's sister's soulcaster and use it to create several rock quarries on her land. Her love of books and uncanny ability to draw allows her to become the king's sister's apprentice and from their she begins to see a world far beyond any petty problems her house might have.  Kaladin is an powerfull warrior who was sold into slavery for his crimes. After several attempted escapes he is sent to the armies on the shattered planes to be bait for enemy archers.  Dalinar is second in command to the king and is the onlyone of the 10 high princes that attempts to follow the ancient codes of honor. He is seen as weak for doing so but he must unite the high princes against those who killed his brother.  I would highly recommend The Way of Kings to everyone. I believe it is the best epic fantasy since Lord of the Rings.

 In the back of their mind, everyone who sits down to write a book wants to pen the next epic saga.  Most books don’t make it.  ‘The Way of Kings’ is an exception.   From the moment I opened it, I was amazed.  Brandon Sanderson has succeeded in drawing from the great authors without copying their plots and themes.  Roshar is its own.  It is a reader’s pleasure to view a world through the eyes of characters so resolved who embody (or are learning to embody) the word ‘noble.’  Rich themes lie under an equally rich plot line, weaving one of the best tales I have ever read.  Having finished it, I can only say that I wait eagerly for the next installment of the Archive.

           This is an extremely well written complex fantasy. It features a multitude of well developed characters through adventures, hardships, hope and despair. The character don't know it but their destinies are tied together and also tied to the fate of the world . Sanderson's ideas of magic are original and interesting
