Brandon Sanderson’s The Way Of Kings is perhaps my favorite book from Sanderson yet. It was intriguing from beginning to end and left me wanting more. The Way Of Kings takes place in a world known as Roshar. Where powerful storms sweep across the last regularly and everyone is after ancient artifacts that cut the very soul of whom it wounds, and another that makes any man into a near indestructible warrior. These Shardblades and shardplates, relics from the ancient order called the Knights Radiant, are what kingdoms are traded for.
This story follows Dalinar Kholin; a leader of one of ten different armies that make up the kingdom, as he becomes interested in a text that his deceased brother (who was the king) began reading, called The Way of Kings; Kaladin, who chose to become a soldier to protect his brother rather than stay with his medical apprenticeship and now finds himself a slave; and finally Shallan, whom seeks to become the ward of renowned scholar Jasnah Kholin for shady reasons. This is a must read that I highly recommend.
