The Way of Kings is epic in every sense. Sanderson has built a world that leaps to life, a cast of varied characters and a vast history that slowly unfolds. While Sanderson cuts from the familiar cloth of fantasy, his narrative impetus and meticulous world building bode well for future volumes.
Sanderson is an evil genius
The best part...is the compelling, complex story of Dalinar, Kaladin, and Shallan as they struggle though emotional, physical, and moral challenges. Fans and lovers of epic fantasy...will eagerly await the next volume
Sanderson has created a fascinating world here, one that deserves a sequel
No one has more fun writing or is better at describing galactic dogfights.... Read the first one for fun or enjoy the second on its own
It's rare for a fiction writer to have much understanding of how leadership works and how love really takes root in the human heart. Sanderson is astonishingly wise
I loved this book. What else is there to say?
