I just can't---1200 pages!!! How do I even review that?! Seriously?!




Ok, so the beginning was tough, I did give up once. I read the last book 3 years ago, I could not remember anything. But then I braved it again and dove in (cos no, I am not re'reading every book every 3rd year.) And sure, there were things I was not sure of but it was still a thrilling ride.




Then I read the review of book 3, ha, there too I had the same questions. Like why are Shallan 3 people? How does the magic work? But he is just so damn good so it all works.




This was also the book of depression and ptsd.




Adolin is a right sweetheart.

Omg Kaladin, my heart.




These books are great, but yeah, maybe wait until they are all out cos else you will wait years in between books and forget it all. But then again then you will have to wait like 30 years






After forming a coalition of human resistance against the enemy invasion, Dalinar Kholin and his Knights Radiant have spent a year fighting a protracted, brutal war. Neither side has gained an advantage.




Now, as new technological discoveries begin to change the face of the war, the enemy prepares a bold and dangerous operation. The arms race that follows will challenge the very core of the Radiant ideals, and potentially reveal the secrets of the ancient tower that was once the heart of their strength.



At the same time that Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with his changing role within the Knights Radiant, his Windrunners face their own problem: As more and more deadly enemy Fused awaken to wage war, no more honorspren are willing to bond with humans to increase the number of Radiants. Adolin and Shallan must lead the coalition’s envoy to the honorspren stronghold of Lasting Integrity and either convince the spren to join the cause against the evil god Odium, or personally face the storm of failure
