The brand new epic fantasy series from international bestseller Brandon Sanderson. According to mythology mankind used to live in The Tranquiline Halls. Heaven. But then the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men. Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms. And the Voidbringers followed ... They came against man ten thousand times. To help them cope, the Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, known as Shardblades. Led by ten angelic Heralds and ten orders of knights known as Radiants, mankind finally won. Or so the legends say. Today, the only remnants of those supposed battles are the Shardblades, the possession of which makes a man nearly invincible on the battlefield. The entire world is at war with itself - and has been for centuries since the Radiants turned against mankind. Kings strive to win more Shardblades, each secretly wishing to be the one who will finally unite all of mankind under a single throne. On a world scoured down to the rock by terrifying hurricanes that blow through every few days is a young spearman, forced into the army of a Shardbearer, led to war against an enemy he doesn't understand and doesn't really want to fight. What happened deep in mankind's past? Why did the Radiants turn against mankind, and what happened to the magic they used to wield?… (mais)

I hate not finishing novels. That said, I'm not going to waste precious reading time on a book(and very lengthy series) that is this slow to start and seems to be a story about nothing in particular. And while I'm very well aware of the general concensus that sees this as the 'set-up' novel of a great rambling epic, I simply can't justify giving time to books that are written as a kind of over extended scene setter for the next 10 doorstoppers. This edition was the Part One of a two part first in the series of 10, and I find myself unable to force myself on after a mere 214 pages so I'm doing myself a favour and quitting now instead of ploughing ahead in the hope things improve.

It started well, reminding me a lot of the Mistborn trilogy with its strange magic and superhuman characters, but unlike Mistborn, it just slowed to a crawl and then almost stopped dead for hundreds of pages. Watching some unfortunate wretch running from place to place with a bridge and getting nowhere fast would actually be an apt description of this book thus far(214 pages). Unlike a lot of people, I'm not that forgiving of a novel(and a first novel at that) whose sole purpose it is to introduce the daily tedium of an unjustifiably tedious world. I've absolutely no doubt whatsoever that it will pick up from book 2 or maybe 3 or whatever, but that's simply no excuse for creating such tedium, nor for the apologist attitude towards an awful lot of epic fantasy these days that seems to enjoy nothing more than making the excuse that 'it's a set-up novel' so it's ok that it's boring. No... it's not ok. It really isn't.

Very tedious. Very plodding. Very pedestrian. And so not worth your time.

I want part 2 right now!!!!! ( )

I haven't read a fantasy novel in sometime and this one has sat on my "to read" pile for far too long.
I got it when I met Sanderson at Supanova Melbourne 3 years ago. I've only read the first Mistborn of his so it was a punt to buy both halves of this series and another book, but his line was empty and I felt sorry for him.
Boy did I win though. What a great read and a great concept. Power comes from gem stones and swords can be conjured out of thin air.
He has created a world that is both broken and fantastic, believable and full of mythology.
I had to start part 2 as soon as I finished part 1.
Note: some might say this is a little formulaic it does have similar themes to Mistborn but I like that he is created new worlds. Reminds me a lot of Modesitt's work. ( )

This book is epic in every sense of the word. It has different worlds, great characters that are both likeable and memorable, and a fantastic system of magical cultures. There are multiple layers that in less able hands would be muddled and confusing, but which Sanderson handles with ease. The premise is truly awe-inspiring, and promises much exciting action for the novels still to come.

The book's size means you have to dedicate serious reading-time to it, but the complexity of the plot needs this anyway. It is clear why the first in this trilogy is broken into two parts - and I already have part 2 so no waiting! ( )

I wasn't sure if I would like this book or not. I know a lot of people have raved about it but that's not always a good indicator. I read the first of Sanderson's Mistborn series and even though I really liked it there was nothing in it that made me want to continue.

This book does much better. The multiple characters with their own threads makes me want to know how it all connects. Where is it all leading. I was gripped from the beginning right through to the end and am kicking myself that I left part 2 at home. A truly epic beginning I hope this series can keep the quality up unlike other series which lost their way like The Sword of Truth, Wheel of Time and The Riftwar Saga. ( )
