“Heroism is a myth you tell idealistic young people—specifically when you want them to go bleed for you. It got one of my sons killed and another taken from me. You can keep your heroism and return to me the lives of those wasted on foolish conflicts.”

Well dang. After the absolutely bonkersiosity of the first three Stormlight Archive books, I hadn't the slightest idea how Sanderson was going to pull off yet another (and another and another coming down the pipeline). And yet here we are.

One one hand, it somehow manages to be a 'smaller' book. You don't quite have the gigantic battles and epic, world changing revelations of the previous books. Instead, you get a much more focused look, dealing more directly with some very broken people or battles on much smaller scales (the Tower city of Urithiru). And that's not at all a bad thing. It's absolutely fascinating to see how Kaladin and Shallan (in particular) are broken. Some of that--I've dealt with it. Let's just say that Sanderson did an almost painfully good job at times. And there's one scene in particular near the end of the series. He always has the best lines.

On another hand, this book has by far the most worldbuilding/universe building I think we've seen yet in a cosmere novel. We learn more about the nature of Magic on Roshar, but also some pretty crazy implications for other worlds as well. There are whole chapters of SCIENCE in there that I can absolutely guarantee (because I've seen it) that people are going to love or hate. But me--I loved them. It's one of the things I love most about Sanderson's work and in this, he delivered.

Both of these make this a bit of a slower book and at over 1200 pages... that's kind of painful. But at this point, I don't think this is the book that's going to make or break the series for you. If you've made it this far, you'll read it and I hope love it as I did. But now, even with Sanderson's prolific release schedule... we have to wait. ONWARD!


"And … what happened to your shoes?”

Shallan glanced at her bare feet, which poked out from under her dress. “They were impeding my ability to think.”

“Your…” Adolin ran a hand through his delightfully messy hair, blond speckled with black. “Love, you’re deliciously weird sometimes.”

“The rest of the time, I’m just tastelessly weird.” She held up the carafe. “Drink. It’s for science.”

He frowned, but tried a sip, then grimaced. “What is it?” she asked.

“Shin ‘wine.’ They have no idea how to ferment a proper alcohol. They make it all out of the same strange little berry.”


I really do like Shallan. :D ( )

Favorite book of the year. Can’t wait for #5. ( )

It's Sanderson. So good, compelling story, great magical systems, fascinating stuff.

But this one didn't work for me as well as many have. A number of characters spending a lot of time in their own heads, and dilly dallying basically for the author's convenience in letting a few people die but not too many and tying threads together at the right time.

And you need to know about the cosmere to make sense of a LOT of things in this book. Like, a LOT. This is the first time where I would say you really need something like the coppermind site to make sense out of one of his stories.

And a few of the things that happened in the story bothered me just by their sheer improbability. ( )

First of all this is a weird book. Oathbringer went in fifty different directions at once, but it has nothing on this. Sadly, I think that this is the fist Stormlight book where I caught the author's tricks.

Some of the plot developments were so, so predictable. Some of them were extremely poplar fan theories. Only one major, and two minor plot developments surprised me.

Kaladin's story was the absolute worst in this regard, and as my favourite character that hurts me. You could fuse together the scripts of five hundred mediocre tumblr fanfictions written even before Oathbringer came out and that Kaladin's character development would be just about the same as this ones.

Navani has a similar deal. There's also several Cosmere references, but nothing you couldn't have seen coming by keeping abreast of the latest (aside form some names).

Honestly what this book does best is setting up for the next one.

Still 4/5 for all the reasons I espoused in my Oathbrigner review. No book sniffs at the level of worldbuilding this series has, and that scratches such a particular itch for me.

2023 Stones Unhallowed when???? ( )

Over 1200 pages and even MORE plot twists and revelations as usual - with every new information revealed, new questions came up. But I don’t really mind, because this only means we’re in for a long ride and I trust BranSan. How can you not when he had the final of this epic book up his sleeve all those years and managed to execute them perfectly!
Yes, there were slow parts to this book.
Yes, it coule have been told with fewer words
Yes, there are parts that are a bit repetitive and that overlap with viewpoints from early books
But those all help to create an incredible, satisfying story with a huge eye for small details, different interpretations and versions of the events that took place, seen and experienced from different characters! I lived every second of it and can’t wait to see what part 5 will bring!
And the cosmere tie-ins that are becoming more and more important are just so much fun! ( )
