  • Dissappointing preamble for sequel

    Sped through previlus books in series, but this one was too disjointed, long winded, with random interludes and too many flashbacks, and an ending compressed into under 50 pages of the 2000+ page novel.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A strong 4th act

    The Stormlight Archive is up there as my favourite book series. Despite being so long each book seems to fly by. This one has much more in common with Words of Radiance in that despite it's length not much of the story really happens in it. Lots is set up for the next novel, but that's fine, because lots and lots of character development happens. If you've liked that last few books, keep reading. If not don't!

  • A worthy 4th part for SA

    "Rhythm of War", the fourth installment of Brandon Sandersons "the Stormlight Archive", proved to be a more than worthy successor to it's predecesors. After having read it - admittedly in probably a few too little days for someone who has other commitments besides "wanting to read a book from time to time" - I have to say it's up there, competing with "Words of Radiance" for the second place in "my list of favourite installments in the Stormlight Archive so far", after, obviously, "the Way of Kings". Just like in "the Way of Kings", the marvel of this book lies in it's worldbuilding aspect, though unable to compeat with the prementioned first part in the series, as one can't be as stunned by the world of shardblades, highstorms, Radiants and spren when reintroduced compared to the first time these marvels of the Cosmere are revealed to them. In fact, the world of Roshar feels now surprisingly familiar to a reader of the previous books. Yet, Sanderson still had more than enough worldbuilding-goodies siting in his kitchen cabinet, as in "the Rhythm of War" the reader can still get stunned by new reveals about the strange and mysterious world of Shadesmar, the secrets of Urithiru, and the abilities of the different orders of Radiants. Likewise, the arcs of certain characters proof to be less advanced than one ignorantly might have assumed. In terms of storyline, the main course of the story is a long arc of suspense concerning Urithiru. This is served with a side of an important quest into Shadesmar. The wine accompannying this dish of a book is, as always, a look into the past of one of the main characters, in this case Venli (and her sister Eshonai). It is here that I must voice (see what I did there?) my only real point of critique. Though it is in this book were Venli gets a more important role, as a real main character, her role in the first big chunck of the book was still relatively small and focused mostly on other characters. Especially her "background chapters" took a long time to make an appearance. I have to admit feeling frustrated at times why a book where Venli was supposed to be the "focus character" contained so litte Venli. Though I have to remark the amount of times she appears and the import of her role follow a crescendo toward the books final. Still, despite this minor point of critique, Brandon Sanderson truely delivered a new materpiece into a series that already deserves to be considered among the greatest works of fantasy ever written. Yet again he showed his great mastery of the arts of storytelling and worldbuilding, with amasingly realistic characters, a world full of marvels and unforseen plot twists. "Rhythm of War" reinforces exactly why "the Stormlight Archive" is a must read for any fantasy loving fellow. _________ More information I bought this book as an e-book for 8,99 EUR. I consider this book being well worth it's money. I did not buy the audiobook. I read this book in English, although not being a native English speaker. My native language is Flemish. I was able to read this book whithout much difficulty. (Though I recently learned I have been pronouncing some words wrong, like "chasm" and "Tranquiline Halls"). I have not received any University Grade education into the English language. I finished this book after 48 hours.
