    The Way of Kings

    A well developed and over-all well written story that suffers only from too concerted an effort to be "epic". The book would be greatly enhanced if only it did not chop and change between characters so frequently and instead allowed the reader to become more deeply invested in their story before moving to another character. Indeed if the book were simply restructured to combine three or four of each character's chapters into a single story element, without changing a word of what is written, then it would have a less manic nature and significantly improve the story. That being said, the ending comes together very well, sets up nicely for the sequel and I am sufficiently engaged to read the second book.

    Terrific fantasy

    This book is long. Very long. But its just terrific. It can drag a bit here and there but once the story is moving it just keeps getting better. Highly recommend.

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Brandon Sanderson is incredibly creative in the word he builds, one that is in so many ways completely different from the standards of fantasy we've come to expect. If you're looking for a thrilling, intricate, unexpected world to explore, this series is for you.

    The Way of Kings

    I started this book with the intention of finding something to pass the time in waiting for the next book in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series. Now I have a new favourite author and series of novels to look forward to! This book certainly exceeded my expectations. It is definitely one of the best modern fantasy novels, and, if Sanderson plays his cards right, "The Stormlight Archive" can -- rather, WILL -- go down in history as one of fantasy's greats. Interestingly dimensional characters, a creative world, and a stellar plot are just some of the book's many features. An absolute must read for any sci-fi / fantasy lovers. 4.7/5.
