About this ebook

The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together—and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past—even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

A true masterpiece, Sanderson's "Stormlight Archive" has whisked away my soul. I feel a better person for having read it, and am looking forward to exploring the rest of his Cosmere. As a world-builder and character developer both, this author has far and above exceeded my expectations. Needless to say, I highly recommend you read these writings. Thanks Sanderson.

Anticipation spren quickly turn to disappointment spren.. This book is bad, far worse than the previous . I have to say I'm done with the series, Sanderson will take forever to finish the next one and I barely survived rereading the second one, there is no way I'll survive rereading this one!! This book is bad!! Very bad.. When Kaladin throws a pity party it's interesting , he had a rough life.. when Shallin and Dalinar do it, and they do if often it's just spoiled rich kids whining. That's not why this book is awful tho, it's awful because it turned gravity defying chases, rooms turning on their heads, and back again epic battles into Peter pan flying around with tinkerbell on his shoulder.. oh look at me I can fly?!! It's even less cool because all the Lost boys can fly too now? Dying no longer matters in this universe and all the heroes are practically immortal now so who cares? Sanderson should stick to one and done. AS MUCH AS I ENJOYED MISTBORN TRILOGY book 1 was the best and the next two we're great only by it's illuminating light. I have read the way of the king's about 5 times now I absolutely love it, but I'm done with this series. This book left me completely uninterested into who's going to throw the next pity party or return from the grave. So sad to see such a great start flop so badly!!! *Tears..

Loved book 1. Liked book 2. Book 3. . ugh not so much. Somehow he made me dislike all my favorite characters from the first 2 books, in fact now I don't really like any characters. the whole story drags on really slowly. I guess they can't all be great, I hope the next one is better
