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
