Having banished the demon released from its prison by his defeated nemesis Ravenkind, Gavin Kinshield faces new challenges: a magical barrage by Ravenkind's grieving mother and an age-old mystery whose time has come to be revealed.
A former member of an elite battlers' guild, Cirang Deathsblade has a dark past. She sits in gaol, awaiting the new king's sentence for her terrible crimes... but she's not who he thinks she is.
In exchange for leniency, Cirang leads Gavin to a centuries-old, hidden journal that holds the secrets of ancient kings and a magical wellspring with its own dark past... and an even more terrible future.

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.

Dozens have been corrupted by tainted water from the Well of the Damned, including King Gavin Kinshield's beloved wife. He's desperate to reverse the water's effects and restore Feanna to the kind and compassionate woman he married.
And what of his helpless heir growing in her toxic womb? To save his unborn son, Gavin must find a solution before the darkness that’s overtaken Feanna also stamps out the tiny spark within her.
Help seems to appear in the unlikely form of the Guardians, two ghostly figures tethered to the crystal that lies deep within the wellspring. Can Gavin trust them... or will their own agenda take the lives of his wife and son—and bring on the utter destruction of the seven realms?
Book 1 of The Kinshield Saga
Warrant knight Gavin Kinshield is a man of many secrets. All he really wants is a letter written two hundred years ago by his ancestor Ronor Kinshield, the last person to see King Arek alive... a letter he must earn by tracking down a common thief.
But when Gavin saves a woman's life, what should have been a simple task draws him face-to-face with his nightmarish past... and the truth of King Arek's demise.
Having unleashed the darkness inside her, Gatekeeper Jora Lanseri has chased the enemy from Serocia's shores. Now at the height of her power, she faces a new challenge---to rescue the abducted king and retrieve the stolen godheart before the war ship carrying them reaches harbor.
The rogue scribe Ibsa has escaped Jora's wrath aboard the fleeing ship and seeks to earn the prestigious title of Prime Maga. But she has what Jora wants. The only way to protect herself is to convince the god---by whatever means necessary---to slay the Gatekeeper. To her great fortune, among the ship's cargo is the god's crystal heart.
Can Jora rescue the king and save the god from unspeakable torment before the darkness inside consumes the last vestiges of her humanity?
Having rescued the king from their sworn enemy and freed the first Spirit Stone, an ancient dolphin trapped in stone for thousands of years, Gatekeeper Jora Lanseri wants nothing more than to take her long-lost brother home. But the king's sister, Princess Rivva, has been tried and convicted by the Empress of Arynd Ban of war crimes and sentenced to a life of servitude.
To secure Rivva's release, Jora and her friends visit the Isle of Shess, where delegates from four adversarial countries were set in gold during the failed attempt to create a sovereign nation. All their hopes for a peaceful end to the hostilities—and the return of Princess Rivva—rest on whether the delegates ate the death-forgiving godfruit before they were engilded. Delivering the delegates home alive would surely satisfy the vengeful Empress Svea.
Can Jora protect the king, rescue the princess and keep the monster inside her from destroying them all?

Condemned murderer—and now Gatekeeper—Jora Lanseri is offered a chance at redemption in exchange for her silence. Driven to protect her only remaining brother, she must covertly investigate the dark and hidden forces smuggling the life-giving godfruit to Serocia’s enemies and perpetuating the long and bloody war.
Aided by the dolphin Sundancer, Jora discovers more long-forgotten secrets of the Spirit Stones—including the ability to call the Colossus, the ancient warrior statues positioned around Jolver. But the Colossus warriors had fought against the previous Gatekeeper in the war known as The Great Reckoning. Can Jora convince them to join her struggle for peace and justice, or will they side with her nemesis and use her brother against her?
Gatekeeper and Minister of Truth Jora Lanseri has defeated the otherworldy monster sent to kill her, despite Dominee Ibsa's refusal to help. Jora must journey to the neighboring city to recover the stolen godheart and bring Ibsa back to face justice for betraying the queen. But when Jora returns to the capital, she finds powerful forces have converged with one goal in mind—to force the Gatekeeper to do their bidding.
