The story takes place in the world of Roshar, a world ravaged by constant storms that shape the landscape and the lives of its inhabitants. The novel follows three main characters: Kaladin, a former soldier turned slave; Shallan, a noblewoman seeking to become a scholar; and Dalinar, a high prince struggling with his own inner demons.
As the characters’ stories intertwine, they each uncover different pieces of a larger mystery involving the history of their world and the forces that seek to destroy it. The novel is full of complex characters, rich world-building, and epic action scenes that keep readers on the edge of their seats.
One of the standout aspects of The Way of Kings is Sanderson’s intricate magic system, which is based on the use of gemstones and is woven seamlessly into the fabric of the story. The world-building in the novel is also incredibly detailed, with unique cultures, religions, and histories that make Roshar feel like a living, breathing place.
Another strength of the book is Sanderson’s writing style, which is both accessible and poetic. He has a talent for crafting descriptive prose that captures the beauty and danger of his world without ever becoming bogged down in unnecessary detail.
Overall, The Way of Kings is a must-read for fans of epic fantasy. It is a masterful work of storytelling that introduces readers to a richly imagined world full of memorable characters and epic conflicts. With two more books in the series already published and several more planned, readers can look forward to many more adventures in the world of Roshar.
