“The Way of Kings”
by Adam Huddleston
I realize most book reviews are written after a reader has finished the work, but I wanted to let you know a little bit about the novel that I am currently reading.
“The Way of Kings”, by Brandon Sanderson, is an epic fantasy novel. It is the first in his “Stormlight Archive” series. At the moment, I am only a quarter or so of the way through, but I can tell that this is going to be a massive story. The overall plot is told through the experiences of a multitude of main characters, each with their own motivations and colorful back-stories. The book includes several maps of the fantasy world as well as artwork created by one of the main characters.
If you are a fan of epic fantasy, or of Brandon Sanderson (whose works include the last few “The Wheel of Time” books and the “Mistborn” series), I highly recommend “The Way of Kings”. I can’t wait to see where the story goes!
I think you’re the one who told me about Brandon’s podcast, “Writing Excuses”. It is fantastic, but I’ve never read one of his books. I will have to give this a go. Thanks!
