Summer 2021 (May);

I had to read 4 book club books & several of my 36 Fiction/Non-Fiction Bingo Board Challenges ahead of schedule to be able to set aside most of May to devour (and be devoured) by this book. I loved everything about and I remain steadfastly agog that every one of the books in this series has ranked at five stars, while being over 1,000 pages. This series is better than anything in such a long, long time.

What do I even put here without throwing a billion spoilers into this place.

I love madly what was done with Shallan and the three-in-one situations, and even more my heart only grows even bigger for Adolin's acceptance of her wife no matter what shape, face, and place she happens to be in, only wanting to be her stalwart supporter. Kaladin remains a forever favorite and I absolutely trusted Sanderson with the arc he wrote through this book for him, the unexpected place he found himself in, found new people to protect, serve, and defend, as he began to focus on his own healing finally, too.

Also, Maya. I knew it was coming and predicted it from the beginning of the book. The one thing to turn the Honor Spren around as the greatest example of his greatest good & what that could mean for every bearer of a blade from the earlier wars. But. Oh god. It was so well done. And I didn't predict at all the scene in how it happened or what would happen, only the big picture, point person. It was so, so, so good.

Dalinar remains a force to be forever reckoned with, and I love these parallel's and striving that are all of everything between him and The Storm Father. Also, it can't go without saying, it was AMAZING to see Navini get to come into her own during this book in every way possible: learning of her ills, constant striving in the worst of situations, slowly growing the oddest of connections.

Everyone and Jasnah, everything Jasnah, including my flailing about the biggest new thing with Wit. Plus, gosh lets talk about how massively awesome it was to have so much more Wit in the book in one of our locations. I loved it so, so, so much. I, also, loved Jasnah's many ways of making it known she could be just as formidable as a queen as any man who was a king before her. How that both did her good and gave her experience that wounded a part of her (in the right way).

I just. Everything is amazing. Everything.

Everyone needs to be reading this series. Drop everything and do that. ( )

“Heroism is a myth you tell idealistic young people—specifically when you want them to go bleed for you. It got one of my sons killed and another taken from me. You can keep your heroism and return to me the lives of those wasted on foolish conflicts.”

Well dang. After the absolutely bonkersiosity of the first three Stormlight Archive books, I hadn't the slightest idea how Sanderson was going to pull off yet another (and another and another coming down the pipeline). And yet here we are.

One one hand, it somehow manages to be a 'smaller' book. You don't quite have the gigantic battles and epic, world changing revelations of the previous books. Instead, you get a much more focused look, dealing more directly with some very broken people or battles on much smaller scales (the Tower city of Urithiru). And that's not at all a bad thing. It's absolutely fascinating to see how Kaladin and Shallan (in particular) are broken. Some of that--I've dealt with it. Let's just say that Sanderson did an almost painfully good job at times. And there's one scene in particular near the end of the series. He always has the best lines.

On another hand, this book has by far the most worldbuilding/universe building I think we've seen yet in a cosmere novel. We learn more about the nature of Magic on Roshar, but also some pretty crazy implications for other worlds as well. There are whole chapters of SCIENCE in there that I can absolutely guarantee (because I've seen it) that people are going to love or hate. But me--I loved them. It's one of the things I love most about Sanderson's work and in this, he delivered.

Both of these make this a bit of a slower book and at over 1200 pages... that's kind of painful. But at this point, I don't think this is the book that's going to make or break the series for you. If you've made it this far, you'll read it and I hope love it as I did. But now, even with Sanderson's prolific release schedule... we have to wait. ONWARD!


"And … what happened to your shoes?”

Shallan glanced at her bare feet, which poked out from under her dress. “They were impeding my ability to think.”

“Your…” Adolin ran a hand through his delightfully messy hair, blond speckled with black. “Love, you’re deliciously weird sometimes.”

“The rest of the time, I’m just tastelessly weird.” She held up the carafe. “Drink. It’s for science.”

He frowned, but tried a sip, then grimaced. “What is it?” she asked.

“Shin ‘wine.’ They have no idea how to ferment a proper alcohol. They make it all out of the same strange little berry.”


I really do like Shallan. :D ( )

It's Sanderson. So good, compelling story, great magical systems, fascinating stuff.

But this one didn't work for me as well as many have. A number of characters spending a lot of time in their own heads, and dilly dallying basically for the author's convenience in letting a few people die but not too many and tying threads together at the right time.

And you need to know about the cosmere to make sense of a LOT of things in this book. Like, a LOT. This is the first time where I would say you really need something like the coppermind site to make sense out of one of his stories.

And a few of the things that happened in the story bothered me just by their sheer improbability. ( )

First of all this is a weird book. Oathbringer went in fifty different directions at once, but it has nothing on this. Sadly, I think that this is the fist Stormlight book where I caught the author's tricks.

Some of the plot developments were so, so predictable. Some of them were extremely poplar fan theories. Only one major, and two minor plot developments surprised me.

Kaladin's story was the absolute worst in this regard, and as my favourite character that hurts me. You could fuse together the scripts of five hundred mediocre tumblr fanfictions written even before Oathbringer came out and that Kaladin's character development would be just about the same as this ones.

Navani has a similar deal. There's also several Cosmere references, but nothing you couldn't have seen coming by keeping abreast of the latest (aside form some names).

Honestly what this book does best is setting up for the next one.

Still 4/5 for all the reasons I espoused in my Oathbrigner review. No book sniffs at the level of worldbuilding this series has, and that scratches such a particular itch for me.

2023 Stones Unhallowed when???? ( )
