Publisher Description

An instant #1 New York Times Bestseller and a USA Today and Indie Bestseller!

The Stormlight Archive saga continues in Rhythm of War, the eagerly awaited sequel to Brandon Sanderson's #1
New York Times bestselling Oathbringer, from an epic fantasy writer at the top of his game.

After forming a coalition of human resistance against the enemy invasion, Dalinar Kholin and his Knights Radiant have spent a year fighting a protracted, brutal war. Neither side has gained an advantage, and the threat of a betrayal by Dalinar’s crafty ally Taravangian looms over every strategic move.

Now, as new technological discoveries by Navani Kholin’s scholars begin to change the face of the war, the enemy prepares a bold and dangerous operation. The arms race that follows will challenge the very core of the Radiant ideals, and potentially reveal the secrets of the ancient tower that was once the heart of their strength.

At the same time that Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with his changing role within the Knights Radiant, his Windrunners face their own problem: As more and more deadly enemy Fused awaken to wage war, no more honorspren are willing to bond with humans to increase the number of Radiants. Adolin and Shallan must lead the coalition’s envoy to the honorspren stronghold of Lasting Integrity and either convince the spren to join the cause against the evil god Odium, or personally face the storm of failure.

The twists and turns through this book were amazing and we got to see some of the best character development I have yet to see from an author.

Overly long, but it has good parts

Parts of the book were great, but the middle thousand pages of this book are long and boring, making this the weakest entry of the series. If you have come this far in the Stormlight archive, you’ll have to get through this book, so here are some tips if you’re struggling:

It is safe to skip all of the Venli / Eshonai flashbacks. They just repeat information from the earlier books with virtually nothing new. There are a lot of these chapters, and they interrupt the more interesting parts, so skipping them will make the pace much better.

Part one, two, and five contain 99% of the story (and are very good), while the middle two parts are mostly repetitive filler. If you’re in parts 3 and 4, and a chapter is dragging on (many of them do), it’s safe to skip ahead. You won’t miss anything that you can’t figure out from context later on.

When you’re done, visit the Coppermind website to read about any parts that confused you. You can even get a quick summary of every chapter, which will fill in anything that you missed skipping the boring middle of the book (but don’t worry, it won’t be much).

Good luck, and fingers crossed for a more consistent book 5!

Best stories I’ve ever read in my entire life. Simple as that.
