I’m again amazed at how Brandon Sanderson can balance world building with an exciting story. I don’t say that because I’ve become blindly invested in the characters either. Soul crushing lows, dizzying highs, adventure, all await in this fantastic installment. Seeing shallan & kaladin grow as people is as exciting as watching them evolve as radiants. A worthy reading investment for sure.
Felt very much like a “middle” book. Started a little slower than the first, but picked up quick. Definitely had some great twists and turns. A couple favorite quotes:
- For light and life.
- The force will provide. The force will guide.
An exciting kickoff for the series. Lots of sensational space fighting and force magic to keep the pace fast. Big fan of the fantastic villains. I hope some of the characters (Burryaga & Bell) make it back for later installments. A couple of my favorite quotes:
- “Being a Jedi was not about saving oneself. It was about saving others.”
- When someone was lost, you found them.
