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.

    Amazing, just like every single book I’ve ever red by him
  • Tedious

    By timellis74
    Moved slowly with no reward at the end unlike the previous books in this series that were also slow. Characters like the god swap at the end are boring and incredibly tedious which is unlike previous Sanderson books. Looks like I won’t be buying book 5 which is the first Sanderson novel I won’t read. Will have to rethink any future novels in other series as well as the invisible hand of the Cosmere isn’t interesting but quite boring.

    It’s only been a day since i’ve finished it so I’ll need some time to think about it but I think this might be my favorite Stormlight book. King Sanderson did that. 👏🏻

    Storms. I read this book in 3 days. It’s incredible of course, but you already know that - it’s book 4 of the Stormlight Archive! Jump in!

    It would be so much more enjoyable if the e-book would download.
