The Way of Kings

Recommended Posts

So, yeah, I had a working system. Posted it. Next morning, some random person randomly throws out "what if the Orders of the Knights Radiant can be divided into three groups?" (in an unrelated thread, it should be noted)

 

I think about it for a few minutes. I have a good look at my explanation for Surgebinding. Yup. They can. And I made some mistakes. *goes off to work on the system some more*

You're like a Sanderson super fan. :smile:

 

I started Way of Kings for the reread. I will be pressed to get them both done in time for Oathbreaker. I might have to listen outside of work in order to get them done, but that's okay.

My parents got Oathbringer two weeks early... Originally, I wasn't really planning on visiting them this weekend.

 

Now, I'm going there as soon as I can. Let's see if I can read the whole book in one weekend (though otherwise I'm taking it with me, kidnapping it if needed).

 

Also, the Theory of Identity is my first own Cosmere theory (except my within-one-day-outdated Surgebinding theory). Now working on a revisitation of Surgebinding, though I'm also kinda trying to hold off on it as I saw someone reference to "every Surge being part of a pair" and I want to know why he considers them such.

Your theory is over my head, Leyrann, but good luck with it!

 

I have no hope of finishing my reread before Oathbringer comes out. I am only on part two of Way of Kings. :sad:

Mwahaha we got it early. I've already read it. It's the best book I've ever read, no book even comes close. That includes A Memory of Light.

Well, I finished it in under a week (had to actually go to work and be a responsible adult for most of that time).

There was one particular point that had me literally sit up straight and exclaim aloud "OH $@#% YEAH!!!!!!" :unsure:

Great book.  I had to pop onto 17th Shard for the first time in about 4 years to lurk in some of the discussion threads.  And then proceeded to do a full reread of all 3 Stormlight Archive books.  And then start back at Mistborn 1 just for grins.  I wanted to read Bands of Mourning before I get to Arcanum Unbounded (because I was told there would be spoilers).

You are on the 17th Shard? What's your username?

By the way, I wrote this post-Oathbringer scene that people might like. Contains Oathbringer spoilers (obviously):

Songstress.  (Same as it is here, although with the DM9 update my display name changed, as did several others.)  I posted there last in January of 2012. :unsure:  Guess I can't manage to stay active on more than one forum at a time. :laugh:

That explains why I didn't see you around... Did you see me though? I was quite active, mostly the two weeks after release.

Also I'm gonna try to balance three forums now. :)

Oh absolutely.  As soon as I hopped on the Oathbringer spoiler forum, I spotted you.

I've been lurking quietly, reading a lot but not comfortable offering opinions just now.  

I may start posting there again after I finish my Mistborn series reread + Bands of Mourning + Arcanum though.  Maybe.

I have way too many books to read right now.

All 3 of the Stormlight Archive, all 6 of the Mistborn books, and 3 more in the Death Gate cycle by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

Just found my favorite line in "The Way of Kings" right now: page  275 in the paperback version "Sadeas flushed, but kept his temper. 'A whore joke, Wit? Is that the best you can manage?' Wit shrugged. ' I point out truths when I see them, Bright-lord Sadeas. Each man has his place. Mine is to make insults. Yours is to be in-sluts.'"

 

I laughed out loud when I read this.

Oathbringer was outstanding! I thought it drug for quite awhile once they

 

went to Kholinar,

 but it wasn't that bad, and the ending was epic. I can't wait for the next one!

Don't know if I did the spoilers right.

 

 

What I wanted to happen in Words of Radiance actually did. Kaladin fought Szeth.

    • There is no doubt, Moraine sees the whole world as her people, not for them to serve her, but for her to serve them, a true Aes Sedai.  That said, I see no need to paper over her secrecy, need to know attitude, threats to the boys and girls. She developed into a wise person before jumping into the Elfin world with both feet. Her development is interesting, but the story isn’t about her. I would say Nynaeve is the glue over the whole arc of the story.
    • Lily, sending positive thoughts!!    DJ and Lady!!! You are back!!   Hi, Cross!
    • Hi!!!!   I’m glad everyone is back!!!
    • I thoroughly agree with Artemia1. Moraine is the female character I most admire in all of English language fiction. She is mature, wise, just, graceful, beautiful, petite, well dressed and everything most fictional characters want to be, and never using her beauty for leverage and never self ambitious. There are too many sexualised female characters in some media forms particularly film. I believe her treatment of Lan is chaste and respectful and regard for his life continuing after hers and having a future with Nynaeve shows maturity and caring. Moraine runs away from a throne to devote her life to seeking and guiding the Dragon Reborn, which looking back at the last 6-7 thousand years of human history shows a rare quality.
