That was amazing. I'm still confused about all of the orders. What does he mean I wasn't sure which one you'd be? When he said she was an edge dancer. Does that mean each spren has two orders bound to it?

Also, I love how Mistborn is supposed to be three sets of trilogies, and then he just starts adding in more books, unrelated from the actual intended story.

And how it's not even his main series. It's a side of the cosmere.

My copy was waiting for me when I got home, so was the one a friend ordered, now I have to choose between finishing my current book and starting this one early. The book itself is just as massive as the last couple of WOT books, and even is thicker than lord of chaos.

I think that all Epics can gift their powers, most just choose to use it for themselves. Since you can clearly stop using your powers long enough to realize what they do to you, it does put the blame pretty squarely onto the Epics. Also, given that the rest of the book isn't particularly subtle about it's foreshadowing, I'm guessing that Megan's theory about why they were given powers is correct.

Speaking of Steelheart, the actual number of Epics is bugging me. In the beginning, the Professor mentions there are thousands of Epics in Chicago alone. The guy they target at the start was supposed to be mid-level in Steelheart's empire, not even part of his inner circle. We're even introduced to two minor nobody Epics near the start, who are much weaker than the big ones. But then every single one of them drops into a plot hole and is never seen again. Mitosis seems to imply there literally aren't any Epics left in Chicago, so I suppose Sanderson just forgot about the whole thing.

Although that sort of just ties back into my bigger criticism of Steelheart; most of the book feels weirdly small and empty, despite taking place entirely in a giant crowded city and a lot of it in a bunch of cramped underground tunnels.

What was her theory again?

Holy poo poo, I just read this. A Sanderson book with nudity? And ready world cursing? And an awesome blend of something I can't even talk about because it would spoil stuff? This is going to rival Emporer's Soul as my favorite novella of his.

Just finish reading Bands of Mourning when it comes out before you come in here, there was that one inconsiderate poster that didn't spoiler tag the big reveal in the last chapter of Shadows of Self before it was out even a week. I pity everybody who saw that before finishing the book.

What do you consider a spoiler? Why would it need its own thread when this thread isn't that heavily active to begin with?


My guess is if not Harmony then a shard such as Compassion would do so, though by all accounts Honor was that balancing factor and Odium destroyed him just as Ruin killed Preservation but failed to shatter Preservation.

I mean a Sanderson spoiler free thread and a spoiler thread. There is a lot of content out now and he's going to keep churning out 4+ books a year. It gets pretty active around a new book

Book 9's climax is one of the best in the series. Books 7 and 8 likewise have important and exciting chapters. All three thus have something in the way of redeeming features.

Book 10, though, can just gently caress right off. Nothing of value happens in the book.

Book 11 is good, and Sanderson's final three are also fine.

Does book 10 have Mat in it? If so that one was ok imo

So it's A good surge and a bad surge? Does this mean we will get 19 orders?
