This book may be good or bad, I have no idea, but the description of it on wikipedia makes it sound loving hilarious:

quote:

The world of The Way of Kings is one constantly assaulted by hurricanes.[3] Flora and fauna have evolved to cope with this condition.[3]

Oh okay, kind of interesting.

quote:

In response to an attack by malignant entities (known as Voidbringers),[3] the "Almighty" fashions magical weapons and suits of armor, called Shardblades[3].

Uh oh.

quote:

The "Almighty" equips knights, known as Radiants, with these Shardblades,[3] and, eventually, the Radiants defeat these evil Voidbringers.[3]

Hahahahaha.

quote:

Then, for unknown reasons, the Radiants turn against mankind and begin fighting over the remaining Shardblades.[3]

Shartblade.

quote:

The book begins at a phase where warlords have, for many years, been gathering armies around Shardblade wielding fighters.[3] These armies fight over possession of the remaining Shardblades,[3] in an attempt to acquire enough for a decisive advantage.

Sounds like a videogame I would play.

quote:

Sanderson describes the plot specific to The Way of Kings on the Barnes and Noble forums:

The book follows a young spearman forced into the army of a Shardbearer, led to war against an enemy he doesn't understand and doesn't really want to fight. It will deal with the truth of what happened deep in mankind's past. Why did the Radiants turn against mankind, and what happened to the magic they used to wield?[3]

I wonder if he'll wield the mystical shartblade?
