The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Wow, what a beginning! This book is a time investment, but it's good. Really good.
We are following 4 main characters: Szeth, Kaladin, Shallan and Dalinar; seemingly unrelated characters whose lives come together over the course of the story. Sanderson builds a large, complex world full of military strategy, magic, and morality tales, and one not easily forgotten.
My favorite storyline is Kaladin, by far. He's a flawed, everyman hero who usually does the right thing. He is my favorite kind of character, and the reason I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Stick with the confusing web of characters and stories at the beginning, and you will be glad you took the journey. Good stuff.
