Oh just keep reading! Much will be revealed in the early parts of this book compared to all the set of a new world in 1. I told you you'd be in for a treat since you wanted a Jas pov!

34 chapters, that is two parts, into the Words of Radiance.

Firstly the prologue was really interesting. Jasnah was suspicious of Elhokar's wife?

Secondly the Shallan arc:

Jasnah's death was a real shocker. Did not see that coming. (Is she actually dead? Probably)

The increasing flashbacks from Shallan are very interesting, but not as interesting as Kaladins were.

I caught Tyn was the one in charge of the ship job as soon as she mentioned the job to the south.

Shallan getting Kaladin to take his boots of were hilarious.

So she is a radiant with a Shardblade? As in she manifested one, straight out? I am guessing she killed her mother accidentally and her father took the blame. He probably saw her as a future asset.


The Kaladin arc:

More than Kaladin, its Syl's development I am loving.

Laughed my head off at Kaladin and the horse episode. Also Renarin fallng on his head repeatedly.

So the Assasin in White comes, but Kaladin manages to drive him off. Apparently a shardblade wound can be healed.

I am guessing Szeth is going to go through some turmoil type change now.

But the big reveal of the book so far is the Eshonai PoV. Gods? Are they the true voidbringers? Those forms..... very interesting....especially the smokeform.

Killed the king because of what he was going to do The gemhearts? The Chasmfiends? Exploration? Something they would have found?


That shoemaker and his references to the One? Adonalsium and his shards?

Also the two entities in the storm seemed mutually opposed.

The countdown can't be to the apocalyptic everstorm, can it? I mean if its that short a time t the apocalypse where are going to squeeze in 8 books?

Probably misreading it, or it gets averted somehow. Like Odium chooses a Champion maybe?

Kaladin is going to end up with a shardblade isn't he?

Personally I would have put that post in a spoiler tag until the thread OP had finished the book, though luckily you've only included a few spoilers!
Hello, soldiers, look at your mage, now back to me, now back at your mage, now back to me. Sadly, he isn’t me, but if he stopped being an unascended mortal and switched to Sole Spice, he could smell like he’s me. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in a warren with the High Mage your cadre mage could smell like. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s an acorn with two gates to that realm you love. Look again, the acorn is now otataral. Anything is possible when your mage smells like Sole Spice and not a Bole brother. I’m on a quorl.

Was that a Spoiler for the end of Words of Radiance? No sweat. D'rek came in before I read it. Timezone difference saves the dayPosted Image

Guess its my fault really. Named it a Spoilers revealed thread after all, without specifying that the spoilers come as I read like in my WoT thread.

Then why did Shallan get a brain-damaged doormat?


:sofa:

This series became a must buy on release day for me after book 2.

58 chapters and the first interlude of Part 4 done.

Damn Kaladin blew it big time. Guess he forgot the king was not Dalinar. This is irritating as I was loving his development and wanted him in another big fight.

Rocks narration of his peoples history is very interesting. Cosmere for sure. The caldera pools reminded me of the pools in Elantris.

Shallan is getting to be a more and more engaging POV. Pattern is surpisingly useful.

Also Lift in the interlude is hilarious.

Thats all I can write tonight. More tomorrow.

Lift is the undisputed best thing in bk 2.

Pattern gets smarter as he goes so his 2nd appearance is better then his 1st. He was dumb then.

Kaladin pisses me off in this bk compared to how cool he was in bk 1 and the opposite can be said of Shallan from 1 to 2

Now, in more detail:

Kaladin doesn't really make the bes tof things as he did in book 1. He lets his visceral disliek of everything lighteyed get him into trouble and skew his perspective.

Shallan really impressed me. She metamorphosed from a poor little lost girl intoa seriosu badass. Getting the deserters to join her took guts. Her bits with Adolin are cute but also very amusing, injecting some much needed humour. The flashbacks are also playing a major role in building up her character.

The big reveal I think was the death of her brother at Amaram's hand. Now she has got a big reason to hate him. Though if I read it right, Kaladon was the actual killer. So if she ever finds out, sparks will fly.

All the info about the Knights Radiant is probably pretty significant, but I didn't really understand it all.

This being a Sanderson book, I am keeping my eyes open for betrayals. Except fo rthe obvious Moash one, I am also wary of Lopen and his cousins. They could be infiltrating Bridge 4. Also Selabrial be be too good to be true.

Who is Darkness? Cosmere? I think I should know him

Oh yea him. I posted about him in the other thread. You can read it after your done.

Ed: I still have yet to see if I was right about it or not. I honestly forgot about it after this long. I ll need to look it up.

Yeah, Kaladin is a tad bit prejudice. :D

yeah i agree with everything apart from the first point. really the best thing? i dont think we see enough of her to have a huge impact on me and the book. she was a good source of humour and if she became a main character i think she would quickly become a well liked character. may i ask why shes the best thing? im curious.
