First, this is my theory that I formed before I read Oathbringer:

Adolin will fall. Either he will be exiled and find different paths, or he will go over to the dark side.

Reasons: Adolin will lose everything. All the people he considered his inferiors - bridgemen, his invalid brother, even his female fiancee are Radiants. He is not. Secondly, there is a strong chance that Kaladin and Shallan will kindle something serious. This will cause jealousy and strife. Thirdly, when his murder of Sadeas is exposed, he will lose Dalinar's respect.

Adolin will fall.

Now spoilers for Oathbringer upto the end of chapter 12

Not really a spoiler more observation but at ch 13 Oathbringer seems to be BSís most violent and sexual book he has done. Imo anyway.

This book has been good so far!

I don't know about the sexual part BK, Wax and Wayne is a lot more overtly sexual. BS still has the no premarital sex hangup.

There are definitely more sex references.

For the record I think all of Sanderson's gender differentials are strange - man food vs woman food, safehands, males being illiterate - it just seems to be quirkiness for the sake of quirkiness.

It's true. And it's funny too...in this one

Spoiler


I'm only on Chapter 6 or 7 but I'm enjoying thus far.

And

Spoiler


Is it me, or is Kal getting less broody?

Also, Shallan's inability to draw anything but surrealism right now is interesting and reflected in the sketches.

Oh, and the inner covers of the hardback images. So those are paintings of 4 Heralds right?

If I don't mis my guess they are...

Inside Front Cover 1: Ishar
Inside Front Cover 2: Shalash
Inside Back Cover 3: Jezrien
Inside Back Cover 4: Vedel

Cool, So there should be 6 more including Talenel.

Regarding Shallan QT, RAFO. Its important.

I'm probably slightly farther than QT and BK right now. This feels like the start of phase 2 of the series, so it is a little slower than WoR started. But I love the potential it offers and am especially enjoying Dalinar's present day story.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought it was a little weird when Syl was being a weird WingSpren.

I didnít realize the Heralds included women. The prologue in 1 have Kalak and Jezrien talking about ending the Oathpact and they are the only 2 present. Jezrien says that itís better if one man suffers rather then ten so I just assumed they were all male and I canít recall how in-depth bks 1&2 get on the subject of them.
