Hey Brandon.... if you're reading, I really really REALLY wouldn't mind reading the story of how Skar and Drehy and Shallan's sidekicks rescued the prince and got the hell out of Alethkar.

I'd say more important that dalkinar is bonding the storm father real good is that it works both ways.

The stormfather early on says that he understands why the human heralds broke their paths and that he could almost forgive them. Before as a a splinter of honour it was black and white.

Not reading too much of the thread, but I just entered Part 3 and I'm solidly enjoying this now after being really non-plussed and bored for MOST of Part 2.

That convo with Odium tho...awesome.

Also, Lift talking about Dalinar's tight butt and how he can't be trusted because of that...I admit I laughed uproariously.

SWEET! Man, that's one of my favourite Sanderson books.

That's okay heathen man, you're welcome to be wrong it's all good

Oh man, so I just reached THAT chapter. Dalinar. That's fucking heartbreaking.

Also, I largely skim the Veil chapters...because they are SO boring. The Shallan chapters are fine, but I just can't BUY her when she's Veil....it all feel so fake!

Okay, Part 3 ending was BLEAK, but awesome.

But Part 4....Szeth bantering/dealing with Nightblood is my everything. Just waiting for Vasher to show up and I'll have all three of the best parts of WARBREAKER in a goddamned Stormlight book! This. Is. Awesome!

I'm sorry I took so long to get back to this. There's been some filler in the last few hundred pages for sure, but a lot of it was poignantly done so it didn't bother me much...overall this book is every bit as excellent I'd hoped it would be...it seems like Part 2 was my only stumble...everything else has been cream.

Big Warbreaker fan? How is this possible!

Out of curiosity what were the 3 big moments? I cant remember one awesome moment in the whole novel.

I loved the Szeth chapters in part 4. I wish he and Jasnah would have gotten more screen time in favor of Shallan.

Finished…fuuuuuuuuck. That last few hundred pages were EPIC!

Lift is easily the best character in this series by far...followed by Azure/Viv.

It’s a solid book, and I enjoyed at least 70% of it...but there is a good 30% full on filler that juddered me to a stop often.

And I agree with BK...Shallan is a horrible POV to follow. Ugh.

Lots of crazy developments to the series arc.

I’m with Abyss on the Kholinar battle/action sequence...fucking phenomenal.

Shadesmar was fine, but. But dragged out.

But that finale....sweet fucking zombie Jesus....soooooooo good!

Glad you liked that much of it. Shallan just exhausted me and it affected my ability to enjoy everyone else. It went beyond what it should have!! After my initial excitement of being back with a new book I struggled from late part 1 early part 2 till parts of part 4. Part 3 has prob my most eye rolling moment from what I can recall with Kaladin
Spoiler


If im ever to pick this book up again in a series power reread it would only be to reread part 5. I have no wish to ever again punish myself with the rest lmao. Def happy others seemed to enjoy Slogbringer though.

I had to do it. Ha

Sometimes it could take me days to complete chapters where Pattern was the icon(Shallan heavy) and it was really painful when it was in a row..
