The title says it all for now. His update today has it as current title. Will update thread as info comes.

I sincerely hope that I donít feel any need to give bk 4 a permanent different title unlike another book in this series.

I am rather curious to see the difference in POV for the majority of this book though and how much change it can possibly bring.

This is still a hell of a long way away though. He said if he finished by Jan we can probably get by Xmas 2020 but I have high doubts about that. I say 2021 easy.

Brandon wrote an entire YA trilogy, two novellas, and the next Mistborn book in the time it took you to post that.

TWoK - 384,000
WoR - 398,000
OB - 454,000

400,000 sounds like perfect length for one of these books

The series is reportedly 3 three-book "parts" or "arcs" split up, and one final 10th cap-off book. So THE WAY OF KINGS to OATHBRINGER completes that first arc, and the next volume will be book 1 of the second arc. So HOPEFULLY it will be less of a snore since we will be entering into a new portion of the series?

Maybe I missed something recently, but I'm pretty sure it's two 5-book arcs with a time gap in between them.

Yep, it's two 5 book arcs. Where QuickTidal probably got confused is the fact that each book is designed as a trilogy. They are also written in five parts, which makes things confusing.
Also, are you implying that OB was a snorefest? How can you do such a thing? Easily the best of the series for me, especially Dalinar's arc.

QT actually really enjoyed it once it got going. Iím the one that thinks itís my least favorite read/book of my reading life beating out Republic of Thieves that had that honor up to then. I wonít even call it by itís title.

Part 5 was dope though. So was the early part of part 1.

Republic of Thieves was a little strained, I agree - the Locke/Sabetha dynamic didn't really sit well with me. The previous two were amazing though - especially Lies.

It's been a while since I read it, so can't exactly remember what happened in each part, but IIRC part 5 was the Battle of Thaylen Field? If so, dope isn't sufficient to describe it - try FREAKING AWESOME!!!11ONEONEONE. The way the developments of Kaladin and Dalinar throughout the book converge there is awesome. Not to mention Dalinar's total badassery, and the revelation of Cultivation's cleverness (she still isn't as sharp as Leras/Preservation, imo)

It was a LONG time getting there, but yes late in the book I began to really enjoy it. It's still the weakest of the series so far by a long stretch and I have higher hopes for the next one.

I'd probably say I prefer Oathbringer to TWoK just because it was more interesting to me. But I certainly hope that the next book is leaner without sacrificing content. Like the Szeth story in Oathbringer--a complete arc in part 4 that was quick and to the point. There are plenty of interesting characters in this series...I hope Brandon can give the main 3 characters a break and give some of the secondary characters these Szeth-like story arcs.

The guy writes like a demon, and I never had a problem with that untill the last book. That thing needed a serious edit. I need to reread it before the next book but I dont really want to. I love the world building he does, I love the ecology, the planet, the powers of the knights but the plots drag in this series! I realize Kaladin is basically mentally ill and has depressive episodes and in real life one doesnt just fix something like that. Still the plot of book one was him overcoming it, the plot of book two was overcoming it and the plot of book three he overcome it twice! Nevermind Shallan!

She killed that book for me.

Iím dreading the price tag of this one but if thereís a positive I ll say about Slogbringer besides part 5 and everything Lift it is the quality of its binding! A huge step up from 1&2 which I think will not survive multiple reads. Slogbringer absolutely will survive them though why anyone would do leaves me puzzled. Lol

We will get $50 SLA hardcovers at some future point guaranteed.

Canít wait to see Whelanís cover!

Hereís the current thingy bob for bk 4 currently listed at 1088 pgs.

After forming a coalition of human resistance against the enemy invasion, Dalinar Kholin and his Knights Radiant have spent a year fighting a protracted, brutal war. Neither side has gained an advantage.

Now, as new technological discoveries begin to change the face of the war, the enemy prepares a bold and dangerous operation. The arms race that follows will challenge the very core of the Radiant ideals, and potentially reveal the secrets of the ancient tower that was once the heart of their strength.

Ok the word count is in. 459,629 which is even bigger then Slogbringers 454,000. The page count is still sitting on 1088 so maybe that hasnít been updated yet. Slogbringer hc listed on 1248pgs. I donít have the will or want to go the 35 ft to the computer room to check if that piece of shit book lines up with that number or not. Gonna be some tiny ass print if itís longer yet shorter then bk 3...
