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...


They are too big, so I've decided that from RoW onwards, I will be kindling Sanderson's bigger works.

He's been saying since the first book that the rest of the books will be shorter. Hopefully the page count is warranted this time. I thought Oathbringer could have benefited from either being shorter, or by cutting out some Shallan time in favor other other characters like Jasnah or Renarin.

Gods help me I've changed my order to the hardcover...because I feel like I need to collect these books as I already have 1-3...sigh. I'm such a book whore.

and in Typical Whelan style, it's excellent.

Itís certainly Whelan but it already has a large black mark on it featuring that head case Shallen which has to be my single most least favorite character in any series Iíve ever read. Lovely coloring though.

Maybe it's Veil or Radiant on the cover. :killingme: Not exactly an improvement to Shallan, though.

I'm starting to get pretty excited for this book. I'm avoiding the preview chapters, but people are saying they're exciting with some good Cosmere lore.


I've read the 4 recaps from 17th Shard here
and I recommend it if you need a refresher. And as always, the Coppermind Wiki is one of the best Wiki's you'll find for a fantasy author.

I just hope the Dawnshard novella comes out with enough time for me to read it before RoW.

Yeah it's separate. It should be sent to Kickstarter backers for a TWoK special edition any day now, then sold to the general public after that.

Yeah I spent about 20 minutes and decided to stop before I spent hours going down rabbit holes. Really well done and that timeline is awesome with the effects it has.

There are 3 video reviews out so far. Based on the reviews I expect some mixed reactions to this book, like with Oathbringer or possibly even moreso.

A summary of some of the controversial points from the reviews:
Spoiler


I guess I can't post the videos. The reviews are by Daniel Greene, Merphy Napier, and 17th Shard.

Based on the reviews I'd say there's a decent chance you'll struggle with RoW
