Okay, I know what you’re thinking: haha, it’s April First and all, but really it’s just a book review…or is it?
Title: The Way of Kings
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Length: 1008 Pages
Available on Amazon or pretty much anywhere!
So, I just finished this book over the weekend, and “Branderson” outdid himself again. I’ve come to find that epic fantasy isn’t something I love to read but seeing how much I absolutely enjoyed his Mistborn series, I thought I’d give this one a try as well.
It took me a couple weeks to get through the first part of the story, which is insanely long for a quick reader like me but like I said before, epic fantasy and I don’t always agree (but that’s more my fault that the genre). It takes a while to set up the world. However, this is the same author who was asked to finish the Wheel of Time series, so I wasn’t too surprised.
Once, the world was in my grasp, everything exploded off the pages. The characters, the challenges, and even the Branderson endings were as amazing and dare I say ‘epic.’ The author has the readers following a few different characters, all the while leading them closer together across this vast world (and the Cosmere).
Even if you don’t normally read epic fantasy, I highly suggest taking the time to read this one. Give it till at least mid-book before you decide if it’s right for you. And, given how long the book is, that’s about the length of an average novel anyway.
