I was pretty against reading the excerpts, but then I re read books 1 and 2 and was simply unable to stop reading after that. So now I look forward to them a lot Laughing

I've read all books, missing out on a few of the short stories, the graphic novels and stuff like Arcanum unbounded.

Do yourself a favor and read Arcanum Unbounded

White Sand isn't really required

Though, there are so many revelations in Arcanum, it is a must read, so many shocks. Especially with Mistborn Secret History, it explains a lot about what happened in Bands of Mourning (if you've read that)

Pretty epic stuff. 2 days. (should've released it right after the chapter IMO when hype is biggest)

Got ahold of the audiobook for the first novel, gonna get around to it soon. 45 hrs long ffs. Never listened to an audiobook, hopefully it isn't a struggle to adapt.

Yeah im done

Spoiler:
I think this is the best book out of the three even better than WoR, my jaw dropped when Dalinar stood his ground and freaking ascended, i take it he is a shardic entity now? Unity? Since Odium claims he is.

The most interesting stuff is the part 2 epigraphs whom are heavily speculated (some given out) to be Endowment, Autonomy and Harmony (Sazed). The most interesting is that one of the letters says 'if Rayse becomes a problem, we will deal with him'. Goosebumps when i read that, who is this guy that can easily 'deal' with him like nothing lol.

Azure=Vivenna was nice, Mraize wanting to control Sja Anat is terrifying. I still don't what his endgame is, he is one of the most intriguing worldhoppers. Wit bonding a spren at the end was expected, i get the impression thats the end of his chapter in Roshar.

The last act was insane, i couldn't put it down. The whole Knights Radiant lead by Dalinar felt like something out of Avengers. Szeth, Kaladin, Shallan, Jasnah, Lift, Renarin :bow:

OB:

Last act was amazing. Plan to re read it again as a lottt went on. Think a few things got lost along the way there, but it was epic.

Dalinar ascending was absolutely jaw dropping. I was so convinced that he would flip sides, Brandon really got me. He would have been the perfect antagonist, and very tragic, and it seemed to fit his arc. Would make sense to have a big defeat in book 3. Ascencion was the last thing I expected. Will be interesting to find out if he is now a Sliver, just a 5th level bondsmith or an entirely new Shard  (Unity) in the making.  If the stormfather is not the one that has been telling him "unite them" since book 1, I wonder who has?

Also he's far too overpowered now. Can merge all realms. Has access to limitless supply of stormlight (in light of this fact Szeth should give him nightblood). Access to both bondsmith surges.

Azure leaving was kinda random. She''s allegedly hunting Zahel (probably nightblood) and decides to part ways with the people that know him? I guess Brandon is keeping this card for later.

We got blueballed with Kal's 4th ideal and Adolin reviving his sword. I guess it will formulaically have to wait until the climax of book 4. And speaking of Adolin I wonder how he will react when he finds out the truth about his mother?

Spoiler:
The last act was incredible, i couldn’t put the book down after starting that. Thats a good shout about Dalinar becoming a Sliver, though what drives me nuts is how can he ascend off a Splinter (Stormfather), when Vin ascended she manipulated the mists and became Preservation. But now that Honor is dead, i don’t think Dalinar will fulfill his shoes so to speak. One theory im reading is that Dalinar has become a ‘demi-shard’ (Unity), he has already been trying to fulfill his shardic intent for a while (uniting). It wouldn’t be farfetched to assume that he will try to unite the shards and restore Adonalsium.

Also, Tanavast has been telling him to unite them since book 1, thought that was already established?

I’m most interested in Part 2 epigraphs, the general consensus seems to be that letter 1=Endowment (Edgli), Letter 2=Autonomy (Bavadin), Letter 3=Harmony (Sazed). A recent WoB says that 3 are all shards that we know.

Im bummed that we didnt see the 17th shard this time Sad

Also, i don’t want to spoil Arcanum for you, but if you want to know about the humans pre-roshar, i think you should read it, lots of tidbits.

Plus there are some short stories there that tie in to the Cosmere

"Picture of Dorian Gray"

The first book I've read in English (I don't read a lot) and I loved it. This book is phenomenal. In an extravagant manner depicts the clash between two worlds and the internal transformation of the main character (the impact of cynicism and corruption on an inexperienced and gullible character). Rottenness and beauty at the same time.

Simply amazing.
