Oh that might have been it! All I remembered was some sort of backwards e or E.

I thought the audiobook calls him AY-doe-lin.

Going into Oathbringer now.

The last bit of the main storyline I saw was Jasnah coming back from the dead. :laugh: It went into the interludes after that, but this oughta be good! I'm glad she's back, whatever the explanation. She's an amazing character. :pleased-1:

Scrolled through all these posts super quick to avoid any spoilers, because I just started The Way of Kings this morning and I wanted to share that here! I'm only a few pages in, but in all honesty, I really didn't want to put it down, if only to figure out what the heck is going on :) I know there's a LOOOOOONG journey ahead, but I'm glad there's a place to discuss things here :)

I am on book 3 still. I need to get back into it!

I loved book 1 though! :love

That being said, I think I prefer Brandon's other books. :look:

Will do! If I happen to run into a part in the books as I read them where I'm freaking and I need to talk to SOMEONE about it (ya'll know the feeling ;)), can I post about it here?

Yeah, this would be the perfect place!! All I suggest is adding spoilers to spoily thoughts.

Ok, officially halfway through TWoK, and I have thoughts........

  1. I really hope Shallan ditches this idea of stealing Jasnah's Soulcaster and finds another way to help out her family. This girl has got some serious potential and I really want to see what she's capable of!
  2. What in the Cosmere is Jasnah up to? I know, I know...RAFO, but still!
  3. I am LOVING how at first all these characters were so separate at the beginning and slowly, ever so slowly, are they being brought closer and closer and closer together. Will they eventually all be linked together in fewer than 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon? Ooo, I hope so and I can't wait to find out how!
  4. Ok, Kaladin is a badass, this much is true. But I'm also a fan of Dalinar. He seems like the only selfless Highprince in the war camp and given the political implications, this is not easy. And yet he remains a man of strong values and morals. I'm actually kind of nervous for him on how this will all play out.
  5. Szeth. This guy. I can't quite figure him out. Is he good? Is he bad? And why would I even have this question since he killed a king? I don't know. It just seems like the White Assassin has much more to him than meets the eye (either that, or it's wishful thinking).
Just wanted to get some thoughts out there before diving into the rest of the book!!

Glad you're enjoying it! The book has a strong back half too, so rest assured you're in good hands. :D

Truth: I'm struggling to get through the newest one.

I use reading as an escape and so I guess that makes me a bit shallow in that I want to see characters who always overcome every struggle. So with every character pretty much representative of a different mental illness and STRUGGLING, I feel like I'm at work with psych patients and it's just not the escape I'm looking for. Sorry, end of rant.

Yeah the latest one has some more heavy moments and themes. Not a light hearted read.

. <insert the most obscene string of curses here> Roshone. Ditto Amaram. I am so bewilderingly infuriated right now. Screw those guys. I hope they both die violent fiery slow deaths at the hands of the people they betrayed.
. I swear I’m a nice person. :laugh:

I think that is a very normal reaction Veriendha ;) And the very reaction Brandon Sanderson wants us to feel.

But yes, though I am not a huge Kaladin fan, I wish bad things to happen to both Roshone and Amaram :look:
All I can say is RAFO ;)
