The way of Kings-part one by Brandon Sanderson
The first book in the stormlight archives. The way of kings is a fantasy book. It’s set in an almost totally different world to ours. The book follows a few different people’s view points and perspectives, looking at ‘the war’ from almost every angle. ‘The war’ is the main focus in this book, going back to it’s origins, who started it ect. The area where the book mainly takes place is called ‘Alethkar‘. The king of Alethkar was King Gavilar, Gavier and his brother united all of Alethkar, conquering all in their path and making it one nation. After doing so they discovered a new species of ‘Parshendi’, this is where it gets confusing, for some reason or another the ‘Parshendi’ assassinate the king. The Kingdom pledges revenge and viciously attacks the ‘Parshendi’. This is ‘the war’, who will win and at what cost?
Teen Rating: A seriously complex book. Quite similar to Eragon or The Lord of the Rings, but even more gripping. 5/5 . 14+ .
