Words of Radiance by Brandon Sanderson.
(Part of ‘The Way of Kings’ or more formally ‘Stormlight Archive’ series. Words of Radiance being the ‘2nd’ book in the series and the 3rd in reading order!)
Kaladin and Shallan are slowly getting used to the new powers they’ve acquired and bonding better with their respective Spren. Kaladin being Kaladin is quick to get back into his old army rhythm and Dalinar is hoping his gamble, in trusting a lowly bridge man, will pay off. It better because the way things are going it doesn’t look like Dalinar’s house will be around much longer any way!
On the far side of Roshar Shallan is under the watchful gaze of her mentor Jasnah, who is still undecided as to where her pupil’s loyalties truly lie. If so, should she really be teaching someone such as her? For all she knows she’s teaching her potential killer! The assassin in white is still out there, at large, slowly, mercilessly hunting down his forsaken pray. Will anyone have the power to stop him? If so who? But who will be next to fall under his bloody blade if no one could do such a thing?
Teen Rating: A breathtaking creation, which I could only describe as literally a drug in the form of a book. I kid you not, it was almost physically impossible to take my eyes of the page! 4/5 13+
