The #1 New York Times bestselling sequel to Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.
In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times bestselling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.
Dalinar Kholin’s Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost: The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction, and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.
Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar’s blood-soaked past and stand together—and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past—even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

I loved this book! This book was SOOOOOO amazing. I loved the recurrent theme of be yourself.55
Read three of the books, and this last one was a mistake. There were too many disjointed sequences which made for confusion. Usually, going back in time can be interesting, but in this book it mainly served to sidetrack the reader away from a story that needed a more consistent path.25
Best series I’ve ever read. Love the characters and the world building in this series is mind blowing.55
Amazing and profound, Sanderson does such a great job at making this epic fantasy relatable!!!55
Today marks a dismal day, for today, I finished Oathbringer and now am subject to nearly a whole year of waiting for Stormlight 4. Part of me worries ‘will Sanderson be able to top Oathbringer?’ Yet part of me believes, or rather knows, that like Bridge 4 believes in Kaladin’s resolve, I believe in Sanderson Stormblessed. So for the next year, I can rest easy knowing the next book will be another masterpiece, as is Oathbringer. Oathbringer is everything Stormlight fans would want in the next-in-series. The story is extremely well-crafted, and quite simply, a required read for anyone claiming to be a fan of epic fantasy, or anyone who just likes an incredible story.55
I feel like this might not be a popular opinion but I’m looking for something that fills the void left by ASOIAF until TWOW comes out. This just wasn’t it. The characters lack the depth of Martin’s characters. The story is fairly predictable. The novels are long and I just can’t bring myself to finish this because I just don’t care about the characters.25
Seriously though, I can’t wait tell no 455
Brandon Sanderson’s masterpiece immerses the reader into a gripping tale. The dramatic, political and religious elements create a well-balanced adventure of fantasy. This work is a page-turner that will take the reader through a gamut of emotions.55
Brandon Sanderson is the best world builder our world has! His stories and charters and worlds are phenomenal! This book, all 1200 hardback pages of it (even if read partly on iPhone) are enjoyable!55
