The whole series was a wonder. Lots of late nights listening. Not enough superlatives to describe this book. So I'll leave it at that.

According to mythology, mankind used to live in 'The Tranquiline Halls': heaven. But then the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men. Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms, but the Voidbringers followed. The Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, the Shardblades. Led by 10 angelic Heralds and 10 orders of knights known as Radiants, mankind finally won (or so the legends say).

Having read the whole series. This story was a lot to wade through. I found the switching of one main character to another a bit frustrating and when the end came it came so suddenly it was a shock. To me it felt as though the author had run out of ideas of how to finish. I did get the story and the discriptions and atmosphere of the whole tale was great. Any one who liked this story if they haven't listened to it will love the "Mistborn" series by the same auther, which I found a lot easier to follow and a book to be recommended.

Here is an historic adventure of extraordinary power waiting to sweep you away to exotic lands as one of the most popular writers of our time conquers new storytelling worlds. Louis L'Amour has been best known for his ability to capture the spirit and drama of the authentic American West. Here, he guides listeners to an even more distant frontier -- the enthralling lands of the 12th century.

AKIN TO A VIDEO GAME

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 15-02-11

The story line seemed to repeat itself over and over again, with the hero finding a woman, rescuing a woman having an unconvincing battle and inbetween times learning the whole encyclopdia of life. It would suit a video game to a T. even in the way the fight scenes are discribed. I think no matter where you opened it to continue the story, you would not Have missed anything.
