The Way of Kings
- The Stormlight Archive
- By: Brandon Sanderson
- Narrated by: Michael Kramer, Kate Reading
- Length: 45 hrs and 29 mins
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).

One great voice-actor, one robot
What did you like best about The Way of Kings? What did you like least?
It's a Brandon Sanderson epic, just the kind of book I like. Michael Kramer's voice acting is fantastic and throws you into the world. Unfortunately, it ground to a halt when Kate Reading took over.
Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading ’s performances?
Michael Kramer, absolutely. His work is fantastic. Kate Reading lacked any emotion, feeling, or engagement with the role. I have had to stop listening to the book and cannot continue. Unfortunately, this is one series I'll have to read rather than listen to.
