Book Five

To be released on November 2024


This series is a long one and Sanderson is still writing new books at the moment. The world building is unparalleled and there is nothing like it. The most amazing thing to me is that Sanderson is writing multiple books and somehow is able to still churn out books at an amazing rate.

If you like epic fantasy, then this is your cup of tea. A lot of great fights, twists, characters, and villains. There is a lot happening at all times and you never know what to expect. I will be reading the fourth installation in the series within the next three months but until then, you can read the reviews for the previous three. Happy reading!

    I have been wanting to start this but think I really need the print version. I purchased the audio for a trip and just couldn’t follow

      It might be too long for audio. There’s a lot of plot development that makes the book long which I would imagine to be dull with audio
