This was an amazing sequel. I liked the series so much that I purchased this book since they had only 1 and 3 until only a couple days ago. I have never had a book stress me out before because I was worried about the characters, and somehow this book triggered these irrational thoughts. Sanderson isn't the "best" writer. However he tells such a good story that it completely sucks you in. There are almost no sections of the book that don't have you on the edge of your seat. Highly recommended. This and A Song of Ice and Fire are two of the best fantasy series on audible.
I've never listened to a series with such little plot progression in my life. I have a feeling if Jordon was still alive there would have been 10 more books. The audio glitches are just a slight annoyance. What is more annoying is how little is said with so many words. I don't mind the detail in what people are wearing etc. What I do mind is the mindless chatter or thinking that causes the plot to move along at a snails pace. The only interesting parts in this whole book were Matt's story and the last 30 minutes. Nothing of importance happens in the entire story except for the very end. The only reason I listen to these stories now is because I invested so much time already and care about the 3 main Emminsfield boys. The other 4000 useless characters are beyond boring. Way to much time is spent with Nineve, she is so one dimensional its sickening. How is every single influential character still alive? Nineve having her head chopped off by a trollic would be the best thing to ever happen to this series.
Want these types of stories but full of content and not useless dribble? Search A Song of Ice and Fire. Now thats a series that is well worth your time.
I want my 300+ hours of my life back.
