    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.

    Overall

    The book draws you into the characters immediately but soon I stopped caring what happens to any of them. In WOT there were periods when good things happened to the characters. In WOK most of them live lives of unrelenting misery. Half way through this first book, I find myself increasingly depressed. Have grown to hate the term "storm." Each chapter ends with the characters being maligned, beaten and mistrusted. I will listen to the end and hope that I can come to the next book in the series with a more positive attitude.
