Definitely a new story-line in the series. This book takes place exclusively in the battlefield with rare appearances and references to the favorite characters of past volumes. And given the type of fighting these Heroes are doing...don't expect to lose your hearts to them. The Heroes is just another name for a graveyard after all. I liked the grittiness and honest endings found in this book. A fitting end to a series, although I am not so sure it is a fitting end to THIS series as it feels quite out of sync with the previous books. A good listen for all the blood and gore and gristle!
You can't judge a book by its cover and I almost didn't buy this because of the jacket cover! What a shame that would have been. This book is a must LISTEN, ....some books should not be Kindled, printed or pixelated. Don't be put off by the comments about its religious undertones, the book is more about Fate than Faith. Has voice ever been such a crucial component in a story?
I can't say if the book gets any better after the first 25% but after reading Sanderson's other books I can't believe this is the same author. The listen was so achingly boring after the initial episode! The beginning lacks cohesion and feels pointless. It may be better as a book-read as you could skip the slow parts. A great listen for taking a nap to!
