    The Last Battle has started. The seals on the Dark One’s prison are crumbling. The Pattern itself is unraveling, and the armies of the Shadow have begun to boil out of the Blight. The sun has begun to set upon the Third Age. Perrin Aybara is now hunted by specters from his past: Whitecloaks, a slayer of wolves, and the responsibilities of leadership. All the while, an unseen foe is slowly pulling a noose tight around his neck....

    "Excellent so far!"

    BTW I did get the Prologue when I downloaded so bear that in mind. This is turning out to be as great as "The Gathering storm"! That, added to the great value of 48 hours for one credit, this is definitely worth the listen!

    Some feel the Lady, newly risen from centuries in thrall, stands between humankind and evil. Some feel she is evil itself. The hardbitten men of the Black Company take their pay and do what they must, burying their doubts with their dead - until the prophesy: The White Rose has been reborn, somewhere, to embody good once more. There must be a way for the Black Company to find her....

    Overall

    I nearly didn't get this book because of the reviews. However I am very glad I did. In fact I am currently paying for book 3 because I can't wait for my next credit (the reason it gets 4 out of 5 is because the books are so damned short.) I have listened to many of the fantasy / Sci-Fi featured on Audible... and I have to say that this is a very worthy addition! ~ just had to get used to the first person perspective.... I am so used to the limited omniscient third, that at first it was hard to follow. Mayhapps that is why these nay sayers were so down on the book.

    Try it out for a change of pace. Good Plot. Intriguing Characters, and Fun to listen to. However, remember that it takes some getting used to the perspective of the Author of the Annals.

    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.

    Jason says: "Brandon's Best Work Yet"
    "Wow"
    Overall

    I have listened (Thank you Audible for filling my long drive to work) to most of Brandon Sanderson's books since hearing the announcement that he would be completing the Wheel of Time (Robert Jordan's Masterpiece.) I decided to listen to Sanderson's books in chronological order of release date; and I must say that Sanderson's writing style has developed into a style that I have come to thoroughly enjoy. While his earlier books had a slow start and the token Sanderson Avalanche at the end, this book had me riveted from near the start to finish. I found myself driving in the slow lane just so I could find out what happens next. While Gathering Storm was incredible, The Way of Kings has returned me to the days where as kid in middle school I would stay up late reading The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan or Wizards First Rule by Terry Good Kind. The Way of Kings makes you care about the people in the book and their struggles. To sum up, this is a MUST read - or listen to - for all the fantasy genera fans who like to care about, and be engaged by, characters in a book. - Blood and Bloody Storming Ashes, this is worth the listen!
