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.

I have had difficulty getting through novels in the past. Because of the narration, the story, or the investment of time. This was something different. I couldn't quit this book. I'm ready for the next one.

a little too dramatic and long-winded although the story was really interesting it felt kind of boring and flat because of the redundancy in conversation
