Just finished the first three books of Brandon Sanderson’s Stormlight Archives. The first book The Way of Kings, was extremely good, with an interesting magic system, some great battles, and the awesome story of Bridge Four. BRIDGE FOUR!
The second book, Words of Radiance, was good but not great IMO. It didn’t have a single great hook plot line like Bridge Four IMO and some of the battles and magic use started to feel a tad repepitive.
The third book, Oathbringer, was only OK. Not bad, but somewhat scattered, going a bit far afield IMO, and lacking some of the punch of the first book. A good series overall, but I’ll have to wait and read some reviews when the 4th book comes out.
Continuing my current epic fantasy binge, I started the first book of Daniel Abraham’s The Dragon’s Path, The Dagger and the Coin. Still getting into it, but it looks promising thus far.
PS - I think yearly threads would be good. The monthly threads are not overly long.
