Description

The eagerly awaited sequel to the New York Times best-selling Words of Radiance, from epic fantasy author Brandon Sanderson at the top of his game.

In Oathbringer, the third volume of the New York Times best-selling Stormlight Archive, humanity faces a new Desolation with the return of the Voidbringers, a foe with numbers as great as their thirst for vengeance.

Dalinar Kholin's Alethi armies won a fleeting victory at a terrible cost. The enemy Parshendi summoned the violent Everstorm, which now sweeps the world with destruction and in its passing awakens the once peaceful and subservient parshmen to the horror of their millennia-long enslavement by humans. While on a desperate flight to warn his family of the threat, Kaladin Stormblessed must come to grips with the fact that the newly kindled anger of the parshmen may be wholly justified.

Nestled in the mountains high above the storms, in the tower city of Urithiru, Shallan Davar investigates the wonders of the ancient stronghold of the Knights Radiant and unearths dark secrets lurking in its depths. And Dalinar realizes that his holy mission to unite his homeland of Alethkar was too narrow in scope. Unless all the nations of Roshar can put aside Dalinar's blood-soaked past and stand together - and unless Dalinar himself can confront that past - even the restoration of the Knights Radiant will not prevent the end of civilization.

Critiques

"Character development is at the heart of the book, and it is here that Kramer and Reading shine, with remarkably consistent and multifaceted characters that fuel the action of the story.... Adept pacing highlights both the intensity of hand-to-hand combat and quieter moments of sorrow and grief, fully realizing the intricate world that Sanderson has created." (AudioFile Magazine)

Strong Storytelling, will upset Kaladin fans

Oathbringer is book three of five. The first five books in the Stormlight Archive tell their own story. Later, another set of five will tell another story. Sometimes all the heroes win in the middle, sometimes they fail. In this book, we have both wins and losses. In one book, you have three small novels going on, with important points of view from many people.

Sanderson dives deeper into the cultures of Roshar and the conflicts that have nothing to do with the “bad guys.” Instead many of the conflicts are inside different characters own heads and hearts. This aspect of the story will be hard for many fans. This aspect of the story is important. Awareness of bias and of mental health issues is important. It’s rare to see them addressed so directly in an adventure fantasy.

But in this book, Kaladin, the hero of book one and book two – is not the star. He has growth, but not the awesome growth of power leveling up I think many fans were hoping to read. Instead, Bridge 4 as a whole, is given more points of view and room to grow. Sometime these are painful in heart wrenching ways, but in beautiful character development ways.

Dalinar’s flashbacks will make you look at him differently. It will be hard to see a hero in such a different light. Journey before destination everyone. His journey is a strong one.

The ladies of the Stormlight Archive are given more room to grow here. But at times it is a backward growth. At others it is wonderful to see them breaking the molds of Voirn culture.

Once you turn the page on Part 5, get ready for a rush of a ride. You will not want to put the book down for the final act.

Many important magical questions are answered in this volume of the Stormlight Archive, but it raises more questions. Some of the questions answered, were not the ones many fans were hoping to see addressed, including myself. I hope readers will appreciate the story that was written, for what was written. Not criticizes it because it was not the story they were expecting. I know I love the book, even if there are a few bits I wish were different. But the characters are not perfect people. They would be less interesting if they were.

I love that that the art is included even for the audio book. That is an extra special treat. Michael Kramer and Kate Reading do their typically awesome job narrating the books. I’m glad they kept the voices of the characters the same from the first two volumes of the books.

A mixed bag of brilliance, marred by missteps

Brandon Sanderson is one of the greatest story tellers writing today; and this series is his magnum opus. Book 3 is not the strongest of the series. But it still soars in many places, despite some missteps throughout.
Parts of this book left me cheering out loud! Parts of this book are truly awe inspiring.

Other parts had me shaking my head, as long established characters suddenly behaved in ways that contradicted everything the author has told us about them in the past.
For such an immense book, it surprised me how many times an obvious shortcut was taken in order to setup the next scene.

There was one long scene involving a female lead that had no purpose other than comic relief. This bungling, slapstick detour was so jarring, it was hard to return to the rhythm of the story. Worst of all, it felt amateurish, and just wasn't funny.

Almost every competent character had a moment of incompetence so glaring that it became obvious this was a deliberate gimmick. Possibly a recommendation from an editor, but taken too far?

But still, with all of that said, this is still a mostly brilliant story. The action scenes top any blockbuster movie put out this year.
It was filled with many pay-offs from the previous books, some of them setup so expertly that they still surprised me, despite the clues revealed before.

Like all of his books, this was also a vehicle for the author's social, political, and moral view of the world. Presented nicely as part of the story with not-too-much outright preaching.

Not the best he has written.

I loved the first two books in this series but I had a hard time keeping my attention on the story. I went back many times and listened to parts again and again. There are great parts but there are more that just lag. This isn’t the best he has written.

Perfection in literature.

If you have read the first two books in this series, then you already know Brandon Sanderson is the greatest storyteller of our generation, and, one of the best to ever put pen to page. That is not grandiose hyperbole. It is understatement. So, now that my opinion on the author is clear, the book. The book is excellent! The pacing is great and the story progressed just the right amount for me. In my opinion, what Sanderson does the best of any writer I have ever read, is the tear-down and rebuilding of characters. I will say, that this book seems to spend more time making everything seem like it's getting worse and worse before finally we see positive change and victories for the main characters. Not really a negative for me but it does feel like there is no hope till nearly the end of the book. I am so glad Sanderson doesn't suffer from whatever George R.R Martin and Patrick Rothfuss have been afflicted with. I think we can reasonably expect the next book in 2-3 years, which is amazing considering he will also be churning out other incredible books and stories along the way.

DISAPPOINTED

I recommended the other two books to many friends and family and unfortunately I cannot recommend this one. The book was easy to put down for days and seemed just a long set up for a next book. This story focused too much on the human flaws and frailties of the main characters which is not that interesting or fun to read/listen. All victories were short lived with the next threat looming and that gets tiring after 55 hours. It might be that my expectations were too high after the first two books in the series which I had trouble putting down and wished for more. I prefer an epic tale of heroes with super skills and powers that have great adventures to a series of battles and failures. I still think Brandon Sanderson is a great writer and although I did not enjoy this book I certainly could not do what he does and create and write a story like his.

Another Sanderson Masterpiece

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was interesting to witness the surprising development of the characters and plot. Being unable to accurately predict drew me in even more intensely. Waiting for the next book will be challenging!

The next step, always the next step.

Oathbringer is at it's core a story about broken people in a broken world. The protector torn apart by wanting to protect all sides in a war, the tyrant trying to unite instead of conquer, the addict struggling to overcome himself. Flawed people always trying to take the next step.
As always beautifully narrated by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer Oathbringer is a masterpiece in a great series.

So lange drauf gewartet und nicht ganz entäuscht

Wie immer: 50 % sind einfach der absolute Wahnsinn und die ander Hälfte könnte man ganz einfach weglassen. Das Problem ist mann kann nicht sagen was weg soll und was nicht. Da hat sich der Brandon schon viele Gedanken zu gemacht.

Unfassbar komplexe Geschichte mit so vielen Strängen und Namen das sogar Game of Thrones Fans beeindruckt sind.

Ich werde es wieder hören aber whrschl erst so in 5 Jahren. Man warum muss er noch einen Teil raus bringen?! Was ist so schlecht an einer guten Trilogie? Jetzt heisst es wieder 3 Jahre warten.

Trotzdem: Hörempfehlung von meiner Seite.

A bit underwhelming

The first two books of Stormlight Archive felt a bit childish compared to Mistborn series.
But I hoped that the third book would have the similar effect as the third book in Mistborn trilogy. However, i didn’t feel that the ending and the conclusion of the story wrapped everything nicely. There are just too many questions and uncertainties. And that would be fine if it would be the first or second book in the trilogy.
I wished the third book wrapped up the story better - grander.

An unequivocal masterpiece!

Another brilliant work by Sanderson, marvellously performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading.
I absolutely recommend picking up this series, and indeed all of Sanderson's Cosmere installments, if you have not done so already. Rather than growing repetitive, tiresome or confusing as the various series progress, they actually manage to continually build momentum and make the reader crave ever more.

fesselnd, vielschichtig, unvorhersehbar<br />

wirklich spannendes Heldenepos mit vielschichtig ausgearbeiteten Figuren. Dieser Teil lebt stark von Rückblenden, was sich auf die Gesamtgeschichte allerdings sehr verbindend auswirkt. Es erklären sich nun die Entwicklungen der Charaktere und Wendungen der Geschichte. Genial finde ich den gleitenden übergang zwischen Gut und Böse...
Einziger Kritikpunkt ist die Aufteilung in 2 Sprecher. Die Sprecher geben durch ihren unterschiedlichen Stil den gleichen Personen unterschiedliche Charaktere, leider . Ich muss der weiblichen Stimme leider auch eine schlechtere Bewertung geben. Ich finde, sie trifft nicht immer den richtigen Ton zur jeweiligen Situation und Stimmung.
