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.

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.

Very VERY disappointed

All I have to say is if you are a Kaladin this book will disappoint you. It is like half a book for Kaladin. He is the only main character who doesn’t make any progress and seems to actually go backward. When it looks like the book is building up for something for him it ends up going nowhere. When he is in a big battle he lets the readers anticipation down.

All the other characters had decent progression especially of course Dalinar since this band ok is mainly about him. I would have been happy if something worth rereading happened to Kaladin but nothin of note did, unless you include his short return home. Definitely not something I will reread 4 or 5 times like the first two book. Probably won’t reread it until the next book comes out.

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.

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.

WOW!!!!! ITS GOOD TO BE BACK

just like the 1st two books, this one is fantastic! Hands down 5 stars to the story and to Kramer. If you are any kind of fan of fantasy/syfy books, this one will NOT disappoint. The only thing i cant figure out, is who thought it would be a good idea to have Kate Reading perform in this novel. I so pose if she read a book that had only one character, and it was a female at that, she mite do fine. So listeners be warned that you mite find your self putting the story on 2x when it comes to the Shalon Davar parts of the story.

this 3rd book answers a lot of questions about the series, and i found it about impossible to put down after i stated this book. I would purposely take detours to work just so i could listen longer.Its a must read book and if you can just soldier though any Kate Reading parts of the book you wont be disappointed its in your library.

Tedious

What did you like best about Oathbringer? What did you like least?

The premise of the book was great, and the end was decent. Liked the idea of the humans not necessarily being the heroes they thought they were.The rest was just tedious. I understood the characters after the second or third flashback, or other attempts to get me to understand. Became filler after a while. I really got tired of the Dalinar flashbacks in particular. Some were good, but too many had little point.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I love a good long book, but this was long without reason. Tedious is the best word I can use to describe it.

Which character – as performed by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading – was your favorite?

Kaladin is by far the best character, and Michael does his usual fantastic job. Kate Reading is such a perfect pairing in with MIchael. I really enjoy all her characters, but she really nailed Shallan in particular.

Do you think Oathbringer needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I'm getting a bit tired of the seemingly endless layers of magic and universes. It gets to the point that nothing is impossible or final. No boundaries are no fun. No more books required for me.

Any additional comments?

Brandon Sanderson is one of my favourite authors. I was so excited for this next book in the series, but by half way through I just wanted it to get to the point. I've listened to longer books and didn't want them to end, but not this one. Once again, tedious.

I probably would not have been so harsh on other authors, but Brandon Sanderson is one of the best there is. HIs bar is higher for me. Sorry, Mr. Sanderson.

Journey before destination...

Brandon Sanderson finally delivered Oathbringer, the highly anticipated third entry in the Stormlight Archive, and amazingly this volume is even bigger than the first two. As the books get bigger so does the scope of the story being told and that is almost hard to believe. Each of these books would be an entire series for many other authors and the truly amazing part is that Sanderson has 7 more entries planned before he is done. This book focuses on Dalinar Kholin and the events throughout his past that shaped the man he has become. Dalinar bears the nickname Blackthorn and it is time to learn why that is.

Although Dalinar is the focus of this book, all of the main characters return and many new ones are introduced. Now that the Parshendi have summoned the Everstorm, all of Roshar is under threat and Dalinar seeks to unite the various factions together in order to survive the wrath of the Parshmen. They escaped their millennia of slavery in book two and they want to take back what they believe to be rightfully theirs. Dalinar tries to lead the defense from Urithiru, but unfortunately for him, the reputation that earned him the nickname Blackthorn comes back to haunt him.

The scope of the story once again expands significantly and this is the first time in the series that I started to worry about that fact. At this point I am invested in the existing characters and although they all still play significant roles, things have gotten so big that I wish I could spend more time with Kaladin and the men of Bridge Four than learning about the next level of story being told. The first two books of the series were the best fantasy I have ever read, but I must sadly say this one felt a little bloated. The flashbacks that explain Dalinar's past are all excellent but the larger story took center stage and the characters that I wanted to spend time were reduced to cogs in a big machine. More Bridge Four and less Shadesmar please.

The story continues to be read by Michael Kramer and Kate Reading and that makes listening an extremely enjoyable way to experience this amazing story. Despite the fact that this is the weakest of the three books so far it is still the work of a master and a must listen. Book 4 is supposed to focus on Eshonai and is due in 2020.

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!

Fantasy aller erster Güte

Die Reihe "stormlight archives" ist für mich eine der besten fantasy Reihen jemals. Die Figuren sind so stimmig und wunderbar aufgebaut, dass ich mich darauf gefreut habe, endlich wieder etwas über sie zu hören. Als wären sie alte Freunde, von denen man einen Brief erhält. Auch die Charakterentwicklung ist realistisch langsam aber nichts destotrotz teilweise drastisch. Ich habe viel gelacht und war anderer Stelle den Tränen nahe. Ich empfehle zuerst Warbreaker zu hören, da man sich über einige Parallelen freuen kann. Davon abgesehen ist Michael Kramer ein Gott im Lesen.

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.

story? what story?

Unfortunately this book is a boring collection of day-to-day events surrounding the heroes of the stormlight archive books. However, I stopped listening halfway through the third part of the audiobook because there was no apparent plot to the story. I fear that this is another example of an excellent trilogy being expanded into a 5+ books cycle due to commercial reasons.

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.

Chaotic

Sanderson tried too much. While the first volumes of the series were of an exceptional quality, he ruined it all with part 5. This is not a story anymore. This is a chaotic collection of observations. Won‘t buy part 6, if any.
