I loved the book so much as well that I went out and purchased it to support Sanderson. But The Way of Kings is currently my favorite book, being closely followed by the Mistborn series
That was great when he released a copy of Warbreaker for free. Sanderson is an author well worth supporting by buying his books.
Also, if anyone is interested in lighter fair, check out his Alcatraz young adult series. They have another inventive magic system and are very funny (although not everyone appreciates his type of humor).
just to keep it alive and bump. Way of Kings is epic. Probably will get a series one day, like GoT, as long as he introduces more sex and keeps up with the violence.
Ya, not going to happen. Sanderson is pretty conservative and frankly I'm glad his books don't have a bunch of sex scenes. IMO, an author or movie director introduces sex when they can't come up with a good story.
I've read it twice hardback and it is an awesome book. Sanderson's best so far. Got it on amazon for my third time around.
I'm waiting to read it a third time right before book 2 is released. Probably my all time favorite fantasy book. Mistborn is right up there too.
For the folks like me not impressed by the Wheel of Time (I think it's terrible) - don't get scared off. Sanderson is pretty good.
Just read Elantris and the Mistborn books last year. He's a bit more of an exciting / story writer more than a character-driven writer - despite this his characterizations are good. Mistborn, to me, reads like watching a CLAMP anime - with characters jumping through the air, fighting, and doing fantastic/crazy things. I hadn't gotten around to reading this one though.
I disagree on best modern fantasy writer BTW. IMO that's Robin Hobb (aka Megan Lindholm), as I'm a huge fan. GRR Martin is at #2 for me (assuming that he actually finishes Ice & Fire).
I'll pick this up for $2.99 from B&N since there's no DRM (I almost never buy DRM'd ebooks). Tor has gotten smart with this.
