In Oathbringer 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 p...more

My Kaladin/Shallan print is so beautiful! It’s in a frame on my wall now!
CHECK OUT MY FREAKING PICTURES AFTER THE GIFS Y'ALL! OMG! ♥
Let simply start with the book itself before I show the freaking freaking freaking awesome inside pictures and map on the dust jacket! I'm am freaking happy!
I got the pre-order from Audible BUT I was waiting to read this beautiful book and listen at the same time. ♥

It’s not an exaggeration to say that my expectations regarding Oathbringer were extremely hard to contain. I had heard a lot of fantastic things about this series the first time I went through The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance last year, but I read through them many years after their original release dates. Oathbringer is a different experience in terms of environment and surrounding h ...more
Part 1 was passable. Part 2 was watered by too many unnecessary PoVs. Part 3 was watered by too many sub-plots and not enough interaction between characters. Part 4 didn’t manage to pick up the pace. Part 5 tried to squish so many events it became chaotic.
The plot takes over characters and they are like leafs in the storm. The ...more
Finishing Oathbringer was both a satisfaction and a disappointment. Satisfying because this book was absolutely astonishing in every way that I expected it to be. Disappointing because I wanted it to be longer (even though it's almost 1300 pgs and it took me over two weeks to finish it).
What can I really say about Oathbringer? Questions that I have waited years for answers were finally answered, all of my favorite characters were amazing as usual and Sanderson still keeps on developi ...more

“You cannot have my pain”
I am so sorry this review is a month late! With the holidays and the start of this new year, my life has just been a little hectic to write a review that does this amazing book and series justice! But hopefully this will sing even an ounce of the praise that this epic fantasy series deserves, because this third installment was nothing ...more
So Storming good and special. I'm utterly ready for Dawnshard and Rhythm of War.
That Storming genius has outdone himself. Again!
Words of Radiance was easily the best book I've ever read, which naturally resulted in some pretty high expectations going into Oathbringer. As much as I've tried to dampen it after waiting for over 3.5 years, I just had to accept that it was futile.
Who am I ...more
I adore the first two books in this series beyond words and that may even be an understatement. I mean, Words of Radiance is one of the best books I have ever read and an absolute favourite of mine, so when I say Oathbringer had big shoes to fill, we’re talking BIG shoes. It’s sometimes unfair to a book to have to live up to such expectations, as when they fail to live up to them it’s often a product of over-hype as the cause of the failure, when in fact, the book is brillia ...more
Some parts of the story moved me to tears and taught valuable lessons. Sanderson did an extraordinary job of world-building and characterization. Each character was so unique and incredible. Rich and a complex world! So real! loved that each book truly ended in a fulfilling way. Yet this is an epic fantasy…and it’s not over yet.
To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important...more
And now, on to my...

A full five stars to Oathbringer and nothing less. If you’ve read the two previous volumes in the Stormlight Archive, you’d probably already understand; this series is a masterful, meticulous continuation into the journey to explore the mysterious world of Roshar, and once again this third installment is revealing so much more about our characters and their roles in this epic tableau. I find myself speechless, as I often a ...more
So, if you’re reading this and wondering if you should dive into this series despite the fact that there are rumors (as yet uncorroborated, though we’re working on it) that OJ ...more
Upon rereading Oathbringer, not only am I still blown away by it, I actually love it even more. It’s a rare book that grows and deepens and improves when revisited, but Sanderson has a knack for churning out such fiction. His intricate plotting, superb pacing, insane world building, fathomless character development, and impeccable attention to detail are all second to none. Is it any wonder he’s in my top three favorite authors? Below is my original review of Oathbringer. I can’ ...more
This was amazing.
I thought it was going to be hard to top the first two doorstoppers, but this one not only outdid the others in page-count but also in the quality of the storytelling. Every aspect of it was brilliant.
I'm not usually one to gush on and on about epic fantasies. Most are pretty okay and I can slog through and eventually enjoy certain ones like GoT all right, but a few really manage to jump right out there and grab you with character, world-building, and overall story wit ...more
5 "Sometimes a hypocrite is nothing more than a person who is in the process of changing" Stars
Spoiler Free Section:
I always feel like I get more when I read a Sanderson book. Not only is the story fantastic but the book itself is always beautiful. The art inside the book, maps and the cover jacket are always exquisite and make owning the hardback a necessity. Then there is the audio which is always well performed and makes something this size even mor ...more
*** 4.75 ***
This book was all about accepting the journey and the multitude of faults and falls it consists of, rather than look at where it has gotten you and what the destination was to begin with... The first book was the journey of Kaladin, the second Shallan's, and this one is all about Dalinar, the Blackthorn! I might write a review, eventually, when I am more capable of gathering all my thoughts, but for now I just need to say - READ THIS SERIES! IT IS AWESOME!!!
"...“You are not a here ...more
As for this book specifically, it was a terrific ride. We learned more about the history of Roshar and the desolations and we got some big developments in the current situation. There were also some great characters arcs. Shalla ...more
First of all, this is NOT a review. There are plenty of well-spoken, coherent people in here who can give this book the justice it deserves far better than I can. This is me incoherently recounting my emotional state while I was reading it.
WOW. So freaking much happened that I don't even know where to begin. It all started out well and mellow. There were lighthearted funny moments and all around ‘’calm’’-ish (well, as calm as can be expected) atmosphere as the ...more
I'm honestly just struck speechless. And like why am I even surprised?? It's Sanderson. No words will ever be enough to convey the emotional journey I had with Oathbringer. There cannot be a journey without a beginning—and it truly shows.
“I will take responsibility for what I have done. If I must fal...more
**UPDATE: Because ever since I read this book it has completely wrecked me from making significant progress on anything else. It's the sign of a great book when a month and three other books can pass, and your mind is still trapped by this one. Read at your own risk 😭😭😭😭.**
“The question is not whether you will love, hurt, dream, and die. It is what you will love, why you will hurt, when you will dream, and how you will die. This is you...more
"Having power is a terrible burden, the worst thing imaginable, except for every other alternative."
Power and its burden seems to be a major theme in Oathbringer, which features a number of exciting and frustrating developments in its 1200 pages. (The most frustrating revelation of all is the fact that we will be waiting until 2020 at least for the fourth installment.)
Every Stormlight Archive volume is a character study of a different Knight Radiant; first Kaladin, then Shallan, and now Dali ...more
Actually, I think I'll take that half star 🙂
When I reread I want to discover things I missed the first time that help me understand the plot and characters but what happened is I asked even more unanswerable questions about the choices Sanderson made here.
3.5 I guess.
Well if this isn't the biggest disappointment of the year then... Then I have s ...more
If this book was written by any other author I probably would have given it 5 stars, but to me this book isn't quite as good as the other two books in the series, so I'm docking it a half star.
The worldbuilding continues to impress and remains one of my all-time favorite achievements in this arena. The characters are wonderful, and there isn't a single POV that I don't look forward to reading more ...more
YOU GUYS WE HAVE A COVER!! THE UK COVER IS PERFECTION! P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N! I want to cry endlessly! This series is probably the best fantasy story out there and I CANNOT WAIT TO REREAD THE FIRST TWO BOOKS AGAIN! I still remember how I felt reading them! FUCKIN GLORIOUS!
