Review- Words of Radiance (The Stormlight Archive Book #2)

word of radiance book

Words of Radiance is the second book in Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive series. It’s a fantastic adventure story with many interesting characters and places. If you have read the first book, The Way of Kings, then this is the next exciting chapter in that story. And if you enjoyed the first book, then you’re in for a treat with this one!

Now, if you’ve been keeping up with the series, meaning you read the first book and are following along, this new book is turning things up a notch. The story gets even more interesting, and the world the characters live in becomes even more detailed and bigger. The depth and complexity of the narrative become richer and more complicated in a good way.

Brandon Sanderson, the author, is good at telling stories. In the second book, he combines many different storylines and character stories. He’s connecting the dots to make an exciting picture. The main characters you meet in the first book are Kaladin Stormblessed, Shallan Davar, and Dalinar Kholin. If you liked the first book, you’ll be happy because these characters keep growing and changing in the new book. It’s like watching them go on exciting adventures, and you feel for them because their stories are so touching.

So, when we say multiple plotlines, we mean there are many different exciting parts of the story happening at the same time. Character arcs and the journey or story of each main character. Sanderson does this well, and it makes the book interesting because you get to see the world through different characters’ eyes.

Brandon Sanderson is like a careful builder. He doesn’t miss a thing when he’s creating this imaginary world. You know how when you build something with LEGO, each piece fits perfectly? Sanderson does that with the world in the story. Every chapter you read adds more to what you know about the history (the past events), the different cultures (how people live and do things), and the mysteries (things we don’t understand yet) in this make-believe place called Roshar.

In the second book, like in many big fantasy stories, there are times when things get really tense and there’s a lot of disagreement. It’s not all smooth and calm. The important things at stake are even bigger, and there’s this scary thing called the Desolation that makes everything feel really urgent.

The mix of different things happening at the same time. In the story, you’ve got political intrigue (which means tricky politics and power struggles), cosmic mysteries (big, mysterious things about the universe), and personal struggles (the characters dealing with their own problems). All these things mix together to create a really interesting and kind of complicated story.

if you’ve been reading The Stormlight Archive series since the start, Words of Radiance is a really satisfying and enjoyable next part of the big adventure. Brandon Sanderson is really good at telling stories, and in this book, the characters keep growing and the story gets even more interesting.
