But then the Voidbringers assaulted and captured heaven, casting out God and men. Men took root on Roshar, the world of storms. And the Voidbringers followed ...They came against man ten thousand times. To help them cope, the Almighty gave men powerful suits of armor and mystical weapons, known as Shardblades. Led by ten angelic Heralds and ten orders of knights known as Radiants, mankind finally won.Or so the legends say. Today, the only remnants of those supposed battles are the Shardblades, the possession of which makes a man nearly invincible on the battlefield. The entire world is at war with itself - and has been for centuries since the Radiants turned against mankind. Kings strive to win more Shardblades, each secretly wishing to be the one who will finally unite all of mankind under a single throne.On a world scoured down to the rock by terrifying hurricanes that blow through every few days is a young spearman, forced into the army of a Shardbearer, led to war against an enemy he doesn't understand and doesn't really want to fight. What happened deep in mankind's past? Why did the Radiants turn against mankind, and what happened to the magic they used to wield?

Bear in mind this is part of the first novel, which was split for being too long. The book centers around three central characters Dalinar, Kaladin, and Shallan. Dalinar, is a general plagued by visions and shackled by a promise to his dead King to abide by a code of honor long abandoned by the nobility he has sword to unite under the King’s son. Kaladin is the most classic hero archetype, a bourgeois surgeon’s son turned soldier turned slave, cursed to fail yet constantly finding himself in a position to lead. Shallan, is a young noblewoman whose family has fallen on hard times and who has pledged herself to apprentice with the world’s premier scholar; though her initial intentions are far from noble yet completely understandable.
An excellent book, and I look forward to reading the next part :)
