The Way of Kings audiobook begins a new saga of epic proportion
“Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.”
The Way of Kings audiobook‘s plot: Roshar is a stone and storm-filled world. Unnatural tempests of immense force rage across the rocky landscape so regularly that they have changed both environment and culture. Animals conceal themselves in shells, trees retract their branches, and grass retracts into the soilless earth. Cities are only created where the geography provides shelter.
The ten dedicated orders known as the Knights Radiant have fallen centuries ago, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: supernatural swords and sets of armor that convert ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men barter kingdoms in exchange for Shardblades. Wars were fought and won on their behalf.
One such conflict is raging on the Shattered Plains, a destroyed area. Kaladin, who sacrificed his medical apprenticeship for a spear in order to protect his younger brother, has been forced to slavery there. In an absurd conflict in which 10 armies fight independently against a single opponent, he strives to preserve his soldiers and understand the leaders who regard them as expendable.
One of the armies is led by Brightlord Dalinar Kholin. He, like his late brother, is enthralled with an old treatise known as The Way of Kings. Overwhelming images of ancient times and the Knights Radiant have caused him to question his own sanity.
Across the ocean, an untried young lady called Shallan aspires to train under Dalinar’s niece, Jasnah, a famous scholar and notorious heretic. Shallan’s motivations are less than pure, despite her genuine enthusiasm for learning. As she plots a daring heist, her investigation for Jasnah reveals Knights Radiant secrets and the actual reason of the conflict. […]
