Words of Radiance

The Stormlight Archive, Book 2

The eagerly awaited sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Way of Kings

In the first volume, we were introduced to the remarkable world of Roshar, a world both alien and magical, where gigantic hurricane-like storms scour the surface every few days and life has adapted accordingly. Roshar is shared by humans and the enigmatic, humanoid Parshendi, with whom they are at war. Among those caught up in the conflict are Highprince Dalinar Kholin, who leads the human armies; his neice Jasnah, a renowned scholar; her student Shallan, a brilliant but troubled young woman; and Kaladin, a military slave who, by the books end, was beginning to become the first magically endowed Knight Radiant in centuries.

In Words of Radiance their intertwined stories will continue and, as Sanderson fans have come to expect, develop in unexpected, wonderfully surprising directions. The war with the Parshendi will move into a new, dangerous phase, as Dalinar leads the human armies deep into the heart of the Shattered Plains in a bold attempt to finally end it. Shallan will come along, hoping to find the legendary, perhaps mythical, city of Urithuru, which Jasnah believes holds a secret vital to mankinds survival on Roshar. The Parshendi take a dangerous step to strengthen themselves for the human challenge, risking the return of the fearsome Voidbringers of old. To deal with it all, Kaladin must learn how to fulfill his new role, while mastering the powers of a Windrunner.

With this second book, the Stormlight Archive grows even more richly immersive and compelling. Sanderson's fans, old and new, are likely to lift it at least as high on the bestseller lists as its predecessor.

on 24/3/14

Words of Radiance foca principalmente em quatro personagens principais, Shallan, Kaladin, Dalinar e Adolin. Apesar do romance conter muitos outros personagens importantes (somando-se aos novos que são apresentados nos “interlúdios” entre cada uma das partes do Words of Radiance) , os focos narrativos dos dois primeiros livros foram em Kaladin e Shallan. Cada um teve cerca de 150 mil (600 páginas ) palavras dentro das 400 mil (1088 páginas) palavras em média de cada tomo. É praticame... leia mais
