It has been some time since a book was as riveting. It became harder and harder to put down, making me read until well into the night. A fantastic book that was thrilling even with over 1000 pages. > [!warning]- Spoilers > The battle against the Stormform Parshendi must be one of the most epic fantasy battles I ever read. The scene with the storm was spectacular. > The mysteries of the whole book kept me going. What happened in Shallan's past? What about the spren? Kindle's X-ray allows you to look up all mentions of a name in the book. With some mysterious names only being referred to a couple of times, this was a neat feature. It is fun to start piecing things together. > Overall, a superb read and I can't wait to dig into the next one.
