What is Stormlight Archive – The Way of Kings Audiobook?
The Way of Kings Audiobook is the first audiobook of The Stormlight Archive Audiobook epic fantasy series written by American author Brandon Sanderson. With this audiobook, Brandon Sanderson, widely acclaimed for his work completing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time saga, begins a grand cycle of his own.
The result of over ten years of planning, writing, and world-building, The Way of Kings Audiobook is what I call a masterpiece. The world Sanderson created is unique, complex and fascinating. The characters are multilayered and so well developed you will feel invested in their stories.
Stormlight Archive – The Way of Kings Audiobook free was so fantastic that I don’t think I can write a review without gushing too much about it, so I just going to keep it simple. This audiobook is one you NEED to listen, go, do it now. Is that enough? No? You greedy people!
What is the story?
Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter.
It has been centuries since the fall of the 10 consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Wars were fought for them, and won by them. One such war rages on the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin has been reduced to slavery. In a war that makes no sense, where 10 armies fight separately against a single foe, he struggles to save his men and to fathom the leaders who consider them expendable.
Brightlord Dalinar Kholin commands one of those other armies. Like his brother, the late king, he is fascinated by an ancient text called The Way of Kings. Troubled by visions of ancient times and the Knights Radiant, he has begun to doubt his own sanity.
Across the ocean, an untried young woman named Shallan seeks to train under an eminent scholar and notorious heretic, Dalinar’s niece, Jasnah. Though she genuinely loves learning, Shallan’s motives are less than pure. As she plans a daring theft, her research for Jasnah hints at secrets of the Knights Radiant and the true cause of the war.
Why should you listen to The Way of Kings Audiobook free?
I’m pretty sure reading The Way of Kings must be a very nice experience, but listening to it it’s something else, it was simply perfection. This audiobook is made of awesomeness! I know it’s long (45 hours, 37 minutes), but it’s so good you won’t feel the time passing, so much that for three days in a row I went to bed after 4 in the morning listening to it. I just couldn’t stop listening. Instead of one more chapter, it was 10 more minutes, 10 more minutes… It’s been a long time since I’ve been so entangled in a story.
Kate Reading and Michael Kramer do an excellent job bringing to life the many characters that compose The Way of Kings Audiobook. Before starting this audiobook I knew they were going to do a good job; this is not my first time listening to audiobooks narrated by them, but I just have forgotten how good they really are, and now, I can’t help but feel amazed by their talent.
