After completing the late Robert Jordan's acclaimed Wheel of Time saga, author Brandon Sanderson has finally revealed The Way of Kings, book one of his own epic cycle, The Stormlight Archive.

The Way Of Kings introduces the three protagonists who will be our windows into the strange and wondrous world of Roshar: Dalinar, brother to the assassinated king and plagued by dreams of ancient times and legendary wars; Kaladin, a highborn youth brought to the most miserable level of military slavery; and Shallan, a naïve but brave and brilliant young woman who will do anything to save her impoverished noble house from ruin.
