    Oh wow :blink

    I'm not sure I had an image in my head of what a highstorm looked like. But that is as terrifying as it is majestic.

    Gorgeous isn't it? Brandon's done a few readings from Stormlight 2 that have been transcribed at 17th Shard.

    Also, Brandon has said that he's sent the first draft of book 2 off to the publishers! Exciting!

    I am racking my brain to find some sort of symmetry in the Shattered Plains that may somehow be related to Kabsal's theory. I can't talk myself in to this being a fool's errand.

    Well Kaladin, in his flying vision, said that when he flew above them he saw some symmmetry , I think?

    I love the Way of Kings! Syl us funny and inspiring at the same time. Brandon did a great job in the development of all the characters in this book. the inner conflicts really let the reader into the characters minds and thought process.
    I like all of the characters but my favorites have to be Kaladin and Dalinar, both are probably the greatest men I have ever read about, both have a real conscious and sense of righteousness, I'm excited for the next book. I'm already getting impatient for it.
    I'm not sure if I will join in on the re-read, probably not this time anyway. I'm really focused on getting through the Wheel of time right now. it is a great book though!

    the release for book 2 has actually been pushed back to March (2014), he wanted to have it out by January but editing a book that big is going to take longer.

    That is spectacular Mari! I love the light/dark effect!

    Bummer about the push backed date, but hopefully that means a better end product!

    Winter: what is steelheart?

    Sanderson's newest book. ^^ It's not in the same "cosmere" as his main adult epics, it's a YA post-apocalyptic superhero novel set in our world, start of a new trilogy called The Reckoners. It was so good. :D

    Oh, I didn't realize they will release the Kindle version and Hardback at the same time. Awesome! (Words of Radiance, I mean)
