    Ok, I may relent with Laral. She is the girl from his village right?

    Yeah, she is. But

    She was kind of a bitch to Kaladin (probably out of fear for her situation or whatnot, but still)... I don't think he'll forgive that so easily. :\ Knowing how he is, that is.

    I think the second option is more likely. :lol

    Laral is probably irrelevant at this point. I want to see how he handles Roshone. Especially now that he outranks the bastard by a country mile.

    Yeah, I am more afraid that that may lead Syl away from him again :(

    I doubt that. I think Sanderson is done with that particular arc.

    Well, bear in mind that the ten books are split into two five-book arcs, and they won't share main characters (minor characters might became major characters from on to the other, and vice versa)

    Oh. I didn't know that :look

    So, "only" five books about Dalinar and Kaladin specifically then?

    Regarding the books:

    I'm not sure if it's said that the characters will disappear completely? IIRC, book 3 will focus on Szeth and the Skybreakers, book 4 on Eshonai, book 5 on Dalinar and the Bondsmiths. The final five will focus on Jasnah, Lift, Renarin, Taln and Taravangian, in no particular order. That's the latest Words of Brandon, at least. He used to say that Navani, Adolin and another Herald would have a book of their own as well, but it seems he's changed his mind. So I guess he might again, as well.

    The "focus" mainly refers to who will get all the flashbacks, like WoK was Kaladin's and WoR was Shallan's.

    Yay, I'm happy we get to meet Lift and her "Voidbringer" again! She was entertaining and it was interesting how she could get the stormlight from food. :D And I thought she was too good to be a just random interlude character.

    Well how killer was that, totally awesome from beginning to end. I loved every minute of it. Everything I liked about Way of Kings and more.

    burned it up in like a week of reading, busting out as much as I could on my lunchbreaks

    I just about choked on my can of coke when Nightblood turned up :)

    I just hope he doesn't fall prey to every other fantasy book ever made where the age old forgotten stories of the past and how awesome it was and how it was so technologically advanced it was but we get to read about chamber pots and horses for a zillion books.

    That and I felt the characters are a little flat.

    Otherwise, OMG I NEED MORE
