From 1 New York Times Bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Words of charisma, The second book in the Stormlight Archive continues the immersive fantasy epic, the The way of kings started.
Expected by his enemies to die the miserable death of a military slave, Kaladin survived to take command of the royal bodyguards – a controversial premiere for a low-status "dark eye". Now he must defend the King and Dalinar from any common danger and the exceptionally unusual Assassin threat, while secretly struggling to master remarkable new powers in some way associated with his Honorary Prince Syl.
The assassin Szeth is again active and murdered rulers in the whole world of Roshar. He uses his amazing powers to thwart any bodyguard and escape all pursuers. His main goals include High Prince Dalinar, who is generally considered the power behind the Alethi throne. His leading role in the war seems reason enough, but the Assassin's master has much deeper motives.
The brilliant but restless Shallan strives for a parallel path. Although broken in a way she does not recognize, she carries a terrible burden: she must somehow prevent the return of the legendary void charms and the civilization-driven devastation that will follow. The secrets she needs can be found in the Shattered Plains, but the arrival there is more difficult than she could have imagined.
Meanwhile, the Parshendi make an epic decision in the heart of the Shattered Plains. The Alethi's years of attacks have put pressure on them, and their numbers are constantly shrinking. They are convinced by their warlord Eshonai of risking everything with the supernatural forces they had once fled from. The possible consequences for Parshendi and the people themselves are as dangerous for Roshar as they are incalculable.
