The Way of Kings

Book One of the Stormlight Archive
The Stormlight Archive: Book #1
By Brandon Sanderson
Narrated by Kate Reading & Michael Kramer /  45 hours 26 minutes

The Way of Kings

“I have a love of hefty fantasy, partnered with a lack of the time usually needed to invest into the genre. The Way of Kings is the peak of everything that has made fantasy my go-to genre for enjoyment, and my ability to proclaim it as such lay directly with the audiobook. Reading and Kramer deliver the world with a clear poise, and give shape to the phenomenon Sanderson evokes within his description. A masterful novel by itself, The Way of Kings and its audiobook reading are perfect examples of literary mutualism.”
