A Book Review: The Way of the Kings

Title: The Way of the Kings
Author: Brandon Sanderson
Genre: Fantasy
Length: 1008

Quality Rating: 9
Content Rating: PG-13

Yes, 1008 pages is long, but trust me, it's worth the read. Dive into a world of intricate magics, ancient promises broken, enemies unknown, lords searching for long lost answers, men striving for the life they once had, and women desperately seeking the truth. I fell in love with the characters as we explored their journey, whether it was on the Shattered Plains or in ancient libraries. Brandon Sanderson lives up to his promise and delivers a story worth reading, for every one of the 1008 pages. I can't wait until the next book comes out! (The Lord knows how long we'll have to wait, since he's still got to finish The Wheel of Time).

This book gets a PG-13 rating for fantasy violence, some rather cruel military slavery, and lots of death. But other than that, it's pretty clean. No cursing. No sexual content. However, the book does center around a war so violence is expected.
