"Oathbringer" (Stormlight Book 3) Published Today

Today is a big day for fans of fantasy - Oathbringer, the third book in Brandon Sanderson's 10-book Stormlight series is published today.

Sanderson is one of the best new(er) authors in fantasy, proving himself with a strong debut (Elantris) the Mistborn series, and now with Stormlight. The first two books, The Way of Kings and Words of Radiance, have both been well-received.

The Stormlight series is a different type of fantasy, with immense world-building and lore. It is the spiritual successor to The Wheel of Time series. They are both apples and oranges, however Stormlight follows down the path that The Wheel of Time began. They are not related by any means, I mean to say that the vein of fantasy is close. Please note that you can't (and shouldn't) compare Sanderson with Martin, or Stormlight with Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones.

So whether or not you've read The Wheel of time, if you like fantasy period, be sure not to miss the Stormlight series. Book 4 is expected in 2020.
