Notes: Followed by: Words of radiance.
Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests have shaped ecology and civilization. Trees pull in branches, grass retracts into the ground, cities are built only where land offers shelter. It's been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain, mystical swords and suits of armour that transform ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Wars were fought for them. One such war rages on the Shattered Plains. There, Kaladin has been reduced to slavery, and Brightlord Kholin commands one of the armies but is troubled by visions of the Knights Radiant.
