Oathbringer Part 2 - Brandon Sanderson

To love the journey is to accept no such end. I have found, through painful experience, that the most important step a person can take is always the next one.

~ Spoilers for Oathbringer Part 1 ~

Oathbringer Part 2 is the second part of the third book of The Stormlight Archive series by Brandon Sanderson, first published in 2017. As Dalinar tried to make the union between Roshar kingdoms work, the awoken Parshmen were organizing themselves under the directions of mysterious sprens and Fuseds, ancient singers that was reborn through the Everstorm. The effort proved to be even more burdening as a certain forgotten memory from his past came back slowly to him. Meanwhile, Elhokar, accompanied by Kaladin, Shallan, and Adolin, flew to Kholinar in an attempt to help the capital city from Voidbringers attack and save his wife and son.

This is it! This is the best of the three books that I've read, and I love all of them. After Kaladin and Shallan took the center of the stage of the previous books, Dalinar finally gets his due and it was glorious! My complain about his lack of involvement on the book's predecessors finally paid off with an amazing tale of loss and redemption. Dalinar Kholin is yet another case of Sanderson's amazing character writing. The author really pushed everyone over the edges in this book; breaking every character, not just Dalinar, slowly and thoroughly.

There's also a big twist that completely flips the moral battle between human and Parshmen for good. I really wonder where the story will go from here on because of it.

Things are getting more and more epic each book. Can't wait to read the fourth one!
