THE WAY OF KINGS (vols 1 and 2) by Brandon Sanderson

Brandon Sanderson has, of course,shot to recent fame as the writer who's been chosen to finish off Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. I have a previous post on that venture.
   My sons told me that The Way of KIngs was worth reading so I gave them a try and I have to say that they are very good. There's a great cas of characters, several plot lines slowly coming to a climax, and the whole thing is well written.
   I don't quite know how long it's all going to be, though. I thought these two volumes were it, but the story clearly has a lo-oo-ong way to go yet. Let's hope that what happened to Wheel of Time doesn't happen to the Way of Kings, and that Brandon finishes before he shuffles off this mortal coil.
