The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

It has been over a thousand years since Aharietiam, the devastating event known as the Last Desolation, and the kingdoms of Roshar have grown and prospered. But peace and prosperity have a price and neither will last forever.

A new storm is coming one that will see the return of the monstrous Voidbringers and herald the destruction of a new Desolation.

Brave men and women must step forward to stand against the coming devastation. Oaths must be remembered, bonds must be forged, and the ancient words must be said again:

“Life before death.

Strength before weakness.

Journey before destination.”
