Rating: 5/5 Stars
Okay, this is finally happening. I’m ranking The Stormlight Archive as my number 1 favorite book series of all time, overtaking the throne previously held by Mistborn trilogy and I don’t think this will ever change. The Gods of Cosmere know how much I love the original Mistborn trilogy but Brandon Sanderson really raised the bar for epic fantasy genre sky high with this series.
“Plots beyond plots, plans beyond plans. There was always another secret”
An epic read, Brandon Sanderson gives you an exhilarating piece of fantasy. It’s a high that you might not ever get over. I don’t think I will.

After finishing The Final Empire (Mistborn, #1) I wrote in my review that I had no idea why Brandon Sanderson didn't leave the story there (with a perfect conclusion), but instead decided to create a trilogy, risking to "degrade" the whole plot. Unfortunately, I was proved right. The Well of Ascension was a poor sequel.
