The Stormlight Archive – World of Roshar
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Brandon Sanderson, and I especially love the books of the Cosmere “super-epic” which includes the epic series of Mistborn and the Stormlight Archive (among others). The world-building, characters, and magic systems of these series are nothing less than astounding.
But sometimes it’s a lot to digest, especially for new readers. I’ve recently stumbled upon a great introductory video to the World of Roshar, which is the world features in the Stormlight Archive. Roshar is an incredibly unique fantasy world, with a distinctive ecology and refreshingly rich cultures, different from the typical fantasy-fare.
If you’re a fan of the Stormlight Archive, this could make a good refresher before you dive into the new book, Rhythm of War, which just came out. If you’re not familiar with the Stormlight Archive, this video might compel you to give it a go. There are no spoilers, apart from simply revealing some tidbits of the world, but nothing major and nothing story related.
