Brandon Sanderson’s The Stormlight Archive sequence began in 2010 with the
Radiance continues the epic story and answers many of your questions.
Six years ago, the Assassin in White, a hireling of the inscrutable Parshendi,
assassinated the Alethi king on the very night a treaty between men and
Parshendi was being celebrated. So began the Vengeance Pact among the
highprinces of Alethkar and the War of Reckoning against the Parshendi.
Now the Assassin is active again, murdering rulers all over the world of
Roshar, using his baffling powers to thwart every bodyguard and elude all
pursuers. Among his prime targets is Highprince Dalinar, widely considered
the power behind the Alethi throne. His leading role in the war would seem
reason enough, but the Assassin’s master has much deeper motives.
Expected by his enemies to die the miserable death of a military slave,
Kaladin survived to be given command of the royal bodyguards, a
controversial first for a low-status «darkeyes.» Now he must protect the
king and Dalinar from every common peril as well as the distinctly
uncommon threat of the Assassin, all while secretly struggling to master
remarkable new powers that are somehow linked to his honorspren, Syl.
Brilliant but troubled Shallan strives along a parallel path. Despite
being broken in ways she refuses to acknowledge, she bears a terrible
burden: to somehow prevent the return of the legendary Voidbringers and
the civilization-ending Desolation that will follow. The secrets she needs
can be found at the Shattered Plains, but just arriving there proves more
difficult than she could have imagined.
Meanwhile, at the heart of the Shattered Plains, the Parshendi are making
an epochal decision. Hard pressed by years of Alethi attacks, their
numbers ever shrinking, they are convinced by their war leader, Eshonai,
to risk everything on a desperate gamble with the very supernatural forces
they once fled. The possible consequences for Parshendi and humans alike,
indeed, for Roshar itself, are as dangerous as they are incalculable.
