The Way of Kings is the first novel of a new saga – The Stormlight Archives – by Brandon Sanderson (author of the Mistborn trilogy and of the ending volumes of the Robert Jordan saga “The wheel of time”), that by now is planned in ten novels. Below my comment about this first book.
The 300 Spartans fighting for the Termopilis were the main theme of another graphic novel, here the main characters are three slaves escaping from a slaughter and guilt of killing various spartan soldiers.
They are chased by the spartan army that aim to track and kill them.
Unlike 300, this story is a work of fiction, but the context where the characters live is rendered with realism. The story is engaging and full of fights and violence.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
