Indeed! Have you seen the manuscript?



Tor.com have been kind enough (cruel enough?) to provide us with a sample chapter, the interlude. The chapter can be read by readers whether they’ve finished book one of not as it introduces a new character and a new land entirely removed from the plot of The Way of Kings, and stands on its own. Click Here to check it out:

Why yes I have, Overlord. And what a manuscript it is! I know that there is still a way to go before it gets published, but its progress. And on another note, what is your profile picture of?

It sounds like the title of a religious pamphlet one would see being handed out outside a student bar at night. Where the devout feel the need to reach the vulnerable in need of a good cleansing!
So to quote the immortal Homer Simpson; "This isn't going to be about Jesus is it?"

There's a certain sort of irony in your name. ;)

I agree. Men can't sin, that's exclusively a female thing.

That's the mighty Overlord himself. You didn't think he would choose that name if he wasn't able to defend it, did you? ;)

As Xiagan says, it is me kicking someone in the leg in an MMA fight :P

I'm pretty sure it is a religious text, in the context of that world. Just like The Way of Kings was too. Possibly every title in the sequence will be.

I think the title refers to the ideals by which the Knights Radiant used to live.
I am so excited to learn more about the order of the Knights Radiant!!!
