The Sandersonian Institute of Cosmere Studies

Apr 10, 2024

As the release of The Stormlight Archive Book 5: Wind and Truth draws ever closer, the SICS crew is continuing their reread of The Stormlight Archive to get ready for it!

In this episode, Jordan, Amy, and Bill take a look back at Words of Radiance and remember some of the highlights, as well as point out things that they've picked up on since our last discussion years ago. A lot's happened in the Cosmere since then, so we've got a lot more context to fill out the discussion!
