  1. I believe that Shallan is a Lightweaver. (Not a Dustbringer). Lightweavers are Garnet (red).
  2. Ohhhh. I had not thought about this before. What a very interesting idea. I wonder if her eyes only turn red when she is using/accessing her powers — then she would always have enough Stormlight to “cover them up” even if it was unconsciously. If they permanently turned red there are too many times that she doesn’t have Stormlight access that her red eyes would have been noticed. It is also possible that she needs to progress further in her powers, or they would turn red in Shadesmar but not in the physical realm? But I don’t recall an eye color difference in OB at all. I doubt soul casting would be different from lightweaving — but it’s possible. I can’t imagine Hoid having red eyes. Do we know for sure that Shallan’s mom saw Shallan with red eyes? I just finished re-reading WoR and don’t recall that at all. But I could have missed it. What a great observation.
  3. After reading the interlude from Syl’s perspective in the newsletter yesterday and seeing some of the cover art that shows Shadesmar I am even more convinced now that the Point of View Characters will be a Venli/Eshonai/Timbre Trio. Writing from a spren’s perspective is new for Brandon and we are already familiar with Timbre. Since he shared the Syl chapter I am now convinced we will see more Spren viewpoints.
  4. I thought that this was the Willshapers book, and it just so happened that the Willshaper is a Singer.
  5. So I Have yet to finish Reading this entire thread, but I agree with you — that we will hear from Venli, Eshonai, And a third mystery character that we not previously had a POV from. My guess to who this third mystery character may be is a Spren. I would love to read something from Syl, Glys, Maya, Ivory, or another Spren. (Although I don’t think I could believe/trust anything that Pattern said/wrote). What if the new POV character was Timbre? I believe Venli/Eshonai/Timbre trio would make a fantastic and interesting POV.
  6. @Ripheus23 So I’ve been pondering what the 5th book would be named as well and I was certain that KoW would be Knights of Something — But after reading your post I’m really liking Killer — but I also think that Szeth was only a killer when he was Truthless, and he’s not that anymore. He loathes killing. If it was killer it would have to be about Moash or Skar. I’m guessing that since Brandon Sanderson was originally thinking about keteking the titles — that hopefully he has a good idea of what book 5 will be called. I think it’s awesome that he is keteking the initials of the book. I also think that the 5th book will be named after an in world book written by a shin. I’m sure what ever the name is — it will be brilliant.
  7. @Paleo That wasn’t what I wanted to hear but I think you are correct. I’ll need to pledge twice under two different accounts. What a pain, but I think that will be the only way to get what both me and my son want.
  8. Thank you for this information. It gives me time to budget! So excited! If I want to order two leatherbounds (one for me and one for my son) will I get two slipcovers (if they are unlocked) and two choice of two different types of knights radiant? And two of all the other stretch goals? I want those Wit pins and playing cards. I’m assuming yes, but I want to double check. The last time I ordered two leatherbounds from BYU bookstore I got screwed because I ordered two together. I would have been better off ordering them separately under two different accounts. *So is it per tier that you get the stretch goals or per backer?* I hope that this information is clear when the official Kickstarter information is posted on Brandon’s site. I need to know if I should create a second Kickstarter account. I just finished re-reading WoK and I love it more and more each time I pick it up.
  9. So I just finished Starsight and here are a few of the initial questions I want to know the answers to now!!!! 1.) The real Alanik. What will happen to her? she has to live. Will she help Spensa in some way in the future? I see Spensa, Alanik, and Jorgan plus some others forming a cytonic flight together, each with different specializations. Maybe Alanik does have a colony of humans in her planet like Vapor theorized. I hope we get to see the UrDail planet and more of her people. Perhaps Spensa will resurface there because MBot can send them messages. I wish we would have gotten one more update on her — even if she was still in a coma. 2.) Jorgan sensing the Slugs. I keep wondering how in the stars do the slugs know where to hyper jump to? Someone must communicate their desired destination to them somehow. How are they kept? It sounds like Jorgan is on his way to becoming the Slug Specialist. 3.) Delver’s don’t like AI, and MBot just entered the nowhere. That doesn’t sound like a good mix. I think Spensa will be fine in the nowhere — but will MBot? 4.) Mortimer will likely lay low for book three then come back in book 4 and save the day. I thought their ability to be two people was fascinating. When will Mortimer grow up? 5.) I’m wondering when and where Gul’zah of the burl gorilla will show up? He and Spensa seem to think alike and they will probably help each other escape the nowhere. I like how Sanderson uses gorilla & Gul’zah together. It helps me remember what character is what. 6.) What is a life span of a slug and how do they reproduce? Does hyper jumping change or influence their lifespan? Can they power any ship? Or do they bond to one ship and can only power the one ship? Again? How do they know where to jump to?
  10. @Mason Wheeler Barnes & Noble officially opens at 9am. I’m hoping they let us in a bit before that like they have done in previous years. It is 5:30am now and there are about 15 people in line. Make sure you sign the clipboard when you get here. Some people ordered more than one copy of the book so your book number may be higher than your actual place in line. it is quite cold so bring a chair, a blanket to sit on, as well as a blanket or two to put over you and wrap up in and block the wind. Also remember a hat and gloves. Even if you get here at 9am you will be standing outside for a bit as they work through the line. see you soon.
  11. For those who are interested. So there are 9 people in line right now. The first person arrived at 7:30am Monday Morning!!!! (I’m number 7). I decided to brave the cold and the icy streets. It’s in the 20’s and somewhat windy — but no precipitation. The roads were treacherous leaving my neighborhood but once I got on to the main streets they were fine. I-15 was wet in Lehi & American Fork but interstate was dry before I hit Orem. There were no problems with the roads at all after getting off I-15 at University Parkway.
  12. Please update us on the line once you get there.
  13. For those who preordered on kindle, my copy of Starsight just came down. Still trying to get it downloaded on Audible.
  14. I was wondering the same thing. I was planning on getting in line tonight but it is so cold and windy right now, that I am fearful of my health if I sleep outside in this snowstorm. I think I just may come in the morning. I recently drove to our local highschool and slid at all four stop signed between my house and the school. Not very safe driving conditions either. I hope everyone stays safe!
