It's Nov. 17th! Rhythm of War is Out!


If you're reading that is because it is midnight Eastern time on November 17th, which means Rhythm of War is out! Well, at least digitally, in some time zones, probably! It's always a little weird when ebooks get released. Regardless, this is where we have decided as a website (and Discord server) that full book spoilers are now allowed in the designated spoiler area on the forums, the spoiler channels on Discord, and the Coppermind. Please check out our Rhythm of War and Dawnshard Spoiler Policy topic. 

If you'd like to liveblog your reactions on the forums, we have topics for each part of the book, where you can post your reactions just for a single part, without being spoiled for later portions of the book: Part One Reactions, Part Two Reactions, Part Three Reactions, Part Four Reactions. Of course, when you finish, we also have a Full Book Reactions topic. 

Feel free to make your own topics (but keep spoilers out of topic titles), and to help out, we have introduced [Support] and [Discuss] topic tags that you may use.  Sometimes when you post a thread, you’d like some in-depth discussion, getting into the meat of the topic, maybe even constructive criticism. Other times, though, you’re just wanting to express excitement about an idea (or disliking a thing) without having to get into the weeds of disagreement and cross-examination. Both are valid and important types of conversations! But it can be hard to tell sometimes what a poster’s intentions are, so now you have these [Support] and [Discuss] tags at your disposal. Please note we have dedicated RoW Character Discussion and RoW Lore, Cosmere, and Mechanics boards too, so please book character-specific discussion and mechanics discussions in those boards. Hopefully that, along with the [Support] and [Discuss] tags, make it much easier than Oathbringer's release to keep track of topics you're interested in.

On our Discord server, you may use either #row-spoilers or #row-magic-mechanics for full book discussion. As you read you may also use #tagged-spoilers-only for live reactions, but you'll need to spoiler flag what specific chapter or part you're on. The #shardcast channel may also have spoilers when we create content for the book. Check out Rhythm of War and Dawnshard Spoiler Policy for more details.

Lastly, full book information could be on the Coppermind now, so I wouldn't check out Recent Changes in the next few days. We'll get articles that could possibly have spoilers with a spoiler flag on the top. However, the previous book summary pages (The Way of Kings, Words of Radiance, Oathbringer) won't have spoilers for new stuff at all.

Still waiting on your book? We feel you there! Check our sample chapter index, which has all the chapters of Part One linked, along with Brandon's annotations. If you haven't checked out those out, you can now and get a head start by the time your book arrives.

And, if you're feeling a bit out of the loop with Roshar, check out our primer series that is Rhythm of War spoiler-free, which should hopefully catch you up on things for the new book! We also have this sweet map of Roshar that has spoilers up through Oathbringer, but won't have Rhythm of War spoilers for a while, which might help you recall things!

Enjoy the book! We hope you'll join us for discussion. We'll have a new Shardcast with Rhythm of War content (but not full book spoilers) on Wednesday, so stay tuned for that!

Is anyone else having an issue with the Audible version? I submitted a help email to Amazon Audible. It says 0 parts and so will download nothing!  The Kindle version works without a problem.

Oh boy, I've had it at home for five days now, but I started in earnest yesterday. After a hundred pages this already feels very different from Oathbringer. I have to say that trying to read slowly and deliberately but fighting the constant urge to rush through pages is quite the struggle. I'm totally not used to dealing with something I had anticipated for so long...

Audible is working but I don’t believe it ever downloaded, just streaming. But working is working!

Not a spoiler: Barely into Part 2, and I’ve decided that when Veil cheats on Adolin with Kaladin, Adolin won’t be too broken up. He’ll have realized he’s gay by then and come out of the metaphorical closet. Not the literal closet, mind. That boy will never abandon his wardrobe!

I am too.  Not completely sure what's happening.

I am too. I'm glad it's not just my computer.

Hopefully they get it up and going soon...

Anyone else have a printing error in their copy? Chapters 12 and 13 have been replaced with duplicates of chapters 16 and 17. It goes 11-16-17-14-15-16-17...

I do want to discuss.  But still not done with part 2 yet.  The whole day went by with work.  Will peek back in when part 2 is done to post in that thread.
