“There are four whom we watch. The first is the surgeon, forced to put aside healing to become a soldier in the most brutal war of our time. The second is the assassin, a murderer who weeps as he kills. The third is the lair, a young woman who wears a scholar’s mantle over the heart of a thief. The last is the highprince, a warlord whose eyes have opened to the past as his thirst for battle wanes.
The world can change. Surgebinding and Shardwielding can return; the magics of ancient days can become ours again. These four people are key.
One of them may redeem us.
And one of them will destroy us.”
First of all, excuse me Mr. Sanderson, who do you think you are putting cryptic messages on the back of the dust jacket? Nobody reads the back of the book. It’s just there for critical appraise! You jerk face!
Second of all, so maybe Kaladin, Szeth, Shallan or Dalinar will save the world. But it’s a definite that one of these four will destroy the world. That’s concerning.
