* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Dalinar was cursed so that he can no longer remember his late wife. Even to the point where he can't quite make out her name when other people say it.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: After Dalinar was cursed so that sought the Old Magic, he can no longer remember his late wife. Even to the point where he can't quite make out her name when other people say it. We have yet to learn whether this was the curse, the blessing, or some combination of the two.

** Parshendi females, if Dalinar's hypothesis of their battle pairs actually being {{Battle Couple}}s is right.

* FictionalDocument: The eponymous''The Way of Kings'' is a book derided as borderline blasphemy by modern Alethi, due in part to such silly ideals as making ''peace'' with your enemies. Jasnah also peruses plenty of these in her pursuit of [[spoiler:information on the true nature of the Voidbringers]].

* AffablyEvil: [[spoiler:Taravingian]]. [[spoiler:Kabsal]] also qualifies.

* CrypticConversation: A strange example. When people die slowly, in such a way that they can still speak at the end, they sometimes spout off a cryptic line that no one understands. [[spoiler:Taravingian is collecting these]], and at least one is [[spoiler:a line from the Lost Herald]]. Another is directly prophetic of an event that happens at the end of ''The Way Of Kings''.

* WellIntentionedExtremist: [[spoiler:Taravingian]]. Sadeas also presents himself as this, though it's very possible this is just how he justifies his personal ambition.

* StableTimeLoop: Maybe. [[spoiler:Can Dalinar ''alter'' the past in his visions, or are they just a sort of interactive memory?]]

The main story picks up after several years of virtual stalemate on the Shattered Plains. Dalinar (Gavilar's younger brother and Elhokar's uncle) is one of the ten highprinces overseeing the war effort. Kaladin is brought into the camp of highprince Sadeas and forced to work as a bridgeman -- the physically punishing and suicidally dangerous job of carrying the bridges used to span gaps between plateaus, even in the face of Parshendi archers. Shallan, away from the Shattered Plain, seeks to become a student of the princess Jasnah (Elhokar's sister and Dalinar's niece), a renowned scholar and infamous heretic against Alethkar's primary religion of Vorinism; however, her ulterior motive is to steal Jasnah's [[MagiTech soulcaster]] (the only such artifact known to be outside the control of the Vorin clergy) and use it to save her impoverished noble house. Meanwhile, Szeth travels across Roshar on the orders of several changing masters, whose orders he is honorbound to obey regardless of how personally loathsome he finds them.
