    Interview: Dec, 2010


    1. Are Kaladin's parents still alive, and if so, are they actually mad at him?

    3. Major big RAFO.

    4. Szeth was perceived as betraying his people in a fundamental way, and you will learn more about that when his book comes along.

    Interview: Sep 24th, 2013


    When we get to the interlude in The Way of Kings, where we see the Shinovar merchant, he talks about his guards being different from Truthless. What makes the distinction?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You will find that out in Book 3 which has Szeth's flashback sequences and show him becoming Truthless.

    Interview: Mar 4th, 2014


    Are we going to find out in here, why Szeth and what the Truthless are all about?


    That, you will have to wait for his flashback sequences in a future book. Each character gets a set of flashback sequences. I'm not going to promise that the characters live to the book where their flashback sequences are. You might have a character die and then get their flashbacks the next book to get more information on them. This will be Shallan's flashback, then the next book will be Szeth's flashback, then Eshonai, then Dalinar.

    Interview: Mar 29th, 2014


    Truthless are pretty rare in Shin society?

    Brandon Sanderson



    How did they come by the Dawnshard[I think he and Brandon meant honorblade?] that Szeth got?

    Brandon Sanderson

    They historically kept all of them.


    Does that have anything to do why they think stone is sacred?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You will find out more about that as time progresses
