This chapter is in Sanderson's 'hand'. It's descriptive, as the first few paragraphs of all the main series books are, but moves fairly briskly along, just like...well...like the wind itself.
Other than the omniscient POV, there is only one other in the chapter.
It continues KOD's themes of corruption of reality, health and morals: the land is more Blighted; the dilemma over how to interrogate prisoners must be faced.
There's plenty of Foreshadowing. Also plenty of body language. Perhaps less dialogue than Sanderson writes in his own books.
All in all, pretty damn good! I enjoyed it. Thanks to TOR.com for releasing this early.
I'm very much looking forward to September 17 when the Prologue is released for sale.
