Warbreaker (Warbreaker, #1) by Brandon Sanderson
What drove the book was how characters were forced to lay aside prejudices in order to survive and the web of secrets behind the gods and their priests.
In fact, the pacing was globally slow but built up cleverly to a thrilling last quarter, as usual! And yet, one of my main reasons for releasing said e-book would be for publicity reasons.
Vasher is a mysterious guy running around in the shadows of Hallandren with his companion Nightblood, who is nothing less than a sentient sword. How does he fit so much talent into one brain? If you give it away for free, nobody will buy it! If a character does even a single eyebrow-raising thing, you’ve got their number. I can’t believe I’ve been staring at this book on my shelf for years but just got to it now.
He has brandn vivid imagination and an inimitable skill to weave stories with warbreakef and complex characters evolving warbdeaker new, independent worlds even though this book is part of the ambitious Cosmere.
Then, Wabrreaker spent some more time considering. There are still so many secrets!!! The Hero of Ages Mistborn: I do feel bad for blushweaver because she wasn’t that bad.
Of course the wrong princess Siri ends up being sent along and refuses to produce an heir this of course leads to some interesting revelations. The common people actually get to interact with their gods. It’s just a lot more satisfying to me.
However for as useless and redundant as he tries to be it seems that he will be caught up in whatever is happening one way or another. But what’s even more fascinating is that all the magics Sanderson created within the Cosmere obey, in an almost scientific approachto the same set of rules: Second is the length of the novel.

Just as it ruined me by sandersoon my childhood, by forcing me to honor the obligation to be taken and raped in the name of protecting my country. I was very rbandon in any scene he was present, it’s surreal anytime I imagine him as a sword. His conversations with his priest, Llarimar, put a permanent smile on my face they sounded like a couple married for yearswhile his exchanges with Blushweaver and the other Returned gave me headaches unlike Lightsong, I can suffer from headaches, but those were of the good kind.
Though in true Sanderson style there were no pure evil characters and you could saderson sympathize with the reasons the “bad guys” had for doing what they did. Awesome, terrible, holy, majestic. I really enjoyed Lightsong and Viviana’s storylines, but Siri’s was a little boring until over halfway into the book.
What made this book Awesome all over again? Views Read Edit View history. Jan 03, Katerina rated it really liked it Shelves: As always the world building and the magic system is what makes this book amazing. One thing I admire about this author is his dedication to world-building.
Dull as a rock and twice as ugly. The pantheon of gods are forming factions and we are plunged into a variety of different conflicts, always kept wondering who is going to do what and what are their motivations This book has a very complex but simple magic system that I love so much, warbfeaker magic use colour and breath, if you are familiar with Sanderson then you already know what a good job he did.
I have Sandersonitis — Symptoms include – Bleary eyes from reading too long or staying up too lat What is better than Pi day 3. Also, I would recommend reading The Stormlight Archive books before reading this. But then I have found all of Brandon Sanderson’s warbraker fantasy books to be gems.
Warbreaker – Wikipedia
The Well of Ascension Mistborn: I need action and suspense and great dialogue to keep me entranced. Use mdy dates from September Pages to import images to Wikidata. Upon arriving in Hallandren, Vivenna meets up with Lemex, one of her father’s spies brandonn the city, but sandersno has taken ill and dies shortly thereafter—though not before bequeathing his BioChromatic Breath to her.
At the time, I noticed the work of Cory Doctorow, who releases all of his books on-line at the same time as the hardback comes out from Tor. GraphicAudio has released Warbreaker as a dramatized audio production.
A lot of misdirecting occurred within the plot which was fun as I had to try and work out which characters honestlyb were good. I kinda wished I read this before Stormlight Archive, I know it isn’t in the right order to read Warbreaker first but I feel I wouldn’t have missed a few connections if I had read this first and I certainly would have understood Nightblood and Zahel a lot more.
Those books are just on a whole different level of epicness. Warbreaker tells the story of two Idrian princesses, Vivenna and Siri. The priests, having gained the Commands to control the city’s undead Lifeless army, send them to attack the Idrians and start the war.
The number of perspectives, the intricacy of the plot, the pace of action, everything was just perfectly well written. Varied tangents, all meandering toward a climax; however, there were many unanswered questions.
Ruin John Gwynne 9. I seriously could not put this book down!!
A world transformed by a power based on an essence known as breath. Hallandren is vastly superior to Indria however, and the king of Indria has to send his daughter to marry their God King to keep a promise he made.
