Fantasy. Fiction. After bursting onto the fantasy scene with his acclaimed debut novel, Elantris, and following up with his blockbuster Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson proves again that he is today's leading master of what Tolkien called "secondary creation," the invention of whole worlds, complete with magics and myths all their own. Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago. Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people. By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.… (més)

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson is a standalone fantasy novel published a year after the third novel of the Mistborn series. Like Mistborn, it is set in a preindustrial monarchy with powerful magic. In Warbreaker, the magic comes from “biochromatic breath” that can be used to extend life, revive the dead, animate objects, and much else. A young princess from a mountain kingdom is married off to the God King of its tropical neighbor. She is not supposed to speak to her husband and is routinely called “vessel” to emphasize her dynastic duty. Her older sister engages with mercenaries in an effort to rescue her and prevent a war between the two kingdoms.
The plot is as twisty as anyone could wish, and the magic system is as original and consistent as the one in Mistborn. Most interestingly, characters are seldom as simple as they appear, and they frequently misconstrue each other’s motives. Sanderson knows his genre and can spin a yarn with the best of them. ( )

1/6/2017: Aaaaand just as good the 3rd time around. Still loving Sanderson and like his other books, love these narrators.

4/17/13: This was just as good the second time around and I love the annotations for each chapter that are available on the Kindle book. I was a bit surprised that the narrator of the audiobook (I switched back and forth between the two using Kindle's Whispersync) was a man, given that the two main characters were women, but considering that the other main character, Lightsong, was a guy--I gave them a pass. In any case, the narrator did a credible job.

I read this when 1st released and I can't remember if it was this polished or if further editing was done since my initial read. I guess it really doesn't matter--this was a good one and I remain a Sanderson fan.

FYI - Although I did, you don't have to pay for this book, it is available for free on Mr. Sanderson's website. ( )

Good in classic Sanderson style. I liked the story a lot, and I thought the twists and turns were quite interesting. I just thought the ending came a bit fast, that felt a little rushed to me. ( )

After reading Warbreaker, it's readily apparent that Brandon Sanderson is an extremely talented author. The novel was a real page turner and was filled with wonderful characters and thoughtful original ideas.
afegit per sdobie | editaSF Site, Dominic Cilli (Nov 1, 2009)
 
Sanderson's prose falls into a nice rhythm that helps to move the action forward. Multifaceted characters and action of both the mystical and sword-fighting realms bring added excitement to a complex and creative read.

"Warbreaker" is an improvement on Sanderson's other work. And if he continues to follow along this path, fans of the Wheel of Time series will have nothing to worry about.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaDeseret News, Jessica Harrison (Jun 14, 2009)
 
But the narrative is richer, spinning together hilarious dialogue, descriptive action sequences, and genuinely sweet romance.
 
The system of magic is also novel ... and demands far more of the characters' ingenuity, which in turn demands developing them--male and female, divine and mortal--to a far higher degree than one expects of much fantasy these days.
afegit per Katya0133 | editaBooklist, Roland Green (May 15, 2009)
 
Sanderson again demonstrates his capacity for handling large and complex themes while creating believable characters.
