Audio Book Summary

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.

    Great book. Narrator didn’t have the range for voices to make the characters individual. At times you needed to be told who was talking.

    Good story if you like political inner workings and conspiracies. Obviously the crux of the story is about war. Interesting cast of characters. Liked it as much as Elantris.

    This book was great! Brandon Sanderson has a wonderful gift with words, world making and character building. His stories come alive on the pages, and you almost can feel yourself transported into one of his worlds. Alyssa Bresnahan was clear and charming in her delivery. I found it easy to tell which characters she was portraying, at any given time.

    This was a wonderful book! I just recently turned on to Sanderson and so far I haven’t been disappointed yet! And I completely disagree with others comments about the narrator not being good. I thought she did a great job and never had trouble telling which character was speaking. I highly recommend it!

    So far I have not heard/ read a book by Brandon Sanderson that I have not enjoyed. He has an amazing and impressive imagination and a great ability to make it all real. I'm not your typical fanticy reader, I'm an older lady, but I just can't get enough of his stories!! Thank goodness he writes so quickly!

    A great book to listen too, although the narration could have been much better.

    Great book, narrator could have been better, but since I hadn't read the book before his character depictions didn't bother me too much. Worth a buy.
