Description

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 be collected only one unit at a time from individual people.

By using breath and drawing upon the colour 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.

Super livre

Je cherchais un livre fantastique, dans ce livre le monde est immersif et le système magique est innovant. J'ai accroché du début à la fin. petit reproche que je peux faire à ce livre : j'ai eu quelques incompréhensions sur le système de magie et son fonctionnement

Great story

Really loved this story. Plenty of twists and surprises. Some things I expected but others I really didn't. Enjoyed the reader's voice in this one too.

A bit more positive than Sanderson's usual works

This book is amazing. It has all the good qualities of Sanderson's books, but the tone is more positive than usually. Sanderson seems to like plot line where things start bad, are stable for a while, things go bad, things go really bad, despair settles in, all hope is lost, a miracle happens. This book contains all those but the tone is bit more positive, so the reader feels less despair.

This is a story of finding one's self. Of magical worlds and wonders. If you liked Sanderson's other works you will love this one too. The story takes place in the cosmere and if you read the stormlight archives like the oathbringer, you will find lot of inside references.

The book is surprising, the plot twists are really good. The characters are well developed and the world building is substantial. Narration is immaculate and easily likable. Every fan of high fantasy should read this. Buy it now, you won't be disappointed.

Book solid, voices indistinct.

Again another solid exploration of a new and fresh magic system and very human characters with real problems.
Yes epic, but small and personal.

The voice actor has not developed the ability to do different voices. Not even two. So every dialog becomes a puzzle. Voice actors: this is an essential skill! Without it.. amateur hour.
Also, to most women voice actors: cmonn.. Mens voices are more then just adding a little bass rumble in the throat. Practice practice practice. You sound like you are mocking fathers berating their child. I know accessing lower registers is harder for women then accessing higher registers is for men, but that is why you have to try harder. Challenge is no excuse for failure. Practice. Now. Please? ;P

But yeh the book is great.

Another brilliant other worldy society by Brandon

I am always captured by the completely thought out structures, values and hierarchy in a society that Brandon creates as a result of his magic systems, and warbreaker is no exception.

Nice story

A superb story, thoug a bit slow in the midle section. The story slowly turned around being Great. But it took a while for the characters getting in the positions needed to make the story interesting.

Great!

As always Sanderson have thought up a interesting and unique magic system. The story is solid and the narrator is also splendid.
If you like Sanderson previous work you will enjoy this.

I keep getting amazed by the writing if Brandon Sanderson. i finished this book after the thirth part of the stormlight archive. Its said tgat you should listen to it before reading the thirth part because of some cross characters. Nevertheless great stand alone story.

Sandersons at their colourful best.

Brandon Sanderson writes some of my favorite fantasy and he and his wife did not disappoint this time.

Warbreaker is well written and the audiobook well read. Sometimes the narrative has its lengths, some of the twists and the end are a little obvious.

The magic system is unique and ties wonderfully into the narrative. The perspective of the main characters, two sisters and a god is interesting mostly because, they are barely anytime in control of what happens, are mostly the characters who know the least of what is going on in the room. This makes this feel like a who-did-it crime novella at some time, when the reader/listener has to put together the clues for himself.

All in all great fun to listen to.

Good VA, fine story

I liked her voice a lot, she did her VA very well. The story has two huge issues to me personally, while little of it was predictable to me personally, the end result of the plots seemed silly, yet still managed to move away from being predictable. (SPOILER COMING UP) 1.) I disliked that the plot progression, while hinted to, seemed silly. The mercs just being mercs, etc. 2.) Who, by the nine hells, would attack a mountain region? Really now? The mere thought of doing such puts me into disgust as the reasoning behind it seems insufficient. Rebels, offshots, hostiles, it does not matter, there is no point in attacking or invading people hiding in mountains. 3) I was disappointed that the princesses father and their general never came up beyond the early stages ever again. It makes them seem redundant.

Another brilliant story by Brandon Sanderson

If you have read one of Sanderson's books I needn't say more. He created another vivid world, a unique and creative system of magic and a capturing plot. It might not beat his Stormlight or Mistborn books, but it is far better than most other Fantasy novels out there. If you loved his other books, you'll like this one, too.

The speaker is capable and nice to listen to, though not brilliant. As I'm no native English speaker I had to slow her down to 90% though, I'm really glad we have the option to slow down or speed up speech with the Audible App.
