"Not only has Sanderson drawn a freshly imagined world and its society, he has also given us a plot full of unexpected twists and turns....Anyone looking for a different and refreshing fantasy novel will be delighted by this exceptional tale of magic, mystery and the politics of divinity. Warbreaker might even take your breath away." (Michael Moorcock)

    "Another great story from Brandon Sanderson"

    I am quickly becoming a huge fan of his work. I hope this continues in a series. Highly recommend this listen as well as his others.

    "Story pretty good, narrator awful"

    This is the first review I've written, and it's because the narrator of this book was so bad. He gave main characters surfer-dude and valley-girl inflections. Almost like he was parodying those archetypes. I almost couldn't listen to it, but Sanderson's world is, as usual, intriguing.

    "Not on the same level as the Sandman's other works"

    The overall story wasn't up to par with his previous works, but was right at or just above average. The narration left a lot to be desired. make sure to preview the audio before you buy. Overall: 3.5/5

    "Good but not his best"

    I'm a huge Brandon Sanderson fan. This was a good book. The plot took awhile to get going but once it did its a roller coaster ride with genuine twists you don't see coming. The reader was good but I kinda wish they had used a female for the woman's parts. Not a fan of his attempts at a woman's voice.

    "Good Story Bad Narrator"
    What disappointed you about Warbreaker?

    Bad Narrator


    What was most disappointing about Brandon Sanderson’s story?

    Another vampire story disguised as Sci Fi.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If I could have given this a negative star I would. The actor sounds like he is forcing the story and the voices are sooooo fake its disturbing.


    Any additional comments?

    Can I get a refund?

    "Great story! Poor narration"

    I am a big fan of Brandon Sanderson and really enjoyed this book! The narration was not my favorite however... But I found that listening to the book at 1.5x or 2.0x speed helps!

    "Typical Sanderson. Awesome"

    I know it's hard to do all types of voices and keep them straight for each character, but the Fast Times at Ridgemont High voice for Lightsong was hard to listen to. Other than that, I hope there is a second book

    "Enjoyed it!"

    It was very different but very interesting! There are some minor similarities to other books, but if you like Sanderson I'd recommend this one
