In this extraordinary world, those who attain glory return as gods. And those who can master the essence known as breath can perform the most wondrous miracles - or unleash the most devastating havoc.

"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)
"Sanderson melds complex, believable characters, a marvelous world and thoughtful, ironic humor into an extraordinary and highly entertaining story." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
Another vampire story disguised as Sci Fi.
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.
Can I get a refund?
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!
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
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
Good story ideas with a wonderful world created with colors and new ideas of deity. Subplots nicely interwoven into the overall tapestry... But it lacked the pace and suspense that would have made it the page-turner I hoped it would be.
The narrator. He read everything like there was some giant joke.
Probably not, this one has pretty much turned me off from listening to another narration by him.
not really, many of Sanderson's books could easily be placed into a movie setting, not this one though.
the reading was soo bad it almost made me want to stop listening.
I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson is an excellent story, with a colourful magic system, cool characters and a great plot. It is well narrated by James Yaegashi. Brandon Sanderson readers will not be disappointed.
This book feels like it's trying to be Elentris, what with it's political intrigue and nations bracing for war. It even starts in a near identical way, with a princess headed to a foreign land to meet her new husband, the marriage having been arranged by a treaty. But it just doesn't hold to the same standard. It's still a good book, just not a great one. James Yaegashi doesn't help at all. He isn't good at voices. The various characters end up sounding like caricatures. Most notable is Light Song. The entire time, he sounded like a California surfer.
Story is terrific. Loved getting to know the characters.
While character distinction was very good, I just could not get into his style. He over emphasizes descriptive words (and there a lot of them :) ). Basically, he over performs.
Yes, in spite of the reader, I was hooked on the story.
