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)
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.
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
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
