Incredibly well-written, but highly misogynist

Descriptions are superbly crafted and the character building moments are expertly done, save for the same, tired, heavily sexist presentation of female characters you can see anywhere. If it's female, it only exists to be f***ed. Treatment of female characters needs serious work.

Narrator is amazing!

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.

A powerful coming-of-age tale of a young man destined to become one of the most powerful men Verold has ever known. It's a unique tale of adventure, adversity, and strength. Written with the hand of a poet and the heart of a warrior. The book's action and depth will astound as the reader delves deeper into the masterful world painted in detailed strokes.

Read at an awkward pace with fits and starts for breathing like he's trying to rush it. The story itself is amazing if you can get past the narration!

Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.
