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.

How do I become a beta reader?? I would love to get my hands on the next instalment of this or any Brandon Sanderson book! Better than George RR Martin?? Certainly more productive with equally high quality books imo!

Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The book is great, a great end to the series.

What didn’t you like about Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner ’s performance?

I have loved all of Cassandra Clare's books and have both read them and listened to them. Most of the narratiors have been good and sometimes even great. However, these two narrators are the worst I have heard in a long time especially Jason Dohring.

Any additional comments?

Please please please re-record this book maybe with Kate Rudd as one or the narrators.
