AHHHWHAT JUSTI need the next book. Now. And I don't have it. What do I do!?
4.5/5 StarsAmazing Buddy read with these ladies:Sister from another mother SarahInnocent Queen CelesteLovely Princess Maryand everyone from Fantasy Buddy Reads group!First things first, Warbreaker is the first book by Brandon Sanderson I read which aren't from the Mistborn series and while it doesn't live up to the greatness of the original Mistborn trilogy for me, this is still a really great read. Sanderson haven't disappoint me so far and I don't think he ever will, at least in his Cosmere wo [...]
"My life to yours. My Breath become yours.”Buddy read with my homies at fantasy buddy reads & some of my favorite people;1.Mary2. Patty3.Celeste4.ChokoHOLY SHITSLAP MY ASS AND CALL ME SUE! WHAT IN GODS NAME DID I JUST READ?! ILL TELL YOU WHAT, A FUCKING MASTERPIECE. “Every man is a hero of his own story."This book was absolutely mind blowing good, it took my breath away & now I'm a drab, I am once again at a loss for words after another Sanderson book. Seriously how does he manage to [...]
Reviewed by: Rabid ReadsI've been had. I'm simultaneously impressed and infuriated by this knowledge. It's not that I consider myself to be exceptionally smart so that nothing ever gets by me, or that I'm super sneaky and thus able to suss out super sneakiness in others, but you know how it is: when you've read enough books, you become cynical. If a character does even a single eyebrow-raising thing, you've got their number. Anything that qualifies as "questionable" behavior a suspect makes.Take [...]
4.5 I always have a hard time reviewing Brandon Sanderson's books. As always the world building and the magic system is what makes this book amazing. I really liked the story and the twist I didn't see coming. I would totally recommend this books and cannot wait for the sequel since the title is the name of one of my favorite character a talking sword :P
This is not on the same level for me as Mistborn but I do have a feeling that I'll appreciate this one even more as time goes on and I'm looking forward to discussing it more in detail during with my gush video!
THAT WAS INCREDIBLE. I can't believe I've been staring at this book on my shelf for years but just got to it now. What have I been doing with my life?!There's no way to summarize this or even begin to do the brilliant worldbuilding justice, I'm so sorry. It had easily one of the most creative, fascinating systems of magic I've ever found (well, I don't know if it's technically magic buuut we're going to group it under that label). I never once thought the dense history or technical stuff was at [...]
"It's funny, Vasher thought, how many things begin with my getting thrown into prison."Warbreaker is one of those books that I will think back on and say "Wow that was a really well balanced fantasy novel." And by well balanced I mean that everything was in perfect proportion. The number of perspectives, the intricacy of the plot, the pace of action, everything was just perfectly well written.I want to take a moment and explain a small thing about myself and why this book, as well as Sanderson's [...]
"My life is yours. My Breath become yours."Brandon Sanderson has wonderful ideas of magical powers system, belief and political. WOW, WOW, WOW!This is a very different kind of fantasy book.This is an unusual Sanderson's book. I feel this book completed adult version.'Warbreaker' genres are mystery, magic and the politics of divinity.Lots of characters are stupendous! My favourite characters are Lightsong the Bold, Llarimar, Nightblood, Vasher, Siri, Susebron and Vivenna but Lightsong the Bold is [...]
“My life to yours. My Breath become yours.”This book blew me away, I love everything about it from the very first page to the last one. I was neither bored nor annoyed by any of the characters, I love them all, I don't even hate the villains, they are just to wise but I love how things ended for everyone despite their loss, it was worth the gain.This book has a very complex but simple magic system that I love so much, the magic use colour and breath, if you are familiar with Sanderson then y [...]
3.5 stars“You should watch yourself, child,” he whispered. “Not all here in the palace is as it seems.”Siri and Vivenna are princesses of the mountain kingdom of Idris, a minor power whose very existence is threatened by invasion from the Kingdom of the Iridescent Tones. And so, to avoid war, one of them must leave her home to marry the God King of Hallandren, a man reputed to be a monster.Read a book by Brandon Sanderson, and certain things are guaranteed to appear. An innovative magic [...]
Warbreaker is another great Brandon Sanderson epic fantasy novel. Like his other books this had great world building, a fantastic and unique system of magic, and a ton of memorable characters. Warbreaker is the story of two sisters and their attempts to stop two nations from going to war. All set in a world where those who die in glory are returned as Gods, and souls are the fuel that keeps both the returned Gods alive, and powers the biochromatical magic system. Warbreaker is a superb book and [...]
**Spoilers**One advice. Do read Warbreaker prior to reading the Mistborn Trilogy Boxed Set .In the past 72 hrs, I've read in excess of 2600 pages of words written by Sanderson and let me tell you, it's been an immersion of epic proportion. This author is one level above genius. His words, the world building, the characters, and the pace. Brilliant.I digress.Once I finished the Mistborn trilogy, I dove into Warbreaker anticipating an equally exhilarating experience.Unlike the Mistborn series, War [...]

*** 5 ***Wow! Another spellbinding, mind blowing, fast talking, action packed Sanderson hit! I have gotten so used to his brilliance already that it doesn't surprise me anymore - I have come to expect it from him and wonder if he will ever write something that lets my high expectations down Well, not this time, that is for sure!I love the universe Sanderson has created for the majority of his Fantasy, of which this world is a part of. This time the magic system depends on the human "breath" , wh [...]
Colours were just colours until I read this book. After reading this, it is pretty much obvious that Sanderson is a much bigger genius than Einstein ever was. I wonder where he gets his ideas from, did he look at a paint set one day and then came up with Biochroma? I guess we'll never know.Turns out that I can't marry a book, unfortunately.”My life to yours, My breath become yours.”I enjoyed reading this very much, the characters were spot on, plot was intriguing and most importantly the mag [...]
*** Revamped, spoiler-free review ***What a colorful world Brandon Sanderson crafted in Warbreaker! This is seemingly the tale of two radically different sisters. Vivenna, the oldest of her siblings is traditional, poised and raised to be the perfect bride to the powerful and fearsome God King, in order to maintain peace between their two kingdoms. And then, there is Siri, the youngest princess, bold, rebellious, curious, full of life and "unimportant". Their lives are turned upside down when th [...]
“What I'm trying to say is that you don't understand a man until you understand what makes him do what he does. Every man is a hero of his own story.”4.5 Stars: ✰✰✰✰½This book left me just as impressed as it did the first time. It's interesting, because this book is so completely different from any other of Brandon's books that I can think of, and rereading it two years later (now with all of the other Cosmere books in my brain) I picked up on a lot of things that I didn't understan [...]
Warbreaker's 2017 Cosmere Reread before Oathbringer is DONE! Colours that was as awesome as ever! There are still so many secrets!!! I love this book! One more exclamation! :D------------------------------------------------“My life to yours. My Breath become yours.” Warbreaker is the story of two very different 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 [...]
Full review now posted below!This was my first buddy-read with royalty: Lady Luna, Marquess Mary, and Prince Petrik. Love you guys!I feel sated. I had high hopes for Warbreaker, and those hopes were far surpassed. I cannot comprehend the mind of Brandon Sanderson. How does he come up with such complex magic systems, layered religions, and multifaceted characters? Not just once, but multiple times in multiple different universes? I know that they’re all part of the same Cosmere, and I can’t w [...]
Brandon Sanderson is for many, one of the best fantasy writers and his books are listed among almost any top ten fantasy book list and I always thought my first Sanderson book would be The Way of Kings or The Final Empire but somehow Warbreaker ended up to be my first foray into the mind of Sanderson.Depending on the writing some books need more time to get in to. This is not that kind of book. Prologue features a mysterious character on an assassination mission wielding a badass sword with a mi [...]
SANDERSON, YOU FUCKIN' GENIUS! *sobs* I can't review this book. I refuse to! How in gods earth do I form coherent sentences when my mind has been obliterated into pieces?! I'm in damn awe! My emotions are in a state of frenzy! If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon that is Brandon Sanderson, you haven't lived. Over and out.
Full review now updated.In honor of WeRateDogs one year anniversary: "This is Sanderson's good book. We only rate bad Sanderson. Please send bad Sanderson. Thank you. 12/10"No, it's actually more like 2.66.In pretty much uneven and yawn enticing plot-wise book lies a hidden gem called Lightsong.To me, he is the most interesting character Sanderson created in his entire Cosmere Universe. For 60-70% of this book, that is. Later, as predictable, he suffered from author’s inability to rise him up [...]
No puedo superar lo abrupto que fue el epilogo xD.
Enjoyed this a lot. One thing I admire about this author is his dedication to world-building. This is the third world I've read by him where he's invented a new type of magic system that is fresh and interesting. It takes a lot of road-paving to get something this unique through to the audience, and the beginning is a bit slow because of it, but I really enjoyed the characters and the magic system. Like most of the other reviews I agree the ending felt a bit rushed, and the sequel was set up in [...]
I think everybody has read Sanderson at this point so I don't know what to offer other than this has all of his hallmarks. Compelling characters, good storyline, distinct magic system, ties into the Cosmere.k, check, check.Hopefully we'll see book two at some point.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!I really have spoiled myself far too much after feeling exultant due to exams being over and holidays having begun. Firstly it was the sweets (drinking m&ms, eating cheescake, icecream, trifle and toasted sandwiches filled with caramelised apple - cook apples and then mix cream and brown sugar) but not all at once of course, only across 24 hours. And then secondly I read this absolute gem of a novel. But then I have found all of Brandon Sanderson's serious fantasy books to be [...]
2.5Let me start by saying that I was pleasantly surprised. For some reason I was expecting another epic type fantasy, with lots of travel and descriptions of foliage, and I was very glad to find myself mistaken in that regard. I enjoyed the more personal aspect of the story, and the intrigue and mystery which went along with it. It was definitely a page-turned, especially towards the end when I wanted to see how everything would work out.So why only 2 1/2 stars?A few reasons. The first is that i [...]
It is Brandon. Freaking. Sanderson! Need I say more!? And the characters - Siri, Lightsong, the God King, Vasher! ♥️😍♥️😍READ. IT.
Let's just dive right into this review as I'm already at a loss as to how I'm supposed to review this epic book. This review is SPOILER FREE This book took my Sanderson virginity And I'm so happy that I chose Warbreaker to lose it to!I absolutely loved this book. The magic system is beautiful and so unique. Sanderson paints its useage and history so intricately and gives it the care it deserves. The world building was on point And the characters Oh blessed colors, the characters! These complex, [...]
