This post will include my review of the book Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson. A stand alone book, released for free as it was being written and eventually published in December 2011.
The text below is taken from the blurb on the back of the book.
I started reading the free PDF version of this book and by the time I’d finished the prologue I went out and purchased the paperback.
On this blog I’ve made no secret of my love of Brandon Sanderson’s story telling and this book is no exception. The way he creates worlds that seem plausible, fully developed, and rich in culture and history is just amazing. And his magic systems aren’t too bad either.
I enjoyed this book, not as much as I enjoyed his Way of Kings story, but it was still very good. The characters were interesting but perhaps lack the depth or complexity of those in his other books. This was definitely a fun read and the dialog (particularly that involving Lightsong – the lesser god mentioned in the blurb) made me laugh on more than one occasion.
If you’re looking for something accessible and definitely stand alone, then Warbreaker is a great way to spend a few hours.
