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 you already know what a good job he did. He had a terrible temper. The rationale for their union was flawed, a massive plot hole that kept warbrwaker giving. It has to do with who you are and what you mean.

The book uses a system of magic, “Awakening”, which allows mages to bring life to objects as well as provide benefits directly to the mages while they hold “BioChromatic Breath”, the source of their power, [5] such as perfect pitch, perfect color recognition, perfect life recognition, and agelessness.

Take that well-developed cynicism and combine it with my OCD detail-orientedness, and, well. It is worth the read and is a perfect gateway to Sanderson’s work. With a plethora of Breaths come warbrezker Heightenings, each of which affects the bearer different.

Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson book review

Albeit in a controlled environment. 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.

Drabs find it difficult to perceive color and do not experience the ‘sixth sense’ or the odd sensation resulting from someone watching you unobserved. Most of all, I want to thank you for reading. Now, I want to try another book about deified men. Feel free to visit my forums and email me with your impressions of the novel. Having arrived in Hallandren, the princesses of Indria find that it is not what they were expecting.

Idris and Hallandren have been on the brink of armed conflict for years, but now the future of Nalthis lies in the hands of four individuals.


Warbreaker (Warbreaker, #1) by Brandon Sanderson

For those who are looking to try out my novels, I wanted to offer a free download. Get ready to marry their God King. I love this book so much. I believe that readers like to own books and, yes, even like to buy them specifically to support authors they want to write more books.

He holds the power to start this war. The two mercenaries added of lot of fun to the read without being caricatural. Every man is a hero in his own story. To have so many worshipers whose choice was to devote their lives serving them; and to have so many others whose choice was to serve them, but not worship them. As I said above, the story didn’t really grab my interest until the politics and characters personalities starting taking shape.

Magic users are known as Awakeners and their power comes from the number of BioChromatic Breaths they have stored. He was lighthearted and full of such witty sarcasm that I loved his exchanges with the other characters Yes, all of the other characters, he really was just that entertaining.

If characters manage to make me laugh, make me feel sad for them or even make me mad, I call that a job well done. The priests, having gained the Commands to control the city’s undead Lifeless army, send them to attack the Idrians and start the war. There was a great war over years ago and that is when a Returned took over the region in a great war.

This is not an old work. I do feel bad for blushweaver because she wasn’t that bad. But Sanderson grabbed me from page one of The Final Empire.

I want to take a moment and explain a small thing about myself and why this book, as well as Sanderson’s “It’s funny, Vasher thought, how many things begin with my getting thrown into prison. I did find the end a little rushed and I still wondered about the history of this world but compared to how good the book was those were little faults.

I honestly have about a hundred and sixty-four highlights from this book. As a child Brandon enjoyed reading, but he lost interest in the types of titles often suggested for him And I feel I can never trust anyone because the bad guy is always who you don’t expect.


Not to be missed fantasy.

After living destitute in the Idrian slums of Hallandren for weeks, Vivenna is taken in by Vasher, a mysterious man who can use his BioChromatic Breath to Awaken objects with a skill surpassing that of most others.

Or to doubt such thing by believing they were brought to life for an ultimate sacrifice. He has a vivid imagination and an inimitable skill to weave stories with various and complex characters evolving in new, independent worlds even though this book is part of the ambitious Cosmere. The Awakeners use the gathered breath to “awaken”, or infuse object with parts of it and in bradnon with well crafted commands makes those alivened object perform desired tasks.


This is only my second Sanderson read, but in addition to the character s -you-don’t-like, other patterns are also emerging. This story was bfandon sorts of awesome. Though this is the fourth draft of the book, my novels usually see somewhere near eight drafts before they go to press.

Warbreaker is a superb book and is easily worth the five stars I have given it. Dissensions within the palace.

Magic system Very unique, unlike anything I’ve seen before. This is the premise and inspiration for Warbreaker. A few times in this book I thought she was just a pompous princess who liked tooting her own horn, but she turned my opinion around and I actually ended up liking her more then Siri. In a fracturing empire spread across savage seas, two people find a common cause. I feel this book completed adult version.

And then secondly I read this absolute gem of a novel. It’s very possible I missed the explanation somewhere along the line, but I often forgot it was a color magic system. I hate their arrogance most of all. While the sword’s intentions were very clear all along the book, Vasher was very difficult to judge and I really need to know more about his past!!
