Summary

After bursting onto the fantasy scene with his acclaimed debut novel, Elantris, and following up with his blockbuster Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson proves again that he is today's leading master of what Tolkien called 'secondary creation', the invention of whole worlds, complete with magics and myths all their own.
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 from individual people.
By using breath and drawing upon the colour in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron, the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery; and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.

Finally I Bought it

I can say it’s awesomely written but it’s Brandon Sanderson so of course it is , this I a great standalone story great characters with a plot twist I never guessed , as allways there are hints and connections to other story’s written by Brandon , his cosmere, this is the first Brandon audiobook narrated by Alyssa Bresnahan she did a Stella job brining the characters to life I would definitely listen to more books narrated by Alyssa .
As a reader or listener I allways tend to gravitate towards the series rather than the standalone, so this and Atlantis where my later ventures but definitely two favourites and when it comes to Brandon Sanderson books are rarely standalone even if you don’t realise it .

I really enjoyed this book

I keep getting amazed by the writing if Brandon Sanderson. i finished this book after the thirth part of the stormlight archive. Its said tgat you should listen to it before reading the thirth part because of some cross characters. Nevertheless great stand alone story.
