Warbreaker Brandon Sanderson – Book review

Title : Warbreaker Author : Brandon Sanderson Genre : Adult High Fantasy Published : 2009 Pages : 688


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 only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.

By using breath and drawing upon the color 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.

My thoughts…

I really enjoyed every bit of Warbreaker. I love politics in my fantasy, this book had great political intrigue. The plot of the story is great, two sisters who are completely different, one is being sent to marry the God King. There’s a huge plot twist which just made me love this book more. The magic system is based on colors and Biochromatic breaths.

The characters in this book so fun and great to follow. I really enjoyed Lightsong’s carefree sarcasm and nonchalant banter. I loved the way Siri held her own and became her own person being forced into a unique position. Then Vivenna after receiving duty training all her life to be a wife to the god king. There was so much character growth in this book. The character introductions were done really well. I didn’t feel as though there were a bunch of unnecessary characters. I loved how the God King was portrayed in this story as well. Instead of the usual evil king. Then Vasher and his important role that he plays, this book really just took me on a ride.

The writing kept me intrigued and wanting to keep reading. The world building, magic system and characters with the plot and everything all together this book was so good. I rated this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

I hope you all enjoyed reading my review of Warbreaker. I will post a link of my Readerly Gist below as well. Stay safe y’all and keep reading and dreaming 🌸✨🦋
