Book Review — Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

Warbreaker Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Sanderson novel through and through.

Excellent magic (I feel as though that’s a given these days), neat and functional world-building, and the workman’s prose I’ve come to love.

It’s a solid effort, though you can tell that it’s an early book since the writing is good, but nothing special.

My favourite parts were the characters, who I thought had satisfying arcs, and the tight use of POV to show contrast and build up tension between them.

OK, just kidding, my real favourite part of this book (and the reason I decided to read it), was to see how it all fit into The Cosmere, which is basically how all of Sanderson’s adult novels are set in the same universe and all interact. More on it here and our book club’s discussion of the Cosmere implications specifically in Warbreaker here
