I wish it hadn't taken quite so long to get to Warbreaker. It's really quite a good book, right up there with pretty much all of the rest of Sanderson's works.

There's a neat magic system (as there always is)--although this time around it felt a bit less detailed than Sanderson usually is. Usually even when as a reader doesn't know all of the rules, you get the idea that there are rules. This time, it just felt a bit more vague. I'm still unsure what exactly the color has to do with it, although the idea of magical automatons powered by souls (Breaths, whatever) is neat, if not quite as original as Sanderson often is. (It doesn't help that I'm also reading Mistborn at the moment.)

The really interesting part though is that of the Returned: those that come back after dying, but will only stick around if they're fed another soul once a week. It doesn't kill those they feed upon, but it will leave them without some sort of inherent spark.

Oh, and the hair thing? That's kind of strange. I'm not sure what the point of that is. I kept expecting being able to grow bright colored hair to save the day (since to use Breath, you have to drain colors), but it never came up. Perhaps in the eventual planned sequel?

Characterwise, I really enjoyed Siri's point of view and her interactions with the God King. Up until the last chunk of the book, he really felt like someone who had been through the exactly what he'd been through. There's an amusing note in the introduction in that this is the book Sanderson was writing when he got married and that his wife had a lot of input into the process. Given the nature of Siri and the God King's wedding night and early interactions... It's amusing to imagine a pair of newlyweds talking through those sections.

My favorite character though had to have been Lightsong. He had one of the craziest character arcs that I've seen in a novel. At first, he's a mix of unlikable and amusing, but I really grew to care for him by the end. And then... Just read it. You'll see.

Plotwise, it's straightforward enough, albeit with a couple of larger twists towards the end. My only real complaint is that the ending just sort of fell together entirely too quickly. Add to that that I really didn't feel like the character of Vasher fit with the rest of the world (although his sword is neat), and I wasn't overly thrilled with how things turned out. I wanted so much more... and then it was over.

Overall, it's not the strongest of Sanderson's works, but so far as I'm concerned that still leaves it a wide margin ahead of much of the rest of fantasy literature out there. I've heard there will be a sequel some day. I look forward to it.

And then there was Hoid. I'm pretty sure the object he was playing with had relations to at least White Sand (the first book Sanderson wrote), Elantris (the first he published), and Mistborn (which he'd finished just before Warbreaker). It's a neat Easter Egg for those paying entirely too much attention (or those who've read the Coppermind Wiki). One of these days I really want to see a book from his point of view though. Hard to pull off, but I'm confident Sanderson could / will do it.

Just a good book, like always. ( )

Warbreaker was one of the first books written by Sanderson, yet it still feels the same as his most recent works. The magic system revolves around "breath" - which has a similarity to peoples souls. The more "breaths" you have drawn from others (by way of them giving them to you), the more unique and powerful abilities you'll have. The way this concept is expanded on, as well as giving and taking breath to others and physical objects makes for a depth of ways to explore this idea. ( )

Oh, colours. This book. Is. Everything. All shades of Sanderson. Funny and dark. Deep and light. Emotional, with plot twists, but easy to read and understand. It's different, compared to Elantris or Mistborn series. But all the key elements are there.

The only negative thing for me is this indescribable feeling, that the plot and what actually goes on in the book is kind of separated from the world, from the magic system... it's not really, but for some reason (at least for me) ... there is the magic/world describing scenes. And the story, the gods, the struggle of war coming. Not as fluently connected and linked as in other Sanderson books. But meh, that's just a weird feeling. The book is still great. ( )

After reading Warbreaker, it's readily apparent that Brandon Sanderson is an extremely talented author. The novel was a real page turner and was filled with wonderful characters and thoughtful original ideas.

Sanderson's prose falls into a nice rhythm that helps to move the action forward. Multifaceted characters and action of both the mystical and sword-fighting realms bring added excitement to a complex and creative read.

"Warbreaker" is an improvement on Sanderson's other work. And if he continues to follow along this path, fans of the Wheel of Time series will have nothing to worry about.

But the narrative is richer, spinning together hilarious dialogue, descriptive action sequences, and genuinely sweet romance.
 
The system of magic is also novel ... and demands far more of the characters' ingenuity, which in turn demands developing them--male and female, divine and mortal--to a far higher degree than one expects of much fantasy these days.

Sanderson again demonstrates his capacity for handling large and complex themes while creating believable characters.
