Epic Fantasy Recommendations

Book Review: Warbreaker

By Brandon Sanderson

My Edition:
Paperback, 656 pages
2010, Tor
ISBN: 9780765360038

The cities of T’Telir and Idris are on the brink of war. T’Telir is ruled by the Returned, heroes reborn as gods and the powerful God King. Each week the people of the city offer their gods Breath – the life force that each person possesses and some know how to use to bring ordinary objects to life to do their bidding. The former royal family lives in Idris and has offered one of their daughters to be the wife of the God King, in hopes that by honoring an old treaty with T’Telir, the powerful city won’t declare war on Idris. But the priests of the gods are clamoring for war and when a mysterious man with a sentient sword shows up, he’ll do all he can do to stop it.
