2 : Warbreaker (2 of 3)

by Brandon Sanderson
Nov 1, 2009
5 Hours
Ages 13+
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 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.

The plot thickens by ZJ (Posted on 8/29/2018)
As was the case with Elantris, the pace of this story picks up here in the middle section. I enjoyed Warbreaker a bit more than I did Elantris. I think that’s due to coming into the story with a better understanding of what to expect from Sanderson’s work than I did with Elantris. Also, the great characters and the intrigue in this story hooked me more than the characters and plot of Elantris.

I’m always really happy with the way GA sonically represents things like magic and mutant powers. There way of bringing to life the biochromatic magic in Warbreaker is perfect. Acting and other elements of sound design are also excellent as always. There is the same slight problem with the audio mix at certain points in this production. Like I said in my review for the first part though, wearing headphones makes it easy to deal with.

Great work here by GA. Now on to the conclusion.
Excellent by Mr Ryan p (Posted on 6/1/2018)
Very excellent story with a great side plot. I love how Sanderson asks tough ethical questions

An excellent end to an engrossing story.

Story has a very good flow the author keeps you engrossed in the story.
Amazing! by Julia (Posted on 12/21/2016)
This book is just so great on its own, but grapic audio just makes it so much better! It's really even better than a movie would be. Movies tough out stuff from books, but here you get an even better experience!
Still an excellent adaptation of a great book by Amy (Posted on 7/20/2016)
Listening to this now, and I already know I love it. Especially since I listened to the first part, and nothing has changed from part to part, other than the story continuing. I love how the first part left off, and the action was picked right up. I absolutely adore the court intrigue, and how Siri handles it. LOVE.
Achingly Beautiful by Cassiopeia (Posted on 5/5/2016)
One of Brandon Sanderson's more complex stories, and quite possibly GraphicAudio's best work (that I've heard). This colorful world is brought fully to life with brilliantly conceived and executed accents and music that add that extra definition to Sanderson's culturally rich world. The characters are handed masterfully and everything has an extra level of care and dedication that makes this work feel so complete in every way. Warbreaker is undoubtedly another win for both Sanderson and GraphicAudio.
Excellent by Jonathan (Posted on 3/27/2016)
After listening to and being very disappointed with the Graphic Audio version of Elantris, I almost didn't buy any more books from them. I'm glad that I changed my mind.

For of all, the story itself is excellent—an intriguing magic system, a vibrant world, and multi-layered, likable characters. Nothing in this story is what it initially appears to be, and well-placed reveals made for quite a ride.

The voice acting was similarly excellent--the casting in particular was spot on. All of the voices fit the characters perfectly. My one complaint with the production is that the sound effects, could, at times, feel a bit overused, but it generally wasn't too disruptive.

(This review applies all three parts, because I really can't talk about them separately. They're fragments of a single story, and the story--not the parts--is what stands out in my memory.)
A good book by Steven (Posted on 3/10/2016)
Not as much action in this book, but Sanderson does a good job of mixing plot and character development. Cast is good too.
Took My Breath Away by S. Patel (Posted on 2/20/2016)
My favorite book ever. So glad to have this special graphic audio to add to my collection.
Book 2 by justin (Posted on 12/9/2015)
Really good book
Still going strong by Thomas (Posted on 11/5/2014)
Part 1 of this series was amazing and part 2 does not let us down either. Voice acting still remains great!
Awesome Continuation by Travis (Posted on 8/29/2014)
Graphic Audio continued to do an amazing job with this story. I'm thoroughly engrossed in the story, and a lot has to do with amazing background music, sound effects, and the great voice acting. It really is "a movie in your mind."

Review by Edward Owens (Posted on 5/23/2013)
This is the best story in the fantasy section. The others are good too, but I found this story to be the most entertaining.
Review by Johnny Tai (Posted on 5/23/2013)
Very nice, graphic audio as usual has made what starts out as a good series nearly perfect.

I'm happy that there appears to be alot more action in book II, and things are progressing smoothly- shame about the two mercenaries though...I really liked them...but I'll lay off the spoilers.

I'm continuously amazed at how good the cast is- the British accents are just so perfectly done.
