Epic fantasy heavyweight Sanderson pens a powerful stand-alone tale of unpredictable loyalties, dark intrigue and dangerous magic. . . . Sanderson melds complex, believable characters, a marvelous world and thoughtful, ironic humor into an extraordinary and highly entertaining story. (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Warbreaker)
Sanderson again demonstrates his capacity for handling large and complex themes while creating believable characters. (Library Journal (starred review) on Warbreaker)
Hilarious dialogue, descriptive action sequences, and genuinely sweet romance. . . . Sanderson knows how to wrap things up cleanly. He spins a world that's easily complex and mysterious enough to warrant sequels, but prefers to end it climactically, answering many of his biggest questions, while leaving others to the imagination. (The Onion on Warbreaker)
Sanderson is clearly a master of large-scale stories, splendidly depicting worlds as well as strong female characters. . . . May the author write long and prosper. (Booklist on Warbreaker)
A highly readable and compelling stand-alone volume from the acclaimed author of the Mistborn trilogy. . . . Highly recommended to fans of epic fantasy. (The Romantic Times BOOKreviews 4 ½ Stars TOP PICK!)
