Editorial Reviews


“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

“An exceptional tale of magic, mystery, and the politics of divinity. Warbreaker might even take your breath away!”—Michael Moorcock

“Sanderson is an evil genius. There is simply no other way to describe what he’s managed to pull off in this transcendent final volume in his Mistborn trilogy.”—RT BOOK REVIEWS, Gold Medal, top pick! on The Hero of Ages

“This very superior stand-alone fantasy proves, among other things, that Sanderson was a good choice to complete the late Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time saga. Sanderson is clearly a master of large-scale stories, splendidly depicting worlds as well as strong female characters.”—Booklist on Warbreaker

“Sanderson again demonstrates his capacity for handling large and complex themes while creating believable characters…. [Warbreaker] is essential reading for fantasy fans.”—Library Journal, starred review
