Review: Warbreaker

Warbreaker (Warbreaker, #1)Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Liked the Biochromatic breath ‘magic’ system and plenty of likeable characters with a reasonable number of plot twists, puzzles and reveals. The system is not gimicky as you might expect, it really adds to the richness of the narrative without being too tiresome with explanations – though there were a number of scenes I suspected an editor’s hand with some judicious pruning. A little too much of the naive, attractive young ladies running around in their underclothes/nothing – but not distastefully handled and mostly appropriate for the context. Nightblood oddly reminds me of one of Asimov’s robots.
