Brandon Sanderson has written an heroic fantasy depending on originality of character and plot.
His heroines and heroes are outstanding -- especially Vasher, the Warbreaker, whose special relationship with his sentient sword is both sardonic and sinister. The mysteries of life after death, of identity and destiny, the politics of magic, are unveiled through three-dimensional characters.

Not only has Sanderson drawn a freshly imagined world and its society, he has also given us a plot full of unexpected twists and turns. In subtle prose, noteable for its quiet irony, Sanderson tells the story of two sisters and the god they are doomed to marry. Anyone looking for a different and refreshing fantasy novel will be delighted by this exceptional tale of magic, mystery and the politics of divinity. It's fair to say Warbreaker might even take your breath away!
--Michael Moorcock


...I'm going to have to buy the hardcover, aren't I?

Random link for you: http://kageki.hankyu.co.jp/english/tt_stage.html The name of the production is epic in so many ways.

Wait, wait, wait, you didn't know about this book when it was in beta?

He's had it online for free since version 1.0

I warn ya, though, if you read it, you'll have to buy the hardback even more.

I made the executive decision that I wanted to read the published version first, then the beta. Worked well with Mistborn and Mistborn Prime, so...
