"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
