The magical lands of Seventh Realm prepare for war. With the fall of a sacred city, a new king rises from the ashes and will stop at nothing to exact vengeance on those who destroyed his home. In the meantime, the reluctant Prince Locke struggles to pick up the pieces of his shattered life, eager to find peace despite the coming battle. Blinded by his chaotic use of magic he had not yet mastered, Locke fights for purpose in a world he can no longer see. In the midst of his loss of sight, he still hopes to save the woman he loves who is a world away. Meanwhile, Aaradin tries desperately to repair the damage done to an alliance almost a thousand years old. In his quest to uncover secrets his mentor took to the grave, Aaradin discovers a truth that will propel all of Seventh Realminto a Tide of War that will not stop until all life is extinguished. Can the broken Locke and ambitious Aaradin put their differences aside to save the world, or will the new king destroy the land they both love and erase all hope?

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brandon Sanderson, Warbreaker is the story of two sisters, who happen to be princesses, the God King one of them has to marry, the lesser god who doesn't like his job, and the immortal who's still trying to undo the mistakes he made hundreds of years ago.

Their world is one in which those who die in glory return as gods to live confined to a pantheon in Hallandren's capital city and where a power known as BioChromatic magic is based on an essence known as breath that can only be collected one unit at a time from individual people.

By using breath and drawing upon the color in everyday objects, all manner of miracles and mischief can be accomplished. It will take considerable quantities of each to resolve all the challenges facing Vivenna and Siri, princesses of Idris; Susebron the God King; Lightsong, reluctant god of bravery, and mysterious Vasher, the Warbreaker.
