This post will definitely contain spoilers. If you’ve not read Brandon Sanderson’s Warbreaker I would strongly urge you to skip this post.
I am currently on Chapter 36. Wow. That’s really about all I can say right now, especially considering the events that just happened in the previous chapter. All along I’ve really liked the mercenaries, but I honestly have to say I suspected something like this. Definitely not exactly like what happened, but that they were more sinister than they appeared. I still wonder about Denth’s past. I’m looking forward to Vivenna learning how to use her Breath.
I’m really curious to learn more about Vasher, too. There have been only a few short pages devoted to him and it’s driving me crazy. Is he bad? Is he good? Is he apathetic? What the heck’s up with that sword? All in due time I’ll find out, I suppose.
I really like the turn of events for Siri and Susebron. I find their relationship sweet and enjoyable, and I’ve laughed a bit, too, at the God Kings’ naïveté. I’m not sure what will happen to Susebron and I don’t know how to guess. Hopefully he doesn’t die.
Lightsong is still getting on my nerves, though not as much as earlier in the book. I still think his character is really weak and annoying. His quest to learn more about his past is slightly interesting, but his involvement with Blushweaver is eye-rolling. So is Blushweaver, for that matter. I’m sure the Returned will play a crucial part in whatever is going to happen, but so far I could care less for any of them. If Lightsong would just stop acting like an immature, flippant, uncaring person then I’d be happy.
I like the mystery and secrecy with all the priests and servants, too. Not sure really what’s going to happen with them or who to trust, but I pretty much don’t trust Scoot. Surely he can’t care about Lightsong.
Anyway, these are my thoughts. If you’ve read the book, chime in. If not, I hope you didn’t read this post and that you aren’t reading this paragraph.
