After finishing The Way of Kings we continue through the Cosmere…and next up is Warbreaker! For this episode we read up until chapter 12, and we’ve already met a wide array of interesting characters. Hear all of our thoughts on Siri, Vivenna, Vasher, Nightblood, and Lightsong, as well as:

  • Awakeners, Returned, and Lifeless, oh my!
  • Appreciating the Prologue chapter
  • Heightening’s and the rules we know so far 
  • Lightsong and questions on how being a Returned works
  • Piecing together the Manywar (more to come on this next week)
  • Bebid, Bluefingers, and the Vasher connection
  • Siri/Vivenna parallels
  • What gods answering “petitions” really means

The reading schedule for Warbreaker is as follows:

  • Next week: 13-26
  • 27-41
  • 42-epilogue

To all of our listeners that made it through The Way of Kings with us, we hope you enjoy our read-along of Warbreaker just as much if not more!
