Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson.
Siri, Vivenna and their religious sister live high up in Mountains, on the remote edge of Hallandren. They live in the capital city of their, so called rebel province. They’re life is one of simplicity and ease, being of the Royal line. Their Highlands history is one of hate and loathing of their neighbours, the Hallandren, who had long since overthrown their ancestors and kicked them out, taking the Kingdom of Hallandren for themselves. Now the tensions couldn’t be higher between the two neighbouring factions. The hateful kingdoms had made a truce, that stated when it was Vivenna’s 20th birthday she’d be wed to the God King of the Hallandren. So Vivenna trained in courtship for twenty years with Siri in her perfect shadow. But instead the Highlanders sent untrained, rebellious Siri in Vivenna’s stead.
Teen Rating: Another immaculate performance by Sanderson. 4.5/5 . 14+.
