Annotation Warbreaker Book Wrap-Up

Annotation Warbreaker Book Wrap-Up And . . . those are the annotations! I hope you enjoyed reading them. As you can probably tell, I write them rather quickly.

Annotation Warbreaker Chapter Fifty-Four Vivenna Meets with the Beggar, Then Goes to Get Nightblood She lays it on a little thick here.

Annotation Warbreaker Chapter Fifty-Three

Annotation Warbreaker Chapter Fifty-Three Vivenna Wonders Where Vasher Is This is just a quick scene to update you on what Vivenna is doing. It’s approaching morning, so she’s been sitting and stewing all night. I felt we needed to at least get a glimpse of her here. If you can’t tell, the avalanche has begun.…
