When I was new to Audible.com, I asked my friend what series I should start first. He told me about the Night Angel series and I started it right away. I have to say that I loved it right away. The characters are interesting and complex. I loved watching bad guys become good guys and good guys become bad guys. If you like Tolken or Game of Thrones, you'll love The Night Angel Trilogy.
Fifty something, small business owner, married, no children. Love travel, beaches, tropical isles, classic cars and listening!
Wasn't sure about this when I started, it hopped around and didn't break very well, but as I got into it, it seemed to get better. It does have some very crude language and sexual situations, so if this bothers you, best to move on to a tame title. Try it, you may just be surprised.
I have read and listened to this book a total of 4 times. It doesn't get old and there is something more to love each time.
I wouldn't dare spoil a second of this book for anyone. Buy it, listen closely.
I cried and laughed. I've never cared so much about a character since Harry potter. This of course, is a far more complex boom with a brilliant magic system which is barely touched upon until the second book. That's how good it is.
This is how assassin tales should be told.
Just a really great flowing story.
All of them. He does an amazing job!
Laughing it caused at moments.
The narrator was fantastic while displaying emotion, and the story was captivating. I can't say enough good things about this book.
The development of each character, their abilities, it was very well done.
His voice was pleasant to listen to, and displayed all ranged of emotions that makes you want to cry and laugh with the characters. Very well done.
I wanted to, sure, but that was not plausible.
I am sad this series ended. I just wanted more and more.
Writer & daddy.
Yes, it's enjoyable enough. Think airport fantasy novel.
Yes, though I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. The prose is salted with street vernacular that just threw me out of the story. It's no classic, but fans of fantasy & young adult novels should find the book entertaining.
I did find the plot to be enough to get me to read the next book.
It is Great
The book was great. It took a little getting used to though. There are a lot of factions or smaller stories going on at the same time and it can get a little confusing especially because of all of the different names. Of course if you are used to reading books like that then that will not be an issue. I loved the way that every thing was balanced in the book. So many times when magic is used in a book or movie the limits of it seem made up (which i guess they are). But in this book the author does a good job with making the limitations seem more real. Also the wave of emotions that the author throws at you keeps you bouncing back and forth on who you like and why. It is a great listen and not one that you will want to walk away from.
The Way of Shadows is the first in the Night Angel Trilogy by newcomer Brent Weeks. Let me start by saying that Brent Weeks writes action like Jet Li fights! He seems to have a good understanding of how action sequences flow and how to describe them in such a way that they are detailed without bogging down. Bravo.
I found nothing lacking in this book, or the narration. I think it might be tedious for some to follow, but it's well worth it!
Nah, It's really good but once is enough.
Nah. It's really good book but not so engrossing that you can't put it down.
