Having read Fantasy for many years, I have reached the point where I want a good story that doesn't have magicians and magical items dominate the story.
Book One was good. Books Two and Three: Argh!!! I was on magic overload in the final two books.
It was an okay read.
Enjoyed the first listen would be awhile before I listened again
This book was not my normal read and I don't have that much to compare it with but I did enjoy it
I must admit that Mr Boehmer was an excellent reader, he did a fine job of each character and his talent is a pleasure to listen too.
Mr Weeks had both feel good moments and emotional moments in his story, did a great job
Look forward to reading the next one
I'm a soldier who likes fantasy novels
This book was captivating. I listened to all three books and loved them. I listen to books while I'm driving to work and every day I listened to this book I didn't want to leave my car. It's better than watching a movie! The whole night angel trilogy is just amazing! It's a must read/listen
I loved the first book. Really. But then I got to the second, and I was a little concerned. The story was ok, but it started doing what a lot of good series writing does...get melodramatic in the middle.
By the time I got to the middle of the third, I almost stopped listening. I wondered if it was the same writer. The reader is good, so it could have simply been poor direction in a production of decent writing. I don't know, but something sent the whole thing off track.
The ending redeems it somewhat, but then, I didn't like how the Wolf turned out.
The entire series is really good. Worth the credits.
Not having a book in your hands so you can drive.
Yes and no. Having listened to the first two books, I had to listen to this, the last, or I would have gone crazy. But, as with the first two, I found both the writing and reading lacking in anything really special.
Probably not. I thought the story line trite, reworked themes from other titles in the genre.
There was something weird in the reader's intonation or word emphasis or something that I can't quite put my finger on. As with the first two books, I kept finding myself re-saying the passages in my head to make them sound "right."
Beyond the Shadows wraps up the Night Angel Trilogy. I very much enjoyed this book, as it takes Azoth from Apprentice to hero. He must however juggle his responsibilities to his calling and his new wife. This book is the most exciting of the three, as the action is almost non stop. The conclusion wraps up most of the plot lines, but seems to leave the possibility of another book some time in the future.
Overall, I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. The story was very good, and Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite narrators. I would recommend this series to anyone.
Although the first book was relatively slow and was hard to get into, I'm glad I stuck with the series. The series was amazing and the third book was definitely the best.
I enjoyed the series and this was a good end. It drags a bit in the middle, but it comes together.
The characters have lots of depth and tell a good story.
