I'm sure it's nothing that hasn't been said already but Brent weeks is one of the More entertaining authors in the business right now and he's only getting better with time in fact he's one of those rare offers that you can see progressing from book to book in a way that you can appreciate and that blows you away.
This is a great listen! Compelling story,with humor and characters you will bond with! Simon Vance tells it all beautifully!
OKAY ,,like I said OH forget what I said I will get it figured out a little later on... I do so love books that keep you guessing... Still don't know where? Who? Why? Great read Paul
Rich, detailed, believable, and not at all boring. At once political and military and magical, the characters express the real of this story effortlessly. Weeks does not make it look easy, but he does make it something you want more of. Excellent narrator; nary s character confused.
For those who enjoy multi-book epic fantasy, that second book can be a challenge building the story arcs that later lead to the big climactic payoff. George R.R. Martin's Storm of Swords is easily the best of that series (and one of the very best fantasy books of all time for me), but you have to get through Clash of Kings to get there. This volume improves upon and builds upon Black Prism leaving a cliffhanger that has to be resolved. Simon Vance is among the very best narrators and really brings the characters to life. Enough said, I have to start The Broken Eye.
I read this book and the Black Prism years ago as they came out, but had to reread because The Broken Eye is here!! AWESOME books, and imagination on Mr Weeks, I am never disappointed in his books!!
