    Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left - now he has less than one. With 50,0000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

    Story

    Book 2 of the black prism series is great. it continues with the story nicely allowing you to see how each character develops as it moves. it makes you want to know what will happen next.

    Now as for the reader, Simon Vance is a VAST improvement than the reader for book 1, Cristofer Jean. Simon made listening to the book a great pleasure. he made the characters identifiable, unlike Jean whom made Kip sound like a whinny brat and Gavin sound like Keanu Reeves.

    I do like like this book and can't wait for the next. I hope that Simon Vance will stay as the reader for book 3

    Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals. But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

    Story

    Cristofer Jean as a reader makes the main characters seem like idiots. (think "Bill and Ted's excellent adventure!). Gavin, one of the main characters, seems to have a plug up his nose. I had to force my way through the book listening to him. I would like to see if another reader could do a better job, but I know that will never happen.

    Now Brent Weeks did a great job with this book and it does want me want to read the second book when it comes out. You want to know how the characters will develop as their story progresses. I look forward to see what will happen next.

    Over all I'd would say reading the paperback book would be better than listening to this one. I pray that Brent Weeks or his publisher will choose someone else to read the next book to follow.

    For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name.

    Overall

    my first audio book. I enjoyed this book very much. Only thing that bugged me was if a chapter changes focus from one character to another character that was else where in the story, it seemed that the pause or "change" over was a little short, but over all I adapted well to this.

    The story moves very well, some spots are little slow, but its few. The plot leaves you wondering whats going to happen next. I would recommend this book and look forward to the others when released (the last audio book hasn't been released when I wrote this review)
