I thought this book was wonderful! I know I shouldnt be making comparisons but I'm going to anyway. I am a big fan of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series and have been waiting for another as good. As far as I can tell from this book, Patrick Rothfuss will soon be a contender, at least in my library. If you like Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson you wont be disappointed with this one.
I like the Night Angel Trilogy, once you read this book you're going to want to read the other two. I like the way the author does not make his lead character infallable. He is allowed to make mistakes and wrong decisions and still be the hero. The story reminds me a bit of the "Assassin" trilogy by Robin Hobb even though the story is quite different. If you enjoyed those books you will most likely enjoy this one as well.
Wonderful story with the best narrator possible chosen to read it! I could listen to this guy read just about anything but the story was also really good so a great buy all around.
You can tell that it is a YA read, but I enjoyed it a lot. The narrator captured the main character perfectly. Easy to listen to and satisfying.
I did not know if I was going to like a "western" book as I had not read any before this one, but decided to give it a try anyway... and I'm glad I did. The pace and voice of the narrator really did justice to the lyrical quality of the writing. Lovely!
Great book as always, and the narrators did a good job too.
