    In a world scarred by an apocalyptic past, evoking a time both 2,000 years past and 2,000 years into the future, untold thousands gather for a crusade. Among them, two men and two women are ensnared by a mysterious traveler, Anasûrimbor Kellhus - part warrior, part philosopher, part sorcerous, charismatic presence - from lands long thought dead. The Darkness That Comes Before is a history of this great holy war, and like all histories, the survivors write its conclusion.

    Story

    A touchy feely exploration of world domination with lots of bloodshed. Mix in a bit of homosexuality and endless self-loathing, and you have almost written this book yourself. Still, even having said that, it somehow holds your interest...

    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

    Sometimes a great narrator can save an uninteresting book, sometimes a great book can be sullied by a poor narrator. Sadly this book falls into the latter category. Having listened to and enjoyed the 'Night Angel Trilogy' I was also looking forward to the Black Prism. The story itself was gripping and hard to stop listening to. However, the narration was nearly unbearable. It is somewhat like having Keanu Reeves read you a bedtime story, dude.
