    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.

    Jake says: "Shockingly good."
    "Good story, wonderful combat, Good Narrarator"
    Overall

    This book can be a little confusing some times, as the time line slips back and forth in small parts between past and present. But I found this book to be a great listen. I loved the characters, and Yes to the other gentleman, Wetboys can be a hard title to swallow, for a deadly assassin, but that is part of what makes a story and its author unique. Wetboy is a title unique to Brent Weeks stories and thus he makes his book his own.

    I would also like to supply the definition of the word Spartan that so irritated that same reviewer.

    adj.
    1.Of or relating to Sparta or its people.
    2.also spartan

    a.Rigorously self-disciplined or self-restrained.

    b.Simple, frugal, or austere: a Spartan diet; a spartan lifestyle.

    c.Marked by brevity of speech; laconic.

    d.Courageous in the face of pain, danger, or adversity

    Perhapes before slandering a persons choice of words, you should yourself do a little research.


    The reader only used a few changes of tone to seperate different characters, but the author provides enough clarity that it doesn't confuse the listener.

    all in all 5 of 5 stars, and I hope to see more stories from Mr. Weeks.
