The Night Angel Trilogy grows increasingly multi-threaded, leaving the reader wondering where Weeks is ultimately going. He finally ties almost all threads together in a memorable conclusion that is worth the effort. Narrator Paul Boehmer improves as the book goes on and finishes with fine drama.
Beyond the Shadows wraps up the Night Angel Trilogy. I very much enjoyed this book, as it takes Azoth from Apprentice to hero. He must however juggle his responsibilities to his calling and his new wife. This book is the most exciting of the three, as the action is almost non stop. The conclusion wraps up most of the plot lines, but seems to leave the possibility of another book some time in the future.
Overall, I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. The story was very good, and Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite narrators. I would recommend this series to anyone.
Although the first book was relatively slow and was hard to get into, I'm glad I stuck with the series. The series was amazing and the third book was definitely the best.
In a trilogy where nothing happens by accident the author sure left a lot of I answered questions. I read that he may go back and make a fourth book is really needed. Hayley a sour taste in my mouth that he would write these three then move to another project without finishing this one. Makes me believe that he was holding the fourth book hostage to his publisher in order to get his other books published. Which by all means they are good books and their own rights. But the open ending of this book is unfair. To take your reader on an adventure so far just to have it end so many open questions so many possibilities is really rude. I do hope that he will go back and make a fourth and even a fifth book I could easily see how it could be done. Until then I will read fanfictions about what happens next

If you have gotten this far into the Night Angel trilogy, this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. I had to fight back tears several times, and I lost that fight at least twice. Paul Boehmer captures the characters agony/pain so well it's difficult not to believe it's true, what an amazing performance. If you have come this far in the trilogy, this is a must read!
I really love this series, and the way everything was tied together in the end was balanced perfectly eith enough spice to keep you hoping Mr Weeks continues the storyline in a new set of books. Well done to both author and narrator
