Beyond the Shadows: Night Angel Trilogy, Book 3 | [Brent Weeks]

Beyond the Shadows: Night Angel Trilogy, Book 3

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

    "Not crazy impressed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes and no. Having listened to the first two books, I had to listen to this, the last, or I would have gone crazy. But, as with the first two, I found both the writing and reading lacking in anything really special.


    Would you recommend Beyond the Shadows to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not. I thought the story line trite, reworked themes from other titles in the genre.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    There was something weird in the reader's intonation or word emphasis or something that I can't quite put my finger on. As with the first two books, I kept finding myself re-saying the passages in my head to make them sound "right."


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably no.

    "Worth my credits"

    Lately I have had a rough time finding a good series worth spending my credits on. This series, while not the best I have listened to, is still well worth every credit I spent. The narrator was great, but one of my main issues with this series is all the swearing and foul language. It's an enjoyable series.

    Story
    "A perfect conclusion to a beautiful trilogy"
    What did you love best about Beyond the Shadows?

    Everyone seems so real. They all have hopes, dreams, problems, and sacrifices. Brent weeks makes everyone seem human and because of that these books have great value.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Even though this was the end of the trilogy, it did not seem like weeks was just trying to tie everything up ( I'm looking at you inheritance). This was an indepenedent story, complex and compelling the entire way through even though there are things that suggest another book, weeks did not leave things " hanging" just so we would be obligated to buy it.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Boehmer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This book fit him to a tee. He made the characters come to life and he made the story exciting. I have listening to this story 3 times and I believe his voice has played a huge part in that.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If he fights, the ones he love are in grave peril. If he doesn't, everyone dies.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy this book. You will not regret it.

    "Good"

    The first two books were much better but this one had good spots. The story jumped around a lot but kept my interest. I enjoyed the series.

    This book wrapped up the series well. Seemed a bit like a bit too much was crammed into this book trying to tie up story archs. Overall a solid read.

    "Wraps Up the Trilogy"

    This book does an okay job of wrapping up the trilogy, but there are still loose ends and that jolting within the story is still present (see reviews of books 1 & 2). Over all I think the story was interesting enough, but I feel like it could have been much better written and expressed. Still trying to figure out is my 3 credits were well spent or not.

    "Paul Boehmer is becoming my favourite reader"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Beyond the Shadows to be better than the print version?

    I think the audio version would be better than the print version, since it was performed so well.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It was a great cast of characters. Of course, Durzo and Kylar stand out, as they have the most focus.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Boehmer – was your favorite?

    Durzo and Lantano Garuwashi.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I didn't laugh or cry, but I enjoyed it a lot.
