The characters just never became believable and the story just seemed to spin out of control. Seemed like everytime he wanted to put it back on track he just interjected another character or changed the nature of the character. I keep reading the series hoping it would finally form into some kind of logic but it just never happened. I know you suspend your disbelief, but the story should weave a 'world' that holds together. The decisions and motivations of the characters just are not credible. At every turn in the story one is just left wondering, really?!
The performence was hard to rate as the story was so weak I am not sure that anyone could have done a great job with it.
Don't waste your time
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.
Great series, very well written but this book jumped the shark. I'm afraid to get the next one, don't know if I want to use a credit or spend the time
I loved everything about the Night Angel Trilogy. Ive told all my friends about it and I wil DEFINATELY be reading this again!
This trilogy is very similar to the Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson which I also loved
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.
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.
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 he fights, the ones he love are in grave peril. If he doesn't, everyone dies.
Buy this book. You will not regret it.
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.
Brian is an avid reader. He is interested in great stories and human behavior. His job is as a behavioral specialist in public schools.
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.
I think the audio version would be better than the print version, since it was performed so well.
It was a great cast of characters. Of course, Durzo and Kylar stand out, as they have the most focus.
Durzo and Lantano Garuwashi.
I didn't laugh or cry, but I enjoyed it a lot.
