Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Beautiful and tragic"

    The story is dark, beautiful, and cunning. The author does an amazing job of ending the trilogy and left me breathless. I would recommend this to any Brandon Sanderson or George Martin fan. Excellently done ❤️

    Story
    "Too much pointless sex"

    Really liked the first book, and for the most part enjoyed this one. There is way too much pointless love story and sex that doesn't add to the story at all.

    "Meh."

    No good not great. You can skip whole chapters and not miss a thing. I wish it were less like a comic and more like a novel

    "Best of the trilogy"

    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.

    Story
    "Soft core porn with a rushed, poorly executed story"

    Weeks is a good writer as show cased by his more recent series but this book is bad and ends the series in such a poor fashion.
    The constant sex scenes are gratuitous and do not add to the story. The topic of sex, nor is the detail, especially in the context of young men as we all know that's often on their mind, but this reads more soft core porn than book.
    The story is rushed, too often too convenient and shallow. The prophecy comes out of no where, a guy from the weakest country becomes high king and overt sex every other chapter? Rush job, poorly thought out and executed even worse.
    Just a really disappointing end to a decent series.

    "Kinda Pervy"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I don't get Brent Weeks... some of his material is so great, but then he keeps side-tracking into these unnecessary and uncomfortable sexual interludes. It really detracts from the plot.

    I've always loved books, and the word voracious is not robust enough to describe my habit. Now I have to multi-task, so I listen. A lot!

    Story
    "I promised a review after book 3"

    Enough series I've listened to recently have started out well enough, but somewhere along the line left me with only a lukewarm feeling which did not demand I buy the next book. (This is NOT one of those!) So I said I would review it if I liked it enough to read the whole series...

    One of the things I liked best about this series was that it didn't point you at one climactic event that you knew would happen at the end of book 3. There were a series of event, each happening because of other actions, that lead throughout the series. No fillers, no little plot devices. At no point did I put it down believing I knew what would happen next.

    The narration was excellent; well suited to the story.

    I truly enjoyed the whole series, and I really want more! I can't think of a better endorsement than that!

    Story
    "Convoluted"

    If you' are, like me, kind of through the great temporary epic fantasy writers and getting to their older works and the new potentials - you might maybe like this enough to get through this. It's the author's first epic story and it shows. The good news is- he learns from it and the result is Lightbringer saga - and that one is wonderful. If you haven't read it - well, read Lightbringer instead :-). This story has potential but some clumsiness, the convoluted plot and things that even a positively biased reader can't buy.... Kind of smother it. Too bad, but as I said - it's a beginning and he writes way better now. The narration is a disaster zone that doesn't help the story at all!!! The horrible emphasis on every sentence, wrong intonation (as if he doesn't understand the whole sentence)..... Grrrrr. If a narrator is still a bother after 3 books, it really is bad, because one can get used to A LOT after a while. i'll think twice before reading another book narrated by him.

    Story
    "Sappy sappy sappy"

    First let me say that the ideas and world-building in the series is great and Brent Weeks has a wonderful imagination. But my god could this book have used some serious editing. By the end the plot become so convoluted and disorganized that it loses its meaningfulness. But that doesn't stop the author from trying to make you feel connected through sheer repetition of someone professing their love and or crying every page of the book. I left feeling disappointed in the unrealized potential the books clearly have.
