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.

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!
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.
Such a good book. I loved every minute of it. I just finished Beyond the Shadows and I'm starting over with The Way of Shadows. Brent Weeks is an amazing author and I enjoyed Paul Boehmer's reading, well done.
If it tells you anything about how much I enjoy this series this is the second time I have purchased these books. I really only dislike one thing about this series or more accurately this book in particular and that would be that I would have loved for it to go on for a good bit longer to find out a detailed disposition of what became of all the characters. Though in all honesty if mister Weeks HAD done that I would likely have then desired for him to have gone on to tell stories about their children and so on ad infinitum. In short no true "ending" would have made me truly content as I love this story so much.
