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.

    "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.

    "let down"

    I was in love with the first 2 books, but all of a sudden the author decided to deal with the hornyness of all the virgin men in this one book. Beyond that the story was nothing short of the awesomeness I had come to love in the first to, until the character minds wandered off the battle feel and on his or her wife or husband at home. The other books seemed far more balanced with love and killing and a war and kings being killed.

    "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.

    "Absolutely Amazing!"

    I've read the books and listening to them was just as gratifying. I would recommend this to anyone looking for fantasy adventure!

    "enjoyable"

    I thought it was good - exactly the enjoyment I expect from the author, and the narrator did a good job - distinctive character voices with only a few seeming missteps with the voice oe words. maintaining the expectations I have from this author :-)

    "overall great book. Elene was supremely annoying."

    overall great book. could have done with a much smaller portion of elene though. I understand she is essential to the story but she was so irritatingly naïve. get chapters with kylar were pretty much skippable and kylar was a much better hero when she wasn't around.

    I LOVE audio books. I drive 20 hours per week on average and use that time to listen to books. I love long books, and multi book series.

    "Good strong finish"
    Would you listen to Beyond the Shadows again? Why?

    This was a really good finale to the trilogy. I liked where Weeks went with the story.


    What other book might you compare Beyond the Shadows to and why?

    This series, while much much shorter, and more adult in content, is up there with Robert Jordan's epic Wheel of Time series.


    What three words best describe Paul Boehmer’s voice?

    Whiney, petulant, expressive.


    Any additional comments?

    The 3 stars for "overall" are because of the performance, not the story.
