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.

    "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.

    "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
    "Diapointing - Shallow and unbeleivable characters"
    What was most disappointing about Brent Weeks’s story?

    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?!


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time

    Story
    "Books Two & Three Not Where I Wanted Series to Go"

    Having read Fantasy for many years, I have reached the point where I want a good story that doesn't have magicians and magical items dominate the story.

    Book One was good. Books Two and Three: Argh!!! I was on magic overload in the final two books.

    It was an okay read.

    "Great series enjoy the characters interactions"
    Would you listen to Beyond the Shadows again? Why?

    Enjoyed the first listen would be awhile before I listened again


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

    This book was not my normal read and I don't have that much to compare it with but I did enjoy it


    What does Paul Boehmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I must admit that Mr Boehmer was an excellent reader, he did a fine job of each character and his talent is a pleasure to listen too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Mr Weeks had both feel good moments and emotional moments in his story, did a great job


    Any additional comments?

    Look forward to reading the next one

    "Utterly amazing"

    This book was captivating. I listened to all three books and loved them. I listen to books while I'm driving to work and every day I listened to this book I didn't want to leave my car. It's better than watching a movie! The whole night angel trilogy is just amazing! It's a must read/listen

    Story
    "Not as good as the first."

    I loved the first book. Really. But then I got to the second, and I was a little concerned. The story was ok, but it started doing what a lot of good series writing does...get melodramatic in the middle.

    By the time I got to the middle of the third, I almost stopped listening. I wondered if it was the same writer. The reader is good, so it could have simply been poor direction in a production of decent writing. I don't know, but something sent the whole thing off track.

    The ending redeems it somewhat, but then, I didn't like how the Wolf turned out.

    Sigh.

    What did you love best about Beyond the Shadows?

    The entire series is really good. Worth the credits.

    Not having a book in your hands so you can drive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Nah.


    Any additional comments?

    Nah.

    Story
    "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.
