    Story
    "Keeps getting better"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow's Edge to be better than the print version?

    I have stepped away from printed versions of a book. The reason is that I enjoy the narrators that much. The performance and story mix to give me my entertainment.

    I have cut the cable cord and now find my entertainment in audio books. That is why when you read my reviews I can be very hard on a narrator. My expectations are high and I will abandon a book if the narration irritates me.

    As to this book, Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite narrators. The sound quality is great, unlike some earlier recordings from Audible's early days.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Since I bought all three books I remember them as the whole story. There were few if any lulls in the action. I thought there was a great blend between the romantic drives in the story and the action of battle.

    The author did a great job in showing the consequences of decisions and that not every action is right or wrong, but can create a different outcome.


    Any additional comments?

    The second book is a great continuation and made me want to get the third book as soon as possible.

    Story
    "Weeks delivers a knockout"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Continuing on where he left off with “The Way of Shadows” the transition is seamless. “Shadow’s Edge” packs everything and more, and will leave you ready to dive into the final book. The book is action packed with that touch of humor, and the, no so over the top, romance is all found here. With the addition of epic battles and a few unseen twists this will definitely satisfy anybody who enjoyed the first book.

    My only suggestion is to stop waiting and dive in!

    Story
    "The second of a good trilogy."

    Brent Weeks has done really well with the second book in this series. The characters continue to pull you in and make you care what happens to them. The narrator does not detract from the story instead helps pull you into the world. I will say that the situations and language are not fit for your kids so if you are easily offended I would stay away. This is not to say that the book is riddled with objectionable material, it is not. I would recommend it whole heartedly.

    Story
    "Continues very good first book."

    Shadow's Edge continues the Night Angel Trilogy, and if you liked the first book, you will like this one. The story of Azoth continues as he becomes a full fledged assassin, and falls in love. Shadow's Edge doesn't fall into the boring middle book trap that happens to some trilogys. The story is good, and so is the narration. There are some surprising plot twists at the end as well.

    "Very Good"

    Unlike many second books that just seem to be place holders for the third book Shadow's Edge is a very good book on it's own. I believe that I will enjoy his third book as well as the first and second because of the way in which he has set up his characters. I do not want this review to have any spoilers but, I will say that I am becoming intrigued by the emerging societies and characters Brent Weeks is creating. I am a huge Robert Jordan fan and not since his first two books have I found a series that such potential to last in the heart and imagination. There are a few parts that I found slightly confusing but am hoping will be clarified as time moves on. All in all I say keep writing Mr. Weeks I want to know more. Paul Boehmer is a talented narrator. At first I was skeptical about his voice, but as I listened his voice faded into the story and brought the characters to life. That is my favorite kind of narrator. If you can make me see the story instead of hearing your voice I believe you have done your job superbly and Mr. Boehmer accomplished this beautifully.

    "Good, but"

    Not quite as good as the first. Also, unfortunately, there are now some strong Robert Jordan themes appearing in the story. I'm hoping it doesn't continue to develop into a poor Jordan copy.

    "Say what???"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who have read/listened to everything else


    Has Shadow's Edge turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nope


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Boehmer?

    Steven Pacey, Nick Podehl


    What character would you cut from Shadow's Edge?

    None


    Any additional comments?

    I don't understand all of the great reviews others have given this series. I found the story convoluted and felt irritated many times at the slow pace. I had a hard time remembering who was who and where I was at in the story. Some of this may have been the result of the horrible narration. The concept was great but the execution was poor to say the least. I have read/listened to scores of fantasy novels and have to say this is my least favorite to date.

    "Better and Better!"

    I enjoyed book 2 even more than book1. It is a real page turner that I found difficult to put down. I got through this one in record time! Again, very crude language, and a lot of sexual content, may not be the right choice for all, but for me, I can't wait to start book 3!!
