Publisher's Summary

Gavin Guile is dying.

He'd thought he had five years left - now he has less than one. With 50,0000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

    "Great followup"

    It was much more than I thought it would be and a great 2nd chapter in the story. It flowed well and it kept you interested not only in the story but also in the characters that the author created. I couldn't stop listening and had great fun going through the book. Be warned there are some parts of the book that for some reason haven't been included the most glaring in chapter 90. Overall great book.

    "Surprised and delighted with this Outstanding book"
    What did you love best about The Blinding Knife?

    This book was amazing. The plot, the flow, the characters, all were impeccable. I've listened to hundreds of books from audible and this stands as one of my top 10. I love the wheel of time and name of the wind and this stands right along with them. Love the unique story line. I am anxious to start book number 2. Honestly, I hate books that I can easily predict or books without depth. This story was fantastic and like I stated above I was surprised and delighted!

    "the series just gets better and better!"

    this is book 2 of the lightbringer series and is even more powerful than the first and the end leaves off with even more Cliffhangers for the next and look forward to downloading the next book. it is brilliantly performed and amazingly well written and wish I could just buy the entire Series right now.

    "An amazing series "

    An amazing series and Simon Vance makes it incredible!
    Brent Weeks is such a talented writer and Simon Vance could make reading the phone book sound good. This is a purchase you won't regret and will listen to more than once. On to The Broken Eye!

    "Expected it,to be amazing"

    This series is really fun to read I can't imagine a more engaging world being crafted. I have read quite a few fantasy series and Brent Weeks have been among my favorite. To quote another writer I like Peter V. Brett "Brent Weeks is soooo good it's almost infuriating". I can't wait to read/listen to more.
