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.

    "Phenomenal"

    Rich, detailed, believable, and not at all boring. At once political and military and magical, the characters express the real of this story effortlessly. Weeks does not make it look easy, but he does make it something you want more of. Excellent narrator; nary s character confused.

    "Compelling middle book"

    For those who enjoy multi-book epic fantasy, that second book can be a challenge building the story arcs that later lead to the big climactic payoff. George R.R. Martin's Storm of Swords is easily the best of that series (and one of the very best fantasy books of all time for me), but you have to get through Clash of Kings to get there. This volume improves upon and builds upon Black Prism leaving a cliffhanger that has to be resolved. Simon Vance is among the very best narrators and really brings the characters to life. Enough said, I have to start The Broken Eye.

    "Best Narrator I've heard"

    Undeniably great plot in a series that continues to enthrall be, but the narrator was what made this better than reading it!
