The Blinding Knife: Lightbringer, Book 2 | [Brent Weeks]

The Blinding Knife: Lightbringer, Book 2

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 story. The new narrator is perfect for this and truly brings the story together.

    "Love Brent Weeks!!"

    Weeks really does know how to write an entertaining story. Characters and plot is great and theres a few twists and turn here and there to keep you guessing. Only part i didnt appreciate very much was the selection of orator. I agree that they needed a better performance than the guy from the first book gave but this was a step in the wrong direction for me. Not enough variance between characters and sexs. Also, the tone and feel of Gavin Gile didnt feel right at all to me and i havent even read the books. Still, even with that its worth at least a read if not a listen :)

    "Narration is so much better than book one."

    Great book better than one(maybe it's the narration). The story is interesting and the ending is exciting. Can wait to read book 3.

    The narrator of this book is so much better than the last book. The story is riveting, I had a hard time putting it down.

    "An Immersive Gripping Listen"

    It was a bit of jolt to change narrators from book one to book two, but I love the Lightbringer Series. There is massive character development in this book, although the books stand alone well, you are best served listening in order. A cliffhanger until the end, I can't wait to start book three!

    If you liked The Black Prism, you won't be disappointed. It's the best book I've listened to in a while.

    "Better than the first."

    Better narrator by FAR. Some things I would have done differently but a few nice surprises. I would recommend it

    Story
    "Took a chance. Glad I did!"
    Any additional comments?

    After not being able to finish book 1 in the series, due to the atrocious narator choice, I took a chance on book 2. They changed the series narrator and it's for the better. Simon Vance does a great job bringing the world to life. The magic system is easy enough to understand even after missing most of the first book.

    You can tell Weeks did a lot of research while writing the book and Weeks tells us as much in a nice behind the scenes type of PostScript.

    I won't give anything away and I'll keep this short. Nice character development, a plot that isn't boring and well written action scenes about sums it up. There's also a fair amount of witty banter as well. I like it enough that, after finishing, I went right back to Audible and downloaded book 3. Looking forward to more Mr. Weeks!
