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.

    "Brent Weeks' best work yet"

    Brent Weeks is by far my favorite author since the night Angel trilogy but he far surpassed his earlier series with Lightbringer. The narrator of the black prism had a somewhat nasally voice that couldn't quite do justice to the power of weeks' characters. The Blinding Knife however has a new narrator that excels at voicing the personality of the characters, not just the written speech. Overall one of the best audio books I have ever listened to.

    "Combinatorial and Colorful"

    Masterful performance and the story moved well without becoming dry and thoughtless. I found this read relaxing.

    "Damn good"

    This book had both a great author and narrator. While the first book suffered from poor narration, this one more than makes up for it.
