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

The Blinding Knife: Black Prism, 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.

    "Awesome job"
    What made the experience of listening to The Blinding Knife the most enjoyable?

    Awesome job by both the author and narrator. Eagerly awaiting the third book in the series, due out in August of 2014. No solid release date for the Audible version of which I am aware. Keep up the awesome work Mr. Weeks.

    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to this book twice now. It was mind blowing both times. Character development and story line were fantastic. A huge fan of Brent Weeks. Really enjoyed this book and can't wait for the "The Broken Eye".

    "Narrator is WAY better!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator didn't suck like the first book's narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    They must have listened to the reviews on the first Blinding Knife series, because this narrator is leaps and bounds better for this read than the previous. He fits the personality of the characters much better.

    Can't wait for the next one! Hurry up Weeks!

    "Amazing!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, absolutely! Weeks is far and away my favorite author!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kyp....Americans love an under dog.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not certain. He's good though.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When they've all lost faith, and the world is changing.


    Any additional comments?

    Weeks is a master. The Night Angel trilogy is my favorite series, to have another from the same guy that is nearly as good is amazing!
