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, excellent series, the narrator for this installment infinitely better than the first. He capture the spirit and pacing of the book immediately and delivers a good performance for each of the characters.
as I said with the black prism this book series is fantastic, every character is worth remembering and every chapter is a delight, I do as well look forward to the day I can lean 9 Kings
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 :)
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!
