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.

    "An amazing series "

    An amazing series and Simon Vance makes it incredible!
    Brent Weeks is such a talented writer and Simon Vance could make reading the phone book sound good. This is a purchase you won't regret and will listen to more than once. On to The Broken Eye!

    "Expected it,to be amazing"

    This series is really fun to read I can't imagine a more engaging world being crafted. I have read quite a few fantasy series and Brent Weeks have been among my favorite. To quote another writer I like Peter V. Brett "Brent Weeks is soooo good it's almost infuriating". I can't wait to read/listen to more.

    "Didn't see that coming"

    Loved it, from the start to finish. Hard to stop listening to it. Was amazing to see how the characters developed in their own way. Sadly fell out of love with my favorite character, but feel they may or may not come back in the 3rd. Can not wait to start the next part of the series.

    "A great follow through"

    I was referred to Brent Weeks by Mr. Sanderson who said these books most closely resemble his (Mr. Sanderson's style). Not only is that true but that Mr. Weeks has his own style in many ways as well. the book was scintillating, made me care for characters, confused me of the morality of some and generally has been quite a fun listen! Simon Vance is also great!

    "Awesome book!"

    I love this book- the author tells a great story. I really like the narrator as well, but I don't like how he does female voices. He has a hard time picking a "voice" for female characters, sticking with it throughout, and not making them sound dainty when their lines are firm.
