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 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.
Reading Fantasy and SCI-FI on audible.
Well written, hilarious in parts, tragic in others, this is a great book. I loved the character development and the final outcome is interesting - sets you up for the next book of course. The performance was great. Worth the listen.
Totally engaging. Kept try to find reasons to throw the headphones back on and keep going. I'm finding this world to be a whole different genre than I've experienced before and is thoroughly enjoyable.
I've read this book 7 tp 8 times already and I know I'll read all of his books several more times in the future! can't go wrong with any of his books. as well as Simon Vance the narrator is exellent, making a blind man's time listening to him worth every second!
