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.

Yes, absolutely! Weeks is far and away my favorite author!
Kyp....Americans love an under dog.
Not certain. He's good though.
When they've all lost faith, and the world is changing.
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!
yes it is a really exciting story
I really like how the magic system evolves
the scene where kip defeat the "red color"
there are many things in the book that I thought about when I didn't listen to it
the story is better than the first book
Yes any book from Brent Weeks is amazing.
I like the way that the main character is finally coming in to his own.
Gavin, and kip.
yes. I tried hahaha
Well read, well written and a very interesting development of the light into matter magic system.
It is definitely some of Mr. Weeks best work. It is even better than the preceding book. The development is more fluent. Also, it will catch you off gaurd and you might find yourself laughing in public. Some of the banter in the dialogue is very enjoyable.
I tried to read the book but ended up listening to it. He had some charters in the book that where hard to read.
I liked that hearing about Kit and his coming to age story.
It was hard to determine sometimes when the person talking voice changed to another. Besides that it he was good
No there was not
The world and/or "magic system" seems shallow in the first book (the story itself is great) but the series' complexity and it's use of it's world in the second book is unique and make for some of the most wonderful plot twists and unexpected magical "developments" I've ever read.
Brent Weeks really knows how to write action into his stories. This really sets him apart.
That would give too much away.
That too would give too much away.
Yes and I nearly did so - it's just too long for that.
I happened to read Brent's Night Angel series first and I'm surprised at how completely different this is and how his writing is more cohesive and consistent in character development and realistic personalities.
It was much more than I thought it would be and a great 2nd chapter in the story. It flowed well and it kept you interested not only in the story but also in the characters that the author created. I couldn't stop listening and had great fun going through the book. Be warned there are some parts of the book that for some reason haven't been included the most glaring in chapter 90. Overall great book.
Weeks has done it again! I wasn't too sure after the Black Prism if I would read book 2 but I'm glad I did. Simon Vance made all the difference bring a much more vibrant reading performance to the novel. Truly top notch voice acting. Weeks character development, swashbuckling action, mixed with what seems to be an ever sweeping story is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Can't wait for the next one and hope it is not the last!
