Publisher's Summary

For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics---and cultivate a flair for death.

    "love the book"

    read the book loved it so much i grabbed the audio book as well no its my nightly ritual and the only way i can get to sleep. the story is great but you really have to read to the end of the trilogy if you want to fully understand the way he builds everything up.

    "Finally"

    I have been looking for a book for a while that is good... I have had a lot of duds... This one though reminds me a lot of the name of the wind or the sword of truth...

    A coming of age story with plenty of grit violence and pg sex... Great antagonists and anti heroes overall an above average story and a great start to this trilogy

    GRIZZ

    "Very good fantasy series so far!"

    Coming off a 2 year plus binge on the Wheel of Time series, I was looking for something to scratch the itch for fantasy and fill the significant void left by WoT. This was a great book that helped me move on. :-) Very intriguing story so far, that gets a little dark/heavy at times (especially after WoT) but always enjoyable. I'll definitely read the rest of this series. The book seemed a little brief with only 21 hours of narration. Finished in less than a month (slow pace), so I'm eagerly awaiting my next Audible credit.

    "Great Read"

    I'm glad I stumbled across this audible book when looking at which other ones Paul Boehmer had narrated. I first heard him narrate the Dragonlance books. The story was great and did not disappoint me at all despite the characters being kids to begin with. I've found I enjoy books with more of a descriptive writing which this has.

    "Intense"

    I loved the overall story though the gore was very directive and the language very strong. It is very well written and worth the read if you can handle it.

    "Simply boring."

    Long winded characters and lack of any real development. Clumsy and rather obvious story tropes.

    "Slow Start"

    At first I was not sure about the story. Then it got me and I was hooked. Give it a chance and you will live it,

    "Please write a ending"

    Before I read this trilogy I read the Eragon series this is way more adult oriented. Just please write a proper ending don't be one of those douchebags that refuses to write the next book just because they're afraid they can't write another series just as well so they hold it hostage.
