Publisher's Summary

A new queen has usurped the throne and is leading Cenaria into disaster. The country has become a broken realm with a threadbare army, little food, and no hope. Kylar Stern plans to reinstate his closest friend Logan as King, but can he really get away with murder? In the north, the Godking’s death has thrown Khalidor into civil war. To gain the upper hand, one faction attempts to raise the goddess Khali herself. But they are playing with volatile powers, and trigger conflict on a vast scale. Seven armies will converge to save - or destroy - an entire continent.

Kylar has finally learnt the bitter cost of immortality, and is faced with a task only he can complete. To save his friends, and perhaps his enemies, he must assassinate a goddess. Failure will doom the south. Success will cost him everything he’s ever loved.

Critic Reviews

"I was mesmerized from start to finish. Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, non-stop action and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me admire a writer's work." (Terry Brooks)

A good end to a a good series

With some time between the second and third books in the Night Angel trilogy I was quickly able to pick back up the story and the characters. Brent Weeks increases the pace and action in the third book as there was a lot that had to happen to tie up the overarching story lines. Some of it does feel like it is rushed and could have benefited with more time to expand upon.

The conclusion is however satisfying. There is certainly enough left unsaid to create opportunities for future expansion on this setting but there is no glaringly unanswered questions or disappointment.

The narration is well done, easy to listen to with good character definition.

The Night Angel trilogy was enjoyable and surprisingly epic in the final chapter if a bit rushed. I would recommend it if you are looking for some decent Fantasy to add to your library.

Night Angel is brilliant!

The third and final book in the Night Angel trilogy, Beyond the Shadows is absolutely brilliant. Kylar is bonded to Vi, Jenine is married to the new Godking Dorian and believes Logan Gyre dead, Durzo Blint returns new danger around the Black Barrow rears its ugly head. Once again Paul Boehmer delivers an awesome performance of the audiobook. Brent Weeks just keeps getting better with every book he writes.

A good read

This is a great book in the night angel trilogy. This book has depth, complexity and intrigue without sacrificing action, pace or believability. The build up is excellent and the crescendo near the end feels suitably epic.



The narrator is on brilliant form giving a nice rich tone to the book and allowing you to feel the subtle differences in the cultures.



One word of warning - not all the ends will be tied up, and you may like me, be waiting for another series to be written.

many nights of lady sleep

I loved reading it the 2nd time around as much as the 1st. There are always enough twists and turns to keep the pages flipping. I just couldn't put the book down. I've stayed up way too late saying just one more chapter to myself.

decent end to a great series

the very end was a little cliched and predictable, however this has been a fantastic series. this book isn't as dirty as the previous two, with more improbable (even for the world it's set in) occurrences. still went through the book in just 2 sittings though, so it certainly entertains!

10/10

This is an incredible trilogy. Definitely wish there was more. If only the author would do like what they did with the star wars movies and go back to Durzo's time!

this trilogy will never leave me, I love it.

A compelling and well thought out story I will never forget.

The narrator has done a brilliant job at making me laugh, cry, think and feel this trilogy, I commend his talent, and would strongly recommend reading or listening to these books as it brought strength to me at a time when I didn't know I had any.
