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.

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!

Amazing

I loved this series in paper and I miss placed those copy years ago.
When I spotted it on audible I immediately bought it not expecting it to be anywhere near as good.
I was wrong. I have laughed and cried with this download. Brent Weeks is an amazing author and the way that Paul Boehmer reads the story is just breathtaking.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes a good Sci fi with twists turns and a lot of action.

Spoiled by Poor Narrator

What did you like best about Beyond the Shadows: Night Angel Trilogy, Book 3? What did you like least?

I loved the story. I loved this series when it first came out in print, and have reread it several times since then. For me, this format was spoiled by the narrator, Paul Boehmer.

What other book might you compare Beyond the Shadows: Night Angel Trilogy, Book 3 to, and why?

The only one that come to mind is "Throne of Glass" by Sarah J. Maas, though this is much more gritty and grown up. As to why, I can only offer that they are about magically enhanced assassins. Not perhaps the best reason, but it will have to do :-))

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Boehmer?

Rupert Degas. Having listen to his narration of Patrick Rothfuss' King Killer Chronicles, Mr Degas is a one man theater cast. Brilliant.

Was Beyond the Shadows: Night Angel Trilogy, Book 3 worth the listening time?

Yes and No. Because I like these books so much, I really wanted to listen to them. Mr Boehmer had a few inspired moments, but mostly I found his performance flat and uninspired.

Any additional comments?

I will admit that my opinion of this performance was set early on, in book one. There was a particular scene, which was extremely emotive, and Mr Boehmer read it as though he were reciting a shopping list or reading from the telephone book. I just could forget his lack luster performance of that scene.

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.
