Publisher's Summary

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Beautiful and tragic

The story is dark, beautiful, and cunning. The author does an amazing job of ending the trilogy and left me breathless. I would recommend this to any Brandon Sanderson or George Martin fan. Excellently done ❤️

Best of the trilogy

The Night Angel Trilogy grows increasingly multi-threaded, leaving the reader wondering where Weeks is ultimately going. He finally ties almost all threads together in a memorable conclusion that is worth the effort. Narrator Paul Boehmer improves as the book goes on and finishes with fine drama.

I promised a review after book 3

Enough series I've listened to recently have started out well enough, but somewhere along the line left me with only a lukewarm feeling which did not demand I buy the next book. (This is NOT one of those!) So I said I would review it if I liked it enough to read the whole series...

One of the things I liked best about this series was that it didn't point you at one climactic event that you knew would happen at the end of book 3. There were a series of event, each happening because of other actions, that lead throughout the series. No fillers, no little plot devices. At no point did I put it down believing I knew what would happen next.

The narration was excellent; well suited to the story.

I truly enjoyed the whole series, and I really want more! I can't think of a better endorsement than that!

Sappy sappy sappy

First let me say that the ideas and world-building in the series is great and Brent Weeks has a wonderful imagination. But my god could this book have used some serious editing. By the end the plot become so convoluted and disorganized that it loses its meaningfulness. But that doesn't stop the author from trying to make you feel connected through sheer repetition of someone professing their love and or crying every page of the book. I left feeling disappointed in the unrealized potential the books clearly have.

Too much pointless sex

Really liked the first book, and for the most part enjoyed this one. There is way too much pointless love story and sex that doesn't add to the story at all.

Excellent conclusion to series.

Beyond the Shadows wraps up the Night Angel Trilogy. I very much enjoyed this book, as it takes Azoth from Apprentice to hero. He must however juggle his responsibilities to his calling and his new wife. This book is the most exciting of the three, as the action is almost non stop. The conclusion wraps up most of the plot lines, but seems to leave the possibility of another book some time in the future.

Overall, I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. The story was very good, and Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite narrators. I would recommend this series to anyone.

Meh.

No good not great. You can skip whole chapters and not miss a thing. I wish it were less like a comic and more like a novel

Don't listen to this book in public!

Any additional comments?

If you have gotten this far into the Night Angel trilogy, this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster. I had to fight back tears several times, and I lost that fight at least twice. Paul Boehmer captures the characters agony/pain so well it's difficult not to believe it's true, what an amazing performance. If you have come this far in the trilogy, this is a must read!

Amazing Series

Although the first book was relatively slow and was hard to get into, I'm glad I stuck with the series. The series was amazing and the third book was definitely the best.
