Publisher's Summary

The nail-biting continuation of the Lightbringer series from New York Times best seller Brent Weeks.

When does an empire fall?

The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four - and those are falling before the White King's armies.

Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken, and trapped in a prison crafted by his own hands to hold a great magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison Gavin may not be alone.

Kip Guile will make a last desperate attempt to stop the White King's growing horde. Karris White attempts to knit together an empire falling apart, helped only by her murderous and possibly treasonous father-in-law, Andross Guile.

Meanwhile Teia's new talents will find a darker use - and the cost might be too much to bear. Together they will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse.

    "Filler novel"

    Marked release date on calendar. Sad that this was a filler novel. No emotional victories small or large, just grinding, plodding, story. This book contains the depth and emotional weight of a single chapter from the other books in the series. Seems like the author wants to drag out the story of such a beautiful story arc. Beyond impressed with the series until now. May try one more but depends on how long until release.

    "Cut short at a climax. No relief"

    Feeling strung along. Was it not finished, or are they stringing us along to sate the hunger for revenue?

    Excellent half of a book...

    "Filler Book."

    I have mostly enjoyed the lightbringer series up until now and was exciting to pick this up.

    And I have to say after finishing this listen I'm left conflicted. It's not a complete filler book, and there's some interesting revelations.

    However unfortunately those are few and far between. Everything relevant could easily have been summed up in a couple chapters.

    Probably 80% consists of dialog between 2 or more characters, often with conflicting view points. It's literally chapter after chapter after chapter of this, people "squaring off" with talking back and forth.

    So much so that I have the say the pacing really suffers, and remains mostly uninteresting, but I was never overly bored either.

    Nothing is this book is griping, intense or all that exciting, it sort of just plods along chapter after chapter.

    Hard one to recommend. But I will say if you desperately need something to listen to pass the time, and like the series, this will just be "ok"

    "Doesn't signficantly advance the plot"

    I'm a Brent Weeks fan, and I enjoy the Lightbringer series. The series, in my opinion, is absolutely worth listening to.

    That said, as far as the storyline goes, this is easily the weakest of the series so far. The plot is not significantly advanced by the events depicted herein, but it does offer up a great deal of character development for Gavin Guile, one of the two main characters. He is revealed to be a far more flawed character than perhaps the reader would have been willing to accept earlier in the series.

    It is a long installment, and the events advance only a very short period in that time, but I did feel it was justified by the degree to which Gavin was changed in my perception.

    I appreciated the commitment given to developing Gavin's character, but it was also a long wait for this installment, and now it seems an even longer wait for the next to appear.

    "I hate how it switches over"

    you have to follow along very carefully because he switches storylines and you maybe lost and I hate that when he does that it's like we're missing some parts of the book

    "Too Much Religion!"

    Come on man! I was really looking forward to this book and it's a super bummer as it focuses on politics and religion the whole time. What happened to the cool color wars and complex combinations of what can be done with luxon? FLIP SOME CARDS BRENT! It's getting boring.

    "Not great"

    I didn't like this one as much as the previous 3 books. It does have some good parts but overall not much seems to happen in this book. It's also more into sexuality than I'd like. The reader changes several characters voices for no apparent reason. I hope the next one does better.
