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.

    Story
    "A good start"
    If you could sum up The Way of Shadows in three words, what would they be?

    This book is a wonderful book. The characters are witty, charming, dark, mysterious and searching. There is intrigue throughout the book and I feel like I was never sure of what was what. The characters were interesting, no one was one dimensional. Paul Boehmer did a good job of developing distinct characters for the story as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next book.

    Story
    "Starts a little slow, ends up being a fun ride!!!"

    Started a little slow but it ends up being really good. I wish some items that were explained at the end could of been slowly trickled out through the book instead of a rush of items at the end. Other than that it was really fun book and I am exited to listen to book two.

    "Compelling story, irritating performance "

    I liked this book, but I didn't like the reader at all. He reads very precisely, but with little variation.

    "Very well done"

    This story reminds me of a Star Wars movie done in the fantasy world. Very dark and disturbing at some parts, but you come to care about each of the characters.

    Story
    "It was alot darker then I'm used to reading."

    That aspect of it made it so much realer and deeper though. Not for those of delicate sensibilities for sure but a great read!

    "Great story!!! Glad I finally purchased!!!"

    I looked at this series for years and finally purchased it. Great story and I will read/listen to
    the next in the series.
    It is the usual raise the child to be a killer and love from afar, but is well told.
    Great narration as well.

    "A great tale in any format"

    the Night Angel trilogy is absolutely perfect. The series was my introduction to Weeks' work and he instantly became a favorite author.
    The story is compelling, characters multi-layered and defined and the world he has created feels lived in.

    "Old school book it"

    The narrator and sound editing would pull me right out of the story mid sentence. The antagonists are written well and I did enjoy them. I'd go for this one on the kindle version...
