"A compelling epic tale of heroism, vengeance, and magic" --- The Greenman Review

"An impressive debut." --- SFFWorld.com

"Best fantasy of the year, possibly the decade." --- BooksMonthly.co.uk

"Weeks creates a rich blend of politics, culture and character in the Night Angel Trilogy... then throws in magic-using assassins. Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off."—Peter V.

Format: Paperback
I just finished reading the entire Night Angel Trilogy. I couldn't put it down, ever. The books are fast paced but most action-packed chapters are interspersed with more informative, plot and character building, chapters. Brent Weeks found a fine balance between the two.

The series is about a guild rat, Azoth, turned assassin. Fate hands him an amazing object that as the series progresses offers more mysteries than answers. In the final, fast paced novel, Beyond the Shadows, everything is answered and I was left with a sense of satisfaction that I haven't felt since reading The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Even though each book brings more mystery than the last they each have solid conclusions. Each of the first two books in the series left enough mystery to leave me yearning to read the next in the series but ended with a satisfactory conclusion.

The characters each have their own quirks and are very consistent in how they act and react. My favorite character was Durzo who often acts as comic relief and of whom most of the mystery in the series revolves around.

Overall, this was a very well written series with no inconsistencies which often plague new writers. I'm looking forward to Brent Weeks' next work, "The Black Prism". He has definitely proven himself as an author with this series.

Format: Paperback
I never read a book twice, because I have a great memory for the storylines - this entire trilogy I've read twice, it's going into my permanent book collection, and I expect to read the entire series again - for the 3rd time - this coming fall. I was hooked by the first page of the first book and could not pull myself away. I read while making and eating breakfast, I read at lunch time, I read at dinner time, I read in bed. I visited Weeks' website and all the fan-forums. OK, so I'm totally addicted.

This series is filled with the classic quest theme and classic and tragic heroes of all descriptions abound the pages. Characters are complex with an inner life and thought process that demonstrates Weeks ability to generate dynamic and full-fledged characters. My heart wanted to scoop Azoth, Doll Girl and Jarl out of the streets that they struggled to survive. As Azoth's apprenticeship to Durzo evolves, the relationship that starts out simply as master-apprentice - and a means of survival for Azoth - grows into much more for both characters and which culminates in the third book into mutual love and respect of an adult father-son relationship (no they are not related). Supporting characters are just as strong and intriguing.

You'll find these books are page-turners and the threads that go to create the fabulous tapestry of this story coloured by good, evil, hope, human struggle, faith, friendship, trust, personal sacrifice and belief that a better day will come.

Do yourself a favour and buy the trilogy. I bought the first book and then had to go back online three days later to get books two and three. I loaned the first book to a neighbour, who two days later was begging for the next in the series. We just had lunch today to discuss these books and Weeks' promise of a 4th book to come sometime in the future. How many times can you say that about a book?

This trilogy is dark, thrilling and exquisitely written. Character development is profound, meaningful and far from boring. Politics are present but not overwhelming, so is war. The fighting action is fascinating and I really enjoyed how Weeks slowly unfolds the mysterious magic in Midcyru, his really complete and grandiose world.

Totally worth a reading, or ten.

I'm a huge fantasy junky but I get tired of the same old thing. But I decided to pick up The Way of the Shadows when I was in a local book shop and loved the front cover cause I thought the character kinda looked like Altair from the Assassin's Creed video game by Ubisoft. What I got was a book that was nothing like Assassin's Creed nor any of the other High Fantasy cliche's that permeate the market.

The Night Angel Trilogy is some of the best storytelling to be had out there. I recommend it to everyone who will listen to me that even has a slight interest in fantasy. Although to be fair I wouldn't really call this traditional fantasy.

It is a dark but inspirational tale that makes you want to believe in yourself. I honestly don't think I've ever come across such engaging, emotionally involving characters. It may just be me to be fair but I don't think so. To see the high's in life we also have to know the low's and this book shows us both.

Yes there is swearing, and there are parts of the book that might make you cringe at the horrors of what the characters that you love are exposed to. But these are all things that happen in the real world and the story is richer for it.

I don't want to oversell this book but I also don't think I've done it justice. It's simply one of my favourite books/trilogies of all time.

But don't believe me. Here are the links to other websites with more reviews so you can get an idea of how good these books truly are.
