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 series has just enough action to keep me going, and it doesn't slow down for too long before picking back up again. This series has unforgettable characters - all of which made me think differently of them numerous times. There are twists in the story line, and as a reader I never got bored.
My only problem with this series is the fact that there are no more novels involved. I can't wait to read Black Prism by the same author.
I picked up the first book by chance, out of a moment of boredom (the cover art drew me in!)and after reading the first 80 pages I knew i had to read all the books. I gave the first book to a friend then went out and bought the trilogy. I didnt think twice about having to pay for the first book twice.. truly worth it!
I cant wait for Brent Weeks to come back to these characters and spin another wondrously visceral tale.
I have also given it to my wife to read (who also loved it) and her sister received it for Christmas and read the whole series in under 2 weeks because it was so good.
Definitely a great read.
Weeks could still improve, but for a breakout author, I was pleasantly surprised.

If you like fantasy then this is a series that was really well written and a must read for those Winter nights.Published on Jan. 17 2014 by PeterKO
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. Read morePublished on July 29 2013 by Pat
The story is a blast. I think I read the first book in one long session. The world is not as rich as lets say game of thrones, but it reads way easier. Plots are interesting. Read morePublished on Aug. 10 2012 by Ben
