Review

"Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off."—Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear

"The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks was even better than The Black Prism (and that's saying something!)"—B&N.com

"One of the best epic fantasies I've ever read."—Staffer's Book Review on The Blinding Knife

"The Blinding Knife is a wonderful work of high fantasy with engaging characters facing the perfect antagonists, set in a creatively-wrought and increasingly chaotic world brimful of imaginative magic and interesting politics. Weeks holds fast to the traditions of his genre while adding a compelling new flavor."—The Ranting Dragon

"One of the best Fantasy books of 2012."—A Dribble of Ink on The Blinding Knife

"...A solid, entertaining yarn."—The Onion A.V. Club on The Black Prism

"Weeks has written an epic fantasy unlike any of its contemporaries. It is a truly visionary and original work, and has set the bar high for others in its subgenre."—graspingforthewind.com

"Weeks manages to ring new tunes on...old bells, letting a deep background slowly reveal its secrets and presenting his characters in a realistically flawed and human way."—Publishers Weekly on The Black Prism

I read Black Prism when it came out and loved it. This is a perfect second novel. You learn more about the characters, how the world works, the antagonists and everyone's feelings and motives. Something that I thought Weeks was brilliant to include was additions to the magic system; in a lot of series the magic system stagnates and becomes a little boring, but Weeks found a way around that by adding details and tricks to his system (which is wonderfully unique by the way) that keeps it fresh, but also makes it feel like you're learning with Kip as he grows himself.

If you read The Black Prism, definitely give this a read. If you haven't, then what are you waiting for!?
