If you read The Black Prism, definitely give this a read. If you haven't, then what are you waiting for!?
I could barely put this book down. The plot is as fast-paced as ever, with sharp twists and turns and significant character growth (as well as the unveiling of many secrets). We see our favourite characters from The Black prism, meet many new ones and learn more about the politics and social structure of the world that Brent has built.
I cannot wait for the third installment! I love how nothing is straightforward, or simple, to Brent Weeks. Brent writes complex characters and conflicts, where you can see logic in both sides. Like The Night Angel Trilogy, a common theme for me was that nothing is purely evil or purely good. Indeed... Brent's writing is a multi-faceted Prism.
I like the board game Knight King that Kip played with his cruel grandfather; the calculations adds up; the sports, the training and challenges to be qualified as Blackguard.
Week uses advanced techniques of storytelling: captivates my interest, creates suspense, and uniqueness. Most of all I like the vivid descriptions of the Prism's emotional experience in the love making with his lover versus with his wife, is appropriate, real life and truly well written. The story touches our mind and soul.
Absolutely would recommend this book, Five Stars.
Also check out the Night Angle Trilogy if you like the Lightbringer series!
