Book Description

Sept. 11 2012 Lightbringer (Book 2)
From the New York Times Bestselling author of The Black Prism...

Gavin Guile is dying.

He'd thought he had five years left--now he has less than one. With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect continuation of the series. Sept. 20 2012
By RPBio
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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!?
