"Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off."―Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear^"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
"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 has "drafted" a wonderful magic system, based on color and will. Gavin Guile is the Prism, a drafter that draft all of the different colors of the Spectrum. At the beginning of the story, Gavin learns that he has apparently fathered a bastard son in the war of the false prism years before. Kip is that son and is fat, obnoxious and awkward, a refreshing change from the largely suave characters we read about lately. Guile retrieves Kip just as his village has been destroyed and the story is off to a roaring start.
If you like books where the action is quick and the plot twists keep coming, this is the book for you.
Con: Kip seems to get over the destruction of his village and murder of everyone he has known in the blink of an eye. However, not sure I would have enjoyed reading about him weeping over his fate for the duration of the book so, all in all, I believe it is for the best!
