Now Reading: Beyond the Shadows by Brent Weeks

Book Three of the Night Angel Trilogy
Published: December 1, 2008
ISBN-10: 0316033669
ISBN-13: 978-0316033664

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has once chance - a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom.

In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends--and perhaps his enemies--he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

I am very excited to finally finish the Night Angel Trilogy. Here in the conclusion, after so much happening in the second book, Shadow's Edge, you couldn't possibly think some greater scheme is at large. WRONG! Brent Weeks made the choice to throw the large battle of Pavvil's Grove in Shadow's Edge, ready to impress you in Beyond the Shadows. It was like the Battle of Pelennor Fields all over again.

So here, after only reading the back flap, I know I'm expecting a fireworks finale. Kill a goddess? A new Godking rises? This means Kylar is taking on a hit greater than the last -- he's going right to the source, the goddess Khali, who empowers the Godking, his Vurdmeisters and wytches with the corrupting "vir." It'll be one heck of a showdown, for Kylar is a user of Talent, the one force of magic that opposes the vir all together. It's like the two sides of The Force. Oh yeah, going to be fireworks for sure.

Review of Beyond the Shadows to come.

Peace and Writing Love,

I believe this as a philosophy, from a man who saw war and setback, and conquered all to bring us the greatest fantasy series that has ever been published. Leave your little comment and I'll get back to you.
