A new queen has usurped the throne and is leading Cenaria into disaster. The country has become a broken realm with a threadbare army, little food, and no hope. Kylar Stern plans to reinstate his closest friend Logan as King, but can he really get away with murder? In the north, the Godking’s death has thrown Khalidor into civil war. To gain the upper hand, one faction attempts to raise the goddess Khali herself. But they are playing with volatile powers, and trigger conflict on a vast scale. Seven armies will converge to save - or destroy - an entire continent.
Kylar has finally learnt the bitter cost of immortality, and is faced with a task only he can complete. To save his friends, and perhaps his enemies, he must assassinate a goddess. Failure will doom the south. Success will cost him everything he’s ever loved.
A good listen, but the story felt å bitt rushed
leaving manny questions unawnserd and unexplaied.
Great story and good performance. Too bad I finished it. I couldnt put it aside good thing there where many hours per book
With some time between the second and third books in the Night Angel trilogy I was quickly able to pick back up the story and the characters. Brent Weeks increases the pace and action in the third book as there was a lot that had to happen to tie up the overarching story lines. Some of it does feel like it is rushed and could have benefited with more time to expand upon.
The conclusion is however satisfying. There is certainly enough left unsaid to create opportunities for future expansion on this setting but there is no glaringly unanswered questions or disappointment.
The narration is well done, easy to listen to with good character definition.
The Night Angel trilogy was enjoyable and surprisingly epic in the final chapter if a bit rushed. I would recommend it if you are looking for some decent Fantasy to add to your library.
The third and final book in the Night Angel trilogy, Beyond the Shadows is absolutely brilliant. Kylar is bonded to Vi, Jenine is married to the new Godking Dorian and believes Logan Gyre dead, Durzo Blint returns new danger around the Black Barrow rears its ugly head. Once again Paul Boehmer delivers an awesome performance of the audiobook. Brent Weeks just keeps getting better with every book he writes.

Ein grandioses letztes Buch der Trilogie. Wie aus den anderen beiden Büchern zu erwarten ist, kommt es zum großen und vermeintlich letzten Kampf. Es bleibt spannend, es gibt viele Wendungen in den verschiedenen Handlungen. Was mir besonders gut gefällt ist, dass es in diesem Teil zu einer Verschmelzungen der unterschiedlichen Handlungssträngen aus den verschiedenen Ländern kommt.
Es werden weitere Rätsel aufgeklärt, natürlich vor allem zum Ende. Allerdings bedeutet das Auflösen des letzten Rätsels eine Eröffnung unendlicher Möglichkeiten, die Geschichte weiter zu entwickeln. Das ist dem Autor wirklich unglaublich gut gelungen! Die Handlung bleibt darüber hinaus bis in die letzte Minute spannend und man kann das Buch kaum weglegen.
Ich hoffe sehr, es wird noch einen weiteren Teil geben! Schließlich hat Kylars langes (ewiges?) Leben ja gerade erst begonnen...
A terrific last part of this trilogy! As the former two parts already suggested it’s time for the big and supposed last fight. The book is exciting and suspenseful in every minute and the reader does a great job to reflect the feelings of every character in every situation. What I really liked was the fact that finally all strands of action are woven together – from all countries, all characters.
More secrets and questions are revealed. However, the final revelation in the end leaves more than enough room for a continuation of the story. The author did this masterfully well!
I really hope there will be a new series – Kylars long (eternal?) life is ultimately just about to start….

Too much about love and sex, too little mystic and inspiring moments compared to the two previous episodes.
