Description

This fantastic new recording was released in September 2016 and comes from the acclaimed narrator of The Lightbringer series Simon Vance.

The start of a brand new trilogy from the New York Times bestselling author of The Way of Shadows.

Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

Slow start but gets quickly better

I was a bit deterred at the begining by the first chapters that lack passion, but the depth of the characters and the solid background regarding the magic aspects makes it interestimg. i will definitly listen to the next one

Love the print book...audio not so much.

What did you like best about The Black Prism? What did you like least?

I truly enjoyed this book in print and was looking forward to a good listen. The narration is definitely not one of Audible's best efforts and I was relieved to see Simon Vance will be narrating the next two books.

Great story ruined by robotic narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes- if Simon Vance was reading it!

What other book might you compare The Black Prism to and why?

Brent Weeks reminds me of Branfon Sanderson

What didn’t you like about Cristofer Jean’s performance?

You may as well have the kindle robot read aloud. Worst ever voice. No inflection. Terrible timing. It was like listening to someone read it when they don't actually understand English. The syntax, timing, and colour was missing. Just awful.

Could you see The Black Prism being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Probably a bit complicated for the screen plot wise but I could see Charlie Hannum as Gavin/Dazen

Any additional comments?

Great story which I have read 3 times and will never listen to again from this narrator.

Good story but very stilted delivery ruins it

Good story but very stilted delivery ruins it
The narration sounds as if it was designed for children and reminds me of the Simpsons😝

Wooden.

Good story, etc. Unfortunately, I felt like I was being addressed by a plank of wood. Poorly performed.

Really Good

Listened straight through. really good world building. a lot of intrigue and good amount of kingdom politics that is fascinating. The characters all have distinct personalities and relationships that have a good flavors to the ears. The characters arent stupid and arent superficial parodies and stereotypes that u know already. The superpower color structure is organized and u can easily understand the system But u will not understand it fully in the first half only at the end do u get all the knowledge to get a proper handle on how it works. It doesn't interrupt the story or prevent u from enjoying it.


I'm pleasantly surprised by how good the book is and how it flows.

All in all nice Book

Has a very interesting Magic system and it is a interesting journey, but it's also the typical "heros journey"

Enlightning :-)

Very well read!
Good story. Could need a few more plot-twists, but this is the first of 5 books, so no doubt there will be some coming.. especially regarding the state of the story!

Überraschung

"The Black Prism" war meine Bücherüberraschung des letzten Jahres. Als Experiment gekauft war ich schnell ein Fan der Reihe und warte jetzt sehnsüchtig auf den 3. Teil nachdem ich zuletzt "The Blindig Knife" gehört habe.
Um die Zeit zu überbrücken habe ich mir die "Night Angel Trilogy" von Brent Weeks gekauft, musste aber leider feststellen das ich diese maximal durchschnittlich fand (3Sterne).
The Black Prism jedenfalls entführt einen in eine ganz andere Welt, auf die man sich in den ersten beiden Stunden einlassen muss. Danach wird es richtig spannend.
