Description

Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left - now he's got less than one. With 50,000 refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin's got problems on every side.

As he loses control of his magic, all magic is running wild, threatening to destroy the Seven Satrapies. The old gods are being reborn. Their army of color wights is unstoppable, and the only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole 16 years ago.

Commentaires

“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)
“Epic fantasy at its best . . . I was hooked in from the first page and couldn't put it down, even at the last. It is, quite frankly, superb.” ( Sci-Fi London)
“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)

Spectacular story, great listen.

The second novel in the Lightbringer trilogy, The Blinding Knife is a spectacular read and a great listen. Simon Vance does a great job with the narration, and Brent Weeks' writing just keeps getting better with every book he writes. This time Kip is in Black Guard training, Liv is working with the Colour Prince, Gavin/Dazen reveals his secret to Karris and Andross Guile starts his manipulations of Kip. Readers of Brandon Sanderson, Peter V. Brett and George R. R. Martin will love Brent Weeks.

The plot is so thicc😏

(minor spoilers) all the stories intertvine even more, and you can see an underlying chatulu-esk plotline brewing.

Schönes Hörbuch, schreitet langsam voran

Das erste Buch der Reihe hat mich in seinen Bann gezogen, und ich habe mich mit viel Vorfreude auf den zweiten Teil gestürzt.

Das Zuhören war sehr unterhaltsam und ich bin schon gespannt wie es weitergeht. Jedoch finde ich, ist die Geschichte nicht wirklich vorangeschritten. Es kam mir eher so vor als wären viele Nebenstorys, die jedoch interessant sind, vorangebracht worden. Das große Rätsel um das "Blinding Knife" bleibt mir weiterhin ein Geheimnis. Man erwartet, dass es in diesem Buch um diesen Dolch geht. Er ist für mich aber nur am Rande aufgetaucht und mir ist noch ganz und gar nicht klar, welche Rolle dieses Messer spielt!

Sich Gedanken darüber zu machen, in wie fern sich das Blinding Knife noch auswirken wird, ist dennoch ein schöner Zeitvertreib.
