Book Description

4 Dec 2008 Night Angel (Book 3)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of an epic fantasy trilogy. 27 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
What can I really say about this last trilogy that I haven't already said about the previous two novels? Honestly not much! These books are just that good, for a first time author Weeks has created a masterful debut Fantasy series. As with the previous two novels this book is written brilliantly with Great in depth characterization and a beautifully set back drop.

The story has progressed a great deal from the second novel, there is a new Queen in Cenaria, alas for her nation she proves to be a corrupt incompetent who only cares for her own power. The true King Logan is off hunting the last of the God Kings armies while his friend Kyler tries to warn him that he is marching into an ambush that could destroy him and any hope for the future of Cenaria. As for Kyler he will learn the bitter truth of his immortality he must also figure out a way to save a nation and restore a King to his throne, along the way he will meet old friends and older enemies.

All in all I can honestly say this is one of the best debut Fantasy trilogies i've ever read, if you're stuck for something to read then this will definitely make you sit up and think. Brilliant trilogy!

I hope this review was of some help to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellant! 21 April 2009
Format:Paperback
I saw a review for this book on Amazon so bought all three. Glad I did. Very refreshing to read an author who doesn't stick to the safe passages of other authors but is willing to write a story that includes taboo subjuects and proper swearing as you would expect from the class of characters. Literally couldn't put the books down and had all three finished in a mateer of four days. Blown away! The only disappontment I had was that there was no more at the end of book 3. Told my brother how good they were so I showed them and when I made him a drink he stole them. Now I am thinking of asking a wetboy to do me a favour! Fast pasced, excellantly written, truly enjoyable. Out of all my books in my collection with over 50 authors Brent Weeks eased into my top ten favourites with this trilogy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent ending to a very good trilogy. 17 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
I liked the cover and the blurb sounded interesting so I picked the first book of this series up in a bookshop a few weeks ago. It was good but nothing out of the ordinary, however, I enjoyed it enough that I did want to read more to find out what happened to all the characters and how it would all work out. I picked up books two and three at the weekend and I was so engrosed in the story that I ended up reading long long into the night and have been half asleep at work for the last two days. The glimmer of promise shown in the first novel has developed into competent and very enjoyable fantasy writing.

Without giving away too much of the plot and spoiling the story Book 1 - The Way of Shadows (Night Angel Trilogy) sets the scene and introduces the stories of Azoth, a boy from the underbelly of society who ends up training as apprentice to Durzo Blint a wetboy (magical assassin extrordinaire), Logan Gyre the son of a Duke and several other more minor characters who become more major characters as the story progresses. When this book ends Azoth has become Kylar Stern, has killed Durzo Blint and has gained mastery of a magic which means that death is only another injury to be recovered from. Logan has become King, but has lost his kingdom and is thought to be dead along with his wife Janine, and the Khalidoran enemy has captured Cenaria.

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner 13 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback
Enjoyed the first book in this series, found the second book was more about setting the scene for the third book, but still an enjoyable read...if slightly darker than the first book.
But wow, this the third book, was spectacular, I couldn't put it down, a real page turner...though this book was released one month after the second book, I very much doubt it is the work of one month, it is beautifully written, drawing all the plots and characters previously introduced into a clever and well thought out ending.
It is rare to see the progression of all the smaller plots and characters wound up so cleverly into the main plot...Well done the author:)

By Sara
Format:Paperback
This is the last instalment of the Night Angel Trilogy, and the culmination of all the small stories coming together. I admired the way that Weeks brought it all together, but the ending left me with the distinct feeling that... theres another series in the pipeline.. I hope so, as there still seems to be story-lines opened that weren't concluded.. such as... the twins of Logan and the Princess.. what will be the outcome of Kylar and Vi. I'm waiting. The trilogy is good all on its own, but I'd still like to see what is coming next.

I found some of the story a little too emotional, but that's just me. a good stroy all round. Read the other 2 parts though, or you will definitely feel as though you missed something.
