A great start (spoilers... possibly),
This review is from: The Black Prism: Book 1 of Lightbringer (Lightbringer Trilogy) (Hardcover)
I had been eagerly awaiting Brent Weeks' new book since putting down Beyond the Shadows. I was desperate to find out what happened to Durzo, Kylar, et al. I was therefore, slightly disappointed to find out that Brent's new series was to be set in a completely different world.
I needn't have worried.
Admittedly, I found the start a little slow, but once the story got going I was very impressed. We are introduced to a new world, with complex characters & an even more complex political structure. Everyone, can in some way relate to Kip, the runt of litter, who overcomes personal tragedy. Then there is the Prism, Gavin, who has a deep secret, which would destroy his world, should it ever be found out. King Garadul, the young king who has more power than sense... and so it goes on...
We have here the foundation of another epic trilogy of books, where we already have some excellent characters, who, I for one, am very interested to find out what happens next.
Shame I have to wait for book 2 to be released...
