5.0 out of 5 stars Shades of grey., 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blinding Knife: Book 2 of Lightbringer (Kindle Edition)
This is adult fantasy with compelling characters and an occasionally shocking disregard for the conventions (and limitations ) of traditional fantasy. The characters are by far some of the most realistic and complex in fantasy. The lines between hero and villain is deliberately blurred. For a story about colors its interestign to see people depicted in shades of grey instead of black and white.

Other amusing points are the inclusion of magical blend between tatot and playing cards - which the author in the closing acknowledges is inspired by magic the gathering. Luckily this product placement doesnt take over the story.

Brent weeks is well on his way to becoming one of the powerhouses of modern fantasy and in this book (and series) challenging Brandon Sanderson for the crown of epic fantasy world builder.
