This was my first Brent Weeks book and I knew very little about it so I went in blind but . . . wow it was amazing! To quote the book ‘it was the kind of beauty that made you shit your pants.’
The character development for 3 of the main characters was immense, Gavin’s development as prism, Kip coming into who he was and Liv developing a strong sense of self.
The magic at the start was hard to grasp as different colours can do different things but as it described the physics of it and how each colour worked I felt it was a really unique magic system that really enhanced the book.
The plot at the start seemed like a simple first book of an epic fantasy series plot but as the book went on it became so intricate and interwoven that I only stopped reading when I had to sleep. The main plot twists in it I really did not see coming but when the twists occur they definitely help you get an insight into the characters’ past that you previously didn’t have.
I am really looking forward to reading the second book and definitely recommend this book for anyone that needs a refreshing epic fantasy.
