The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Sadly this is one of those epic fantasy novels that you really can’t pick up on its own, you do have to have read the first two books, The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife, before you can begin to understand this. So that done, you can now roll on as chapters jump from person to person in what is now the third in the Lightbringer series. Teia is in training with the Blackguards, Marta is hunted by many, and Kip and Zymun are making their way to Chromeria.

If you like Brent Weeks you might also like to read books by Joe Abercrombie, Brandon Sanderson and Robin Hobb.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who might still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism - he can't use magic at all. Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels, and an ascendant order of hidden assassins called The Broken Eye. With over two million books in print, Brent Weeks has become one of the fastest selling new fantasy authors of all time.

About the Author

Brent Weeks studied at Hillsdale College, before brief stints walking the earth like Caine from Kung Fu, also tending bar and corrupting the youth (not at the same time). He started writing on napkins and, eventually, someone paid him for it. Brent doesn't own cats or wear a ponytail.
