So, I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to fantasy novels. I've been reading them(consuming them, really) for more than 22 years at this point, and I'm pretty quick to call out trash as trash. Long gone are my days of poorly written branded books about Drow, and if it isn't intelligently written with characters that make sense, I'm not particularly interested. To give you an idea of my tastes some of my favorites are the Otherland series, all the Farseer novels, and of course a Song of Ice and Fire. All that being said, I kind of looked at the Lightbringer books years ago, thought it looked like easy reading garbage, and wrote it off completely. Finally, in the last few months I was hard up enough for reading that I decided to read them anyway. I coudn't feel worse and more wrong about that initial assessment now. While they are all a bit on the faster reading side, they're written EXCELLENTLY, with a coherent, unique and original magic system that backs up a good story. I'm not going to get into the detail of the plotline, and to be honest I generally don't write reviews of books on here, but I wanted to write this on the chance someone else might see this who had been writing these books off or not giving them a chance- please do so, you'll be very happy you did.

(Disclaimer: I am putting this same review up on all of the Lightbringer books so far, as when I was trying to decide if I should give them a try I looked at reviews for each of them before buying the faster, and ultimately I'm attempting to sway someone who is basically my past self, here)

As a big fan of fantasy novels, I can be pretty picky. This series has everything I love about Fantasy, plus a few bonuses! While the beginning might feel a little slow, about halfway through the pace really picks up, and it's a race to the finish just to see what happens. I think my favorite part about this series is the magic system, which basically acts like an extra set of physics rules for certain people. If you like Brandon Sanderson books, you'll love this series! Also, the diverse cast of characters is WONDERFUL, with plenty of amazing women and other people of color, which is something that a lot of SF/F books are lacking. Fascinating magic, fascinating characters, fascinating political structure, and just a fascinating world altogether. These books are big, but are action-packed, and have a little something for everyone inside!

In my humble opinion, Brent Weeks is the MASTER of epic. He is better than any other author I know at creating larger-than-life heroes, who are charismatic as heck and still tremendously flawed and compelling people. He's also fantastic at coming up with fantasy worlds full of potential and then taking advantage of every little opportunity to exploit that potential.

I was looking forward to this book (a little fanatically, truth be told) ever since reading the first one last summer. I enjoyed every minute of reading it and couldn't stop thinking about it while I was away from it.

So why not five stars?

Much as I enjoyed this outing, I was also increasingly frustrated by it. For all that there's all kinds of *stuff* happening on ever page, not much that's plot-worthy actually *happens.* The characters do big and impressive things - sometimes shockingly awful things - and yet there are never any consequences and sometimes not even reactions from the other characters. I almost feel like, with a few exceptions, this entire book could have been skipped on the way to what (I trust) is the real meat of the plot and action in the next book.

Oh, and Kip. This is as much personal druthers as anything, but I did grow weary of Kip's POV. Aside from the fact that Gavin is always going to be more interesting, Kip's constant self-pity and self-deprecation grows tedious. I won't be at all sorry when he grows a backbone and *realizes* he's grown a backbone.

None of which isn't to say I still don't love Brent Weeks. He remains da bomb.

In book 2 I am starting to get a grip on the color magic. It's a bit annoying having some dialog interrupted with paragraphs of the speaker's thoughts. I had to go back several times to pick back up the conversation. Eventually the story picked up a lot of speed. Lots of twists and turns. Lots of action. Crazy battles. Fantastic friendships and love stories. Loved the ending of this book. A lot is revealed. It is done in such a way that you are anxiously grabbing for book 3. Kip is growing up quick and the last revelation is an eye opener; even as he is blindfolded.
