Description

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.

Author Bio

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.

Review Quotes

Places Brent Weeks on comfortable footing beside contemporaries like Brandon Sanderson and Joe Abercrombie, if not a step above - A DRIBBLE OF INK on THE BLINDING KNIFE

An exuberant epic fantasy that I could read thousands of pages of and still want more - Fantasy Book Critic

Weeks has truly cemented his place among the great epic fantasy writers of our time - British Fantasy Society

Great action, great characters and lots of politics and manipulations to keep the reader on their toes to the very last pages. Superb reading - BOOKBAG on THE BLINDING KNIFE
