Reviews
"Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off."--Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear
"Packed with all of the rich characterization, political intrigue, frenetic action, and clever color-based magic a fantasy lover could ask for, it may even be the best of the lot."--B&N Reads: Best of the Year on The Burning White
"Bestseller Weeks keeps the pot simmering with many secrets revealed and much verbal sparring... Weeks deftly moves the pieces around his chessboard, snapping them with assured feeling onto their new squares in preparation for a climactic confrontation."
--Publishers Weekly on The Blood Mirror
"The fifth and final book in the Lightbringer series, The Burning White is a wholly satisfying read, full of even more plot twists, sacrifice, equally bad choices, epic battles, and much more. This is absolutely one of those books you won't want to stop reading, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat until the last page. Every fantasy fan should read The Burning White as soon as possible."Powell's Books on The Burning White
"Brent Weeks has a style and immediacy of detail that pulls the reader relentlessly into his story. He doesn't allow you to look away."--Robin Hobb on The Black Prism
"The Lightbringer series is great fun. Nobody does breakneck pacing and amazingly executed plot twists like Brent Weeks."--Brian McClellan, author of Promise of Blood on The Black Prism
"His plot feels like an orchestrated chess match between genius grandmasters."--Publishers Weekly on The Broken Eye
"The Blinding Knife was even better than the The Black Prism (and that's saying something!)"--B&N.com on The Blinding Knife
"The Blinding Knife is a wonderful work of high fantasy with engaging characters facing the perfect antagonists, set in a creatively-wrought and increasingly chaotic world brimful of imaginative magic and interesting politics. Weeks holds fast to the traditions of his genre while adding a compelling new flavor."--The Ranting Dragon on The Blinding Knife
"One of the best epic fantasies I've ever read."--Staffer's Book Review on The Blinding Knife
"Weeks manages to ring new tunes on...old bells, letting a deep background slowly reveal its secrets and presenting his characters in a realistically flawed and human way."--Publishers Weekly on The Black Prism
"...A solid, entertaining yarn."--The Onion A.V. Club on The Black Prism
"Weeks has written an epic fantasy unlike any of its contemporaries. It is a truly visionary and original work, and has set the bar high for others in its subgenre."--graspingforthewind.com on The Black Prism
"One of the best Fantasy books of 2012!"--A Dribble of Ink on The Blinding Knife
