Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks' New York Times bestselling Night Angel trilogy.

"I got a bit of prophecy," the old assassin said. "Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you're here, I see they're all you. Durzo Blint."

Durzo Blint? Gaelan had never even heard the name.

Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He's also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he's worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he's become a hero, his very names passing into legend: Acaelus Thorne, Yric the Black, Hrothan Steelbender, Tal Drakkan, Rebus Nimble.

But when Gaelan must take a job hunting down the world's finest assassins for the beautiful courtesan-and-crimelord Gwinvere Kirena, what he finds may destroy everything he's ever believed in.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ali Bee | 2/14/2014

    " I've read maybe 10% of this book and it's already 76% raunchier than the entire first third of the Night Angel trilogy. We'll see how this goes... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Biggins | 2/11/2014

    " Short and to the point. I enjoyed the backstory this novella provided but felt it was a little underwhelming for some reason, not really sure why. Suggested if you read the Night Angel trilogy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Robert Placencia | 2/4/2014

    " Another great Night Angel book. Not as good as the series, but pretty damn good. What I'd really love to see is a book that takes place in the great battle we catch small hints about in every Night Angel book. I want to see the rise and fall of Jorsin, Ezra, and Acaleus. :) "
