Publisher Description

Gavin's powers are fading and his end draws near as war rages across the satrapies in the second novel of the NYT bestselling Lightbringer series by Brent Week. Gavin Guile is dying. He'd thought he had five years left -- now he has less than one. With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiance who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago. If you loved the action and adventure of the Night Angel trilogy, you will devour this incredible epic fantasy series by Brent Weeks.

    " Amazing. another great book by brent weeks. In a time when I had lost interest in books this one brought me straight back in. "

    " It was really hard to book this book down. Now I find myself with a nice series of cliff hangers that will be nagging at me until the next book resolves them. It a fun ride all the way through. "

    " Better than the first volume, with more plot-twists and denser storyline, and the characters, while still a bit shallow, are better drawn-out. A few stumbles in the plot - won't spoil it, but there is one bit that feels as if the author simply couldn't figure out where he was going and so cut that particular thread out of the weave of the story, and it's just clumsy enough to leave you scratching your head and wondering if you missed something. Still a fun book, and I will get the third volume whenever it comes out. "

    " Wow, if the first one wasn't as suspenseful, this one sure as hell made up for it. Definitely a must read for those who liked the Night Angel Trilogy... "

    " The first book in this series was great and this one did not disappoint either. The only thing I'm upset about is that I probably have to wait a year for the next book. "

    " Outstanding!! Weeks is maturing as a writer and this series is more developed than the Night Angel (which I loved). I gave it 4 stars as I reserve 5 stars for life changing books (e.g. Atlas Shrugged, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm). I'm so looking forward to book 3!! "

    " Enjoyed ! Ended on a good cliff hanger. Learned a lot about the nature of magic/physics in this world. Had some suppositions that turned out to be correct. Looking forward to the next book. "

    " Compelling read at the start but began to taper off about half-way through. I really disliked the ending, but I will read the third book in hopes that it repairs the story. "

    " Wow. This was an awesome second book. Well worth the wait. I really like the way the series is developing. I won't give away too much here in my review. It took me a week to read because it was a lengthy book, but I felt like it was an experience that kept on delivering! "
