For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art---and he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious, something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums and learned to judge people quickly---and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics---and cultivate a flair for death. Download and start listening now!

    " The Way of Shadows is the second book that I have read by Weeks, and I enjoyed it as much as The Black Prism. Weeks creates an amazing cast of characters that capture the readers attention from the very beginning and that interests just continues to build as the reader learns more about them. Azoth is a great choice of hero in that he is a guild rat barely making it living on the streets but his heart and true sense of self shows in his compassion for his two friends, Jarl and Doll Girl. It is because of his love for them and his own sense of guilt for not being able to save them as well as his need to survive that he apprentices himself to Durzo Blint. The journey that Azoth takes to become Kylar is really the heart of Week's story. Blint is an interesting hero/anti-hero in that he is Azoth/Kylar's "father"/mentor/friend/enemy/ally and serves as a great secondary lead. The journey he takes in the book is just as powerful as Azoth/Kylar's and is also a focal point of the story. Weeks also adds some great secondary characters in Jarl, Doll Girl, Logan, and Momma K that only add to the overall story. Weeks does an amazing job with his world building something I also really enjoyed with The Black Prism. Weeks shows us several sides to that world with the guild rats, the royalty, and the nobles as well as the threat of the Khalidorans intent on invasion. Overall this was an amazing read, and I am already looking forward to the next book in the trilogy. I would definitely recommend The Way of Shadows if you enjoy action, adventure, drama, romance, and intriguing twists and turns mixed in with your fantasy. "

    " Strong, fun fantasy. Pretty conventional hero (orphan who becomes a tool of prophecy), but a witty lead. Female roles are not the best, and are mostly girly-girls. "

    " Oh my God, that was epic! A perfect blend of a believable kingdom in squalor and beautifully crafted magic and mystery. Add some humor, sarcasm, passion love and death (going hand in hand), and a little unnecessary profanities (however, they were very well placed and didn't seem so bad in that setting) and you have an altogether good read. I loved it. School and work has been keeping me from reading as much as I would have liked, and I would have liked to stay up for two days straight, wired on caffeine, and read until either A) my eyes dried up and fell out or B) I finished this wonderful read. I have to get to the next few books, and soon. "

    " This reminds me of Game of Thrones but on a smaller scale. Plenty of intrigue, suffering, people dying, etc. Has a Greek tragedy feel to it, as no one seems to ever quite get what they're looking for in the end, although there's certainly some happy outcomes in the short term for the characters. Excellent book! "
