  1. healthy dose of ridiculousness

    I really appreciate this aspect of Weeks’ writing. Not every character is fraught with Epic’ness. but at the same time he doesn’t allow the whole tone of the book to turn into the absurd. Andross is a perfect example of keeping things on the non-humorous. There is NOTHING funny about that son of a monkey.

    Really glad this is staying strong for you.

    1. Duuuude, Andross is a monster! Everytime he appears, I can feel the tension chocking me up. Don’t know how Kip was even able to “survive” the dude’s aura. But yes, I love how Weeks writes his characters. From silliness to sarcasm to fearful, there’s really nothing he CAN’T write. Makes me even more excited for the rest of the series. 3 more to go.

  2. This is an author that has been on my radar for a while, although somewhat peripherally, but now you have piqued my curiosity to no end because this sounds like a delightfully complex world and the main character intrigues me very much. A soon as I complete my Joe Abercrombie Journey (i.e. finishing the First Law trilogy), I might set my sights on Brent Weeks… 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!!!!

    1. I can only highly recommend his Lightbringer series, although I’ve only read 2 out of 5 books for now. It would be a fantastic time to start it though, considering the 5th and final book comes out tomorrow! 😀 I would love to see your exquisite, insightful and thorough thoughts on it when you get the chance though! 😀 Thank you so much for READING! ❤

  3. Awesome review Lashaan, I haven’t read the first book but it’s going on my list! It is amazing that the second volume just seems to reinforce what was already there in the first one, I am very curious to try this story! Thanks for sharing 😊

  4. Wow, high praise indeed my friend! As you know, I’m not really invested in this kind of fantasy (my interest in magic kind of stops with Star Wars and the Force and I tend to be more compelled by the science fiction elements…probably why I’ve always favoured that other ‘Star’ (Trek) franchise) but would never exclude a story simply on those grounds. It’s good to hear that the author has built and developed strong set of characters which is more often than not the most important component.

    1. Hahaha I definitely understand you. It’s already A LOT of content to just follow both SW and ST, to be honest. Then again, I do love my fantasy stories, especially when the world is complex and the characters are compelling. In fact, this series is exactly how I imagine Green Lantern, if they ever had properly done his movies since the premise of the magic system is based on the colour spectrum and how they manipulate the colours they see to generate things.
