    So I just finished The Blinding Knife, and man was it good, I think I enjoyed it even more than The Black Prism.


    Awesome book, and so easy to read, I was done with it in a flash. as I couldn't stop reading.


    Anyone else picked it up yet?

    Noone is reading these books?

    I'm rather surprised as they are some of the better fantasy going around at the moment in my opinion.

    I have them on my Kindle.... I was going to start them, but the another certain book came along that took precedence. ;)
    Maybe I'll take a mini break from my re-read and read them.

    Be interested to see what you all think of them, I can't recommend them highly enough.


    I just gave the first one to my 73 year old mother

    :p

    I'm surprised this series isn't more popular, I've reread 1 and 2 a couple of times and really enjoyed them

    This thread popping up has just reminded me how much I enjoyed these. Book 3 is out in the next year or so I think

    All these authors need to write faster.

    Book 3 is probably my most hotly anticipated book for the next year or so.

    I haven't read the Lightbringer series, but I'm listening to the first book of his Night Angel trilogy on audiobook. It's not bad, but not really anything special either. The beginning was really slow, but it's starting to pick up so I have hopes that the end will be good

    Night Angel is good, and it does pick up. Overall I enjoyed them quite a bit.

    Although it was a little confusing and not totally clear in a lot of things.


    Lightbringer is orders of magnitude better I think, but Night Angel is no slouch either.

    Book 3 came out sooner than I was expecting, ordered it yesterday.

    Can't wait until it arrives!
