    Got in the Kip mood, so I'm reading Book 2 again this week before Book 3 gets here.

    I finally got my hands on book 2...I'll read it as soon as I've finished the Outlander series. I love Brent Weeks in general, though so I'm very confident it'll be good.

    Agreed.

    Night Angel was good, but I'm still not sure exactly what happened and how the magic worked.

    Lightbringer is so much more accessible and far more enjoyable and just as exciting.


    I should finish my re-read of book 2 and get stuck into book 3 tomorrow :)

    Indeed, Weeks is really knocking the Lightbringer ones out of the park.

    I had my 75 year old mother just finish book 3 and she ate it up.

    Arise! Arise, I say!


    Book four was the best one yet, though the first few chapters were choppy.

    Halfway through and enjoying it but not finding it as gripping as the last one.

    Blood Mirror was great...... a few surprise twists in there.

    but suffers for being "half a book" I think it's going to be more enjoyable when put together with the next one

    I love these books. I found Black Prism on graphic audio by accident. Which started both my love for graphic audio books (full cast voice acting, sound effects, music ect.)

    Now I am afraid I am terribly spoiled and I dont want to mess up the 4th book for myself by trying to read it normally. So I have a little longer to wait until graphic audio is finished with the production of the 4th book. I messaged them awhile back and they said spring so yay.

    I'm listening to The Blinding Knife on audiobook right now, makes the commutes much more bearable. This series is so so good! It helps to have a great narrator but yeah, I'm enjoying them so much. Really interested in where Teia's storyline will go, and the Lightbringer mention was tantalising.

    Who's storylines is everyone most interested to learn more about in book 5? We had some interesting twists in 4.

    I think I must go and read Blood Mirror again, because I don't have an answer to that jumping to mind.

    Which means I don't know the book well enough.
