About this ebook

Logan Gyre now holds the throne, but Kylar Stern has acquired a powerful new enemy, a goddess bent on the destruction of all that Kylar holds dear in the concluding volume of the Night Angel Trilogy by NYT bestselling author Brent Weeks.

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance -- a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom.

In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him.

Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends -- and perhaps his enemies -- he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Devour this blockbuster tale of assassination and magic by Brent Weeks which has delighted readers all over the world -- with over one million copies in print.

Even better than the first two books!!! FULL of action, while tying up and exploring loose ends from the first two books. A truly superlative end to an incredible masterpiece of a journey. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mixture of fantasy, adventure, magic and assassins! The trilogy beautifully blends corrupt politics, murder and magic better than anything I could have hoped for... Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

Seemed oddly paced and under-edited compared to the others. What happened to Solon? What was with that dragon stuff? What about the Chattel rebellion? Why did Lantano do a 180? Why did Momma K play such a small role (having previously been a major character)? Are the Sa'Kage done or what? Uh, what happened to Uly anyway? There was so much conveniently forgotten, it was like the last 100 pages were just pinched off in some formulaic fashion to get the series over with. A shame - it started so well.

Few authors are able to write an intelligent fantasy book that not only has excellent literary attributes, but is also entertaining while discussing a variety of social issues. Brent Weeks has. He has done it with the night angel trilogy as well as his Prism trilogy. He has a fine skill for telling visually powerful sequences while still developing the story and characters. His action and combat sequences are among the greatest that I have ever read, and he is greatly skilled at describing the minutiae of martial arts techniques in a way that even a layman to the methods of combat can visualize and understand. I applaud his skill, and look forward to what I hope and expect will be a long and prosperous career.
