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.
