    Honestly how am I supposed to wait a whole year for this book to come out! I just spent all of this past year waiting for Blinding Knife to come out! You know Brent weeks has to be a great author for everyone to be desperate to get his books.

    Yep... I might have to re-read the previous two books to try to remember what happened on them. I should have waited for the series to finish first but Nooooo I could not help reading more of Brent Weeks' books after the Night Angel series

    Oddly, the best thing about Brent Weeks' books is simultaneously the worst thing about them: they're impossible to put down. And when you come up for air after the last page and the rush wears off there is only one thought - waiting ANOTHER year till the next one? How will I stand it???

    How can people rate a book that has yet to be written?

    had the time only for maybe 100 pages and it is just vintage Brent Weeks so far; almost impossible to put down (only literally dropping it when my eyes unwittingly closed from tiredness at 1am made me stop reading) so I need to have a good time chunk to read it end to end

    follows Gavin, Kip, Teia and somewhat less Karis for now

    finished the novel and now i am rereading it as usually the first read became quite a breathless one from some point on, where I just turned the pages to see what happens...more

    So hopefully the wait won't be too long for the Blood Mirror, but I did here this will be a four book deal rather than the normal trilogy. Now have to wait even long er to find out what will happen to Gavin/Dazen, Karis and Kip. We hates waiting.

    How are people rating the book? It doesn't come out for another year, I get that it will most likely be very good because Brent Weeks is a great author but wouldn't it be better to reserve judgement until you've actually read it?

    Got the book two weeks early and devoured it.

    The Night Angel Trilogy had me convinced that Brent Weeks could do no wrong, yet I remember I wasn't sold after reading the Black Prism all those years ago. Fortunately, the Lightbringer series got its hooks in me with the Blinding Knife. But that was two years ago and I had forgotten some of the smaller plot details of the series, but the memories quickly came flooding back as I swept through chapter after chapter of the Broken Eye. And oh boy, was...more

    AHHHHHH! This book was worth the wait! It answered so many questions from the previous book, and then went ahead and left me with a whole bunch more! Now I have to wait again =[. If you are a fantasy fan and you haven't read anything by Brent Weeks, what have you been doing? The Lightbringer series has everything from the light hearted warm moments, to the darkest despair moments and everything in between. The characters are wonderful and deep. They grow throughout the series, and you love them...more

    Assistant Peter Recommends: The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks

    Hello there! Brandon Sanderson's assistant Peter here. This is the start of a sporadic feature on Brandon's blog where I recommend something to you. (This was originally posted on Brandon's blog, but I'm also posting it here on GoodReads.) But don't worry, this probably won't happen very often. I am also going to recommend something else to you next week, but then who knows when the next time might be? Not I. Since you never can tell when...more

    I got this book early. I got this book about two weeks early. I was ecstatic. I was worse than a kid in a candy store. I was Gollum. It was my precious. I was just sitting around stroking the book all night with the book. I didn't start to read it until I got a day off. I finished it in two days. It was wonderful.

    The book took a little longer to start than I would have liked, it was more setup than action. Once I got into the politics of the book I enjoyed the backstory of the characters more t...more

    I was sent an uncorrected proof printing of this book. No spoilers follow.

    If you enjoyed the previous two volumes Brent won't let you down in this one. Highly recommend this to all his fans. :)



    He had a few lines of dialog that really stood out, one example: "Even the forgiven must pay penance."

    I went to amazon.com to pre-order this book and found out I can't do that. Yes, I know I haven't read this yet. I wanted to make a note here about publication since I came too goodreads hoping for this publication information but didn't see it.

    I guess the publisher is caught up in amazon contract negotiation and so this isn't available right now. So, had to go to another site to order it. Hopefully things will be ironed out with amazon by the time this is released in August.

    In the mean time, I...more

    The first chapters read beautifully, and I can't wait for the book to be published. I look forward to reading the next installment to this series of political intrigue, fast paced action, and cruel twists of fate.

    Another excellent addition to the series.
    Plenty of revelations and a breakneck pace from the very beginning. We get to explore a lot of Gavin's background, and closure for many questions are provided in this volume as well.

    One minor flaw, in my opinion, was that we didn't get enough time with the Colour prince. A lot of details which could be important were only briefly mentioned and a bit of Andross time could've been cut IMO.

    I felt like the book was setting up a lot of things, and got a bit c...more

    The first fifty pages have been released as a preview, and I am now really excited for this to come out. I've reread the first two a few times now, and caught a lot of details that I hope get explained in this one. Knowing Weeks, I'll end up with a whole new set of mysteries and entirely unexpected revelations instead. Can't wait!

    BAH! Another series I began, only to find out that it hasn't been completed. I should have checked first, so it's my own fault. Still, it's something to look forward to.

    About Brent Weeks

After getting his paper keys from Hillsdale College, Brent had brief stints walking the earth like Caine from Kung Fu, tending bar, and corrupting the youth. (Not at the same time.) He started writing on bar napkins, then on lesson plans, then full time. Eventually, someone paid him for it. Brent lives in Oregon with his wife, Kristi. He doesn’t own cats...more
