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?

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.

Hate waiting.

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

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?

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.

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.

Brent Weeks was born and raised in Montana. 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
