Mr. Weeks is one of the best fantasy writers alive and if the Night Angel Trilogy's ending is anything to go by the ending isn't going to be anything we expect. And that was only a trilogy, an excellent trilogy, my favorite but a relatively small work. Honestly I'm just going to enjoy the ride and not second guess it. It's nice to read an author that gets his story off the normal railings but not in the cliché ways.(less)
Roger Brent Weeks just posted on Facebook that it's going to be released in Fall 2019.

Bless the souls of those that are glaring at this '5th' book of the, supposedly, 'trilogy', including me...But please let this be the last. T^T I want to know how it ends (Although I'd be sad too since it's gonna end. Such a bittersweet romance.)

Should have been part of book #4. Author seems to be padding his book count.
