Description

New York Times bestseller
The Broken Eye continues the spectacular Lightbringer series from the New York Times bestselling author of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife.

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who can still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism--he can't use magic at all.

Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels, and an ascendant order of hidden assassins called The Broken Eye.

    This was originally supposed to be a trilogy and, it should have ended at book three but, Weeks saw $$$ and decided to drag this thing out. My biggest complaint about Weeks, to this point, has been the frustrating way in which he resolves complex story lines with deus ex machina mechanisms all too often. Well, in this book he definitely solved that problem by dragging story lines on into eternity and advancing the plot about an inch in the process. Lazy conclusions aside, his first two books were entertaining and worth the read. After this one, I'm not sure I care about the finish anymore.

    After seeing 'The Broken Eye' on the Amazon Best of 2014 list, and having not read any of Bremt Weeks books, I took a leap of faith and I started at the first book of the series. Man O' man can I truly say that I'm glad I did. The books aren't perfect- I suppose no author is- but the authors growth in book after book is apparent. I've read, in this, that many have found The Broken Eye as the weakest- or a let down/ cash cow. I humbly disagree. While this book doesn't have the persistent battle themes of the second book, or awesomeness of Gavin in book one- it does pivot the series to the series own namesake (aka Lightbringer); it expands Teias character tremendously and it (I believe) throws a feint at the reader (who's the primary nemesis?).... However, plot points are important- the authors mastery of prose hums with vibrancy here: Gavin's dream sequences; Kip in the forest (early); Kip in Big Jasper (late).... These are what making the book a lasting work: and one which has me looking forward to book 4. Very highly recommended to Jordan / Sanderson / Epic Fantasy fans.

    Absolutely brilliant. I still think about it from time to time, having finished it months ago. Something will happen in real life that will bring me back to the Cerulean Sea and the Chromeria, wondering how the lives of these people will progress in the next instalment.
  • Another great read

    Brent weeks does not disappoint. This book was equally amazing to everything else he has written. I can't even count the hours I've spent awake way past my bed time reading this series. Buy it!!

    This book was as good as the rest of this series. If you liked the other two you won't regret the purchase. It's a book you don't want to end. It's good and long so I felt it is worth the price
  • Great read!!
