    Paragon

    Based on a ninja/assassin's aspect of life, for once in my life time I have finally encountered a trilogy that rivals J.R.R Tolkien's "the lord of the rings." Countless times I was astroprojected into the characters of the story, predominately Kyler and Durzo. The emotional oscillation with Elene and Vi was impeccable. Other than the fact that I couldn't be provided -even at the end when it was supposed to- the official unification of Kyler and Vi, the plot throughout the whole trilogy was brilliant. I just don't feel as though the gripping of the hands at the very end was enough. I wanted Kyler and Vi together sooner, or at least confirmation of their unity 'laughs' but all together. Fantastic story

    Brilliant, Period.

    As a fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and a die- hard devotee of C.S. Lewis and "The Chronicles of Narnia", I can honestly say that the Night Angel Trilogy touched and inspired me in a way that I haven't known since Lewis. It is an awesome and satisfying finale to a superbly written story. When I finished "Beyond the Shadows" I sat silently for some time in order to digest and recover. It was incredibly unique, groundbreaking and that heart-stopping. I cannot express through words how highly I regard this piece of work. Thanks Brent.

    Truly Inspiring

    This final Conclussion to the Night Angel Trilogy is by far one of the most griping and emotional endings to a series i have ever read. It is definetly the greatest piece of literature ive read in a long time, and i strongly believe you'll feel the same way. Even though the ending is bitter-sweet, this novel will definetly bring about the conclussion we all hope for in a trilogy.

    Action Packed Finale

    The intricate plot is the main character of the final book. All the characters take a backseat except for, perhaps, Dorian who finally finds himself and is then forced to watch as survival and necessity chip away first at his ideals and then at all of his hopes and desires. The female characters seem flat, even the female assassin, who had started off with so much promise. Myriad events and ancient secrets culminate to reveal the Godkings' religious origins. The plot-driven characters, however, are left somewhat hollow, while the plot ends satisfyingly well. For those who read the first two of the series, this is a must read. The action is well worth your time.

    Great series!

    I enjoyed the series. The final book was not as good as the first two. At the end I felt like the author was reaching for a ending and that he really was ready to move on.

    Great story but....

    I love the fact that Brent has the creative ability to create his own world and share it with his readers and I wouldn't want to take that away from him. I truly enjoyed the stories.

    My major critique is with his use of frivolous swearing - seriously, Brent you're a writer... use your vocabulary! It doesn't add anything to the story; doesn't make it more exciting. It's just distracting!

    Too many F*Bombs again

    Honestly, as an adult, I do hear the f*word, even in regular conversation with my colleagues. This book has interesting characters, and some got raped, one or two are gay. But, really do we need to see the f*word so often?

    If this doesn't bother you, then the you'll probably enjoy it. The characters are well developed, and the pace of the action quite good. It was easy enough to get engrossed in the multiple story-lines.

    I won't write any spoilers here, but there were a couple if unexpected twists, and while the good guys took out the bad guys, there was still a melancholy ending.

    Notable Trilogy Finale

    This multilayered conclusion is a must read ending for anyone who started this series. The story lines intricately twist and intertwine. The pace is fast and gradually escalates until reaching the decisive battle. The action ranges from individual contests/killings to full scale war. The plot is comprehensive and complex; but, that complexity deprives the story of a recognizable protagonist and blunts the pathos and intimacy seen in the earlier books. Characters seem to serve the plot, rather than the plot unfolding around the characters. With the exception of the new Godking Wanhope, (aka Dorian), the primary characters are flattened and somewhat stereotyped. Even Kylar and Durzo lose individuality. Logan becomes rigid, hypocritical, unsympathetic and remote. Only Dorian's character is expanded, and his spiral from unavoidable violence into remorseless practicality culminating in unrepentant brutality is fascinating. I'm particularly disappointed that the few primary female characters are marginalized and/or made overly subservient and self-sacrificing.

    Amazing.

    I have spent the past 3 weeks reading the series over and over. I limited my self to little sleep and nourishment to just keep reading. The author has put into words what can only be called an epic tale worthy of being called near perfect. In all my years i have never come accross another series quite as gripping as this one.
    It is an utterly amazing trilogy. I will sometimes spend hours of my off time thinking this series over.

    I am amazed every time i read any of these 3 books.

    Thank you, for writimg this :p
