From gutter rat to master wetboy (a.k.a. Assassin- but better)and then beyond even that, these three books follow the life of Azoth/Kylar Stern from the age of about 10 as he grows up under the apprenticeship of Durzo Blint, the best wetboy Cenaria (their country) has ever seen. He is trained, taught that love is a poison best left untouched, and then unleashed on the world. where he somehow stumbles into the role of being one of the most important people in existence! But unfortunately, Kylar can't seem to shake his love for Doll Girl/Elene who he loved even as a child, he keeps screwing up and dying (you'll understand how that's possible when you read the books), and when he tries to give up the 'way of shadows' (otherwise known as orchestrating fate from the shadows without any recognition) he keeps getting pulled back despite how he fights it tooth and nail. This is a story of destiny, prophecies, and figures larger than life. Who ever thought a guild rat could be the champion of kings? Kylar will show you who! These stories are full of action, moral ambiguity, and hero's the likes of which every sci-fi addict craves to see! I'd recommend these books to anyone who doesn't mind gore or the dark twisted side of life, and I'd recommend them to anyone who loves to be on the edge of their seat for a few days while you read them one after the other until you pass out, because you have to sleep sometime after all! I'll say this for Brent Weeks, I've read a LOT of books in my years, and these books are the best one's I've EVER read. No matter how many times the narrator changed (from Kylar, to Elene, to Durzo, to Momma K and more.) it was seamless and important. Not one part did I skip, like we sometimes want to do when the other characters are boring or not that important and are allowed to be narrators. These books are brilliantly written. I'd say that if you're a fan of R.A. Salvatore then this series is right up your alley, but I think they're even better. I know, I know, I'm a blasphemous nerd. but read the series and you won't be able to help but think the same thing. Good Reading!!

This short series is a masterpiece. Best new author to come along in years. If you like dark fantasy, I can't recommend one more with its antihero protagonists who are mystical assassins. It joins A Song of Ice and Fire and the Wheel of Time series that I will keep forever to read, reread and pass along to future enthusiasts. I only wish there were a hardcover version for better protection as I will keep this forever.

I felt for the hardship of the characters in a world seeming both post apocalyptic and ancient. Definitely worth my time.

The first of the series was really great, compelling and thrilling. The second one wasn't as good, but had a little more stakes considering our hero has won his prize. The second half of the second book, however, and the last in the trilogy, however, bordered more on vulgar and distasteful. The characters have very little redeeming qualities and it just becomes extremely bizarre. What had started as a good premise turned into a disappointing ending.

Quite possible the best series of fantasy books I've ever read. Other than the occasional spelling error, I wouldn't edit the ocntents of this book in s single way. Fantasy has become too pure these days; all of the heroes are incorruptible and all of the villains are absolutely evil. This book does not have that aspect. I found myself feeling sorry for the antagonists and hating some of the actions of the protagonist. It also doesn't have the childish quality that some fantasy seems to have. Weeks does not pull any punches when it comes to violent or sexual scenes, adding a greater sense of realism to the book. I literally could not put the book down. I read the entire series from start to finish at age 13, understanding some of it and questioning other parts, but one thing was for sure: I enjoyed it. I re-read the books recently, and the feeling of awe has been the same. I recommend these books to anyone (interested in primarily fantasy or not), because they are gripping, emotional, and powerful books to read. My compliments to the author.

The Dark Angel trilogy is different, exceptionally well authored, as well as catches your concentration. I came to be addicted after looking at the very first book, therefore I went and purchased the subsequent two the afternoon I completed the first. One week after finishing the books, I start reading them all over again. It is simply exceptional, easily readable, and the heroes, although with a fantasy concept, are credible as well as relatable. The story is simply by no means foreseeable and definately will make you seeking more.

I looked at these books several times before I picked them up and read them. I can't believe I waited. I burned through the whole trilogy in no time. They are packed with action the whole way through and the story really sucks you in. The plot twists enough to keep you constantly suprised. Brent Weeks is the standard I now compare all new authors to.
