Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance—a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom.

In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him.

Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends—and perhaps his enemies—he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Devour this blockbuster tale of assassination and magic by Brent Weeks which has delighted readers all over the world—with over one million copies in print.

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

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.

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.

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.

I have read and reread the trilogy. From Durzo to Roth, from Logan to The Night Angel... you never know what side you were playing or which concequenses were the most severe... loved every minute of it.

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.

Really good end to a very engaging trilogy.

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.

A great author - I first read this series almost 8 years ago when Brent Weeks was unknown. I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you look this series - you MUST read the Lightbringer Series. I'm hooked. Can't wait to see what else Brent Weeks has in store for the future.

I flew through the entire trilogy in a week. I could not put it down. The characters were compelling and the pace kept me reading. I probably should have been studying for the CPA exam, but it was worth it.

Only writing review for this last book in series, though all were great. Series definitely got better as it went which is saying something. It's like Brent finally made peace with himself that he needed to be no-holds-barred gritty, and the result was an absolute success. Can't wait for the new Words of Radiance!
