I received this book as part of Goodreads Giveaway and super excited to be reading the next chapter in The Lightbringer Series. I finished reading this book today and my mind was blown by the ending in so many ways that it makes me hungry for the next installment. Here are my thoughts: It's been four months since the events in Garriston and beginnings of another war like False Prism War. Gavin Guile, The Prism, is hiding terrible secrets from everyone about himself along with the fact that he's lost the ability to draft Blue. The Seven Satrapies are so busy fighting each other that they ignore Gavin's warnings until it's too late to do anything about it period. Andross Guile, The Color Red on The Spectrum, is doing his damnest to deny Kip and Gavin whatever they want just because he can. He challenges Kip to a game of Nine Kings for such things as lessons, personal needs, and other little things like Teia becoming his room slave. Kip is determined to beat his grandfather no matter what and eventually he does. Gavin wants Kip to become a Blackguard for his own personal reasons. Kip and Teia are partners in The Blackguard training fighting to become one of the fourteen trained. Both Kip and Teia face fierce opposition despite the fact that Teia is really good enough to be a Blackguard. Karris Whiteoak, Watch Commander in the Blackguard, knows Gavin's secret yet has one of her own. She knows the true identity of the Color Prince~Koios Whiteoak, her older brother. Karris tries to say angry with Gavin for keeping secrets from her. Karris sees that Kip is protected by Samite. The Color Prince wants to see if Liv Danavis is really going to be loyal to him and his cause despite the lies of Chromeria. Liv learns that not everything taught in Chromeria is true. The Color Prince offers Liv something that she wouldn't get in the Chromeria~a true place of belonging. The Color Prince pairs Liv up with Zyum, a young and reckless drafter, as test for both of them. The Color Prince wants to destroy Gavin Guile and the Seven Satrapies all he needs is followers. Meanwhile the refugees of Garriston land on Seers Island much to the dismay of Third Eye. Third Eye gives insight to both Karris and Gavin about what to do next. Gavin names Kip, his son, despite the objections of Andross Guile. The Spectrum and The White fear to name Gavin promachos despite all evidence that it's very much needed. The real Gavin Guile is still imprisoned in color cells and driven mad by his existence there. Dazen as Gavin tells him about life outside of his prison but doesn't understand the depth of hatred Gavin has for Dazen. Kip learns a secret that could destroy everyone he cares about. What is Andross Guile's end game? What secrets does Kip hold? Will Kip and Teia become Blackguard? Will Gavin tell Karris the whole truth? Will Karris accept the truth? Where does Liv stand? What use does the Color Prince have for Liv an Zyum? Will Dazen free Gavin? Your answers await you in The Blinding Knife.

Pure awesomeness. I never thought anything could come close the Night Angel series. Lightbringer is right up there. Can't wait for the next installment.

This book is amazing. Quite honestly, Brent Weeks is one of my favorite authors in a long time. A friend recommended that I were to read the Night Angel Trilogy and I never stopped reading his work after that. This trilogy he is writing now is quite fantastic and keeps you hooked. The right mix of everything and I am about 2/3rds of the way through this book. It's astounding and I am about to read more. Kip, Teia, Cruxer, Gavin, Dazen, Andross, Karris, Ironfist, the White, The Black. All of these words have meanings to those who read the book. If you haven't read the Black Prism, read it now. You won't regret it and you will never regret reading my current book obsession, this book, The Blinding Knife.

I must say, Brent Weeks didn't skimp on books 2 or 3. They were great, and I certainly didn't see the twist ending in book 3 coming. Man! And I certainly appreciate the correction of the passive voice that was so evident in book 1. If you are a fan of magical fantasy worlds like Robin Hobb's work or George R.R. Martin, take a look at Brent Weeks's Lightbringer series. It's well worth it. Five stars across the board!

A fantastic story, great imagination, wonderful story line; a little long winded in some spots.
