Night Angel: The Complete Trilogy (Omnibus) by Brent Weeks
Requirements: ePUB Reader | 5.4 Mb
Overview: Brent Weeks was born and raised in Montana. After getting his paper keys from Hillsdale College, Brent had brief stints walking the earth like Caine from Kung Fu, tending bar, and corrupting the youth. (Not at the same time.) He started writing on bar napkins, then on lesson plans, then full time. Eventually, someone paid him for it. Brent lives in Oregon with his wife, Kristi. He doesn’t own cats or wear a ponytail.
01. The Way of Shadows (2008): For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art – and he is the city’s most accomplished artist.
For Kylar Stern, just surviving is a struggle. As a guild rat, he’s learned to judge people quickly – and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint. But to be accepted, he must turn his back on everything he has ever known.
02. Shadow’s Edge (2008): Kylar Stern has rejected the assassin’s life. The Godking’s successful coup has left Kylar’s master, Durzo, and his best friend, Logan, dead. He is starting over: new city, new friends, and new profession.
But when he learns that Logan might actually be alive and in hiding, Kylar is faced with an agonizing choice: will he give up the way of shadows forever and live in peace with his new family, or will he risk everything by taking on the ultimate hit?
03. Beyond the Shadows (2008): 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.
“Weeks creates a rich blend of politics, culture, and character in the Night Angel Trilogy… then throws in magic-using assassins. Brent Weeks is so good it’s starting to tick me off.” —Peter V. Brett, author of The Desert Spear
