Anasoma, jewel of the Mahruse Empire, has fallen. As Caldan and his companions flee the city, horrors from the time of the Shattering begin to close in. With Miranda's mind broken by forbidden sorcery, Caldan is forced to disobey the most sacrosanct laws of the Protectors if he is to have any chance of healing her. But when one of the emperor's warlocks arrives to take control of him, he begins to suspect his burgeoning powers may be more of a curse than a blessing.

I believe Shae Ford was planning to make the main character a female and the half dragon a male but changed it afterward. Never have I read such a whinny main character that is so emotional that makes me goes that's not 20+ year old male. I think shae needs to either go talk to more males and understand them or don't write male as a main character.

The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

The Blood Mirror is the action-packed new audiobook in the Lightbringer series by international best seller Brent Weeks. Stripped of both magical and political power, the people he once ruled told he's dead, and now imprisoned in his own magical dungeon, former emperor Gavin Guile has no prospect of escape. But the world faces a calamity greater than the Seven Satrapies has ever seen...and only he can save it.

Where does The Blood Mirror rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Not a bad listen.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Clearly this book is just a prelude...very little story progression.

What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

Great performance.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The Ending of the Light Bringer series... PART 1.
