Publisher's Summary

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.

As the armies of the White King defeat the Chromeria and old gods are born anew, the fate of worlds will come down to one question: who is the Lightbringer?

So damn good!

Was in stitches with Kip's campfire moments, disturbed by the prison, and loved every moment of this book. Going to be torture waiting for the next book.

great characters amd magic

Darkness, bad language, violence and sexual content warning, but otherwise everything is amazing. The darkness is countered with a great and brilliant light. The characters, particularly Kip are on the list of somenof my gavourites ever.

Brilliant

The Author's Note at the end made me love Brent Week's as an author even more. What a great man you are for drawing attention to something that is real and not to be ashamed of. Men have "problems", and so do women.

The book though, AMAZING. My favourite of the 4. Not a fan of the battle scenes as they always make my eyes glaze over (as with any book), but the revelations in this was awesome. Now I need the next book NOW.

More like a Prelude to the last book.

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.

A fantasy series for the Hall of Fame

If fantasy is your genre, and it is if you love the works of JK Rowling, GRRM, Robin Hobb and Patrick Rothfuss (to name a few of the greats!), then this series is well within your spectrum ;-)
Expect enduring mysteries and plot twists you never saw coming, expect to fall in love with the most likely and unlikely of characters, and revel in the structure of this world, with all it's intrigues, complexities of character relationships, and wholesome magical system. I had doubts reading other reviews of this series, that complained the author had objectified the female characters, but as a woman I never felt this was a flaw in the series. I believe Brent Weeks has produced a realistic represtation of life in his choice of portrayal, that is modern and uncensored. Thank you and well done! Eagerly awaiting The Burning White :D

Again Weeks brings us an amazing story

the Blood Mirror is not as good as the other three books. but the progession of the book makes me very excited for the fifth and sixth book. Weeks is an incredible story smith and the voice narration by Vance is still entertaining.

everything is coming to a head

Ever since I randomly bought a Brent Weeks book for something to read I have never been disappointed and the Blood Mirror is another example. So many threads being woven together in this the fourth book of the series but still leaving the story lines open and leaving me itching at the end of the book for the next volume in the story. The Characters have gone through massive changes over the books in attitudes and confidence. This you would expect from Kipp but the other character don't disappoint in that respect either. Some stars rising, others falling.

The Narration is good, the story developments show an overall story line linking everything together, the characters can be engaging and make you cheer for the 'Mighty' when they have a win and worry for them when the plots or fate are against them.

I don't know about you but I quickly devoured this book when it came out and have been waiting eagerly for the next volume!

Half a book

I loved the earlier books, and I love this one. However, it feels like he had to split the book (which is the case), and the end result suffered. I'm super excited for the next one though, hopefully this one got a lot of setup out of the way.

Superb both in story and speech

I enjoy fantasy incredibly and have read it since I was 12. Over the years I have read many and started audiobooks around 10 years ago while on the move. 32 now and this book is amazing, the story is set by great characters who live, fight, joke, love, have sex, stumble and have no clue what to do and experience grief.

It feels like real people in a fictional world. Upwards of that the audible version is just grand. The performance is solid and carries emotion and various characters perfectly.

Highly recommended!

Same awesome world

I love this world. The magic systems is inspired and the world deep and rich.

The story is also great, but... after finishing listening it almost seems like this is book 3.5 and I was waiting for the meat that was book 4.

I just fear that it will be another long wait for the final book in the series.

Next one, please

I expected more to be honest. Love this series, and this book answered some questions, had wonderful exciting spins, but alienated me from Kip. I’m just not invested in him anymore and feel like I wouldn’t have missed much if I just skipped his story in this book entirely.

I hope there will be another book soon.

Continuing awe inspiring story telling..

This story gets better and better, I can't wait for the next installment. It wS a shame when it ended.

The plot thickens, twists and turns and at no point do the characters become unbelievable or is text wasted. Fantasy writing at its best.
