Last Book in the Series

This last book in the series ties it all together and is absolutely phenomenal. It pulls the world built by Brent Weeks into a constraint knot of revelation. I cannot fathom the imagination behind this, it is truly a masterpiece.

Amazing

I wish there was more!! I could keep reading this series forever. All the characters are so well developed and there are some surprisingly twists and turns. (also keep listening to the very end past the acknowledgements... The author gives you another paragraph that's well worth the listen!)

Continues the trend down of the series

From the midpoint onwards of this series the tempo changes, off to a great start then we follow the mighty like a Harry Potter book. The ending the author makes the mistake of thinking he created a deep character connection and that the reader is invested in their emotions, pages of uninspiring dialogue. Very well performed, disappointing series after a good start.

Brilliant!!!!!!!

I am SO disappointed that’s the last of the series!!
But what a magnificent ending it was!!
Brent is an exceptional author and Simon Vance an exceptional voice actor, I can not praise either of them highly enough!

Fantastic finale to an amazing fantasy series

Great performance from Simon Vance. Great story. Satisfying conclusions for some characters, heartbreaking outcomes for others. This series will stay in my mind for years to come.

Disappointed

To long, endless monologues. Sad for a really good story. Love the magic system. The magic beyond the founding system poorly explained

I have never fallen so in love with fictional char

Simon Vance is a genius. Along with Stephen Fry, he is by far my favorite narrator. Perfect for bringing to life the amazing characters in the Lightbringer series. Brent weeks have created characters so believable, flawed and strong that it comes within a hairs breath of being a self help book. I love that they act like real people. The story is sublime. I was genuinely sad when it ended.

Dumb

People make bad decisions as obvious plot devices so they have scenarios to escape from. Its just unbelievable how idiotic the characters are. And the ending, the pièce de résistance of stupidity, just leaves you scratching your head...

Great read. Light but funny and moving.

There are more sub plots in this than GOT. Many sided and moving. But a lighter look at serious topics as well. The characters and the character descriptions are excellent. Great read. And a great performance from the performer.

An excellent end to a great series.

Brent Weeks has fully completed the Lightbringer Saga and it was totally worth it. This series is worth it and he is easily on of the fantasy greats alongside Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson and Tolkien.

Storytelling at its finest.

I'll keep it short and sweet: if you like engaging stories, fantasy or otherwise,
colourful characters to genuinely care about and laugh at their playful banter, unique and vivid world building, fast paced adventures and epic battles, then do yourself a favour and get more of Brent Week's writing into your life.
By far one of the most remarkable authours I had the pleasure of stumbling upon,
who's works give a sense of time well spent, leaving one all the richer for it.
