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?

Loved every moment of the book. Tender in places, brilliant action and a stella cast. only regret is that it is over and I will have to wait for the next one.
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.
Book seems to be setting the stage for the final part. Not a lot happens but Brent still smashed it. Never once bored but not as much magic. The guy reading it totally gets the voices wrong from how I do them in my head ha.
I've actually never written a review before although I read a lot. But although I've really enjoyed all of Brent Weeks books, especially this series, the sensitive way he treated a matter at the end of the book had raised him to a new level in my eyes.
This whole series is great. Very original, well paced, great characters, but this is my favourite book so far.
I'm recommend this to any fantasy readers, especially women or men who love them.
one of the best books
the continues the stroy and adds in more exicitng twists to the plot
The confrontation between Gavin (Dazen) and Andross in the black luxin cell
Enjoyed the continued story and progression but after such a epic ending in the 3rd book and some truly awesome moments and big reveals I felt a little underwhelmed by this 4th books pacing and progression.
You lose a lot of kips magic progression and focus in this book, the final battle doesnt feel as well done as the other battles in previous books with kip barely using any magic whatsoever and feels like they have barely done anything the whole book.
Gavins scenes are by far the most interesting in the book and andros guiles interactions and reveals of his knowledge of gods and hints at locust beings.
It feels like a "setting up" for greater thigs to come in the next installment or the first half of a sanderson book. I eagerly await the next book in this series but feel ot was the weakest novel so far.
"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.
14 words are not enough for this, author and narrator are amazing. Orholm's b... beard.
