Publisher's Summary

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who might still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism - he can't use magic at all.

Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels, and an ascendant order of hidden assassins called The Broken Eye.

    Story
    "Creatively strong, but poorly edited in places."
    What made the experience of listening to The Broken Eye the most enjoyable?

    You can't help but like the universe, Brent Weeks is padding out in this volume.

    Good characters and an interesting approach to fantasy fiction, with the only real weakness being instances of poorly edited repetition and the odd overly self indulgent, hammy internal monologue.


    What other book might you compare The Broken Eye to, and why?

    Sitting in the same tier as Raymond Feist (though he is arguably more imaginative), Weeks produces highly enjoyable romps that you don't have to think too much about.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favourite?

    Andross Guile is a great character for Simon Vance's vocal range. As a narrator, he often plays people with a voice too mature for their associated age group, but given that Andross is a ruthless octogenarian, Vance nails it with aplomb.


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

    Pass.


    Any additional comments?

    Not as good as the Night Angel Trilogy, but inventive and worth a look.

    "Phwor"

    Now that was a roller coaster ride of character development, action and great story telling. My only complaint is now having to wait for the next two books to see how this adventure ends.

    "Amazing!!!"

    I so enjoyed this book. After the other two in the series so far this just kept ratcheting up the tension whilst still satisfying with fabulous plot. When I think of why I enjoy this more than other fantasy epics like the way of kings and such it's because it is so colourful. Sure the plot is based on colour, but I mean the world and the characters are so vivid and colourful. This series has become a firm favourite just narrrowly beating the peer v Brett painted man series to top spot. Mr Weeks, I salute you.

    The narration is definitely among some of the best I have come across in my audible journey - not overly dramatic but well rounded. Adding to the story rather than diminishing or just being a neutral element. I haven't give the narration 5 stars simply because the writing got 5 and I had to scale down a little from that.

    "Absolutely awesome"

    The Broken Eye is absolutely awesome. Andross' manipulations start coming to fruition, the white is combating those manipulations, Gavin Guile is held prisoner and believed dead by many, Teia has become a spy, and Kip is making deals with his grandfather. Simon Vance does a great job with the narration making The Broken Eye by Brent Weeks more awesome, if that is even possible.
