    Discover the origins of Durzo Blint in this original novella set in the world of Brent Weeks' New York Times best-selling Night Angel trilogy.... "I got a bit of prophecy," the old assassin said. "Not enough to be useful, you know. Just glimpses. My wife dead, things like that to keep me up late at night. I had this vision that I was going to be killed by forty men, all at once. But now that you're here, I see they're all you. Durzo Blint."

    A nice add on

    This is a nice little Novella. Brent Weeks is a good writer who properly balances pace and description. It gives a nice extra insight into Durza, some..Show More »

    Gaelan Starfire is a farmer, happy to be a husband and a father; a careful, quiet, simple man. He's also an immortal, peerless in the arts of war. Over the centuries, he's worn many faces to hide his gift, but he is a man ill-fit for obscurity, and all too often he's become a hero, his very names passing into legend:

    Brilliant sorry, not so brilliant narration

    Love the story, this series is very engaging, highly recommended book. The narrator's style doesn't suit it, in my opinion. His accentuation of every ..Show More »

    The perfect killer has no friends. Only targets. For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art. And he is the city's most accomplished artist, his talents required from alleyway to courtly boudoir. For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned the hard way to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

    Not Grimdark, but a good start to a series

    This is the first book I have listened to from the Author. I knew before I started the book that was could have been classified under the Grimdark gen..Show More »

    Kylar has rejected the assassin's life. In the wake of the Godking's violent coup, both his master and his closest friend are dead. His friend was Logan Gyre, heir to Cenaria's throne, but few of the ruling class survive to mourn his loss. So Kylar is starting over: new city, new companions, and new profession. But when he learns that Logan might be alive, trapped and in hiding, Kylar faces an impossible choice. He could give up the way of shadows forever, and find peace with his young family.

    Superb.

    Book 1 was great - this is better. We delve deeper into the characters, and indeed meet some new ones. Some of them are grim, some heroic, but all are..Show More »
