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.

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.

The impossible has happened. The Lord Ruler is dead. But so too is Kelsier, the man who masterminded the triumph. The awesome task of rebuilding the world has been left to his protege Vin - a onetime street urchin, now the most powerful Mistborn in the land. Worryingly for her, Vin has become the focus of a new religion, a development that leaves her intensely uneasy.

well read and engaging. The narrator did a good job with most characters and the story flowed. The idea of the plot is original.
