The gripping sequel to New York Times bestselling fantasy epic The Black Prism from Brent Weeks.

Gavin Guile is dying.

He'd thought he had five years left--now he has less than one. With fifty thousand refugees, a bastard son, and an ex-fiancée who may have learned his darkest secret, Gavin has problems on every side. All magic in the world is running wild and threatens to destroy the Seven Satrapies. Worst of all, the old gods are being reborn, and their army of color wights is unstoppable. The only salvation may be the brother whose freedom and life Gavin stole sixteen years ago.

Read the second book in Brent Weeks's blockbuster epic fantasy series that had Peter V. Brett saying, "Brent Weeks is so good, it's starting to tick me off!"

Brent Weeks has improved his writing a lot since the Night Angel trilogy. Definetly worth a read.

The biggest jump from good writer to great writer for Weeks came in the blinding knife.

Night angel was okay, although I thought the ending seemed VERY rushed, but Lightbringer is proving to be one of my favorite series of all time, definitely top 5. The unique magic system alone would warrant a higher spot on this list, but the characters inner dialogue is what makes these books flat out amazing

Found this series absolutely captivating. So many unexpected turns to it. Main characters are excellent! Dialog is spellbinding. Read them twice! Can't wait for this series to continue.
