Do yourself a favor- read this book. Excellent dark fantasy. Full of action, anti-heroes, moral dilemmas, and twists/turns. If you are a big fan of unicorns and dragons making sweet love magic manifested thru song then just walk away. If you want to quench your insatiable thirst for soul bruising, blood drenched, coming of age assassins packaged up in smart crash-cart induced writing then Weeks does not disappoint.

The first in Brent Weeks' Night Angel Trilogy, The Way of Shadows is a gripping read. Not for the feint of heart this book can be fairly brutal at times (especially in a large chunk of the early book that deals with children) but if you are undaunted you will be treated to an exciting tale of assassins (I'm sorry, wetboys) and sorcery.

In the past I’ve had issues with books that have children as main characters. They are usually written as mini-adults or innocent victims, many times without the emotional depth and development of adult characters. But I absolutely loved Azoth! There were many complicated moral dilemmas addressed in this book, and it was refreshing to read a new author who tackled these in unpredictable ways. The only reason I can't give this book five stars is a few stylistic issues, mainly that the basic country and society it takes place in was never well explained. But this is the first book of 3, so I'm hoping they only get better from here.

Azoth is a street kid, stealing to eat and having most of that stolen from him. He has only two friends and plenty of enemies. Durzo Blint is his complete opposite. Tough, harsh and smart, working as an assassin and earning plenty of money. No one bothers him and lives. Azoth wishes he could be like that and asks Blint to take him on as an apprentice. Blint refuses, but Azoth is persistant. The question is, will he succeed in wearing Blint down, or will he end up dead, either by the harsh life in the streets or at Blint's own hand?

Really good book. Intriguing characters and an interesting fantasy world. Simple writing; nothing fancy, just tell it like it is, a style very suited for the characters. My only complaint with this story is that I felt like too many characters were introduced too fast, and I wasn't always clear on what one person's relationship was to another. Overall a superb novel for those who enjoy a dark and mysterious glimpse into a harsh fantasy world.

I started to read this book and could not put it down. There are many twist that keep you interested. The characters are great. The way he builds them up, it is like you know them. I cant wait to read the next two and any more from Brent Weeks

"Synopsis" by , For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art - and he is the city's most accomplished artist.

For Kylar Stern, just surviving is a struggle. As a guild rat, he's learned to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, he must turn his back on everything he has ever known.
