The first novel in the Night Angel trilogy, the breakneck epic fantasy from New York Times bestselling author Brent Weeks.

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

For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned to judge people quickly--and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.

But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics--and cultivate a flair for death.

Devour this blockbuster tale of assassination and magic by Brent Weeks, which has delighted readers all over the world--with over one million copies in print!

Let me just say I have only finished the first book. Having said that and having read reviews saying the 1st is not the best, I cannot wait to start the next 2 books having very much enjoyed the 1st. The biggest strength of the series, besides the pace, is it creates vivid images through description. Its world is both unique and very much original. The world skips to various characters and viewpoints. Thus the book takes getting used to, but does so in a way that does not reveal too much and you eventually understand the writing technique. The book feels like a movie, in that you feel like the scene is executed with precision and valuable details. The main characters journey in the first book starts out on a very high note, giving vivid details that are sometimes quite dark. This is a plust however as you really get a sense of just how cruel of a world this is, not just for the main character but for others in his position. Simply put he is looked down on, seen as weak and pathetic and getting no respect, all of these perceptions fade as he evolves from a nobody to a great and powerful assassin. Colorful descriptions of fights, the world itself, and its structures/building layouts are important as they put you in Azoths shoes and environment, you feel like your in the room watching. It also dives deep into how an assassin prepares, the main characters master views every detail as important, and his code/philosophy on life adds to it. It is hard to fully describe the book to someone without spoiling it, but I place this book personally very high on my list, and I have fully read Lord of the Rings. Give the book a chance and you wont regret it.
