The nail-biting continuation to the Lightbringer series from New York Times bestseller Brent Weeks.

When does an empire fall?

The Seven Satrapies have collapsed into four-and those are falling before the White King's armies.

Gavin Guile, ex-emperor, ex-Prism, ex-galley slave, formerly the one man who might have averted war, is now lost, broken, and trapped in a prison crafted by his own hands to hold a great magical genius. But Gavin has no magic at all. Worse, in this prison, Gavin may not be alone.

Kip Guile will make a last, desperate attempt to stop the White King's growing horde. Karris White attempts to knit together an empire falling apart, helped only by her murderous and possibly treasonous father-in-law Andross Guile.

Meanwhile, Teia's new talents will find a darker use-and the cost might be too much to bear.

Together, they will fight to prevent a tainted empire from becoming something even worse.

I have respect for this book because it tried using an unreliable narrator, which is a very difficult technique to pull off well. I don't think Weeks managed it, but I love that he reminded the world that it is still a thing. I hope to see future authors use it well. I also enjoy how Weeks has shifted the perspective on some of the characters with this one, making me question my original assessment of many of them. I'd argue people who read Sanderson wouldn't care for this book because it is subtle.
