The Broken Eye

As the old gods awaken the Chromeria is in a race to find its lost Prism the only man who may be able to stop catastrophe Gavin Guile But Gavin's enslaved on a galley and when he finally escapes he finds himself 455 starsThe Broken Eye is an installment filled with an intense focus on secrecy revelations politics and world building The Broken Eye is the third—and the second largest—book in the Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks; it’s uite crazy to think that this is the third book already and yet I still found myself constantly surprised by the revelations plot twists and developments I’ve mentioned this before there aren’t many high fantasy series with a plotting level that reached what Weeks achieved with this series On my reread the benefit of hindsight allowed me to witness the hidden breadcrumbs planted into the previous two books that weren’t possible on my first read I can’t stress this highly enough as far as the expansion to the plotline and lore of the series goes The Broken Eye contained a lot of crucial information surrounding the mythology and secrets that have been mentioned several times in the previous two books The prophecy of the Lightbringer Diakoptes Orholam the Nine Kings the Order of the Broken Eye Paryl drafting the Blinding Knife; all of these are wonderful and honestly needed additions to the series which I’m sure will end up being super important for the remaining of the series Picture The Broken Eye by breath art Jian GuoDue to the fact that this is the third book of the series I’m going to refrain from talking about the plotlines to avoid spoilers; I would instead talk about why I loved this book Majority of the reasons why I loved The Broken Eye were because of the character developments given to the characters mainly regarding their storylines abilities and motivations Kip and Teia in my opinion are the two central characters in The Broken Eye Although it’s true that in The Blinding Knife Kip had the most perspective chapters to read even than Gavin the story could still be interpreted to revolved heavily around Gavin; this isn’t the case in this book Almost every major revelations and story progression in this book happened because of Kip I find this to be uite astonishing; Kip has grown a lot since his first appearance in The Black Prism He’s now physically stronger he’s considerably mature and he’s gradually learning what it means to be in charge of his life and friends Seeing how much he changed because of the harsh events forcefully put upon him in the previous two books was the highlight of this book and maybe even for the rest of the series It’s satisfying to read about his relationship with Gavin Andross Karris and of course his friends in the Blackguards “Don’t judge a man by what he says his ideals are judge him by what he does Look at what the Color Prince has done They’re wrong Teia They’re liars and murderers It doesn’t mean everything we do is right It doesn’t mean our house doesn’t need a thorough cleaning I just don’t think we need to burn it to the ground to do it” I also loved how Kip’s story powerfully connects to Teia’s incredible character development I’ve mentioned that Teia is the best female character of the series in my previous review and The Broken Eye amplified this notion Not only she’s the second character with the most perspective chapters Teia goes through a lot of struggle here not only physically but mentally and I also found her relationship development with Kip and Karris to be incredibly fun and engaging to read Plus it was immensely intriguing to see her develop her paryl drafting abilities even further The magic system in Lightbringer is complex multi layered and intricate; Weeks did an amazing job in coming up with the magic system of this series but paryl—plus one luxin I shall not name for now—drafting in particular was outstandingly crafted It’s the aptest style of magic for espionage and assassins; I haven’t read The Night Angel trilogy by Brent Weeks but I’ve heard that it’s a fantasy series with assassins and ninjas as the central focus so this might’ve played a role in enhancing the uality of the sections surrounding spying deceptions espionage and assassinations in this book “This world has only two kinds of people villains and smiling villains” Contrary to what we’ve read in the previous two books Gavin didn’t have many chapters to read here His palms are sweaty knees weak arms are heavy Gavin is going through hell As if there hasn’t been enough damage inflicted upon him Weeks put him through hell even in this book The fact that Gavin doesn’t have many POV chapters doesn’t mean that he’s not important By this point of the series his presence and role within the overarching narrative and complexities of the world have become too pivotal to dismiss; every piece of new revelations from his past is something that’s utterly worth remembering going forward with the series and I’m super excited to find out how it all unfolds All the other characters Karris Ironfist and the member of the Blackguards also weren’t neglected; Weeks made sure that every character that has appeared in the series so far has a role instead of just a side character that appeared a few times and then forgotten “This is how tyrants fall By destroying their people they destroy themselves” As I mentioned at the beginning of this review The Broken Eye is a book that focuses its narrative on secrets espionage and revelations; light cannot be chained and the same can be said for the truths The Broken Eye serve as a remarkable halfway point of the series; it provides answers raises uestions and it shifts the storyline towards an unpredictable fate for the characters I loved The Blinding Knife slightly but it doesn’t change my opinion that the plot and uality of the three books in the series so far have been splendid Only two books left in the series now I will continue my binge reread onward to The Blood Mirror immediatelyYou can order the book from Book Depository Free shipping You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions

Ood Forest Andross Guile thinking his son Gavin lost tasks his two grandsons with stopping the advance Kip and his psychopathic half brother Zymun will compete for the ultimate prize who will become the next Pris Another fun read with likeable characters interesting plot and a really uniue and well developed world This one wasn't uite as good as the last one mostly due to the fact that the plot meandered a bit in comparison but it was still really enjoyable and I'm really excited for the final installment Gavin's sections in this one were probably the weak link The hero suffering in captivity plot line is one that I often find to be pretty dull and it took up pretty much all of Gavin's arc in this one The upsides were some cool backstory in his flashbacks his dealings with Eiren Malargos which were incidentally some of the best written scenes in the entire book Eirene was a great secondary character who was convincingly written as a good woman who was pushed to some extreme and immoral actions by circumstance and Gavin's uick witted plotting was a really cool way to show that he could still be formidable even stripped of his magic and a dramatic fall from grace arc after Gavin seemed like such a Gary Stu back in book 1Kip continued his character development and his was probably my favourite arc in this book Kip found himself in the middle of dramatic schemes and plots while trying to uncover some intriguing mysteries and still continuing his character development and trying to reconcile his various duties into a place for himself in the world As Kip has become less of a pussy throughout the series he's become and likeable and I'm really interested to see how he ends the series Karris also had a really strong arc After disliking her in the first book because she seemed to be a pretty lazy example of the action girl trope and being largely indifferent to her in the second she underwent some really well done character development in this one Her struggles to control her emotions were nicely done and I was a huge fan of her scenes with Kip and the White who incidentally joined Andross as being an absolutely incredible secondary character in this one and who in hindsight I realize had been pretty swag every time she appeared previously as well I wasn't a big fan of Teia in this one as she became something of a Mary Stu In addition to being a girl who is able to compete with highly trained grown ass men in unarmed combat she also apparently has super speshul magical powers that virtually no one else has and that allow her to kill pretty much anyone without leaving any trace incidentally while I really liked him in his previous appearance I uickly started to dislike Murder Sharpe in this one for much the same reason I dislike Teia Of course I'm not a fan of the secret society trope in general except for the Stonecutters episode of the Simpsons which was awesomeOh shit double brackets it's happening I did however enjoy some of the backstory and lore that came up in Teia's sections as well as the mystery and cloak and dagger intrigueI also think this book suffered a bit from the lack of screen time of the Colored Prince In the last book his constant presence albeit through the POV of annoying Liv who fortunately had her screen time slashed and was far less annoying when she did appear provided a really cool sense of danger as it built him up to be a worthy antagonist to the good guys and hyping up their inevitable collision This one in comparison seemed to lose some of that focus and intensity I really appreciated in the last book how Weeks went out of his way to show the struggles the Color Prince encountered and the ualities intelligence charisma ability to make persuasive arguments strong grasp of diplomacy and military strategy he showed to overcome them as it did a really cool job of building him up as a dangerous and worthy adversary Too many books just hand wave the bad guys into lucky positions while the heroes toil away this also appeared in this book to some extent with the annoying ZymunOverall this was a really enjoyable read with a strong cast of likeable characters a cool magic system an intriguing plot and a uniue world and I'm really psyched for the finale
