The Black Prism

By Brent Weeks (Audiobook, 2010)
Gavin Guile is the Prism, the most powerful man in the world. He is high priest and emperor, a man whose power, wit, and charm are all that preserves a tenuous peace. But Prisms never last, and Guile knows exactly how long he has left to live: Five years to achieve five impossible goals.

But when Guile discovers he has a son, born in a far kingdom after the war that put him in power, he must decide how much he's willing to pay to protect a secret that could tear his world apart.

  • "Brent Weeks is so good it's starting to tick me off." (Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Desert Spear).

  • "Weeks manages to ring new tunes on...old bells, letting a deep background slowly reveal its secrets and presenting his characters in a realistically flawed and human way." (Publishers Weekly on The Black Prism).

  • "The Blinding Knife is a wonderful work of high fantasy with engaging characters facing the perfect antagonists, set in a creatively-wrought and increasingly chaotic world brimful of imaginative magic and interesting politics. Weeks holds fast to the traditions of his genre while adding a compelling new flavor." (The Ranting Dragon).

  • "One of the best fantasies I've ever read." (Staffer's Book Review on The Blinding Knife ).
