The Broken Eye

By Brent Weeks (Hardcover Book, 2014)
As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find its lost Prism, the only man who may be able to stop catastrophe. But Gavin Guile is enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse, Gavin no longer has the one thing that defined him -- the ability to draft.

Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will have to face a master of shadows alone as his grandfather moves to choose a new Prism and put himself in power. With Teia and Karris, Kip will have to use all his wits to survive a secret war between noble houses, religious factions, rebels, and an ascendant order of hidden assassins, The Broken Eye.

  • "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).

  • "...A solid, entertaining yarn." (The Onion A.V. Club on The Black Prism).

  • "All in all The Black Prism is an A++ from me while the series has the potential to become one for the ages. The main flaw of The Black Prism is that it ends - despite 600+ pages and a reasonable ending point, I still wanted another 600 at least!" (Fantasybookcritic.blogspot.com on The Black Prism).

  • "Weeks has written an epic fantasy unlike any of its contemporaries. It is a truly visionary and original work, and has set the bar high for others in its subgenre." (graspingforthewind.com).
