FromNew York Timesbestselling author Brent Weeks...
For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art-and he is the city's most accomplished artist.

For Azoth, survival is just the beginning. He was raised on the streets and knows an opportunity when he sees one-even when the risks are as high as working for someone like Durzo Blint.

Azoth must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and become the perfect killer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I thought I had spent enough time reading reviews when I settled on this trilogy. Apparently not While there is some entertainment and the story premise is interesting the cons outweigh the pros by quite a margin. I am currently half way through and determined to finish it but one more profession of Kylar's love for Elene might just be the straw that broke the proverbial camels back. I am secretly hoping she is somehow eliminated from the story so he can get back back to being at least somewhat interesting. If you want to read something intelligent, original and very well written then treat yourself to the "Gentleman Bastard Series" by Scott Lynch. This one is a pass.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engaging The trilogy, although long, is not a complicated read. It is descriptive, creative, and has a wide range of different character types to keep the reader engaged and entertained.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my faves. I picked this series up about 9 years ago, closer to the release of the first novel. It was huge compared to what I was usually reading at that time but the detail and intensity kept me coming back for more. I could hardly wait until the next novel was published and then I would shred through them once they arrived! He sets such a good stage and from there slowly builds. I love the incredible craftsmanship he shows with his characters. The sheer volume of them but also the complex interactions and developments of each.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very good beginning, but then it gets very average The beginning of this series held a lot of promise; it was entertaining and interesting, if not overly challenging. I read the trilogy, so I'm uncertain at what point Weeks got lost, but by the middle the promise was long gone; the story was still entertaining but not very interesting. Of the many regressions evident throughout, Weeks spent the first book describing everything in detail, from the shortest journey to each characters thoughts. By the last book, he was just placing characters in the positions he needed them to be in, with them covering 1/2 Midcyru without any mention that they were even about to travel. If you are looking for an easy, though long, read this may be reasonable. If you want anything more, this isn't the author for you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from He tells a good story... ... but not particularly well. "Derivative" would be the best word to describe the world he's created. His concepts are clearly cobbled together with bits taken from Robert Jordan, George RR Martin and pastiches of actual cultural tropes (he uses the word "meister" for a type of mage, a direct rip from Martin's "maesters" in SOIAF; his red-haired, caucasian samurai culture, the Ceurai; names like Lantano Garuwashi, an italian/japanese hybrid; his use of the japanese word "kage" [shadow] for his criminal organization), which is not to say that he doesn't do so in an entertaining fashion. Unfortunately, his writing lacks the sophistication of the writers I've mentioned. This leads to his world never quite taking on a strong enough texture of reality; when he describes filth, I dont' smell it, when he describes tragedy, I don't cry. I think that's it in a nutshell: He DESCRIBES things, but doesn't manage to make them real. All things considered, though, you'll be rooting for the good guys and hissing at the bad guys and going "cool monster!" more than once. It's good, light fare, most suited to younger readers, in my opinion, say teenagers, but not more experienced readers of literature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it At first I was skeptical of how inexpensive it was for a whole series. Turned out to be one of the best trilogies I have ever read

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trilogy Ever! I absolutely loved this series. The characters were amazing and the feeling that you got going on this journey with the main character was absolutley amazing! I wish that he had more books that we could read. 3 books isn't enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Books!! I absolutely loved the first and the second book in the series, unfortunately it is taking me too long to read the third one. Obviously my favourite characters are Durzo and predictable? :P But seriously props to Brent Weeks for writing these fascinating books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastically addictive! Brent Weeks is my new favorite author. In this trilogy he has something for everyone. As we follow Azoth on his journey, we are taken on a journey that is charged with emotion, action, and adventure. The characters and the intertwining of all the stories and actions within these books are so compelling, believable, and convincing that I was lost in the world of Midcyru and unable to put the books down. Brent Weeks style of writing makes compelling reading that I found myself addicted in no time. I am looking forward to the future writings from Brent Weeks, of which I am sure there will be many. Brent Weeks is to the science fiction/fantasy genre as Stephen King is to the horror genre.
