The Way of Shadows
The Way of Shadows | Brent Weeks
From New York Times bestselling author Brent Weeks... For Durzo Blint, assassination is an art-and he is the city's most accomplished artist. For Azoth, survival is precarious. Something you never take for granted. As a guild rat, he's grown up in the slums, and learned to judge people quickly - and to take risks. Risks like apprenticing himself to Durzo Blint.But to be accepted, Azoth must turn his back on his old life and embrace a new identity and name. As Kylar Stern, he must learn to navigate the assassins' world of dangerous politics and strange magics - and cultivate a flair for death.

I read 34 books in March and some were quite chunky! My fave was definitely the Night Angel Trilogy - I highly suggest the full cast that Hoopla offers in two parts. Probably my next fave was Artemis such a cool sci fi book and then the Poppy War books and Last Night at the Telegraph Club.

I‘ve decided to officially give up on Maas after reading the disaster that is ACOSF.

"Words were another sword for a man who wielded them well." I can't remember if Durzo or Kylar said this but it really makes you think.

MrsBabki Amazing quote to choose. So powerful! 2y

Assassins! Brilliant fantasy with some good humour thrown in. And there was only a month between each book's release - perfect!
BTW hasn't that cover guy really mastered the look back 🤣

Finally finished. This was a struggle. Started and stopped many times, but I plowed through. I found the writing choppy and the dialogue immature. It just didn‘t work for me.

Derf I‘ve bailed on this in the past. Don‘t think I‘ll pick it up again anytime soon 😂🙌🏻 4y

It's been awhile since I've read a high fantasy novel, especially of the fat paperback variety. This book had been sitting on my shelf for years and it did not disappoint.

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

My back yard for the past week. I haven't read very much while here in Vegas but I'm only 200 pages away from the end of Way of Shadows. Hoping to get though a good chunk while enjoy the view from the rooftop of my hotel. #fantasy #vacation #currentread

Lately I've had this obsession with stories dealing with assassin's. It started during the Steam sale at the beginning of the year where I bought 4 Assassin's Creed games for cheap. Playing AC 1 made me want to pick up Way of Shadows which has been sitting on my shelf unread for a couple years now. I'm devouring it. I just finished AC 1 today and now it's on to AC 2. I've fallen into an assassin obsession and I can't stop! 😅

#febinbooks18 asked for #supernaturalpowers today.... This is part of my fantasy and Sci-fi shelf. #urbanfantasy is one of my favorite genres. So I have quite a variety of supernatural powers to show off! @bookisglee

For some reason, this book was not what I expected. I expected straight up assassinry, maybe something closer a to Locke lamora feel. This was bigger, with much more magic and hinted backstory. I‘m definitely finishing this series

I loved this book from the very first chapter. Unforgettable characters, a plot that kept me guessing, Nonstop Action, and the kind of in-depth storytelling that makes me fall in love with a book every time!!! #perfectkiller #wetboy #amazing #nightangel

So this book messed with my emotions and feels so much, the beginning was hard to get through but the plot and story was so good and the love story hit me in the feels. I absolutely loved it.

yougothope @jesnic27 I'm listening to the second book on audio book right now, it's still just as good as the first one. 5y

I really enjoyed this book, it started a little and the world building wasn't the best. But once you got into it it was really good- I had trouble putting it down. 😊

"Der Raum war vom Grundriss her knapp bemessen, aber die Decke war so hoch, dass sie in der Dunkelheit verschwand. Das vermittelte jenen, die befragt wurden, das Gefühl, in der Hölle Rede und Antwort stehen zu müssen. Dass in die Stühle, die Wände und selbst in den Boden kleine Dämonen, Drachen und schreiende Menschen eingraviert waren, trug nicht dazu bei, die Wirkung zu mäßigen. - Seite 29

Mehso-so

It lacks some world building, feels a little standard—you can tell it was the author's debut. Some of the characters were interesting—although I didn't find myself caring about many of them.

The end was full of twists I didn't see coming which was entertaining. There was a love thing that mostly made me roll my eyes, I just didn't care enough for the characters for it to matter.

I'll read book 2 at some point because I know his writing improves.

Bailedbailed

Oof I did not like this one. I almost bailed at about 4 different points. The magic took way too long to be explained, the writing was subpar with little bursts of beautiful imagery, and (this could be a problem with the audiobook) I got confused with the random expansion of the cast of characters at times.

⭐️3/4of 5

Claireluana I also bailed on this one! His new series about color magic is better, if you ever want to give him another shot. 6y
AlexandraGriffin @Claireluana thank you! I may have to try reading that series rather than listening to the audiobook, that might help too. 6y
