i can t believe that people can actually rate these books less than 5 stars and anything less than that is just unbelievable those are the people that don t enjoy good books THIS IS THE BEST SERIES OF books I HAVE EVER read i honestly think that there need to be books like this out there, cuz it seems like now a days every single book and their grandPA s story is nothing but a lust filled romance that include the obvious followings some really attractive guy which in real life would be gay some self conscious bitch that will either be a slut or have zero sexual experience or both, or all the female characters fall into one the two categories a vampire or two maybe a werewolf or four a plot so used it s a whore and a terrible message to send to our kids maybe thats why people do drugs BLAME THE STUPID booksyou see this book has none of the following there is love mixed into it but not romance its a thriller, with an amazing plot, unforgettable characters and just wow just WOW people come on i don t even know how to describe the book so i m just ganna tell you this read THE G DDAMN BOOK LADIES AND GENTLEMEN IT MAYBE THICK BUT I HEARD SOMEWHERE THAT SIZE MATTERS AND PEOPLE PREFER IT THATA WAY or were they referring to a penis o.
O hmmm no definitely the book D There is something about Durzo Blint that is immensely appealing Other characters came and went The main character, Kylar Stern, alternated between cold blooded killer, immature teen, and weepy pacifist Yet Durzo was always Durzo, a cold blood assassin excuse me, wetboy that was better than anyone in the art of killing That he has a secret past is no surprise, but when the surprise is revealed in book two, it feels both immense and incredibly amusing.
The first book in the series starts off dark There s child molestation, murder, and an overall feeling of despair and surrender to everything evil inside men s hearts While some might not be prepared for how far the author goes, the setting is necessary for Kylar s development, as well at he redemptive themes that become far prevalent in books two and three.
Despite Kylar s random mood swings, he was an overall enjoyable main character Like Durzo, he is a killer at the top of his game The special powers he inherits halfway through the first book are both over the top and yet consistently controlled It may feel like the author is cheating, but at the same time, I know he s not Don t read The Night Angel Trilogy expecting anything mundane Mr Weeks wants to kill gods, destroy cities, and have his characters play with artifacts older than entire civilizations It gets a little overwhelming having ten different world destroying creatures, weapons, and artifacts all being swapped, stolen, and revealed, but by the third book things calm down and start making sense.
Speaking of making sense, Mr Weeks is not the best at introducing characters you don t know There are plenty of times I d be reading, start a new chapter, and then wonder if I had skipped a part somewhere along the line Random people in random locations get thrown out often Have faith in the author, though they ll come around in time, and make perfect sense MR Weeks might not be subtle, but he s effective at not messing around.
Would I read by Mr Weeks Most certainly Other than a few odds and ends, this was a series after my own heart And all because of Durzo He s the star of the show whenever he makes his entrance, and by the end, you might find yourself wishing for another book dedicated solely to him.
There is a lot to love and hate about these books They are the perfect example the what I like and dislike about modern fantasy The writing I really enjoyed Weeks has a very good grasp of character and I was sucked in very quickly as I started to care about the protagonist The world building and setting was top notch I also loved that the author was unafraid to move time along The author was willing to tell the important parts of the story and skip years of back story What I hate about these books is I can t recommend them to my younger brother Having just read George R.
R Martian s Fire and Ice saga or what is written of it so far it seems every fantasy book now needs an R rating and the harder the R the better Weeks defends this some in saying that you have to move from darkness to light He says, Hope isn t vibrant unless it has to be chosen over despair While I agree in principle, I disagree in degree I think we have culturally lost the power of subtlety I am reminded of the scene in the Searchers where John Wayne discovers the cabin in which butchery took place We never see in the cabin and it is far dramatic and horrifying for it Today a director would just show us the cabin and use as much blood and gore as possible We no longer seem to hint at the horrible, we paint it with the widest brush possible This same problem cropped up in the authors writing of females characters In the first book I thought they were created with some taste In the second and third, they seemed to morph into hyper sexualized characters I felt the females who were very interesting became characters written for 16 year old boys Boys who have no understanding of the complexities of feminine beauty, they only see breast and butts It started to read like sex sell so just add Hence my love hate relationship with modern fantasy A great story told, yet told with the broad brush of sex and violence.
Okay this book is crazy intense Nothing You think will happen does I mean Nothing I have had to put this book down so many times cos it s so gruesome in areas that I either had gotten light headed and broken out into a cold sweat or I had almost thrown up This book evokes every emotion a person could possibly have and then some It s like non stop suspense, then action, then warm fuzzy heartfelt feelings, then anger, then sadness etc Then the cycle starts all over again And like I said, everything you think will happen doesn t I ve only guessed 1 or 2 things correctly out of all 3 books This book makes you insane As soon as you put it down you have to pick it back up And did I mention Kylar Dude is off the chain awesome.
I have seen alot of good reviews for this trilogy That is what caused me to read it Even though it does feel like, regarding it s popularity, in comparison with a good film that hardly gets any play, unless you see it under the sundance film festival or something It could definitely use mainstream love that s for sure It s a deep deep story This is riddled with LOTS of magic, violence, redemption Evil to it s very core Major and I mean major sacrifice Beliefs, spirituality It can be very sexual sensual but also at times just flat out degrading But not where the story suffers These degrading scenes are essential to the character or scene that is occurring the time.
Underneath the many layers of all 3 books, it boils down to these 4 questions Who are you What do you stand for What s your purpose And when those answers are not in harmony with what you want, will you have the heart to fulfill your purpose anyway This Trilogy is beyond deep I highly recommend you read it The deal for the 3 books in one, is worth it.
Oddly homophobic and misogynistic Compelling story but a SEVERE lack of well rounded female characters who aren t in power due to marriage or sex Also Every gay character was molested, abused, raped, or inherently cruel When I think of heteronormative and paternalistic behavior or setting, I like to think of George R R Martin or Patrick Rothfuss, who create a mediaeval world that is similar to ours, in that it portrays a strong male dominated world, but has the sensibility to include characters who break those norms Either through strong females who are well rounded, couragous, and fully realized as mothers, wives, warriors, mages, preistesses, prostitutes, etc or characters who are gay but just as a fact of life like being blonde or brunette, and not as a psychological trauma So when I say, heteronormative, it is not because I am a gay man who prefers or chooses exclusively to read authors and novels that are NON normative it s because I ve read authors who ARE following gender, historical, and literary norms, but still manage to instil their open mindedness and the well roundedness of their skills through their craft.
BUT WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID, I CANNOT PUT THESE books DOWN THE STORY IS STILL VERY COMPELLING Just wish I weren t so distracted by my thoughts of gender and sexuality.
You will however find touches of dark.
I like this one and it comes just short of hitting my 5 star rating, only missing because when compared to the ones I love the most, I can t quite rate it that high Still a great read.
So, join Kylar, Durzo Blint, Elene and the characters that populate this book Learn the politics, magic and subtlety of Midcyru Learn of Wetboys, Magi and Magaelearn about, The Night Angel.
