Publisher's Summary

Logan Gyre is king of Cenaria, a country under siege, with a threadbare army and little hope. He has one chance---a desperate gamble, but one that could destroy his kingdom. In the north, the new Godking has a plan. If it comes to fruition, no one will have the power to stop him. Kylar Stern has no choice. To save his friends---and perhaps his enemies---he must accomplish the impossible: assassinate a goddess.

Beautiful, Horrible, and Fantastic ending!

An amazing fantastic ending for Brent Week's first fantasy masterpiece! The ending will rip your heart out and make you listen again! Loved every second. Brent Weeks made a worthy ending for this Fantasy world, I hope and fear for the day he returns to this series, if he chooses to continue with this world.

Beautiful and tragic

The story is dark, beautiful, and cunning. The author does an amazing job of ending the trilogy and left me breathless. I would recommend this to any Brandon Sanderson or George Martin fan. Excellently done ❤️

Sappy sappy sappy

First let me say that the ideas and world-building in the series is great and Brent Weeks has a wonderful imagination. But my god could this book have used some serious editing. By the end the plot become so convoluted and disorganized that it loses its meaningfulness. But that doesn't stop the author from trying to make you feel connected through sheer repetition of someone professing their love and or crying every page of the book. I left feeling disappointed in the unrealized potential the books clearly have.

Best of the trilogy

The Night Angel Trilogy grows increasingly multi-threaded, leaving the reader wondering where Weeks is ultimately going. He finally ties almost all threads together in a memorable conclusion that is worth the effort. Narrator Paul Boehmer improves as the book goes on and finishes with fine drama.

My thoughts:

This is one of the best stories that has ever been put into text. The instances where good people must do bad things are a recurring theme and it brings a large degree of relateability to the characters. Push through the first 100pgs of book two and it's beyond worth it. These books brought tears to my ever-dry eyes.

Get lost in this world

After you read enough novels, you begin to anticipate outcomes, but this series really added so many new twists and characters that made it great.

I promised a review after book 3

Enough series I've listened to recently have started out well enough, but somewhere along the line left me with only a lukewarm feeling which did not demand I buy the next book. (This is NOT one of those!) So I said I would review it if I liked it enough to read the whole series...

One of the things I liked best about this series was that it didn't point you at one climactic event that you knew would happen at the end of book 3. There were a series of events, each happening because of other actions, that lead throughout the series. No fillers, no little plot devices. At no point did I put it down believing I knew what would happen next.

The narration was excellent; well suited to the story.

I truly enjoyed the whole series, and I really want more! I can't think of a better endorsement than that!

Excellent conclusion to series.

Beyond the Shadows wraps up the Night Angel Trilogy. I very much enjoyed this book, as it takes Azoth from Apprentice to hero. He must however juggle his responsibilities to his calling and his new wife. This book is the most exciting of the three, as the action is almost non stop. The conclusion wraps up most of the plot lines, but seems to leave the possibility of another book some time in the future.

Overall, I really enjoyed all three books in this trilogy. The story was very good, and Paul Boehmer is one of my favorite narrators. I would recommend this series to anyone.

Too much pointless sex

Really liked the first book, and for the most part enjoyed this one. There is way too much pointless love story and sex that doesn't add to the story at all.
