Publisher's Summary

The Broken Eye continues the spectacular Lightbringer series from the New York Times best-selling author of The Black Prism and The Blinding Knife.

As the old gods awaken and satrapies splinter, the Chromeria races to find the only man who can still end a civil war before it engulfs the known world. But Gavin Guile has been captured by an old enemy and enslaved on a pirate galley. Worse still, Gavin has lost more than his powers as Prism—he can't use magic at all.

Without the protection of his father, Kip Guile will face a master of shadows 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 called The Broken Eye.

Great Book - Amazing Series

I’ve listened several times and keep finding more layers. There are a lot of really good points. Great narration. Excellent story. Exceptional depth to the characters- and variety. Someone mentioned about loving the right characters and hating others. Sometimes it was both together….also very creative about all the light-luxen theoretics. Basically a masterpiece

Well done

Weeks writes in a manner that keeps you engaged and interested. Some parts can seem confusing, but eventually end up making sense. You like the characters you're supposed to like and you hate the characters you're supposed to hate :)

Where Brent Weeks goes downhill

The first two books are amazing, if you want to read a series where an author creates something amazing and then throws it all away, then read this book

so long -- so little payoff

I know that everyone seems to love this series but I find that it just goes on and on and on without much happening. the long descriptions of a battle in which the battle accomplishes so little. it's like listening for 20 minutes just to find out that someone broke down a door and killed a bunch of people. and the character development just goes on and on. I appreciate that the characters are growing but the background narrative is absolutely killing me.
