Oh Mr Weeks. You big meanie leaving so many threads yet untied... Guess we have to come back for more, then.

As is always the case with Mr Weeks (well, this Lightbringer series, anyway), the last 1/4-1/3 is virtually un-put-downable. I mean, I had to, to look after my family and go to the day job and do some of my own writing, but it was a struggle. [b:The Black Prism|7165300|The Black Prism (Lightbringer, #1)|Brent Weeks||7534979] was so un-put-downable that even after I finished reading it I carried it around with me for weeks, going back over a few favourite parts, admiring the cover (I got the first one). I am a big fan of this series and can't wait to have the whole thing read... although, the wondering what will happen is rather divine, too.

OK. A little objectivity. Is it perfect? No. Technically, I prefer a closer POV. …
