The Way of Shadows (The Night Angel Trilogy) On hindsight I should have read The Way of Shadows more carefully because I'm really not sure how I feel about it. Although I wasn't expecting Lightbringer standards, I didn't think I'd find the storyline unclear or that I'd be confused. And I don't know if my confusion was from laziness due to my part or if some of the plot was…confusing. My confusion lies with the sudden (and, to me, jarring) introduction of the kakari. Although it gave the characters purpose, it just seemed a little out of the blue. I think a second read will clarify the role of the kakari within the story (I hope). A lot of fans seem to hero worship the two main characters, Durzo and Kyler. This is what I feel about them: meh. They were interesting enough, but not so much that I'd tattoo their names across my face {for the record I don't think anyone has done that}. I wish some of the non-main characters had more page time though. Dorian the cheeky oracle {now his name I would tattoo across my face}, Niner the creative curser {"You shitting… shitting... shit!" - best line in the book} and Logan the oblivious hormonal teenager. Still, the main annoyance of this book was only a minor one and it was one regarding romance. Kyler and Elene's romantic interactions were soppy; some of the dialogue was pretty cheesy too. On the other hand, Durzo's romantic escapades were far more to my taste. Maybe it's cos I'm an evil heartless b*tch, but I loved the Momma K twist at the end .I'm not really mad about this book - it hasn't made me go "OMG when the hell does the next one come out???" like I did for The Black Prism.

slow start. good finish. Can't wait to pick up the next book.

The first several chapter are really back and forth and honestly quite difficult to understand. New characters are introduced back to back to back which make it hard to understand their significance to the story and main character/s. I can understand those that drop the book somewhere within these chapters or shortly thereafter but those that stick through them and endeavor to decipher the web of characters are in for a treat.

Personally I found the magic system to be quite intriguing.

Overall a solid read with some flaws that can be overlooked considering the rest of the book. ( )

I've discovered that dark fantasy is absolutely not my cup of tea. I'm an optimist, and reading nihilist points of view is exhausting and rather bleak. I also think Weeks crammed way too much plot into what could have been a taut and interesting thriller. Instead, we get lovesick teenagers and magic and international intrigue and double-crossing and a ton of archetypal characters that is just a little TOO MUCH for me. I'm glad to have been given this book for a Cannonball book exchange, and I'm glad I gave this a try. And now I know that Brent Weeks and I do not belong to the same tribe. ( )
