"Weeks manages to ring new tunes on...old bells, letting a deep background slowly reveal its secrets and presenting his characters in a realistically flawed and human way."—Publishers Weekly on The Black Prism
"...A solid, entertaining yarn."—The Onion A.V. Club on The Black Prism
"All in all The Black Prism is
an A++ from me while the series has the potential to become one for the ages. The main flaw of The Black Prism
is that it ends - despite 600+ pages and a reasonable ending point, I still wanted another 600 at least!"—Fantasybookcritic.blogspot.com on The Black Prism
"Weeks has written an epic fantasy unlike any of its contemporaries. It is a truly visionary and original work, and has set the bar high for others in its subgenre."—graspingforthewind.com
