All of that said, this book was somewhat of a letdown. It suffers from the middle-child syndrome the second book avoided. My best guess is that Weeks had three-and-a-half great books for this series and decided (or the publisher decided) to stretch it to four, rather than cut it to three. Broken Eye has more exposition, more navel-gazing, and less action than either book one or book two. Also, of the big questions we were left with at the end of The Blinding Knife, virtually all remain unanswered, or are answered unsatisfactorily. Fortunately, despite all this, Liv manages little screen time. Her motivations are pretty murky, she's a little boring, and I'm still kind of confused on what, exactly, superviolet is good for aside from writing coded messages. The Color Prince gets talked about a lot, but his perspective is virtually absent from this book--another reason I think this is one part of a two-part finale.
As usual, Kip is at his best when he's spouting off to a superior. The dialogue is effortlessly written, and the humor is above average as expected. I enjoyed reading The Broken Eye.Read more ›
I’ve made comments in other book reviews that I believe Brandon Sanderson is the best in the genre, but with each release from Weeks, he continues to make sure his name is still in that conversation. This third book is fantastic. Extremely well done. A+
Obviously, if I write why I was left this way then I will be ruining it for others and I don't want to be that person, but I will say don't be surprised if you are left uncaring about this series afterwards.
Beware... in the Ebook version the book ends at around 93 percent as there is the same huge appendix of world and magic info that was in the previous books.
